The scores for the Samsung’s Exynos and Snapdragon-powered versions of the phone recently showed up at the Geekbench website. Samsung’s Exynos models seem to outperform Snapdragon 835. Samsung’s Exynos 8895-equipped one score better in both Single-core and multicore tests.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Has Just Done The Impossible!
Well, if we take a look at the past Samsung has a habit of releasing two versions of its flagship phones, one with latest Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset and another one with the Samsung Exynos chipset.
This all started with the J Series of Samsung smartphones. Samsung’s “J” series are the first one to feature two version of a chipset. Well, the trend is likely to continue with upcoming Galaxy S8 and S8+
Well, this two flagship will feature Snapdragon 835 chip in some regions, and Exynos 8895 chipset will be featured in other markets. Well, now the Question arises which one will be better?
Well, the good news is the scores for the Exynos, and Snapdragon-powered versions of the phone recently showed up at the Geekbench website. In the below screenshot SM-G955F if expected to be Exynos model and the SM-G955U will be the Snapdragon version.
You won’t believe that Samsung’s Exynos models seem to outperform Snapdragon 835. Samsung’s Exynos 8895-equipped one score better in both Single-core and multicore tests by scoring 1978 and 6375 which is slightly higher than Snapdragon 835’s score of 1929 and 6084. The difference might be small, but it’s there.
What’s more interesting is if we compare Samsung Galaxy S8 with Apple’s latest iPhones, the Galaxy S8 doesn’t even come nearby. iPhone 7 Plus racks up a score of nearly 3500. However, in multicore Geekbench 4 tests, the Galaxy S8 beats the latest iPhones by always scoring under 5800.
This is indeed a huge victory for Samsung. However, it remains to be seen how it will translate as far as real-world performance. So, what do you think about this? Share your views in the comment box below.
