Samsung’s Exynos 1000 Could be Faster than Snapdragon 875

If rumours are to be believed the upcoming Exynos 1000 could actually prove to be faster than its biggest competitor. While the first Exynos 1000-powered Samsung phones are yet to arrive until February next year, but I will be exciting to finally see some great competition in the processor department. 

The information came from a Korean forum where various Geekbench scores were published. Reportedly two Samsung Galaxy S21 units were tested – one with Exynos 1000 and one with Snapdragon 875. In addition, there’s a Xiaomi Mi 11 phone with Snapdragon 875 thrown into the mix as well.

While no screenshots have been shared, so it is best to take this information with a pinch of salt. But the single and multi-core scores of the Exynos 1000-powered Samsung are both higher than its Snapdragon 875 counterpart. In the single-core test, the Exynos 1000 got 1302 points and 4250 in multi whereas the Snapdragon 875 got 1159 and 4090, respectively. The Mi 11 isn’t too far off either with 1102 and 4113 points.

The source also adds that there’s still an issue with ARM’s newly announced Cortex-X1 core so Samsung has decided to clock it higher leaving the Snapdragon 875 behind. This could be a confirmation that both chipsets will make use of the Cortex-X1.

All the handsets involved in the testing are early pre-production samples so the performance of both SoCs will likely go higher upon release. However, this is probably the first time that the Exynos is coming on top. Plus, both chips will be based on Samsung’s 5nm process and will share similar architecture. How excited are you for this release?
