Exynos 5433 Outperforms Snapdragon 805, Could be At the Heart of the Galaxy Note 4

We all know that Samsung is working on another Galaxy Note device, to be launched later this year, more than likely during the IFA conference held in Berlin every Fall, but we don’t know all too much about it. One piece of information that does keep coming up time and time again however is the mention of Samsung’s Exynos 5433, their latest octa-core CPU. It’s said that the Galaxy Note 4 is to be powered by this next-generation Exynos CPU and if these latest AnTuTu results are to be believed, for once it’s the Exynos version you’ll want to get your hands on.

A benchmark for the Exynos 5433 has surfaced in AnTuTu sporting a score above 40,000 points, which is not only impressive in its own right, but it also puts the processor above the Snapdragon 805 which is listed with a score around the 37,000. Benchmarks aren’t everything of course, but these results are certainly something to take notice of, especially as the Snapdragon 800 series has traditionally outperformed the Exynos line of octa-core CPUs. The 5433 has been referred to as the “HelsinkiPro”, with the 5430 that came before it known as the “Helsinki”, so it’s clear that Samsung pulled out a lot of the stops on this one.

Interestingly enough, while the 5433 is built using a pair of Cortex A53 and Cortex A57 quad-core CPUs, there are no ARMv8 instructions listed in AnTuTu, which makes this 64-bit chip a 32-bit chip according to AnTuTu. With the latest version of Android looking set to include 64-bit instructions, when the Galaxy Note 4 launches, if it does in fact include the Exynos 5433, then it could be even faster than these results are showing. Hopefully, this Exynos CPU will include the needed support for LTE networks here in the West and that any lag issues found with previous models are no longer an issue when the Galaxy Note 4. No matter whether or not the Galaxy Note 4 features this or a Snapdragon 805 though, we’re sure it’ll be a beast of a guitar.
