According to sources, Samsung’s Exynos 1000 will be reported more powerful than Snapdragon 875, Moreover, the Exynos chipset might outperform Snapdragon 875 in various departments.
Well, Samsung and Qualcomm, both are into chipset making. In fact, Samsung releases two variants of its flagships, i.e. one is the Snapdragon variant and the other one is the Exynos variant.
Besides, we have seen on multiple occasions that the Exynos SoCs are just not able to come at par with Snapdragon’s performance.
This has been pointed out by many techno-heads and has made the people aware of this difference. This is quite a sad thing because Samsung is selling an underpowered device without lowering the price.
And if you happen to be unlucky, then you are getting the Exynos powered phone which delivers lower performance. While others, for the same price are getting the Snapdragon variant.
However, for 2021, both the companies will be eyeing a similar strategy this time, for the release of their flagships chipsets.
Samsung and Qualcomm will be making use of the brand new Cortex-X1 for extreme performance. But the next question arises is that which one of the two will make a powerful chipset.
Samsung Galaxy S21 (S30) will come with Exynos 1000 and Snapdragon 875 chipset
It is only until February 2021, when Samsung will release its next flagship, the Galaxy S21 (S30). And it will come in two variants, i.e. Exynos and Snapdragon variant.
But the latest reports suggest that Exynos 1000 will beat up Snapdragon 875 in terms of performance. This piece of information comes from a Korean forum where the Geekbench scores were published.
If we go by the reports, two Galaxy S21 phones were tested. One was equipped with Exynos 1000 and the other housed the Snapdragon 875 SoC.
Interestingly, a Xiaomi Mi 11 with Snapdragon 875 was also thrown into the mix to cheer up the test. One thing to note is that there are no screenshots shared. So, take this piece of information with a pinch of salt.
Coming back to the test, as per the forum, he single and multi-core scores of the Exynos 1000-powered Galaxy S21 got 1302 points and 4250, respectively.
On the other hand, the Galaxy S21 Snapdragon 875 model got 1159 and 4090, respectively. Moreover, the Xiaomi Mi 11 gathered 1102 and 4113 points, for single and multicores, respectively.
One of the sources adds that Samsung clocked the ARM Cortex-X1 higher
Digging in deep in the source, it reveals that since there was an issue with the ARM Cortex-X1, Samsung overclocked it. Which ultimately left Snapdragon 875 behind.
Apparently, this also confirms one thing that both the SoCs will make use of the Cortex-X1. Another thing to note is that the units involved in the test are early pre-production samples.
So, the performance difference will be a bit early to celebrate. And there is no confirmation regarding this from any official source. So, we will have to wait for the actual performance results.
