Last week Samsung made its new line of flagship smartphones official, with the arrival of the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 Plus and Galaxy S21 Ultra trio. While Brazil – and much of the world – receives versions of the three devices equipped with the Exynos 2100, the new top-of-the-line processor from the South Korean company, some markets, such as the United States, for example, will receive their own edition, with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888.
Samsung, when announcing its new processor, pointed out that it will gain up to 40% more performance compared to the Exynos 990, its predecessor. With that, the question arises: what is the performance of the chipset compared to the rival of this generation, the Snapdragon 888? The Beebom channel on YouTube posted a video with the first impressions of the Galaxy S21 Ultra and released the results of Geekbench and Antutu tests for the two processors.
According to figures released by YouTuber, Qualcomm’s processor wins in all Geekbench test scenarios, whether multi or single-core. Check out the results:
Single-Core Score: 1074
Multi-core Score: 3335
Single-Core Score: 1139
Multi-core Score: 3810
In Antutu tests, Samsung’s new processor also lags behind the numbers and the Snapdragon 888 outperforms overall chipset performance. Check out the results:
It is worth mentioning that the two processors are manufactured with a 5 nanometer architecture and come with support for a 5G network connection. However, they differ in their graphics card – Samsung’s chipset has an integrated Mali G-78 MP 14 GPU, while Qualcomm’s has the Adreno 660.
