Galaxy S7 Snapdragon 820 and Exynos 8890 Chips Compared

Rumours are flying about the Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphones and word is that the chips inside the S7 smartphones will be split between an Exynos 8890 and a Snapdragon 820. The question in the enthusiasts mind is which of the smartphones will perform better. Recently the Galaxy S7 packing the Exynos 8890 passed through GeekBench 3.

A version of the smartphone using the Snapdragon 820 passed through the same benchmarking applications previously allowing direct comparison of the devices. The GeekBench 3 benchmark shows that the Exynos 8890 version of the S7 is the much better performing device.

In GeekBench 3, the Exynos 8890 version scored 5946 while the Snapdragon 820 version put up a score of 4979 in multicore testing. In this benchmark a Galaxy S6 using the Exynos 7420 scored better than the S7 with the Snapdragon 820.

The results are different in single core testing with the Snapdragon 820 positing up 2,282 and the 8890 posting 1,873. With the software for the S7 not finalized, the performance in benchmarks could change before launch. That launch is expected to happen on March 11. We learned this week that Samsung might have an upgrade program for fans to take advantage of when the Galaxy S7 launches.
