It is known that the South Korean company Samsung uses its own chipsets in its smartphones, in addition to Qualcomm chipsets.
However, its Exynos chipsets have been criticized in recent years for poorer performance than competing Qualcomm. However, according to the GSMArena, this should change with the upcoming Samsung Exynos 1000 chipset.
Exynos 1000 defeated Snapdragon 875 in the Geekbench benchmark
The results of two Samsung Galaxy S21 devices in the Geekbench benchmark appeared on the South Korean forum this week.
One of them was to use the Samsung Exynos 1000 chipset and the other the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875. At the same time, the competing Xiaomi Mi 11 smartphone with the Snapdragon 875 was unveiled in the benchmark.
The Galaxy S21 with the Exynos 1000 chipset scored 1302 points in the single-core test and 4250 points in the multi-core test. In the case of the same smartphone with Snapdragon 875, it was 1159 points and 4090 points, respectively.
For the Xiaomi Mi 11, the result was 1102 points in the single-core test and 4113 points in the multi-core test. This should confirm that the Exynos 1000 will offer slightly more performance than the competing Snapdragon 875.
New core and production process
No benchmark screenshots were provided for the results. Given that the Xiaomi Mi 11 model, like the mentioned chipsets, is not to appear on the market until next year, it is questionable whether to trust the result.
But if they are true, they will certainly please especially European Samsung fans. In Europe, the South Korean giant distributes its flagships with its own Exynos chipsets.
This year, however, there has been criticism of the Exynos 990 chipset, as it is significantly less powerful than the Snapdragon 865 used by Samsung’s flagships in the South Korean and American markets.
However, the upcoming Exynos 1000 and Snapdragon 875 chipsets should use the same new Cortex-X1 processor cores and should be manufactured using the same 5nm manufacturing process. The difference in performance should be significantly smaller.
