Samsung Galaxy S21 based on Exynos 1000 tested in the benchmark
The presentation of the new Samsung flagships is expected only in February next year, but the first results of the future smartphone in the Geekbench benchmark have already appeared on the web. However, the data obtained raises a number of questions about the device's performance.
The screenshot above shows the results of testing an unknown Samsung smartphone with the model number SM-G996B. It is assumed that this is a representative of the new flagship line. The device runs Android 11, which is quite expected for a new gadget. The hardware platform specified is an eight-core Exynos processor (presumably Exynos 1000), paired with 8 GB of RAM.
In single-core mode, the smartphone scored 1038 points, and in multi-core - 3060. These results are comparable to those of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G based on the Snapdragon 865+ processor (960/3050), with a slight advantage only in single-core mode. But in comparison with the Galaxy Note 20 based on Exynos 990 (885/2580), the difference is more noticeable.
Interestingly, Apple's new 5nm A14 Bionic processor also doesn't show much of a performance jump over its predecessor. Perhaps, with the transition to a new technical process, companies focused primarily on energy efficiency.
