Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy S21 Series lineup in mid-January, and as usual, these phones will arrive with the Snapdagon 875 or Exynos 2100 processor, depending on the market. The Snapdragon 875 processor version has now appeared on the Geekbench benchmark, where it scored 3319 points in the multi-core test, but according to the leakers, this is not considered enough because the Exynos 2100 processor will be able to reach 4000 points in the same test.
Over the past few years, the Snapdragon versions of the Galaxy S Series phones available in China, South Korea and the United States have been better in terms of performance, causing some frustration for some users of global versions that use Exynos processors.
However, according to the prominent Chinese Ice Universe, it will be different this time with the Exynos 2100 processor surpassing the Snapdragon 875 processor in all areas. Both processors will contain the high-performance Cortex-X1 core core, which will reach a frequency of 2.91GHz in the Exynos 2100 processor, while its frequency will remain in the range of 2.84GHz in the Snapdragon 875 processor. The difference in the frequency level will also affect the three Cortex-A78 cores, which will reach a frequency of 2.81GHz In Samsung processor and around 2.42GHz in Qualcomm processor.
As for the remaining Cortex-A55 cores, it will have a frequency of 1.8GHz in the Snapdragon 875 processor, while it will reach a frequency of 2.21GHz in the Exynos 2100 processor. The aforementioned leak says that this will help push the result of the Samsung processor in testing multiple cores to more than 4000 points .
Of course, this is only one part of the processor, there is also the graphics processor that hasn’t been mentioned yet along with features like video encoding and decoding capabilities. Most importantly, we have yet to see how these processors perform in real life as poor heat management can easily overshadow performance. We’ll know for sure in two months from now.
