Exynos 8890 SoC produces record AnTuTu benchmark score, topping 100,000

The Exynos 8890 SoC smashes through the six-figure ceiling at AnTuTu

The Exynos 8890, Samsung's next high-powered chipset, set a new record score on the AnTuTu benchmark site. The tally of 103,692 easily topped the 79,000 recently scored by the Kirin 950 SoC, Huawei's new top-of-the-line chip (a more recent run through of the Mate 8 produced a score above 94K). We expect to see the Exynos 8890 used in the Samsung Galaxy S7 and other high-end Galaxy handsets turned out by the manufacturer next-year. The test was conducted with the chip powering the SM-G9300, which is believed to be the Samsung Galaxy S7.

Back in September, the Exynos 8890 rewrote the record books at Geekbench. The chip scored an all-time high of 6908 on the multi-core segment of the test. On the single-core test, the Exynos 8890 produced a 2294 score.  The chip is produced by Samsung using the 14nm FinFET process. According to earlier reports, Samsung will be employing the Snapdragon 820 for U.S. and Chinese variants of the Galaxy S7. The rest of the world will get the version with the Exynos 8890 under the hood.

We could see the Galaxy S7 arrive with a flat-screened 5.2-inch model, and a unit sporting a 5.7-inch curved screen. Despite talk of an earlier than expected unveiling, the new flagship might be introduced to the public on February 21st. That will be the day before the MWC show begins in Barcelona. The Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung Galaxy S6 were both unveiled the day before the MWC show in 2014 and 2015, respectively. In addition, the Samsung Unpacked 2016 event will take place on February 21st. Historically, the latest Galaxy flagship has been announced during one of these events.

Does Antutu look like that in screenshot? It looks like an MIUI app.

you are right,another thing is the galaxy s7 only gets 22k in 3d ,the galaxy s6 get 22k too, the mali t880 mp12 is 2.25x more powerful than mali t760 mp8,the only explications is that the galaxy s7 maybe has a 4k UHD screen

The one thing I do not get, it was reported the China SM-G9300, was report to use the sd820

Lol. Called it somewhere in a discussion the Exynos will break 100k. Guess what?
103,692 Baby!

But alas, antutu is only part of the story. Not as reliable to some as well. Cinebench and Gfxbench will tell the tale of the 8890's prowess.

Gotta see the real deal, but won't surprise me. The mate 8 scored 94k in the latest test (which phonearena didn't mention.)

Scores seem to be inflated in antutu 6, I just got 50656 on my S5. This is a device that used to get ~38000.

Wow, in that case, it's not all that impressive then. A mote powerful GPU in the Mate would've given a score closed to or matching that of the Galaxy S7. Let's see what the SD820 gives once completed. I have a feeling that it'll be very close to if not exceed the Exynos 8 in synthetics and features, seeing as how Samsung isn't abandoning using it...

Well, Huawei uses a quite similar CPU set compared to Exynos 8890. Also Huawei uses FHD while Samsung goes with 4K what reduces the graphics score difference to minimum.

@alex3run Huawei hass much worse GPU than 8890, Kirin has 4-core Mali-T880MP4 while Exynos has 12-core Mali-T880MP12. Display resolution does't change Antutu scores because it knows that GPU has to work harder.

Higher resolution does affect Antutu score!!! Atutu just does the benchmark, and knows nothing else.

The resolution does affect the scores but not linearly.

They mentioned it in this article, right under the first score

Andrei from AnandTech says that this a benchmark called Ludashi or Master Lu
Never heard of it myself

It seems like this is their website here

I want to see how QC does with the 820. Adreno 530 vs Mail-T880.

Adreno alwaya rules in the GPU battles.

Did you check the 810 vs 7420 in GPU off screen tests?
Adreno doesn't always rule.

I agree. But for some reason everything thinks the Mali always beats it out...

I wouldn't call this one until we see what the 820 can do with its custom cores. Qualcomm clearly had a problem using stock ARM cores in the 810, but their custom cores ruled supreme in the past.

820's already in a steaming hot pile of mess. Qualcomm, once an industry leader, is a clear 2nd now.. Its what happens when you try to beat your competition without experience. Samsung went through a year of pain with the early Exynos - but look where they are now :)

And how do you know that about the 820 then?
