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.

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

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 :)

68. TyrionLannister (unregistered)


It wasn't a problem with the cores. It's just that A57 at 2 GHz causes too much voltage leak on HKMG. Qualcomm used an older process and paid the price.

This time they won't repeat the same mistake and hence their processors will work amazingly.

If was using 9-12 watts they should've used a higher 4000Mah battery, but they didn't due to cost. How stupid when other Oems are providing battery with 4000Mah at cheaper price than Samsung.

Increasing the battery isn't a viable solution for small phones (5" or below). It makes the phone too thick and heavy. People want pretty and thin phones ( regular people, not us ). Phones take longer to charge too.

Besides, battery drain is not the only issue with heating. The phone heating up has other consequences. It can loosen the glue, shut down apps, crack the glass and feel unpleasant to touch.

Increasing battery size is the most stupid way to address battery life issue. They need to use smarter software with efficient hardware. Also new battery tech is welcome.

Major players will never cram 4000 mAh and make a fugly phone. Get over with it. They care about sales and general public.

I care about the overall battery life, battery size can be 1000 mAh for all I care.

Exynos 5433 had same cores and was manufactured using same process.

But they weren't clocked that high. And there were other differences like power gating vs hotplugging and the CCI interconnects were different.

About manufacturing processes: I tried to find SD808/SD810 GPU voltage tables to compare them to what I have in my Note 4 Exynos but I didn't have a sucsess.

Well that's good. Where does all of the power go? I mean my galaxy nexus hit 8500-9000. It was fast and fluid enough. Do apps really require all of this power? What games are are really utilizing the GPU?

Galaxy Nexus had 720p screen, Samsung Galaxy S7 will have Quad HD or higher screen resolution that's 4 times more pixells. Besides there's always room for better computational and graphics power unless of course calls and messaging is all you use your phone for.

Dude, what is your problem? the 1440p display on the S6 is more efficient than either of the displays on the latest iPhones and last years iPhones too.

the Galaxy S starts at 599 on VZW. If you csn get a phone that has better battery life vs an iPhone, with better design, is more efficient and cost less; why would you complain.

Let me ask you, do you only buy stuff that makes sense, or do you buy it because you want it?

I got one better. Obviously you only want low spec'd phones so why are you even here reading about this one?

its very simple. Technology moves forward. Samsung at least has found a way to give more for less. Yet you sound like some old fart who hates change.

If you don't want fancier bells and whistles, just go and get an iPhone or whatever phone you like and only read about phones and post about phones that actually interest you.

Pretty sure it has a noticeably slower CPU and a bit worse GPU as usual. Personally for me the situation reminds 2012 competition: Snapdragon S4 Plus vs Exynos 4412.
