First Galaxy S6 edge benchmarks show peak performance in AnTuTu and outrageous memory speeds!
Hello, friends! Are you having fun reading our comparisons of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge against their Android and iOS rivals? We're sure having a blast throwing these scorching hot devices against each other.
But, as the mighty Monty Python loves to say, it's time for something completely different! We got to run some benchmarks on Samsung's latest hardware, the Galaxy S6 edge, and we're ready to report some seriously impressive results!
As you surely know at this point, the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge run on the same hardware platform, so these results should be valid for both devices. However, these are pre-release units we're handling here, so don't take the results as final - but merely as very promising!
The Galaxy S6 edge, which is precisely as powerful as the Galaxy S6, crowned the AnTuTu benchmark with a total score of over 60,000 points! Great job, Samsung!
The AndroBench memory speed test result shows a mind-boggling improvement in read and write speeds over the Galaxy S5! We'll let the numbers speak for themselves. Where last year's flagship scored 24.2MB/s (sequential write_, the Galaxy S6 edge scored 139.08MB/s! Where the Galaxy S5 scored 176.5Mb/s (sequential read), the Galaxy S6 Edge scored 314.87MB/s! And where the Galaxy S5 scored 13.7MB/s (random read), the Galaxy S6 edge scored 77.2MB/s! All that in just a year! We're extremely impressed with what the new UFS 2.0 storage has to show so far.
In GFXBench, the Galaxy S6 edge didn't wow us in the Manhattan test, but a solid 30FPS in the T-Rex test is definitely good news for gamers!
Finally, the GeekBench score shows the Exynos 7420 is capable of very very good single and multi-core performance. The results we obtained actually surpass what the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 has shown in the same test. However, this Galaxy S6 edge in the picture is a pre-release unit, which means this score is not final - but it is, nevertheless, extremely promising!
