Galaxy S6 Edge multi-core Geekbench score crushes everything, including the iPad Air 2
The Galaxy S6 Edge keeps on leaking like a rusty faucet. After its ultra low SAR radiation ratings that popped up on Samsung's website by mistake yesterday, and its user manuals, today the handset, codenamed SM-925, appeared with all of its specs on AnTuTu for the umpteenth time.
Well, if you didn't believe that 60, 000+ score it got on the AnTuTu benchmark, perhaps this next leak will convince you that we might be looking at the most powerful handset on the market when the S6 lands. Its octa-core Exynos 7420 chipset managed to crush it with 1,492 points in the single-core, and 5,077 points in the multi-core test. To put things in perspective, this multi-core result is way higher than any other mobile device at the moment, including the iPad Air 2, the reigning champ, which scores 4,532.
The single-core performance gives way only to the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, or the Google Nexus 9 tablet with its industrial strength Tegra K1 processor, but for phone purposes - well, it is very unlikely that the S6 will meet a task it can't crunch for the foreseeable future with these scores. Let's see if it will be strong enough to power TouchWiz without hiccups, though Samsung is rumored to go with a complete overhaul of the interface part, too.
