Galaxy S6 Edge pops up on GeekBench with higher record, confirming Exynos 7420 and Android 5.0.2
A Galaxy S6 Edge model (SM-G925F) rеsurfaced on GeekBench with even higher record multicore scores, indicating that as we are getting closer to launch and the software gets more polished, the retail units might just as well decimate everything in their way, even the iPad Air 2, for the foreseeable future. Needless to say, this is all due to the octa-core Exynos 7420 chipset that manages to crush it with 1,495 points in the single-core, and the breathtaking 5,375 points in the multi-core test, putting the new Samsung flagship at the top of the mobile game.

Furthermore, with TouchWiz eventually streamlined and rewritten from scratch with 64-bit processing in mind, we just might witness a software revolution in Samsung's bread-and-butter Galaxy S line, too. The GeekBench entry confirms with certainty that we will see the new 14nm Exynos on board, coupled with 3 GB of DDR4 RAM, and, excitingly enough, the very latest Android 5.0.2 will be making a splash with Samsung's new flagship liner, too.

Exynos 7420 even with quad hd is better than snapdragon 810

No it's not. Geekbench test the cores only, not the whole chipset/SoC. Overall performance is about the same in both 7420 and 810.

Are you sure? I'm not. It's pretty obvious that Exynos 7420 has a slight CPU advantage but we haven't seen the GPU part of it. If it is Mali T760MP8 then Snapdragon 810 may be slower in graphics too (and din't forget that Mali has better optimizationin most games).

Also memory clocks and ISP of Exynos 7420 is unknown by now, that's why we should wait for the announcement.

How do you know this? Did you test the 7420? Has anyone else tested the 7420 in overall performance? Has there been a comparison of these two SoC?

Yeah there was an antutu comparison last week on this siteexyno7420 had better graphics Than the 810

False, it tests the CPU cores, GPU and memory speed.

Nope.
This is a result from a slim, small phone, while SD 810 results are from a reference tablet, thus thermally unrestricted.

Wait till you see Snapdragon scores from an off the shelf phones. They won't be anywhere near these.

That was with a reference device that was the size of a tablet.

Those scores will not be reflective of consumer products.

gsmarena did benchmarks on an actual consumer device that uses the 810 (LG G Flex 2) and its antutu scores are LOWER than the Galaxy Note 4.

the only disadvatage of exynos 7420 over the SD 810 is that we cant really use the mobile as a heating pan :P

With power hungry Cortex A57 r1p0 be shure you can.

Not with 14 nm

TDP will be 5W not 7W but that's more than enough to turn a mobile into an iron. Off course in daily tasks Exynos 7420 won't overheat (like 5433 doesn't) but if you try to load the CPU by 100% you'll see overheating.

The system power control will lower down the clock a little bit. At 1.7 GHz and 14 nm, the TDP will be well below 3W. However at 2.1 GHz it will go 5W but that's more like the performance for burst.

what are the numbers to compare with? From e.g. SD810 or air 2, eventhough thats a tabletprocessor?

5. tedkord (Posts: 11687; Member since: 17 Jun 2009)


The iPad Air 2 scores 1808 single, 4532 multi.
I don't have the SD810 scores.

The G Flex 2 scores 1200 single, 3400 multi
The Exynos Note 4 scores 1200 single, 4000 multi
The Nexus 9 scores 1900 single, 3300 multi
The iPhone 6 scores 1600 single, 2900 multi

I'd except the Nvida X1 to score similar to the 810 and 5433 because same 20nm A57 cores
Probably more like the 5433 since there's more room for cooling in a tablet

For the A9/A9X I'd except increases of at least 20% due to moving to 14nm
Probably increases anyway between 20-50%
Depends if they reuse Cyclone or introduce new cores

I want to see a tablet only Exynos chip, like how the A9X and X1 will be tablet only

Wow.

Take it as a grain of salt, but if Samsung manage to make a more smooth Touch wiz experience alongside the Microsoft productivity apps.. We might be in for a win to win situation with this hardware.

The S6 could start pushing the train on the 64 Bit game that Apple started with the 5s.

Im really curious about the S6 and if it's actually gonna make a nice impact on the market like the early entries in the Galaxy line.

sorry mate but there is no need to as the 810 as gone up with the 5433 and not done to good in the flex 2, its clear the 7420 is going to kill it doa, if there was any problem they just keep using the 7410 (64 bit ver of 5433), i.e. if the 5433 was running on the note4 in 64 bit mode, it will be easy killed the flex2 in tests that and that uses qhd

G Flex 2 has pre-production batch of 810's, mass production of the updated 810 will start in mid-March.

So that covers G4 only and htc is doa then,oh dear, on a small note all that's goig. To do is fix the 2nd benchmark problmes, the 1st scores not going to go up big time, I.e. The 810 is 100% doa, the only thing that going to get better is the lag and throttling of the flex lag2 when it comes to the G4 and that it, it's only up to 5433 and that it, if I was htc I be phoning up Samsung asap and asking them for a 7410/5433 asap or they out of business, Samsung can make them a 7411 with ddr4 support

Both were tested in Antutu with QHD displays and oerall score was pretty much identical. 7420 has faster cores and that's it.

I'm happy with my Note 4, so not going to make the jump to the S6, but If I would have to choose phone, I would choose on with the Snapdragon, purely because of custom rom's. These give your phone a second life after a few years. HTC might benefit from this.

ther will be no custom roms for the 810, over the 7420 anyways due to they be all makign them for the s6, in the past most like not4 was on sd and not samsung cpu so they all go for the sd905 over the 5433, not this time

So am I as well with my Note 4, but if the S6 does well, I will consider getting the Note 5 because to me, the Note is basically the "+" of the S line.

I don't think you people here realize the magnitude of this score and what it means on the great scheme of things.

This is greater raw CPU performance than the latest INTEL CORE M chips that cost over $150 a piece and have 2.5 times TDP.

Heck, it is about as powerful as the CURRENT MacBook Air chip.
These are game changing times we are witnessing.

32. vipervoid123 (Posts: 163; Member since: 27 Aug 2013)


Nope the raw CPU performance still at least 1.8x times of its performance.
And u better dont forget u comparing a octo-core processor to a dual core processor.
intel Core M single core score at 2.5k.

34. livyatan (Posts: 867; Member since: 19 Jun 2013)


Yes, I'm comparing a 8 core chip with 8 cores that are smaller put together than those two Core CPU's from Intel.

You could put about 6 A53 cores in the die space of ONE Core M core., and about 2 A57's inside one Core.

People still bring up number of cores like it means something.
What means something is the entire SoC, and the entire Exynos 7420 is smaller and far less power hungry than entire Core M chip.

Yes, single threaded performance is lower, but that's why I said RAW OVERALL performance that the score from the title directly is about.

Also, only the high end $270 Core M50Y scores 2500 on single core Geekbench.
The entry level versions are bellow 2000, and they still cost many times more than Exynos, suck twice the power and probably have a weaker GPU as well.

This cpu is what snapdragon will have in 6 to 12 months time, samsung is goig. To crap all over them, that and the scores are in a very thin phone, thinner than an iPhone 6, think of the power if they was able to over clock in ther new tab s2, good times

On a small note just if anyone is looking at the single score and thinking apples got that I the bag as it only as 2 or 3 core in it the score of Apple a8 and even the a8x is crap, but iOS only likes 2 cores so it's very good for them, if this cpu went into the s6 the benchmarks will be very bad

And here comes lg/htc excuses when it comes to exynos beating snapdragon. not to mention jealous cheap heads from china. you guys can go to h*ll. samsung chose exynos to beat the s810 not trail behind and numbers dont lie. now wait till I hold the beast in my hands while you all can enjoy your wannabe phone ( did you know that: china phones have a dedicated farrt button ).
