Snapdragon 820-equipped Samsung Galaxy S7 flexes its muscle in leaked AnTuTu benchmark result

A few weeks ago, mobile benchmark developers from AnTuTu promised that they will soon post the score obtained by a Samsung Galaxy S7 prototype. Today, the day has finally come and, as expected, it looks like the heavily anticipated Galaxy S7 is going to be a true powerhouse.

Many already know this by now, but the Samsung Galaxy S7 is expected to come in two versions. The North American version will probably get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 version while the rest of the world is expected to get the Exynos 8890 chipset. Last week, AT&T's Snapdragon 820 version was spotted making the rounds on Geekbench, showcasing great CPU performance.

This time around, a Snapdragon 820-equipped Samsung Galaxy S7 prototype was passed through AnTuTu, a benchmark that tests both the CPU and the GPU performance. The handset got a score of 125,288 points, which is well above the scores obtained by current-gen Android flagships. For reference, the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ averages out at about 82,000 points in the latest version of AnTuTu.

The Apple A9-powered iPhone 6S Plus, which is currently the best-performing smartphone in AnTuTu, gets an average score of about 132,000 points. However, we do have to bear in mind that the iPhone 6S Plus runs a resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels while the Samsung Galaxy S7 will most likely use a resolution of 1440 by 2560 pixels. Since 3D performance is a big component of the overall score, it's impressive that the Snapdragon 820 is nearly able to match the score of the iPhone 6S Plus in AnTuTu given that the GPU has to push about 77% more pixels.

As is always the case with benchmarks on prototype devices, it remains to be seen if the commercial version of the Samsung Galaxy S7 will be able to maintain this performance levels. As such, make sure not to read too much into these results. For much more details on what to expect from the upcoming Samsung flagship, make sure to read our Galaxy S7 rumor roundup.

Won't matter much. Either processor's performance on AnTuTu isn't indicative of real world blues. What I would like to see is the final single-core benchmark score on Geekbench for both these bad boys.

Well, it's proven geekbench and Antutu are heavily Apple skewed. Like the article says: e.g. resolution doesn't matter in the score even though it's obvious the 820 is far superior graphics wise to Apple's crap.

I would like to have sd820 version bcoz qualcomm has very wide developers support + wide network support. On exynos, once samsung stop updates then you are stuck with older version of android. Qualcomm has many custom ROMs

The resolution dependence really spoils the comparison between SoCs. You can't compare 2 SoCs running on different resolutions.

If Qualcomm can sort out the heat issues on their chipsets I have a feeling the SD820 will be better overall compared to Sammy's offering.

It is Samsung which is producing the SD820 for Qualcomm... so, no more heating issues.

Don't think because Exynos has more cores and a bit better GPU.

resolution won't differ the score that significant.
just look at iPhone 6S and 6S Plus scores.
even on the global list 6S and Plus stated on the same score.

Just imagine a SD 820 and Exynos 8890 on a FHD phone. That would be amazing since most games actually runs 1080p or has it been fixed for QHD. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Here is the Antutu test for the S7 with Exynos 8890 SOC:

Seems Antutu will soon fix this issue to handle the powerhouse's extreme performance.

Some ppl need to stop been ass here.

Sure on the latest gen the SD810 was slower but just before thats the 805 killed the exynos in GPU quite easily.

Both note 4 one with SD one with exynos here the link :http://cdn.wccftech.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/GFX-Bench-3.0.jpg

5433 came way after the 805.

Its was the 5430 thats was used in most international note 4 the 5433 came out mostly in korea and way after both the snapdragon 805 and exynos 5430 came out.

Compare soc from same time.

you are totally wrong. 5433 and sd805 were used at the same time in note 4. It was qcomm's fault they were unable to offer any soc at the time of 5433

Marorun, Exynos 5433 is indeed a bit faster than SD805.

Wrong? all you showing me are SD810 and newer exynos version link.

You told me Exynos always beat Snapdragon in GPU right? why not prove it and stop been an ass? We all know SD810 was not as good as its should the point is you said exynos beat snapdragon all the time but i shown you several video who say otherwise.

28. johanbiff (Posts: 400; Member since: 31 Mar 2015)


you where the one to bring up the soc (SD810) I was talking about the Mali VS Adreno..you know.. GPU?! don`t say SD810 when you mean Adreno then maybe I will understand :)

31. marorun (Posts: 3580; Member since: 30 Mar 2015)


All the link i gave have benchmark on it comparing soc from same time.

In each of them the exynos was beaten in GPU departement beside the one with the SD810. Qualcomm failed because they used stock arm core thats was a bad move.

But other than this and the sd801 in all soc thats came out same time the GPU in SD was superior. its also support more API.

Stop acting dumb.

serously? it`s like talking to a F-ing wall!

all the info is there just read FFS.

the same time? u need to compare phones which they sit in..I can take a Mali GPU from 2013 and put it in a big as tablet with subzero cooling and wynd up the Mhz to 3000 and kill you new adreno GPU... seems fair? no, excactly.. same phone with diffrent soc/GPU`s is the only way! why else would they put those paticulare soc in the same phone? im sorry but your way over your head

Its time to just close down your cell phone shop because you seem highly misinformed in this area and it isnt fair for you to give bad advice out to people spending $hundreds of dollars on products. You are most probably recommending people to pick a M9 over a S6 or note 5 just because of your clear bias and hate for exynos/anything samsung.

We been through this 100 times already, Exynos >> Snapdragon in 2015. In pretty much every single way

Just to make it clear i also compared SD 800 to Exynos offering of the time..

Qualcomm SD can do up to twice the speed on some GPU benchmark :http://www.extremetech.com/mobile/159152-qualcomm​-snapdragon-800-benchmarked-beats-exynos-5-octa-an​d-a6x

Your benchmarks are trash.

And your overrated Adreno 330 almost gets beaten by PowerVR SGX544.

Again Qualcomm's paid benchmarks mislead a lot of people.

The only time beside SD810 Exynos beat Qualcomm was on the 5422 vs the SD 801 and its was small margin ( 1-3% max ) faster.

Wrong, I'll list all the Samsung devices with Exynos SoC's that were faster than there Snapdragon counterparts for 3d performance.

Galaxy S
Galaxy S II
Galaxy S3
Galaxy Note 4
(Galaxy S6)

I'm missing out a few devices as they share the same SoC,

Can you please shut up now, please?

Snapdragon 600 was a little faster then Exynos 5410 for gaming, not a huge difference though.

http://wccftech.com/galaxy-note-4-snapdragon-vs-exynos/

Snapdragon 800 was a little quicker than Exynos 5433, again not a huge amount but in some situations it was a lot so.

http://www.techspot.com/review/839-galaxy-s5-exynos-vs-snapdragon/

Examples I gave are when there is a clear advantage so Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S5 doesn't really feature.

Most of the time this is true.

Exynos 5422 was not as good as Snapdragon 800, quite a big difference in 3D performance, also was used in the Note tablet's and the lack of performance in 3D games was noticable, the 3D performance was pathetic.

Exynos 5433 was good in the Note 4 but should never have been used in the tablets long after the Exynos 7420 was made available, Samsung using up surplus stock again and hoping nobody will care.

The performance of SD801 under WQHD wasn't good either.

72. JumpinJackROMFlash (Posts: 450; Member since: 10 Dec 2014)


Nope, it's because Exynos doesn't support all the US bands, so only the US-centric, non-standard versions will be SD. The rest of the world understands it's a good thing if you can use your phone internationally or while traveling.
