Canadian Galaxy S7 with Exynos spars against AT&T Galaxy S7 with Snapdragon on Geekbench

Canadian Galaxy S7 with Exynos 8890 beats the AT&T Galaxy S7 with Snapdragon 820 on Geekbench
The Canadian version of the Galaxy S7 for Bell Mobility - SM-G930W8 - has popped up in the Geekbench database carrying an octa-core Exynos 8890 chipset, allowing us to compare it directly with the Snapdragon 820-ladden model for AT&T, coded as SM-G930A. As you can see, the Exynos variant outscores the Snapdragon one in the multicore test and gives way in the single-core one, for identical core clock frequencies. 

This doesn't come as a big surprise, given other benchmark leaks of the two Galaxy S7 chipsets, and the difference has consistently been about 20% in favor of the Exynos 8 Octa chip by Samsung, yet it is nice to see two versions that are headed for the North American market being compared directly.

The other info that can be gleaned from the benchmark tally is that the phones will ship with 4 GB of RAM, and Android 6.0.1 out of the box, as can be expected, and we are also providing a table with all known carrier models of the S7 for reference who is battling who in the benchmark table. In real-world usage, though, the two chipsets are likely to prove so powerful that these synthetic score differential probably wouldn't matter much in your day-to-day interaction with the Galaxy S7 or the S7 Edge, which is expected to sport the same silicon, what do you think?
