Canadian Galaxy S7 with Exynos spars against AT&T Galaxy S7 with Snapdragon on Geekbench47
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.
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.This doesn't come as a big surprise, given
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?
