Exynos 8890 SoC produces record AnTuTu benchmark score, topping 100,000

The Exynos 8890, Samsung's next high-powered chipset, set a new record score on the AnTuTu benchmark site. The tally of 103,692 easily topped the 79,000 recently scored by the Kirin 950 SoC, Huawei's new top-of-the-line chip (a more recent run through of the Mate 8 produced a score above 94K). We expect to see the Exynos 8890 used in the Samsung Galaxy S7 and other high-end Galaxy handsets turned out by the manufacturer next-year. The test was conducted with the chip powering the SM-G9300, which is believed to be the Samsung Galaxy S7.

Back in September, the Exynos 8890 rewrote the record books at Geekbench. The chip scored an all-time high of 6908 on the multi-core segment of the test. On the single-core test, the Exynos 8890 produced a 2294 score.  The chip is produced by Samsung using the 14nm FinFET process. According to earlier reports, Samsung will be employing the Snapdragon 820 for U.S. and Chinese variants of the Galaxy S7. The rest of the world will get the version with the Exynos 8890 under the hood.

We could see the Galaxy S7 arrive with a flat-screened 5.2-inch model, and a unit sporting a 5.7-inch curved screen. Despite talk of an earlier than expected unveiling, the new flagship might be introduced to the public on February 21st. That will be the day before the MWC show begins in Barcelona. The Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung Galaxy S6 were both unveiled the day before the MWC show in 2014 and 2015, respectively. In addition, the Samsung Unpacked 2016 event will take place on February 21st. Historically, the latest Galaxy flagship has been announced during one of these events.

If that's all the Exynos 8890 can do than Qualcomm has the edge over Samsung. Exynos 8890 barely pulls in 100k. The Snapdragon 820 pulls in a whopping 133k. Exynos is an octacore SOC and the Snapdragon 820 is a quad. Benchmarks don't mean everything. Even if the final Exynos 8890 is similar to the Snapdragon 820 I wonder which one halts better battery life. Since the Galaxy S7 will have a variant of the Exynos and the SD820 we'll get to see which one performs better with battery. If I were to purchase a Galaxy S7 I'd have to pick the Qualcomm one for one reason alone. It's an open platform compared to Samsung's Exynos closed platform; meaning AOSP ROM's for the snapdragon. I wouldn't purchase a phone that didn't have on screen buttons. I'll never purchase a phone that doesn't have them. So the only way I'll ever purchase another Samsung device is if they collaborate with Google and make another Nexus.

I hope the new Samsung devices have a Micro SD card slot, If not i don't care too much about the ATUNTU benchmarks, The LG V10 is a power house and it has the stuff that i want the most.

this is good, but i really don't care. nearly every single high-end phone performs phenomenally. Why should I care if one scores 90K and another 100K when the user experience is indistinguishable?

My note 5 scores more than most phones that are sold on the planet right now and it still lags and app crashes more than my gf moto x 2013. It seriously means s**t. All I care is a good gpu and best optimized OS/skin. The score above means nothing and nothing at all in real world.

You must see much actual trolling if you call that trolling...

That's actually pretty hardcore trolling considering I was sold on the Moto X 2013 until I handled it and it lagged and stuttered like a bitch. The opposite was true of the Note 5, it was just about my first phablet because it was blazing fast and smooth and I hate phablets, although the Nexus 6p I have is warming me up to phablets now.

People can be wrong and not be a troll. It's been known to happen on the internet every once and a while. Bobbybuster is a troll. Repeats the OBVIOUSLY inflammatory things over and over. I'd turn the sensitivity on your troll radars down if you guys can't tell the difference.

4k for my work for VR but it would be great to choose the resolution that I like, for VR 4k and 2k would be perfect for daily use is ideal.

4k for VR, and FHD native resolution for daily task like Z5 Premium will be good :-/

Sooo looking forward to it bro. I expect a 128 gig model, and for the IR blaster to be brought back.

Iphone arena, took you like 24 hours to eat your tears and write about this. The news are like 2 days old. And whats the story with this scam add that just pops up and tells you that you won an iphone 6s bla bla bla?

is that antutu 5 or 6 .... if gs7 get over 100K IN ANTUTU 6.0 then its not really impressive ps: iphone 6s get 123K in antutu 6

but this benchmark is AnTuTu 5.7.1 not 6.0

If This Is True True Then I Was 100% Right When I Predicted The E8890 Would Score Over 100,000 And Set A New Record. Why Is the Graphics Score The Same As The S6, Does The S7 Have A 4K Display?

20. zeeBomb

Posts: 2318; Member since: Aug 14, 2014

Regular S7 will have dual edges QHD. And the second one will most likely have 4k!

zeeBomb!! does 4K resolution on a smartphone make sense?

30. zeeBomb

Posts: 2318; Member since: Aug 14, 2014

Hexa-core!!! It makes sense for better VR experience and I guess multimedia. Other than that... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

48. Taters

Makes perfect sense, it keeps technology moving forward. That's enough of a reason alone. All we truly need as humans is food , water, shelter, and maybe clothes. Everything else is technically overkill if you want to go down to brass tacks. Just take the 4k at the expense of Samsung and Sony, because we all know they will charge 4K prices for Fhd anyways, like Apple charges 750k prices for 750p. Just take it and enjoy how the Exynos flexes its 4k pixel pushing muscles.

Nice words you picked there LOL. Samsung will have the greatest screen onba mobile phone ever when it debuts UHD AMOLED. Just thinking of that makes me too excited!

Like Taters says: iTurds are still on 720P screen, getting ripped by Apple.

I Don't Think It Does But What The Hell, Give Me The Best Specs Possible And I'll Take It Happily.

4K pretty much overkill, FHD is still enough for me. But it may be less than 100k,because its on Antutu 6.0,where even my old S800 scored 50k,on 5.7.1 i scored 43 000 and throttled G Flex 2 about 70k compared to 55k on 5.7.1
