Mystery Samsung device scores a breathtaking 95,972 on AnTuTu (UPDATE)

Mystery Samsung device scores a breathtaking 95,972 on AnTuTu (UPDATE)
A mystery Samsung device has just set a new record on the AnTuTu benchmarking site with a score of 95,972. The model number of the unknown device is SM-8508S. Since the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 reportedly scored 69,702 on AnTuTu, we can pretty much eliminate that model. We'd expect a similar or lower score for the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+. That leaves one model in mind, and we think you know which one we are thinking about.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 could be the handset that produced that record shattering AnTuTu score. Yesterday, we told you that the manufacturer's new "Agile" system could allow it to have the next flagship model developed by December. Not that we think Samsung would feel compelled to unveil the new model that early. After all, the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ would still be fairly new and there shouldn't be a need to cannibalize sales of those models during the holiday shopping season.

Whatever is under the hood of the SM-8508S is obviously cranking more horsepower than the Exynos 7420. There has been speculation that Sammy would return to Qualcomm and employ a Snapdragon SoC for the Galaxy S7. Whether this is the Samsung Galaxy S7 or not, it is clearly going to be a powerful device with some serious power under the hood.

Thanks for the tip!

UPDATE: It appears that the AnTuTu score of 95,972 was a fake. While the model number of SM-8508S didn't provide us with a conclusive match, it came close to the Samsung Galaxy Alpha (Southeast Asian model). The latter actually has averaged 38,997 on AnTuTu, pretty far from the faked score.

Someday there will be a device that hits 100,000 on the site. But that day is just not today.

Thanks for the tip!

I'm going with GS7 custom ARM cores. If Qualcomm gets 30-40% performance increase using custom cores in 820. A 70k GS6 + ~30/40% is 95k+

SD 820 being quad core I hardly doubt it. Also it could be ARM 4 x A72 + 4 x A53 and mali T880MP8 (As Antutu measures GPU score as well).

Also compared 7420, most of the improvement is mainly in CPU score 150%, graphics and io improvement are roughly 20%. Multi tasking and RAM scores are almost similar. So we can also hope for a little bump is score with optimizations, Crossing 100K.

Usually we don't see leaked benchmarks until the device is nearly released So unless if the GS7 is releasing soon I doubt its that IMO its probably the Note 5 or proper flagship tablet Probably 14nm LPP (instead of 14nm LPE in the 7420) A57s + A53s with higher clocks and newer GPU (e.g. T860/T880 MP8/MP10) IMO we won't see A72s yet, since there's usually a decent delay after announcement Except MAYBE from MediaTek since they partnered with ARM for development (and a few others) Samsung were making their own custom cores instead

But most of the improvement in score compared to 7420 score is in CPU, using 14 nm LPP expected improvement will be around 20-30%. If you look at this benchmark CPU score multi score is improved by 150% and single core by 30%. GPU is kinda same. May be they used 8 x A57, lol. We saw SD 620 score leaks a while ago, so may be A72 is almost cooked by Qualcomm too.

Oh I didn't realise how big of a jump it was from the 7420 (I dont usually pay much attention to AnTuTu scores) Keep in mind theses are rumors, could be faked But hopefully these are true That the Note 5 does have A72s and A53s And that we see phones with the Snapdragon 620 and A72s as well The Nexus 5 rumor with the 620 sounded great

It's a big jump but in multi core score not that much in single core. May be (feels like mostly) fake scores or no bigLITTLE, all 8 equal cores.

Yea the source is wccftech, they are not reliable IMO

The LG Nexus 2015 is coming with a chip that has A72 cores, the snapdragon 620; the estimated release date is October.

And there's also been rumors that the Nexus 5 will have the 808 We won't known until the actual announcement

SD 620 might be possible, sadly it doesn't have anything special beside A72. GPU would be lower, no ddr4 ram.

60. vincelongman

IMO the GPU and LPDDR3 would be easily enough for 1080p and no lag Assuming the Nexus 5 is still ~$350, I reckon it would be a good deal

Quallcom Slowdragon scoring this. Lmfao. Yea really. "Behold the Exynos" .

Qualcomm did well for a long time, SOC from qualcomm did well than exynos SOC released in same time frame. Exynos did well when it came out with 5430 and 5433, because it adopted th newer manufacturing process 20nm earlier than Qualcomm and in case of 5433 new cores too. While 7420 put exynos 1 year ahead of snapdragon, future is yet to be revealed.

They had worse performance in almost every timeframe you choose.

Do you mean exynos or snapdragon by they?

Snapdragon. A lot of times I saw complaints about lags since Adreno 220 times (GS2 had no issues with Mali GPU though synthetics told that it has the same performance as Adreno). Also I've tested Adreno 320 with FullHD, it is a joke compared to PowerVR SGX544 GPU - the performance is up to 1,5 times slower. As for the newer ones Mali T760MP6 is slightly faster than Adreno 420 and Mali T760MP8 is slightly faster than Adreno 430 but the difference became definitely less. But I've also tested Adreno 418 on 2K (LG G4) which as I thought would have been a joke performer but I was mistaken. It is as fast as Mali T760MP6 or even better in some cases (but also slower in some too). That could be LG's gaming mode which reduces texture qualities a bit but still there are no visible artefacts and the performance is good enough.

Thats interesting, lets see what 530 and exynos (may be T860/T880 MP4/6/8) brings next year, this year we have choice between 430,418,420,T760MP6 and T760MP8.

I wanna dig deeper to see the real world difference between Adreno 418 and 430. Also next time I'll turn off special LG gaming mode and see what will happen with its performance. Also I don't think that Adreno 530 will suddenly overtake ARM GPUs or IMG ones.

Did you guys all miss the resolution is 1280x720 LOL. Probably a 7422 at that resolution not having to push as many pixels as QHD. I wouldn't be going bananas over this score at all based on that alone

Man you clearly don't know how antutu works, the resolution does not change the score much, if at all. Resolution has nothing to do with CPU/RAM/Storage, only the GPU... 30k improvement just in GPU would equal to something like the Tegra X1 GPU. Please stop spreading stuff you do not know about

Did you miss that the GPU scores are average copared with most high end SoCs? LOL Most of the numbesr are coming from the CPU part, so resolution doesn´t affect that.

Clearly the new Note tablet.

Clearly buying that if true.

Nvidia something?

Looks like an improved Galaxy Alpha according to model name and screen resolution. As for specs it seems to be quad A72@2,5 GHz + quad A53 or eight Mongoose cores (maybe biglittle). The GPU is an old MaliT628 or T760 with a well known MP6 configuration. I highly doubt it is an MP8 variant or even a T880MP6.

If this isn't fake, I agree that the model name and screen resolution suggest the Galaxy Alpha. And again, if this isn't fake, I agree with the rest of your conclusions about the CPU and GPU. Which leads me to think that the Galaxy S7 could have this same CPU (or even better) paired with a superior GPU (Mali T880 or custom) which would be an absolutely crazy device with an Antutu score over 100,000! Things just might be getting very interesting.

It's may be there new tablet (as per that 3 thing image for the 13th) One thing it's not using is the sd 820, so if you think it's that, then try again, this is the 7422 or a new Samsung cpu, I say new Samsung cpu, and it end Apple CPU scores

Tablet perhaps?
