Samsung Galaxy S8 powered by the Exynos 8895 SoC, breaks the 7000 ceiling at Geekbench for multi-cor
The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ are considered among the top two Android handsets currently available. Each model has two different variants based on the chipset employed. In the U.S., the two flagship phones feature the Snapdragon 835 chipset carrying an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 540 GPU. Elsewhere, the home grown Exynos 8895 SoC is under the hood, carrying an octa-core CPU and the Mali-G71 MP20 GPU.

Today, the Exynos 8895 SoC powered Galaxy S8 was put through the Geekbench benchmark test, and the multi-core score of 7101 was one of the highest results ever seen on a smartphone. The single-core score, at 2121, was nowhere near a record for that test.

The Exynos 8895 chipset is made using the 10nm FinFET process, which means that it is a boss when it comes to performance and power consumption. Because the beauty of a smartphone design is in the eye of the beholder, there is no way to objectively score how one smartphone looks compared to another. But certain aspects of performance can be measured, which is where benchmark tests come into play.
