More Galaxy S9 Exynos vs Snapdragon benchmarks leak, top the iPhone X score

More Galaxy S9 Exynos vs Snapdragon benchmarks leak, top the iPhone X score
After seeing Samsung's newfangled Exynos 9810 chipset that will be in the Galaxy S9 make the benchmarking rounds yesterday with 4GB RAM, today brings us the Galaxy S9+ appearing on AnTuTu with a Snapdragon 845 on board, and 6GB of the stuff. 

This is arguably the handset that leaked not long ago, and scored similar to 9810 in the multi-core tally, but much lower in single core, so what else are we learning about it from AnTuTu's post today? 

Well, the screen resolution of the SM-G965 handset (S9+) won't be 1080 x 2020 pixels, as is depicted here, since the test is run in a Full HD+ regime on AnTuTu, yet this resolution returns the same 18.5:9 screen ratio that the S8's 1440 x 2960 pixels display sports, so that's more like what we will have in the end.

The 6 GB RAM amount is seemingly exclusive to the S9+, as all benchmarks of the SM-G960 (S9) we've seen so far, are listing the smaller flagship with 4GB RAM. They both share 64GB of base storage, though, and, of course, the processing power suppliers. 

There are no details on the camera, but the S9+ should land with a 12MP variable F2.4/F1.5 aperture + 13MP F1.5 dual camera set, for the first time in a Galaxy S-line phone. Make of these benchies what you will, but the S9 and S9+ will be powerful beasts no matter what chipset lands in which carrier model. 

As you can see from the S8+ and Note 8 benchmarks below, the S9 and S9+ score much higher both on AnTuTu, as well as Geekbench, no matter if they have a Snapdragon 845, or Exynos 9810 inside. If you add the iPhone X in our tool below, the leaked AnTuTu score of the S9+ will beat that, too, though the Geekbench tally of the A11 tops them all still.

Snapdragon get rekt by exynos lol ... All what Samsung will do is underclock 9810 to match the much weaker 845 ... And we have a king of battery life

I doubt Samsung will underclock the Exynos 9810, I think they intend to use a 6GB SD845 to offset the performance gap between the two SoCs. That's why the Exynos will likely only get 4GB. Wouldn't be surprised if the Note 9 SD845 variant will get 8GB vs a 6GB Exynos.

RAM can't offset processing power. The s9+ will have 6GB while the s9 will have 4 GB.

Try telling Apple that, that's what they've been doing the past few years.

They've never done this for the past 5 years or so lol. The last time was with s2. In fact, the only 6GB s8+ was with exynos, so that puts a wrench in your statement.

They won't underclock it. They usually don't do it. The 8890 absolutely humiliated the 820 and Samsung didn't do anything to match their performance, and this is going to follow it. I see a lot of buyer's remorse in US buyers in the future. Samsung is almost ready with their CDMA modem and they should be able to release a full exynos s10 in all the markets. That's their aim, and the 9810 is the perfect example to show the world that they can make good CPUs. Also, the 845 should have a better GPU, so it's not that bad for US customers.

All phones with 835 are faster than S8 /Note 8. All phones with 820 are faster than S7 All phones with 810 are faster than S6 All phones with 845 will be faster than S9/N9 This cycle will never break.

"All phones with 810 are faster than S6" Are you trying to deliberately lose credibility? See this:https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2015/04/in-depth-with-the-snapdragon-810s-heat-problems/ Let me quote that article: "Throttling processor speed in smartphones, tablets, and laptops to avoid overheatingis completely normal, but the 810 runs especially warm. More interestingly, Samsung’s Exynos 7420—a chip which uses the same combination of Cortex A53 and A57 CPU cores at roughly the same maximum clock speed—is much faster than the 810, and it holds up better during extended use." And again: "A 2.0GHz Cortex A57 processor can be faster than a 2.7GHz Krait 450 processor if it's actually allowed to run at 2.0GHz for sustained periods, but the 810 throttles so quickly that the 805 and even the 801 can beat the 810 when performing sustained workloads." And you say any phone with the Snapdragon 810 beat the Galaxy S6? The Galaxy S6 destroyed every other SD810 handset! Get your facts right.

1) SD 810 was a failure 2) exynos 7420 was very efficient and destroyed all sd810 devices , the only weak point was aggressive ram management ( software issue ) 3) exynos 8890 was faster than most sd820 ( not in the gpu ) 4) only the OnePlus 5t and Xperia xz was faster than exynos 8895 ... 5) the exynos 9810 will destroy sd845 devices

All phones with snapdragon will throttle faster than Exyons Lol.

you are hallucinating man, especially with the S6, but even if you were right, this is not the right way to compare between SoCs, there are so much variables between a samsung phone and another, if you want to know how any SD and its exynos counterpart compares, both phones must be identical except for the SoC, the S5 / Note 4/ S7 / S8 / Note 8 are prefect examples, and each SD variant got smoked by its exynos counterpart

There's not really any use for the processing power but all of this idea well for when I upgrade from the S8+ to the S10+

"There's not really any use for the processing power" VR says no.

VR is so overrated, it's fun for couple times trying it. but like Animoji, it fades away.

This should be great. Exynos FTW.

Come on phonearena, y'all suppose to know everything about phones. The reason why the resolution is 2220*1080 is because thats what the default setting is fresh out of the box. If you want max resolution you can just adjust it in the settings.
