Samsung to add a modem to its Exynos chips18
Earlier today, we told you that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 outscored the Exynos 7420 in AnTuTu's benchmark test. There were some interesting test results, such as the 15% higher score tallied by the Samsung chip's Mali-T760 GPU for 3D graphics, suggesting that Sammy's SoC could be the better one for gaming.
Samsung's decision to reduce its reliance on Qualcomm, whether explicitly stated or not, comes at an interesting time as the company's dominance in the smartphone world is slipping. This could be temporary and merely the result of Apple's decision to offer larger screened iPhones. Or, Samsung's fall from grace could be symptomatic of a larger problem affecting the company's smartphone offerings.
Thanks for the tip!
