The Exynos version of the Note Edge with stellar performance according to latest benchmarks

The Exynos version of the Note Edge with stellar performance according to latest benchmarks
When Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note Edge -- a special edition of the Note with a screen that slopes towards the right side of the device -- we were pretty impressed. Sure, the novel concept remains untested with the market, but it's definitely cool enough to get the approval of a bunch of geeks. Where the Note Edge disappointed, however, was its performance, especially compared with the Note 4 -- both of which we benchmarked on the show floor at IFA 2014.

According to our results then, the Snapdragon 805 versions of the Note 4 and the Note Edge weren't at all comparable when it came to synthetic tests -- the Edge remained in the dust, with scores comparable with the now aging Note 3 and its Snapdragon 800 chip. As it turns out, however, at least according to an AnTuTu run courtesy of Korean blog MutantCell, the Exynos 5433-powered version won't have such a problem, and will perform as well as the SD805-based Note 4. In case you're wondering, the Exynos 5433 is the latest flagship chip from Samsung, and makes use of eight cores arranged in an ARM big.LITTLE configuration (so two clusters of four cores), along with a powerful Mali-T760 GPU.

Before we go, let us make it clear that the Note Edge we tested at IFA 2014 was likely a pre-production unit running on test software (a theory further corroborated by the fact that the device still hasn't hit the market). In other words, there's a very good chance that the Snapdragon 805-equipped version will also not disappoint after Samsung has done some fine-tuning.

Only 1 million units to be released so good luck to you. But if I were you I would wait for the Note 5. I'm sure this Exynos beast will be inside the next generation of Galaxy S/Note series.

So Chris.P.. How much do the iphone 6 plus & the iphone 6 score in antutu v5? Because antutu scores.. along with those of Quadrant, Geekbench & 3DMark were mysteriously not included in the benchmark performances of both the new iphones.

John VVVVVVVVV is a biased reviewer with no real tech knowledge. He will praise Apple products like he is one of them..

AnTuTu hangs and crashes on the iPhone 6. No mystery there.

AntuTu isn't the definitive benchmark..........Gamebench is...THIS is the real-world And it is almost a guarantee that the MaliT760 will suffer more framedrops and microlags than the Adreno 420 Dream On Samsung fanboys, don't stop dreaming lmao!

In GameBench snapdragons suck. So in real life too. Even Exynos 5410 delivers higher framerate than Snapdragon 800. Will you guarantee that Adreno will be faster than Mali T760? ;)

It's pretty obvious that Apple copied Samsung on this one, when they realize that Sammy is coming out with Galaxy Note Edge, they went ahead and release iPhone Bend.

Exynos 5433 also scores about 4300 in multicore on geekbench 3. And it was only in 32 bit mode, imagine what it will do in 64 bit mode. Also arm mali t670 has 326.4 Gflops of gpu power which is comparable with the tegra k1's beastly gpu. Impressive!

Lot of power .. but still Samsung needs to optimize Touchwiz .. Also, real-life scenarios will differ for sure.

My Sprint Note 2 has an old Exynos CPU and hopefully the Sprint Note 4 gets an Exynos, but I highly doubt it. I also like that the Exynos models use a better Wolfson DAC for audio playback.

so exynos powered phones have better sound than qualcomm powered?
