Watch Galaxy S20's Snapdragon 865 processor solve Rubic's cube faster than anybody


We are going to see a real competition in the world of hardcore mobile processing units this year, as Samsung's Exynos 990 and Snapdragon 865 chipsets that will power the Galaxy S20 will be done at separate foundry production facilities but on the same second-gen 7nm process.

Qualcomm revealed at the 865's unveiling that it is crafted with TSMC's second-generation 7nm process, the same one that allowed Apple to cram 8.6 billion transistors in its A13 chipset in the iPhone 11 series, rather than Samsung's EUV method that the Exynos 990 is made with.

For comparison, the Snapdragon 855 that is in the Galaxy S10 for the US, is done at the first-gen 7nm production node, while Exynos 9820 for the global versions is on 8nm. The Snapdragon is still faster than the Exynos, if we go by the leaked Galaxy S20 benchmarks with the two different chipsets.


As if to cement Qualcomm's superiority further, Xiaomi outed a few videos that demonstrate the power of the millions of transistors in Snapdragon 865 that is on top of that optimized for imaging and machine learning. 

The most impressive one you can see above - the Mi phone with Snapdragon 865 solving a Rubic's cube faster than the world champion, but the one below where the chipset that will be in the US versions of the S20 manages to deal with a 10GB file in no time, is no less interesting.

This proves nothing. That’s more storage speed. Transcode video or actually do something with the cpu

"watch the Galaxy S20", but the advertisement is for the Mi 10. And is the SSD sata or NVME? The fact that it is an i7 doesn't change anything and if it's a SSD sata, UFS 2.0 wins, maybe even EMMC 5.1 wins.

I just hope phone companies will stop at 21:9, it would be insane to go beyond that. But I haven't accept this new aspect ratio yet, I'm using 16:9 and I'll upgrade to 18:9.
