It’s no secret that Snapdragon processors perform better compared to Exynos chipsets. That is the reason why some markets are asking Samsung to use what Qualcomm offers. We find it ironic that in South Korea, the home country of the OEM, most Samsung phones run on Qualcomm Snapdragon. We remember to mention that Samsung’s chip division is humiliated by this. The Samsung Exynos SoCs are still unsatisfactory compared to the Snapdragon SoC. The latest Exynos 2100 is no different if we’re going to see some benchmark results.
To be clear, the Exynos 2100 chipset is a huge leap from its predecessor, the Exynos 990. It offers improved performance and energy efficiency. Unsurprisingly, the two have been compared side by side.
Two variants of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra have been tested. The Snapdragon 888 is still the clear winner, although the Exynos 2100 performed very well too. Qualcomm’s flagship processor outperforms the Exynos chip in most tasks. It also consumes less energy described.
Exynos 2100 VS. Snapdragon 888
This is not really surprising, but we expect Exynos to improve even more and be on par with the Snapdragon chipsets, especially in the premium flagship category. Now let’s talk about numbers and facts. According to a report, this is how both chipsets behaved:
• Exynos 2100 Mali-G78 GPU is 40% faster than Mali-G77 GPU (Exynos 990)
• Snapdragon 888’s Adreno 660 GPU is better than Mali-G78 GPU (Exynos 2100)
• Exynos 2100 consumers 18-35% more power compared to Snapdragon 888
• Exynos 2100 single threaded CPU performance is 27% better compared to Exynos 990
The Exynos team has done better, but still not enough to beat Qualcomm’s Snapdragon. Perhaps Samsung needs to focus more on CPU performance. The 5nm process also needs to be improved in many ways. As for Qualcomm, it should continue its great work and still not be lazy with its triumphs.
