After Qualcomm have announced the new Snapdragon 888 system on chip just a few days ago we now have a leaked benchmark for the Samsung Galaxy S21.
Galaxy S21 Benchmark
The Samsung Galaxy S21 has appeared on geekbench 5 under the model number SM-G991U and it shows us the standard galaxy s21. We know that it is using the snapdragon 888 as the motherboard is listed as “lahaina” and this specific model has 8GB of ram.
The benchmark shows a single core score of 1075 and a multicore score of 2916. These results are very underwhelming and only slightly higher than that of the galaxy s20 with the snapdragon 865. This benchmark if correct will be from an early prototype so there is still plenty of time for optimisation from software. Qualcomm advised a 25% increase in performance from the predecessor so these scores will no doubt increase as time goes on. One thing that we have been advised will be different this year however is the Exynos Vs. Snapdragon battle. Multiple sources have reported that we can expect the Exynos 2100 galaxy s21 to perform better than the snapdragon 888 version for CPU performance. We haven’t had any news on the GPU as of yet but as soon as we get the full details we will update.
We already have the full specs & design details for all 3 versions of the Samsung Galaxy S21 and for those that have missed it you can check out the articles below.
