Samsung Exynos 8895 vs Qualcomm Snapdragon 835
Samsung’s Exynos chip has always been the top of the charts in terms of performance. Lately, however, Qualcomm managed to crawl back and gain much traction with the Snapdragon 835.
In this benchmark comparison, we used the Galaxy Note8 running an Exynos 8895 and the Xiaomi Mi6 running the Snapdragon 835. The Note8 was set at full HD+ resolution while the Mi6 already has a full HD native resolution.
Here’s the result of the benchmarks:
|Samsung Exynos 8895||Qualcomm Snapdragon 835|
|High-Power Processor||4 x Exynos M1 2.31GHz||4 x Kryo 280 2.45GHz|
|Low-power Processor||4 x ARM Cortex A53 1.8GHz||4 x Kryo 280 1.9GHz|
|GPU||Mali G71 MP20||Adreno 540|
|GeekBench 4 Single-Core||2,008||1,938|
|GeekBench 4 Multi-Core||6,093||6,720|
|PCMark Work 1.0||6,897||7,732|
|PCMark Work 2.0||5,898||6,692|
The Exynos 8895 and Snapdragon 835 are statistically tied with each other in Antutu Benchmark and GeekBench 4 single-core scores. In multi-core test (GeekBench 4), the Snapdragon 835 pulled away from the Exynos 8895 by about 10% difference.
The gap is also reflected in PCMark Work Performance 1.0 where the Snapdragon 835 got a 12% point advantage and 17% with Work Performance 2.0.
In the graphics department, the Adreno 540 trumped the Mali-G71MP20 by a margin of a little over 13%. The better GPU certainly contributed to the overall performance gains of the Snapdragon 835 in all the benchmarks we tested it with.
