We have seen plenty of leaks about the Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphone that will be launching soon. The leaks in the past have talked about nearly every facet of the smartphone including that there will be two version of the device. One version of the S7 will use Samsung’s on Exynos8890 chip and the other will use a Snapdragon 820.
In those leaked benchmarks comparing chip performance the Snapdragon 820 version outscored Samsung’s own chip in some aspects while falling behind in others. A newly leaked benchmark compares the GPU performance between the two versions of the S7 using AnTuTu. This time out the Snapdragon 820 GPU is shown to outperform the GPU in the Exynos 8890 version by up to 20%.
The Exynos 8890 version of the S7 scores 105,000 points on AnTuTu. The Snapdragon 820 version scored 125,288 points. That is a difference of 20,000 points between the two versions of the smartphone. The version of the S7 tested with the Snapdragon 820 processor is said to be the AT&T S7 Edge for the US. The version of the S7 with the Exynos chip inside is said to be the international version of the smartphone.
There is a chance that these benchmark results are faked, we will have to wait a bit longer for real benchmarks of the smartphones. If these benchmarks are really from pre-release devices, there is a chance that software updates could affect the benchmark scores when the final devices are released. The otherleaked benchmarks are from Geekbench and shows that the Exynos 8890 performs better in multicore with the Snapdragon 820 doing better in single core performance. The official launch is expected for the S7 on March 11.
