It will still be garbage for It sucks being stuck with this inferior version…

A fresh set of alleged Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 and Samsung Exynos 2100 Geekbench scores have surfaced online. A single and multi-core score of 1,323 and 4,215 indicates that Samsung’s silicon seems to best Qualcomm’s offering, which managed to score 1,204 and 4,121. The increased single-core performance is likely a result of both chips using ARM’s Cortex-X1 Super core.

Multiple leaks have effectively confirmed that the core configurations of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 and Samsung Exynos 2100 will be identical. It is still too early to crown a winner, as neither will hit the market until 2021. Both chips’ alleged Geekbench scores have surfaced yet again.

The Exynos 2100 (formerly known as Exynos 1000) and Qualcomm Snapdragon 875’s Geekbench scores first appeared on the Korean website Clien.net. Another user now claims to have a fresh set of results obtained from two Galaxy S21 variants running Samsung and Qualcomm’s silicon. The Exynos 2100 and Snapdragon 875 net a single-core score of 1,323 and 1,204. Similarly, the multi-core scores are 4,215 and 4,121. Enabling power saving mode seems to level the playing field, with both devices netting near-identical results.

Single-core Multi-core Single-core w/power saving mode Multi-core w/power saving mode
Snapdragon 875 1,204 4,121 1,114 3,067
Exynos 2100 1,323 4,215 1,129 3,019

The above result puts the Exynos 2100 significantly ahead of the Snapdragon 875. It is somewhat contradictory to the former’s previous Geekbench listing, which stated the opposite. However, we should treat these results with a healthy dose of skepticism. Although Clien has been right about several things in the past, the lack of an actual Geekbench listing puts the legitimacy of these results in question.

I’ve been an avid PC gamer since the age of 8. My passion for gaming eventually pushed me towards general tech, and I’ve been a stereotypical ‘nerd’ ever since. I have a degree in mechanical engineering and have worked in the manufacturing industry. When I’m not writing news on Notebookcheck, you can find me playing or watching an intense match of DOTA 2
