A Korean source has published performance data for a new single-chip Samsung platform. Judging by the results, which are impressive, the flagship Exynos 1000 was tested.
The platform scored 1302 points in a single-threaded test and 4250 points in a multi-threaded one. For comparison, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 scores 1159 and 4090 points, respectively. That is, Samsung SoC is bypassing its competitor at the current stage, but what results will be shown by commercial versions of these platforms is not yet clear. Typically, Qualcomm SoCs noticeably “improve” in performance as the date of the official premiere approaches.
Both the Exynos 10,000 and the Snapdragon 875 are rumored to have at least one high-performance Arm Cortex-X1 core. True, these cores can be heavily modified by developers, so the presence of Cortex-X1 does not at all guarantee the same performance in resource-intensive applications, games and benchmarks.
