Reports earlier established that Samsung might be working on an Exynos processor, boasting a whole new CPU architecture with its Exynos M1 or Mongoose. Now, benchmark results have already been leaked out, showing off improved efficiency and implying that the company is keen on continually optimizing the chipset's performance.
Rumors suggest that the SoC Samsung is currently focusing on could be the Exynos 8890 processor.
The new photo that's been released on Weibo implies that the new Samsung Exynos M1 Mongoose is being tested at a frequency of 2.3GHz.
The processor garnered a score of 2,294 points in the single-core performance test while it logged a score of 6,908 points in the multi-core performance test.
When this SoC was tried in Power Saving mode, it gained 1,710 points in the single-core test as well as 4,896 points in the multi-core test.
When it was tested in Ultra Power Saving Mode, the chipset obtained 1,100 points in the single-core performance test and 3,209 points in the multi-core test.
It is anticipated that the processor's overall performance will improve the moment the very first device sporting the chipset will be unveiled in the competitive market.
The Samsung Exynos 7420, on the other hand, got 1,486 points in the single-core performance and 4,970 points in the multi-core performance evaluation.
Meanwhile, Apple's A9 SoC, deemed as one of the speediest mobile chips to date, received 2,487 and 4,330 points in single-core and multi-core GeekBench tests, respectively.
We earlier reported that the rumored Samsung Galaxy S7, believed to have the codename Samsung Project Lucky, was rumored to house a 1.5GHz Octa-core Exynos 8890 SoC.
Reports have surfaced, revealing that Project Lucky already went through a Geekbench 3 performance test last Sept. 12. It obtained 1,532 and 5,434 points in GeekBench’s single-core and multicore tests.
We also talked about preliminary tests showing the iPhone 6s is almost two times faster than other devices in the market, thanks to the A9 chip, which is responsible for the device's remarkable performance.
The A9 processor gained a single-core score of 2,522 for both the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus, demonstrating that the chip is way more advanced than its rivals in the market.
