Samsung Galaxy S8 is easily the most anticipated Android phone for 2017 and now it just got better with the new in-house Exynos 8895 SoC! For months now we’ve been hearing rumours about Exynos 8895 spotting a 3GHz CPU Clock! Needless to say, these clock speeds have never been achieved before. Using the newest 10nm fabrication process it could actually be true. Today, a real geekbench score appeared showing off Exynos 8895’s real CPU prowess!

Samsung S8 Exynos Info and Geekbench
The Exynos 9 Series (8895) comes with a countless number of innovations all geared toward one simple goal: to provide the best mobile experience ever. The Exynos 8895, built on a cutting-edge 10nm FinFET process, features a 2nd generation custom CPU core and an advanced GPU for exceptional performance with low power consumption. Using Mali G71 Graphics bringing you the fastest and most efficient graphics experience inside a smartphone.
Truly impressive results indeed compared to Snapdragon 821 used in Xiaomi Mi5s Plus and most flagships today.
We all know the impressive performance of Snapdragon 821, however, Exynos 8895 clearly has advantages, especially with multi-core performance.
Samsung S8 will come with both Snapdragon 835 and Exynos 8895 variants and depending on where you live you won’t have a choice in which one you’ll get. Samsung usually ships Galaxy S units in Asia and Eastern Europe with Exynos chips and leaves Snapdragon 835 for USA and Western Europe. Will there be a big difference? I personally believe Snapdragon 821 is more than enough for most users, although, there’s plenty of people who like to know they have the fastest chip around in their pocket. Most noteworthy, let’s see how both SD835 and Exynos 8895 compare to other chips.
Exynos 8895 comparison with Snapdragon 835,821 and Kirin 960
Interesting enough, Kirin 960 is very close to Snapdragon 835 and Exynos 8895, not bad for a 2016 chip! Users who bought Huawei Mate 9 will most certainly be pleased.
While multi-core scores on newer chips are impressive compared to Apple’s A10 chips they fade-out. CPU performance is quite important as your daily tasks rely on CPU power.A wide gap between Apple’s architecture and ARM’s development can be seen in single-core performance.
I do believe we need ARM to step up and deliver a better and bigger single core than A73.
Exynos 8895 GPU and do we really need a faster phone?
Exynos 8895’s GPU performance is yet to be revealed, although with a 12-16 Core Mali G71 GPU inside it will most likely be more than enough. Without professional apps or heavy games to take advantage of this power do we really need it? Sure, I edit videos and articles on the go and could benefit, but single core performance is what I need mostly.
I would prefer the same performance in Snapdragon 821, but with much better battery life. Hopefully, this will be possible with Snapdragon 660.
With Samsung S8 reportedly costing 900$+, are you willing to pay for power and features you don’t use?
Especially when you can get Snapdragon 821 phones for three times less like Xiaomi Mi5S?
