3 years after the launch of the legendary Xiaomi Mi A1, Android One is dying

A benchmark certifies that the Galaxy S21 from the US will be more powerful than the European ones


The controversy is served: the Qualcomm processor of the Samsung Galaxy S21 seems to be more powerful than the Exynos processor.

Each new generation of the Samsung Galaxy S series brings with it a new batch of processors. And every year, we have to talk about big differences regarding the performance offered by the chips that Samsung integrates in its devices based on the market they are intended for. And this year, it was not going to be any different.

At least that's what the first leaked synthetic tests suggest, confirming that, for yet another year, The Galaxy S21 sold in South Korea and the United States will be more powerful than those sold in Europe and the rest of the regions.

The Galaxy S21 with Qualcomm processor will surpass the Exynos one more year

Earlier this year, we already saw the Snapdragon 865 far outperform the Exynos 990 in the Galaxy S20s, especially in terms of overall performance and energy efficiency.

Something that, by the way, led more than 35,000 people to sign a proposal that asked Samsung to stop using Exynos processors, and also disappointed the team in charge of developing the Exynos 990, as the company itself had decided to use a processor from Qualcomm for Galaxy S20 models sold in the brand's home country.

On this occasion, we know that the Snapdragon 875 and Exynos 2100 are the chips chosen by Samsung to give life to each of the versions of the Galaxy S21 series.

Now some benchmarks have certified that the model developed by Qualcomm is a chip with a higher gross power to that of the Samsung Exynos model, by obtaining a score of 1120 and 3319 points in the tests monkey Y multi-core respectively, compared to the 1038 and 3060 of the processor developed by Samsung.

It must be taken into account, of course, that the performance test carried out on the Samsung Galaxy S21 with Exynos processor already has two months old, and the possibility that Samsung could have made some adjustments and improvements to its processor, which reduce the apparent gap in performance between the two platforms, is not ruled out.

In any case, it is clear that one more year the controversy is served: Unless Samsung has made leaps and bounds in the development of its processors, models with a Qualcomm chip will be able to offer a better performance and energy efficiency than its brothers with Exynos processor. In any case, we will have to wait until January of next year to be able to find out about doubts.
