At least one possible leaked benchmark already suggests that Samsung’s new Exynos processor, which it appears to be rolling out in the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge, is one mean animal. On Wednesday, another new benchmark spilled, this time measuring the Galaxy S6 Edge performance on GeekBench. The score is pretty astounding.
The Galaxy S6 Edge notched up a score of 1,495 points in the GeekBench single-core test. Then, in multi-core test, which puts the 64-bit Exynos 7420 and all eight cores to the test, the phone received a score of 5,375. If memory serves correctly, that’s the best score we’ve ever seen achieved in GeekBench from a mobile device. Yes, it’s possible that the benchmark is bogus, but we are expecting big things from Samsung’s next flagship. Plus, this might be good news for folks who might have otherwise been skeptical about Samsung’s decision to ditch the Snapdragon 810 processor to instead include its own chip.
March 1 is sneaking up, and that’s when Samsung is almost certainly going to let this monster out of the cage.
