First Galaxy S9 Exynos 9810 benchmark will leave you impressed

Samsung officially announced the Exynos 9810 processor not too long ago. The Galaxy S9 will be the first handset to be powered by this processor and now the first Galaxy S9 Exynos 9810 benchmark has surfaced online. The single-core and multi-core scores will leave you impressed when you compare them with the recent Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 benchmark.

First Galaxy S9 Exynos 9810 benchmark

An Exynos 9810-powered Galaxy S9 bearing model number SM-G960F has now surfaced on the Geekbench website. The listing mentions a single-core and multi-core score of 3648 and 8894 respectively.

That’s quite a significant improvement over the previous high-end chip – the Exynos 8895 – which powers devices like the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 8. The 8895-powered Note 8 posted 1960 and 6473 single-core and multi-score scores, respectively.

The Snapdragon 845 was benchmarked recently and it returned average (median) scores of 2400 and 8400. Samsung is going to use this chip for some variants of the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ in select markets like North America.

This suggests that the Exynos-powered variants of the Galaxy S9 will have quite a leg up on their Snapdragon counterparts in the performance department. Some reports have even gone so far as to suggest that the Snapdragon 845-powered Galaxy S9 will exhibit “mediocre” performance compared to the Exynos variant.

The SM-G960F that surfaced on Geekbench was running Android 8.0 Oreo with 4GB of RAM. Previous reports about the RAM and storage variants have suggested that only the Galaxy S9+ will feature 6GB of RAM. The chip’s base frequency is listed as 1.79GHz but it’s likely going to be the clock speed of the little cluster.

It goes without saying that benchmark results are not the end-all, be-all of performance indicators. One can count on the chip’s generational improvement to deliver performance gain but that will only be quantified once we put the device through real-world tests to see how it really performs. The scores themselves can only be properly verified once the device is out and people can run benchmarks themselves.

Bear in mind that it’s still early days as far as Exynos 9810 benchmarks are concerned, not to mention that benchmark results can easily be faked. Expect to see more results surface in the days leading up to the launch.

I would like to be impressed with firmware updates and no problems 😉

Benchmarks mean absolutely nothing in real world use. The Note8 was faster in actual use than Apples A11 chip which had an 11,000 multi-core score if I remember correctly. I only have had Exynos phones myself but still the Snapdragon 845 will be just as fast as the Exynos in real world usage.

Well looks like I’ll b hunting for the unlocked international version then locking it to Verizon! Gonna get the most performance for my money😪😪

That USB unlikely to work. The reason Samsung uses Qualcomm in the USA because of CDMA, a major component of the Sprint & Verizon network. If you switch to AT&T or T-Mobile you should have no issues using it.

I really hope Canada will again get Exynos version! We always used to get the Exynos versions, until S8/Note 8 where we got the Snapdragon. I hope Samsung Canada returns to Exynos.

I wish I could give you good news in regards to that but I read over and over all over the internet how US & Canada are going to get Qualcomm/Snapdragon 845 versions of S9 and S9 +. Hope the information is wrong but it doesn’t affect me since I’m always getting international version on eBay so I will be all set as soon as it comes out. Good luck

This is one speedy-as Galaxy S9! Almost doubles the single-core score of the previous Galaxy S8 model hehe!

The scores still falls short when compared to the iPhone 8 and x

That single core is one hell of a jump. 😲😲😲

Rubbish specs as it only have 4gb ram. It’s 2018 and 6gb should be minimum

Very disappointing

Android 8.0 fixes RAM issues so pipe down!

Still should have been 6gm ram. Right now its doesn’t represent it’s value for money. £100 more for similar specs in dumb down ram and single lens and same design.

They could have made a better phone but they only left it for the more expensive too big for one hand use phone to make people pay more money for the better model

DUDE, your not even in oreo and your asking for more ram, dont you think that a better optimization, such as oreo, could benefit us??’ I mean, 6gb is useless if a good optimization is done, I have oreo on my S8 and its good af with ram management.

More is always better and with optimization it will make it even better but never be useless. If it’s useless then why the s9 plus have 6gb ram? Reason is because more is better!

Apps will constantly grow in size over time therefore more memory will make it future proof for the future.

I know it’s not going to happen but I’d like to see that on a Samsung tablet.

S9 will indeed have 4GB ram, but s9+ will have 6GB. And difference is huge, up to 50% so Snapdragon is worse SOC this year. There is no optimization that could help sbapdragon achive these scores, as you will see other handsets with their snapdragon cpu.

At this point they should consider ditching as a whole Snapdragon variants of their devices and use all Exynos. All of the Snapdragon variants (be it flagship or mid-range or entry level) seem mediocre and underdelivering compared to their Exynos counterparts yet their prices are equal. They should just find a way to meet the higher quantity demand for Exynos chips and say goodbye to Snapdragon.

It’s there processor, it’s specifically built for s9 and note 9. Exynos in S8/note8 still outperformed snapdragon in Pixel XL2. So you can’t say Exynos is more OPTIMIZED than Snapdragon. It’s straight as a line, Exynos outperformed Snapdragon, in 2017 and in 2018 as well. And don’t forget 8895 was more efficient as well.

The improvement in the single-core score is amazing. Will be a huge performance-boost.

Not with 4gb ram, given the memory management track records the opening and retain apps in memory will be poor
