Galaxy S9+ Exynos 9810 Geekbench scores highlight performance gain

The first Galaxy S9 Exynos 9810 benchmark surfaced last week and the results reiterated reports that there’s going to be a noticeable performance difference in the Snapdragon 845 and Exynos 9810-powered variants of the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+. The latter has now surfaced on Geekbench and the latest results once again show that the Exynos 9810 will likely not leave much to be desired in the performance category.

Galaxy S9+ Exynos 9810 Geekbench scores

The benchmark result for the Galaxy S9+ SM-G965F returns single-core and multi-core scores of 3773 and 9024, respectively. It comes with 6GB of RAM and runs Android 8.0 Oreo. The scores are slightly higher than the Exynos 9810-powered Galaxy S9 which returned a single-core score of 3648 and multi-core score of 8894. The Galaxy S9 doesn’t come with 6GB of RAM, though, it only gets 4GB.

Both Exynos variants have returned significantly higher scores than the Snapdragon 845 which Samsung will use for the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ in select markets. Recent benchmarks of Qualcomm’s latest chip returned median scores of 2400 and 8400.

Samsung has been criticized for better optimization of its Exynos variants compared to the Snapdragon variants in the past but if these results are anything to go by, the Exynos 9810 will be in a league of its own.

As we’ve mentioned many times in the past, benchmark results don’t reveal the full story about a device’s performance but they do give us an idea of what to expect. Moreover, benchmark results can easily be faked as well, even if the results look within the realm of possibility.

We’ll get a better picture of the real-world performance of the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ once the device is released next month. Samsung will unveil its new flagship on February 25.

Who cares they are so far behind apple for bench mark score and speed.
They should concentrate on updates and work with google to speed up the operating system.
Beta testing for 3 months then pulled

With they would sort out the issues with Qualcomm so they can sell Exynos powered devices everywhere.

If Samsung keeps this up then next years flagship should be above the Exynos 9 benchmark scores.

If this is true then the Snapdragon versions will be underpowered and blown away by both Exynos versions. I don’t mind if Samsung optimizes the Exynos versions better than the Snapdragon ones. Samsung should use Exynos in all versions.

It’s Samsung strategy to ensure all competitors can’t release phones at the same time as the s line by buying up all the Snapdragon chips first.

Very clever move and also couple with cheaper option to meet the USA network constraints rather than making the exynos with more components.

Though I’ve always been happy with the exynos chips since the s6

If the scores are right then it’s clear indication that more ram is better and that the s9 is inferior.

It’s ‘Pay more, Get more’ philosophy introduced by sh*tty Apple. They tried to create 2 slabs in high end segment, and succeeded. That means if you own a flagship product, which S9 will be, there would still be a better smartphone, in this case S9+. It’s more about ‘Want’ than ‘Need’.

Well they should offer the pay more get.more option for the smaller phone. Not everyone wants a huge chunky thing in their pockets
