Samsung Galaxy S7 And S7 Edge Benchmarked (the Exynos Flavor)

By 12:43 Sat, 31 Jul 2021 Comments


The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge splashed down at the MWC and while their cameras and screens are the biggest improvements, they come with brand recent chipsets, which we promptly benchmarked.


We tested both the S7 and S7 edge and the incompatibility in form factor didn't create a incompatibility in performance, so we united their scores.

Note that this is the Exynos 8890 chipset, which is built on a 14nm process and features a total of eight custom Samsung cores - four small and four gigantic ones. They work in tandem with Mali-T880 GPU to deliver awesome performance.

AnTuTu 6 shows a sizeable jump in performance over the recent guard, the S6 edge+.

Samsung broke away from the stock ARM Cortex cores, but comparing them to the Huawei Mate 8 (Kirin 950, 4x A72 + 4x A53) the two seem on par (we don't have single-core scores for the Mate 8 though).

The GPU proved strong at a fixed 1080p resolution, games can even run at native QHD resolution if they haged effects at a sane setting.

Note that the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium seems to top the Galaxy S7 in onclassy screen tests despite its 4K screen, but that's only becautilize it runs most apps at 1080p.

Update Feb 25: The GFX 3.0 Manhattan (offscreen) score below has been updated as previously we had posted an incorrect, lower score.
