Samsung Galaxy Note 10’s Exynos 9825 benchmarks look promising

South Africa receives the Exynos versions of Samsung’s flagship smartphones, usually the slower variants compared to the Snapdragon-powered phones offered in the States. But, it seems that the Note 10’s Exynos chip may finally offer comparative, if not better, performance.

Samsung’s Exynos 9825-powered Galaxy Note 10 passed through benchmarking platform Geekbench this week, and left behind telling numbers.

Its single core score hit 4495, a lot higher than the Snapdragon 855-powered Note 10 — believed to be the 5G, 12GB RAM variant — at 3529. The Snapdragon did however score a better multicore score of 10 840 versus 10 223.

These numbers are promising though, especially when comparing the Samsung Galaxy S10’s two chipset offerings, where the Exynos was notably slower in all aspects.

The single core performance will likely improve applications where raw speed is required, like during gaming. But as smartphones generally don’t use their chipset’s at maximum throttle constantly, benchmark numbers are merely a guide.

That said, it looks like South Africans may actually get a Samsung flagship with performance that’s on par with the US.
