Yesterday we saw the AnTuTu disclose the specifications of the Galaxy S7 with chipset Exynos 8890. Now it is the turn of another famous benchmark brings details of the new flagship of Samsung. This time along with some specifications also have the numbers obtained in the test, it is not very encouraging. The GeekBench is a tool that measures only the raw performance of the CPU and memory. Two tests are performed: the first uses only one processor core while the second enables all, which in this case is eight, to get an idea of all the chipset’s potential.
Here we see the Exynos 8890 win 1873 points on the single-core test and a lower value than has been seen with the Snapdragon 820, which managed to just over 2,200 points. Already in the multi-core test we see the Samsung SoC reach almost 6000 points, more than its rival Qualcomm can achieve, but expected by having four extra cores. Furthermore, the benchmark shows that the chip is working at 1.6 GHz (expected value for slower cores Cortex-A53) and also confirms the presence of Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
The GeekBench does not get to spend as complete information as in AnTuTu, which revealed that the new flagship of Samsung will come with a 5.1-inch screen and resolution HD Quad – keeping the same configuration as the current flagship of the company. In addition, it was said that the device will have 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage.
