We’ve heard rumours that Samsung will be releasing different versions of its upcoming Galaxy Note 4 – a Snapdragon 805 version and an Exynos 5433 powered version. The behemoth’s in house Exynos has not had the best of runs in the last year when it came down to performance. However, it seems like they may have got it right with the latest versions of their Exynos Octa.
The performances of processors are gauged based on a few test algorithms which are meant to push the processor gradually to its limits. Based on the performance, the test algorithm then generates a arbitrary score – usually, the higher the score, the better the processor performed.
Apparently, AnTuTu, one of the more referred to benchmarking applications has managed to get its hands on the Exynos Octa 5433 processor and has benchmarked it against all the other processors. It appears that the results place the Exynos Octa 5433 well ahead of the rest of the market beating all processors except the nVidia Tegra K1 – which is impressive. Most importantly, the Snapdragon 805, which is made by Qualcomm the company behind a majority of the processors in Android Devices, was left in the dust. The performance of the Exynos Octa 5433 comes as a surprise given that the predecessor performed horribly in benchmarks and in real life situations. Also notable is the performance of the Graphic Processor in the Snapdragon 805 and the Exynos Octa 5433, where the latter also out performed.
However, we would advise to take the benchmarks with a grain of salt because of earlier reports that Samsung was fooling Benchmarks by altering software functions. But, if the benchmarks are indeed true, we can expect a really great phone in the upcoming Galaxy Note 4 be it Exynos or Snapdragon powered.
