Apple’s A11 Bionic is currently the most powerful processor in a mobile device. So far, none of the Android SoCs have been able to crush it in terms of performance. However, the gap just narrowed thanks to Samsung’s Exynos 9810 processor.
For the first time, an Android chipset has crossed the 4000 mark on Geekbench’s single-core test. The device used for the test is the Samsung Galaxy S9+.
The Galaxy S9+ scored 4004 points in the single core test. That’s super impressive for an android phone but it pales to that of the iPhone X. A search for benchmark results for Apple’s flagship device on Geekbench will present you with several results of the device crossing 4000 points.
It appears the Galaxy S9+ above is overclocked as the base frequency is 2.0GHz as against 1.79GHz of those with lower results. There is still 6GB of RAM on board though. The multi-core test score is also pretty high at 10012.
The Exynos 9810 will make another appearance in the Galaxy Note 9 scheduled to arrive next month. It already appeared on Geekbench but the scores aren’t as impressive.
