Samsung Galaxy S4 with Exynos 5 Octa Processor Runs Faster Than the Snapdragon 600 Variant
With its 8-core architecture, the Exynos 5 Octa is hailed as one of the best processors available. However, little is known how the Exynos-powered Galaxy S4 fares against its near-identical twin, the Galaxy S4 with Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor.
A recently performed benchmarking session with the AnTuTu software put the LTE-less Samsung Galaxy S4 with Exynos 5 Octa alongside the LTE-capable Galaxy S4 powered by the Snapdragon 600. It was found that the Exynos version surpassed the Snapdragon model by about 5,000 points.
Previously, we have discovered that the Exynos version of Galaxy S4 overpowered the LG Optimus G Pro, Sony Xperia Z and HTC One by a few thousands points. It should be noted that the Exynos 5 Octa is clocked lower at 1.6GHz, compared to the Snapdragon 600 at 1.9GHz.
An even faster Galaxy S4 variant (SHV-E300S) with LTE support and Exynos 5 Octa processor clocked at 1.8GHz will also be released. But unfortunately, Samsung plans to reserve the special edition model only for its home country, South Korea.
