Samsung Exynos 5433 benches significantly higher than Qualcomm Snapdragon 805

Exynos 5433 benchmark

Samsung used to be known for making the best mobile processors in the world. Back in the days of the Hummingbird and the original Exynos 4, Samsung was unbeatable, and frankly, Qualcomm had nothing good to offer. Things are very different today, with Qualcomm chips performing admirably and Samsung chips disappearing from the US market.

Even though Exynos chips have not been in the news lately, it doesn’t mean that Samsung isn’t working on something special. The Exynos 5433 showed up on AnTuTu benchmarks recently and it beat Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805 by a considerable margin. For pre-production hardware and software, the Exynos performed really well. However, the NVIDIA Tegra K1 still beat it, because NVIDIA chips always bench really well.

Benchmarks mean very little in terms of day to day usage. Old Snapdragon chips benched fairly well, but were laggy and overall unpleasant in day-to-day use. Though the new Exynos 5433 benches well, we’ll have to use it to see if it’s that good. And sadly, we may never get to. Qualcomm’s monopoly on the US market isn’t fun.
