Alleged Exynos 1000 Geekbench score surfaces online; Samsung's upcoming SoC trades blows with Apple's A13 Bionic
Alleged benchmark scores belonging to the Exynos 1000 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 have made an appearance online. They come shortly after the Apple A14 Bionic made an appearance on AnTuTu and fell short against the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. However, it is worth noting that AnTuTu uses OpenGL for its graphics test on Android and Metal on Apple devices, so a direct comparison between the two scores doesn't paint the complete picture about the chips' hardware performance.
Geekbench, on the other hand, gives us a better idea about how each chip will perform. Separate users from Korean forums Clien.net (via Reddit) claim to have stumbled upon the Geekbench score of each chip. The Exynos 1000 nets a single-core score of 1302 and a multi-core score of 4250, which is significantly better than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875's single-core score of 1159 and multi-core score of 4090.
To put things in perspective, the A13 Bionic-powered Apple iPhone 11 Pro currently sits on top of the Geekbench charts with a single-core score of 1327 and a multi-core score of 3369. The Exynos 1000 is possibly using a modified version of ARM's Cortex-X1 super core, which essentially confirms an earlier leak, which stated that it would use a 1+3+4 configuration.
If these alleged numbers are correct, it means that the Exynos 1000 will be one of the few chips that can perform on par with Apple silicon. It'll be interesting to see how it fares against the newly-released A14 Bionic, too. Bear in mind that these numbers are little more than leaks and should be treated as such, with a healthy dose of skepticism. Both the Exynos 1000 and Snapdragon 875 won't hit the shelves until 2021, so there's no way to tell if these results are real.
