Exynos 2100 powered Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra shows up on Geekbench
There appear to be quite a few Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra units out and about in the wild. The smartphone made two appearances on Geekbench within six minutes of each other. Each listing paints an entirely different picture of the Exynos 2100 SoC that is set to power it. Although Geekbench isn't indicative of how a smartphone will perform in the real world, it does give is a decent idea about how it will fare under load.
The first Geekbench listing comes via Twitter leaker Abhishek Yadav. Here, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra manages to get a single and multi-core score of 828 and 2,897, respectively. It is quite underwhelming, considering that Exynos 2100 managed to score a lot higher in earlier tests. This could be due to the device running on battery saver mode too.
However, the next Geekbench listing looks a lot better. Discovered by another Twitter leaker Mukul Sharma, it tells us that the Exynos 2100-powered Galaxy S21 Ultra scored 1,006 and 3,059 in the single and multi-core score respectively. To put things in perspective, the Snapdragon 888-powered Galaxy S21 isn't too far off with scores of 1,075 and 2,961.
Raw performance aside, the Exynos 2100 is going to be a lot more efficient compared to its predecessor. Battery efficiency and thermals have always plagued Samsung's silicon, presumably due to its Mongoose CPU cores. Early tests indicate that things are looking bright for Samsung on the GPU side of things too, but there isn't enough data out there yet to draw a meaningful conclusion.
