The Battle of Galaxy S21′ – Exynos 2100 Lags Behind Snapdragon 888

Since its inception, Samsung’s Exynos chipsets gained a pretty terrible reputation in the silicon industry for being the slowest one out there. It was not much different last year when Exynos 990 lost to Snapdragon 865 in every aspect where Samsung’s Exynos 990 powered Galaxy S20 lagged behind the Snapdragon 865 variant. With Exynos 2100, Samsung is trying to make some amends and get things on par with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888. But is it any different this year, or is it the same story altogether.

Just like every other time, Samsung has launched two variants of its flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S21 – one powered by its in-house chip, the Exynos 2100, while the other one embraces Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888. As we know, the Snapdragon variant is limited to the US and few other select markets. In contrast, the Exynos one has a wider availability, including India.

Now coming to the comparison between these two,  SpeedTestG has conducted benchmarking tests on both the variants of Galaxy S21 Ultra, painting a somewhat old story, but with quite improvements over the last year.

In terms of CPU performance, the Snapdragon 888 powered S21 Ultra leads the chart but with a much less difference compared to last year, while in the mixed test, the Exynos 2100 leads the scoreboard due to its higher clock speed.

As far as GPU is concerned, the benchmarking scores present Snapdragon 888’s Adreno 660 GPU as a clear winner against the Mali-G78 GPU, closing in with not much of a gap between the scores. It seems like the AMD collaboration might get Samsung an edge over Qualcomm in terms of graphics performance.

These numbers do present Snapdragon 888 as a clear winner over the Exynos 2100. But considering the head to head fight between both, Samsung has made some remarkable improvements in the Exynos 2100.
