As you know, Samsung uses two different processor variants in the Galaxy S and Note family in a way that we cannot understand for a long time. The same policy has been implemented in the Galaxy S21 family. The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is sold with the Snapdragon 888 chipset in some countries, while in some countries it is sold with the Samsung-signed Exynos 2100 chipset. As such, both processors must perform similarly in order not to qualify. However, it seems Samsung has not been able to strike that balance again.



There is a difference in Geekbench and AnTuTu!

Tests show that there are visible differences between the Exynos 2100 and the Snapdragon 888. Our first test is Geekbench. The Snapdragon 888 chipset version of the Galaxy S21 Ultra gets 1098 points from the single core section of the test and 3363 points from the multi-core section. On the Exynos 2100 side, it manages to get 1198 points from a single core and 3620 points from a multi-core. As you can see, there is a noticeable difference in multi-core between the two processors. Exynos 2100 seems faster.

In the 3DMark test, the Snapdragon 888 chipset scores 7895 points, while the Exynos 2100 scores 7761 points. It’s obvious that Samsung has been failing on the GPU side for a long time. This is reflected in the scores and Snapdragon 888 is the winner.

In the AnTuTu performance test, the Galaxy S21 Ultra with Snapdragon 888 gets 701,642 points. The Exynos 2100 version fails and gets 644,316 points. The reason why the difference in AnTuTu is so wide at once is probably due to the performance of the graphics unit of the Exynos 2100.

In the application and game opening test, Snapdragon 888 completes the test about 10 seconds earlier than its competitor. Yes, the differences in performance tests are noticed up to 10 seconds in daily use. However, Samsung still needs to offer an equal experience so that both variants do not qualify.


Snapdragon 888 cried in battery test

Now let’s come to the battery test, where the tail of the calf is broken. The charge of the Galaxy S21 Ultra powered by Snapdragon 888 can withstand the test for exactly 199 minutes. The Exynos 2100 version makes a big difference, lasting 226 minutes. From these results, we can clearly say that the battery of the Exynos 2100 versions has gone more.

Performance can really be a factor to some extent. However, this difference in the battery is not acceptable. The Samsung front either really needs to offer equal performance on both processors or switch to the single processor variant. This year, Samsung signed a deal with AMD and will power the GPU of Exynos chipsets in the coming years. In the flagships to be introduced in 2022, the difference may be in favor of Exynos, especially on the graphics unit side.
