It is common knowledge in the mobile industry that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 is one of the most sought after mobile SoCs in the market today. However, Samsung’s own Exynos brand of chipsets might not be far off according to this new AnTuTu listing. In fact, the company’s latest Exynos 5433 chipset is shown to be scoring better than the Qualcomm offering.
This chipset from Samsung could be used in the Galaxy Note 4 later this year and any subsequent flagship that the company looks to launch later in the year. The first benchmark result shows the NVIDIA Tegra K1 to be faring even better than the Exynos 5433, but that’s only because the chipset was tested on a device featuring a 1080p display while the Exynos 5433 and the Snapdragon 805 were tested on 2K resolution displays.
There’s no clarification on the specifics of the Exynos 5433 chip as of yet, but it’s clear that we’ll see a lot of it in the coming months. Samsung uses its homegrown chips for non-LTE markets, but it might not be long before it ditches Qualcomm altogether and uses Exynos chips across the board. It might prove to be a slow and gradual process though, given the resources and manufacturing prowess of Qualcomm.
