Samsung Galaxy S8: Can The Others Match Its Speed?

Qualcomm recently pitted its Snapdragon 835 reference device against two Snapdragon 821 devices, the Google Pixel XL and OnePlus 3, as well as the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge with Samsung’s Exynos processor and Huawei’s Kirin 960-powered P10, according to a report by Android Police.

In Geekbench and PCMark, the Snapdragon 835 beat the Snapdragon 821 by almost 40 percent in multithreaded tasks whereas, in Geekbench’s single-thread performance, the chip surpassed every other processor by about 10 percent.

The company used two other benchmarking apps, GFCBench GL and 3D Mark and the result of the Snapdragon 835 still turned out impressive, to say the least.

AnTuTu also showed that the 835 was ahead of its competitors while web tests showed that the 835 will be able to handle graphics-heavy pages excellently.

Meanwhile, Google’s Octane test revealed a 40 percent advantage ahead of Samsung’s Exynos processor and 50 percent more than the 821.

It sure looks like the Snapdragon 835 will be Qualcomm’s new best chip and seeing that it will be powering the Samsung Galaxy S8, we can be sure that the device will be the one of the speediest, or even the speediest, device on the market.

Well, it’s time for its rivals to buck up if they are determined to level up to Samsung’s latest and, possibly, greatest.
