Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus Benchmark Leak With Snapdragon 835 Boasts Single/Multi Core Scores Of 1929 & 6084


Taking a look at the amount of leaks which have surfaced so far, we're not sure if Samsung should bother launching the Galaxy S8. The device has leaked in every possible interpretation of the word. From images, to specifications and videos, every aspect of the device is with us in one form or the other. Now, you can add a benchmark posting to the list as well. The Samsung Galaxy S8 has allegedly surfaced on benchmark website, GeekBench. Take a look below for more.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus Surfaces On GeekBench Running The Snapdragon 835 And 4GB RAM

It's been a good couple of days for leaks. The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus are with us in their final form. True to fact, the leaks corroborate everything that has surfaced for the devices so far. We've got a minimal bezel display, no front buttons, an all new Virtual Assistant button and an improved design. This year's Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will mark a lot of improvements over their predecessors, of which design won't be the most subtle.

Today's leak is about performance. The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is now the feature of benchmark database, GeekBench. The device runs the Snapdragon 835 and features 4GB of RAM. Given that the processor's eight cores are clocked at 1.9GHz, we wouldn't take performance figures shown in the leak as true facts.

The scores for the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus represent a mixed picture when compared against its direct predecessor. The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, running the Snapdragon 820 scores 2322 in single core and 5443 in multi core results. The alleged S8 Plus, on the other hand, scores 1929 in single and 6084 in multi core tests. It's an interesting result, as the device falls behind in single core scores while powering ahead in multiple. As the Snapdragon 835 has four more cores compared to its predecessor, the multi core result is a no brainer.

As for the single core results, the frequency of the processor will come in play here. 1.9GHz isn't the full potential for the Snapdragon 835, as only the lower performing core cluster is recorded at 1.9GHz. Qualcomm also intends for 80% of the processor's workload to pass through these cores and improve the processor's power efficiency. To sum it up, these results only provide a small glance at what can be expected from the processor and the device. Thoughts?
