Guess who just showed up at Geekbench and blew all benchmarks out of the water? Sporting model number SM-G950U, it’s none other than the Galaxy S8. For what it’s worth, Geekbench has Galaxy S7 topping the benchmarks chart — no Mate 9 in sight though, neither LG G6, yet — scoring 1786 points in Single Core test, while 5210 in Multi Core test.
Now the upcoming Galaxy S8 can kiss the S7 goodbye at the top with a mind boggling multi-core score of 6011 and single-core score of 1916. Before you counter with ‘Well, numbers don’t relate to real world performance’, let me tell you that this is the recently announced Snapdragon 835 processor we’re talking about here.
We had earlier seen the Galaxy S8 Plus leak out over at the Geekbench too, and it donned the same processor too, clocked at same rate of 1.90GHz. Qualcomm’s official doc on SD835 chipset has it that its CPU can be clocked at up to 2.45GHz, so there is till some performance boost the Galaxy S8 could receive if Samsung engineers are able to harness full power of the SD835 chip.
