How does Exynos work in games? Please test and post the results and see how it compares to snapdragon. I think snapdragon is the winner.

Hi, I request the admin to test every game they test for 1-hour minimum An especially heavy game like genshin, yup genshin is the benchmark for mobile chips And not just opening or tutorial levels, because once 2 other maps are unlocked the phone is pretty much dead, ( imagine 2x times map of Skyrim)

Absolutely Snapdragon has better GPU performance as always, even if benchmarks show slightly worse score but, this time 888 seems a little hot in daily useage and base on that it didn't give me a good impression on first glance. So any report about Exynos thermal performance?If 2100 shows better cooling I guess that's more significant instead of little graphics gap.

Samsung, No bro check again, SD888 you is far better than E2100 gpu plus E2100 gets hot faster so it performance decrease alot, E2100 Is little better than SD888, the cpu gap is very small compared to the gpu gap between both chips, so yeah snapdragon wins this year, hard luck for exynos.

Fadi, A14 is stronger than both of them. And talking about exynos they want just profit and they don't care how their products works. SD888 is better than e2100 and better quality is on A,SD and Kirin. I for samsung quality will say its like MT dimensity series

Accept the truth 19 September 2022 14:16
Hiiii, Well just want profit sounds very apple of you 😂. Yes, Sd 888 is better. It's better than A14 in GPU and in real life as well it plays games better due to better gpu! Exynos 2100 is not great in comparison to Sd888, I agree. I am a Samsung fan and just want Samsung to switch to sd at least for their higher-end devices. But if you are not a heavy gamer, it's just fine. The other stuff on the phone is great. There are a lot of options available for gamers, go for that instead. There are phones with Sd888 with a better camera than Samsung's non ultra version. But with the Ultra version, Samsung just kills as an all-rounder.

GEEK 21 January 2021 17:03
Well, talking about the fact am not a fanboy but..!! I've used a lot of sdm variant phones and exynos too, fairly both chips are good, but i've seen that sdm can clearly beat exynos in terms of perfomance and optimizations specially so, sdm has the uper hand in custom roms and furthur supports. As heating issue is a headache both sdm and exynos have the issue (exynos is a bit more worse in terms of thermal throttling). Guys sdm is a clear winner but personally i don't prefer these, i like (mtk's new gen and kirin is great no throttling btw) mtk offer less price and great performance (AMD vs INTEL) :) so i'll go with amd and mtk rather then sdm or exynos.

Accept the truth 19 September 2022 14:21
Yes, I think they can be used to reduce the price. Especially in 2022. Asus recently launched 6D Ultimate. Great move I guess! Sd needs some stiff competition so that Android chipsets can finally create a difference that is between Macs and amd/Intel laptops currently! I am honestly surprised how mtk did so well in starting itself in the flagship chipset market. I haven't used Kirin yet🥲.

It's true SD888 wins for gaming but for camera both chips are nearly equal, SD888 somehow gives more details when zooming in but E2100 has a bit more texture and sometimes the opposite happens so both are equal when it comes to the camera.

Seems like the Exynos is a tiny bit better in CPU but Snapdragon has a bigger gap with its GPU advantage. Either way, they're so closely matched that nobody using them will be able to tell the difference. The only thing that will matter between them now is battery life, and as far as I can tell there's no real-world tests yet - just speculation.

Meraj, It is not all about core frequency, the instructions per clock is lower on the dimensity 1200 cuz it uses cores made for 7 nm but fabricated in 5nm. While sd 888 and exynos 2100 uses true 5nm cores

I still don't think the exynos 2100 has been properly tested yet. These are basically the same chipset with different gpu's and it seems like snapdragon 888 heats up more than exynos 2100 so it doesnt make much sense that battery is supposedly better in the snapdragon 888
+21 Reply
SSR 17 January 2021 08:26
That is what I have heard. But I don't know if those results were thorough or tested with single iteration or multiple. Also, another thing is if the background apps were cleared and both phones were in ideal situation or not. Ambient temperature was constant though. There are lot of questions. Let's see. But, the good thing is that Exynos 2100 is now almost identical to the SD counterpart. Therefore, people should not feel bad.

Exynos hasn't actually beaten snapdragon since s8 (although exynos 8895 performed the same in real-life as the snapdragon 835) exynos 9810 and 9820 performed slightly worse than the snapdragon variants but the exynos 990 performed worse in relation the snapdragon 865 and 865+ than previous generations although I have seen people say the exynos performed essentially on par with the snapdragon

Guest User #433, I owned the s8 on exynos, it was horrible, I would need to run my phone under the tap after a game of pubg , at smooth high settings which is pretty basic , it didn't even support smooth extreme which is like a minimum requirement to play the game. The Snapdragon variant of the s8 was so much better , I have tested it against one of my American friends . His phone still runs perfectly fine, he has no issues with pubg compared to me . Exynos has always been worse since the s8 was released , I really hope Samsung got the performance as good as the Snapdragon in terms of GPU and and efficiency because those are where it's always lacked .
