How is the single-core score so much higher for the Exynos but less for the multi-core score? Its 4 efficiency cores have higher speeds than the Snapdragon's 4 efficiency cores (or whatever you call them, the lower clock speed cores). Also, the Exynos has a larger L3 cache, so what gives? The multi-core score should be higher than you'd think.

Because Exynos 9810 uses a frequency policy similar to Intel's Turbo Boost. On single core, the M3 Cores will burst to 2704MHz as long as needed, but as soon as the load becomes multi-threaded, it drops all the way down to 1794MHz. And at 1794MHz, Exynos 9810 is pretty much equal to Snapdragon 845.

Why is the cpu score of the exynos only 2 points better but single core is 60% better and multi core is 15% better?

Hi. This is because Snapdragon 845 has better AnTuTu and GPU performance.

Root, Snapdragon 845 has a lower AnTuTu score. Only the GPU score is higher but the overall AnTuTu score of Exynos is %3 higher. Also, the 3DMark Wild Life Performance of Exynos is %58 higher too.

user, Snapdragon 845's Adreno 630 is far better in OpenGL ES workloads. Wildlife relies on Vulkan, and Qualcomm drivers for A630 are lackluster for that.
