    Exynos 5 Dual handily beats Apple’s A6 chip, Intel’s Atom Z2460

    Exynos 5 Dual benchmark scores

    Tofel ran several benchmark suites on the new ARM Chromebook. Here are the benchmarks and the scores:

    SunSpider: 668.5ms (lower is better)
    V8: 3871 (higher is better)
    Octane: 3465 (higher is better)

    Now that we have these scores, let’s compare them to the main competitors of the Exynos 5 Dual chip: the A6 chip in the iPhone 5 and the Atom Z2460 in the Motorola Razr i.

    Exynos 5 Dual (Samsung Chromebook) Apple A6 (Apple iPhone 5) Intel Atom Z2460 (Motorola Razr i) Snapdragon S4 (HTC One X) Tegra 3 (HTC One X)
    SunSpider 668.5 908 1086.6 1608 1737.7
    V8 3871 1533 2209 1507 1162
    Octane 3465 1672 2048 1280 1131
    * The benchmark scores listed above are courtesy of AnandTech.

    As you can see, Samsung’s latest chip handily beats the previous leaders, with the difference being especially visible in the SunSpider test. For some perspective, consider that the iPhone 5 is the first device to complete SunSpider in less than 1000ms. At 668.5, the new Exynos just smashes that record.

    SunSpider, V8, and Octane are all JavaScript tests, so results may vary when using other benchmark suites. Still, it’s impressive to see what Samsung was able to achieve, and we are looking forward to see what the Exynos 5 Dual can do in next year’s Samsung Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3.

    • Mixing and matching benchmarks from different sites is not really feasible as Tofel found even the A9 broke 1000s in Sunspider and he is the only guy on the planet who has found that. Best to wait for someone to do tests under similar conditions at one site alone. I don't remotely believe the title 'handily beats' in either A6 or Z2460 case and proper comparative tests will show that.

        'handily beats', was his words not mine.

        As for the A15, we shall soon see with the Nexus 10 and geekbench...:)

        So, what would you say good numbers over the A6 would be? 10%? 30%? 50%?

    • Apple A6, Exynos if we face-off. 1.3 to 1.7 clock speed difference. My guess would be gate count is pretty even. The big difference seems to be memory bandwidth. At such a high system clock processor spins -- through good memory it stays fed for a speed boost. Apple's A6 targets the iPhone 5. The Exynos does not have a phone target. I would venture it's more a tablet part. Higher clock speed, more power, big device.

        The A15 is slatted to go onto phones, but as you hint at there could be issues in regards to power/die size. This chip is also in googles new tablet, the nexus 10, so we should see more information on performance/battery use over the next few days.
