While we are still hearing rumours that Samsung will build two chipset variations of its upcoming Galaxy S4 smartphone, one of them has shown up in a benchmark score. Samsung is said to be offering the US based S4 with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, while in Europe the company will use its own Exynos octa-core chipset.
While we are yet to confirm this and will probably have to wait until launch to find out, we are pleased to see the Exynos chipped Galaxy S4 show up on benchmarks. At least we know that version is coming.
Get ready to be blown away because the Samsung Galaxy S4 with the Exynos 5410 processor scored a whopping 24,894 points on Antutu 3.1.2. Let’s break down just what that means; the Galaxy S3, a fine device itself, clocked in on the same benchmark with 15,933 points, so the new Galaxy S4 is vastly superior on the benchmarks than its predecessor. It is also much higher than HTC’s recently launched One flagship, which is a major foe to the Galaxy in the race to be the best Android device.
The Exynos 5410 is some powerhouse, and features a SoC sports the PowerVR SGX544MP mobile graphics processor from Imagination Technologies, the SoC sports processor powers the Galaxy S4′s 4.99-inch full high-definition 1,920 by 1,080 resolution SoLux LCD display that boasts a pixel density of 443 pixels-per-inch.
Below we have laid out the full results of the Galaxy S4′s Antutu test:
Total score: 24,894
CPU integer: 5228
CPU float-point: 5536
2D graphics at 1920×1080: 1621
3D graphics at 1920×1080: 6449
Database IQ: 565
SD card write: 150

However, the recently announced Nvidia Tegra 4 scored an even higher 36,305 on Antutu, a total of 11,411 points higher than the Exynos 5410′s. Of course, benchmark scores can mean nothing in real world usage, but nevertheless we are excited to find out just what the Galaxy S4 can do, and we also can’t wait to get out hands on a Tegra 4 powered device.
