4198 (multi score)
Exynos 2100 vs A14 Bionic: CPU
First is the CPU arrangement. The Exynos 2100 features the 1+3+4 CPU architecture and has built in 5G modem. Unlike the A14 Bionic with an add-on 5G modem. Which explains why the iPhone 12 series drain battery faster. So when it comes to battery management, the Exynos 2100 is better.
On geekbench platform, the Apple A14 Bionic multi-core scored 4198 points and the single core got 1583 points. On the other hand, the Exynos 2100 got 3475 multi core points and single core was 1088 points. The Apple A14 Bionic is faster.
Exynos 2100 vs A14 Bionic: GPU
Both chipsets feature new GPUs that bring significant upgrades over their predecessors. The Mali-G78 GPU performs better on Kirin 9000 because it has 24 cores. But in the Exynos 2100, the ARM Mali-G78 GPU performs less. Reason because, Samsung only tapped into 14 cores which is not enough to fight the “New Apple Custom Quad core GPU.
However, in the AI category, the Exynos 2100 is the winner. Its triple core NPU boasts up to 26 trillion operations per second (TOPS). While the Apple Neutral engine only delivers up to 11 trillion operation per second.
ISP, Media & Display
The Image signal processor (ISP) in the Exynos 2100 boasts of some impressive features too. It supports 200MP camera and can stream up to 4 cameras concurrently.
It also supports for 4K video recording at 120 FPS and 8K video recording at 60 FPS. The Exynos 2100 is also the first in the tech industry to have support for the AVI decorder for 8K. So when it comes to display, media and camera versatility, the Exynos 2100 has an edge over the A14 Bionic chip.
The overall take home point from this comparison is that Samsung has done well with its new flagship Chipset. And its fans should be pleased. Apple like we all know has been dominanting this Chipset league for a very long time now. And it’s very good to finally see Samsung Exynos stepping up to challenge Apple chip for its Numero Uno position. Great things are yet to come, tough competition is good for the tech industry’s growth.
