Exynos 8895 (+Mali-G71MP20) vs Exynos 8890 (+Mali-T880MP12) vs Exynos 7420 (+Mali-T760MP8) – performance, benchmarks and temperatures

Today, it is time to take a closer look at three popular mobile processors developed by Samsung – we are talking about Exynos 8895, Exynos 8890 and Exynos 7420. The top models of the South Korean tech giant are powered namely by these chips. And so, our comparison will be made with the help of the smartphones Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S6. It is in the sections below, that we will share information about each of the chips, compare their benchmark results, and finally conclude with surface overheating tests.

We are starting off with Exynos 8895, which can be found in the latest Samsung Galaxy S8. This is the first mobile processor manufactured through a 10nm FinFET technological process which reduces energy consumption and increases performance respectively. It features 8 cores – four Cortex-A53 cores are running at clock speeds of up to 1.7GHz and four Samsung M1 at up to 2.3 GHz. Moreover, the mobile processor boasts LTE Cat 16 connectivity which will ensure download speeds of up to 1024Mbps and upload speeds of up to 150Mbps, up to 28MP front and rear cameras, 4K screens and 4K video recording at 120 fps. The chip also supports dual cameras thanks to the two mini processors for image processing. In addition, the new Mali-G71 GPU takes care of the graphics performance and its 20 cores ensure up to 60% higher performance when compared to its predecessor.

Moving on to Exynos 8890, which is the present 64-bit chip in last year’s Samsung Galaxy S7. The mobile processor is manufactured through a “Second generation” 14nm FinFET technological process and features four Cortex-A53 cores running at 1.59GHz, as well as another four considerably more powerful Exynos M1 cores with a clock speed of up to 2.6GHz. The specs sheet of Exynos 8890 is complemented by the support of LTE Cat 12/13 which means that download speeds reach 600Mbps (Cat 12), while the upload speeds – up to 150Mbps (Cat 13). Additionally, the mobile chip integrates the Mali-T880MP12 GPU.

And finally – Exynos 7420, which can be found in Samsung Galaxy S6. This the first mobile processor which uses a 14-nm-FinFET-SoC LPE process, available in a smartphone. The chip features four Cortex-A53 cores working at 1.5 GHz and four 2.1GHz Cortex-A57 cores. What’s more, it supports LTE Cat 16 connectivity which will ensure download speeds of up to 450Mbps and upload speeds of up to 50Mbps. The available GPU here is Mali-T760MP8.

Benchmark results

In order to check the computing, as well as graphics power of the three mobile processors, we conducted several benchmarks the results of which you can see in the table below.

Benchmarks Exynos 8895 Exynos 8890 Exynos 7420
Geekbench 3 (Multi-Core) 5978 5391 4604
Vellamo 3 Metal 3352 3472 2678
GFXBench 2.7 T-Rex (offscreen) 121 83 59
GFXBench 3 Manhattan (offscreen) 63 40 26
GFXBench 3.1 Manhattan (offscreen) 42 29  
3D Mark Ice Unlimited 29108 29162 21662

External temperatures

Apart from performance, we also tested the three chips for potential overheating issues after several hours of extended 3D gaming with the help of the Epic Citadel app. Immediately after this, we measured the temperatures in three sections of the smartphone’s back taking into account only the highest values. In all three cases, the temperature didn’t reach particularly worrying values but in Samsung Galaxy S7 the results were slightly lower compared to the other two flagships. The photos below display the registered temperatures in the three sections of each smartphone’s back.
