Exynos 2100 is very hot these days, given how it officially becomes on January 12, 2021 and is supposed to go head to head with Snapdragon 888. This means we will see Galaxy S21 (Exynos) and Galaxy S21 (Snapdragon) fighting. However, unlike this year’s Exynos 990, the Exynos 2100 looks like a big improvement and something that can give Snapdragon 888 a run for its money.
The latest Geekbench 5 score shows the Exynos 2100 Closing on the Snapdragon 888
The advice comes from The ice universe, who shared an image of the Exynos 2100’s Geekbench 5 score. Honestly, all my pessimism about the future chipset slowly disappears after analyzing the scores. You can watch them below.

The chipset scored an impressive 1103 on single-core tests and 3785 on multi-core tests. However, you know that this is not the final test, because the processor is not official yet and the scores may change and in many cases you will get better scores.
Now, how does it compete against Snapdragon 888? Well, he actually beats him in a way and gets very close to him. For starters, a recent Snapdragon 888 benchmark showed that the processor scored 1135 on single-core tests and 3794 on multi-core tests. Such a difference falls within a margin of error and, not to forget, we saw another Snapdragon 888 benchmark that showed the score chip 1075 in single-core and 2916 in multi-core tests. In this case, the Exynos 2100 is definitely more powerful.
At the time of writing, giving a concrete answer will not be easy. However, it is important to know that Samsung’s criticisms of the Exynos 990 make it clear that the company has made some changes to improve the overall performance of the Exynos 2100.
We know for sure that both chips will appear on the Galaxy S21 series when it will be released on January 14, 2021. We will keep you updated as more news will appear.
