Samsung Exynos 8890 (+Mali-T880) vs Exynos 7420 (Mali-T760) – tech specs and CPU/GPU benchmark results

ex1
Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are already in our hands and one of the first things we did is putting them against some benchmark tests. The new flagships are equipped with Exynos 8890 and it’s interesting to see how it fares versus its predecessor – Exynos 7420. Stay tuned for “vs Snapdragon 820” comparison but until then let’s focus on the Exynos line and check what’s new in terms of computing and graphics power.
