Popular Weibo tech analyst Bing Yuzhou isn’t afraid to toss around silicon and yap about it like the rest of their kind. AnTuTu here, HiSilicon over there, CPU, GPU, multi-thread, multi-core… just a whole bunch of numbers get put out there.
But since we’re in Galaxy S8 territory and looking towards what a rumored Exynos 8895 might have, we find ourselves without any evidence at this point, so take this news lightly.
Bing posted that the 8895 has a top speed potential of 3.0GHz and can score a 2,301 in an unnamed single-thread test (maybe Geekbench) and 7,019 in a multi-thread test. The optimized architecture can tamp power consumption to below 5 watts and, yet, improve dual-camera image processing by 70 to 80 percent.
What this all means for the Galaxy S8, its performance and its dual-camera module, again, we don’t have a clue. Even then, Samsung will likely keep splitting chipsets between different territories for the S8 — some places getting said 8895 while others maybe getting the Snapdragon 821.
We’d like to get closer to real world revelations before we’ll take up evidence — those revelations could come sooner rather than later.
