The Exynos 2100 was recently unveiled by the company which is a flagship processor, Samsung has launched its new S21 series based on this chipset which is equipped with its global version, However, in China and the USA the S21 series is powered by Snapdragon 888 SoC. both are 5nm chipsets, which will be seen in the best smartphone of the year 2021.
Both the Exynos 2100 and Snapdragon 888 also feature ARM CPU cores in the same 1+3+4 arrangement and have built-in 5G modem. both of them perform better than their predecessor, as well as they will reduce battery consumption. you can see the differences between these processors in the comparison table below.

The Snapdragon 888 Chipset has one Kryo 680 Prime (Cortex-X1) core clocked at up to 2.84GHz, three Kryo 680 Gold (Cortex-A78) high-performance cores clocked at 2.42GHz, and four Kryo 680 Silver (Cortex-A55) cores clocked at 1.8GHz.
likewise, the Exynos 2100 chipset includes a single Cortex-X1 core clocked at 2.9GHz, 3 Cortex-A78 cores, and 4 Cortex-A55 cores. But while the Snapdragon 888 has an Adreno 660 graphics chip, the Samsung’s Exynos SoC is paired with Mali-G78 GPU.
both chipset offers 5nm technology and also support LPDDR5 RAM, their ISP (image signal processor) camera resolution of up to 200MP.
In the comparison table above, there is no significant difference between the two chipsets, but in real life there may be some difference in the figure. The best option to illustrate this can be done by comparing Samsung’s s21 Ultra to the Exynos and Snapdragon models. in result, the Snapdragon 888 model of the Galaxy S21 Ultra gets 701672 points on the AnTuTu score, while the Exynos model gets the 644316 points. however, if you compare the GPU term, then here also Snapdragon has more points in it.
even though the difference between both processors are very slender, but Samsung has filled this gap much more than before and has also proved its ability to make good chips. according to the latest leaks and rumors, to make it even better, Samsung is working with AMD (a leading desktop CPU manufacture) to achieve optimum results in the future.
