We have seen a steady stream of Samsung Galaxy SIV performance benchmarks since it was released. All of the performance benchmarks have been performed with the US version.
The US/Canadian version of the Samsung Galaxy SIV will come equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor. The global version will come with the gargantuan Samsung Exynos 5 Octa (8 core) processor. We have been wondering how this Samsung processor would compare to the Qualcomm and now we know. SamMobile has performed the benchmark we have all been waiting for and it seems the Exynos 5 is significantly faster.
The US version scored a respectable 23,607 in AnTutu whereas the Exynos 5 based international version scored a scorching 28,108 (using the 1.9GHz Exynos 5). The Asian variant is expected to be even faster.
Some may be wondering why the US/Canadian version comes with the Snapdragon and not the Exynos 5 octa.
No one has a definite answer but many speculate Samsung can't manufacture enough Exynos 5s to meet the US demand (the Snapdragon was their fallback plan).
