Exynos 9611 vs Snapdragon 675 – CPU Comparison

Exynos 9611 has an octa-core design and comes with 64 bit octa-core arrangement. It provides four Cortex A73 cores with a maximum clock speed of 2.3 GHz, as well as four Cortex A53 cores with maximum clock speed of 1.7 GHz.

The Exynos 9610 has the same arrangement but 9611 has improved clocked speed.

The architecture of Snapdragon 675 has been upgraded from Kyro 360 to Kyro 460 with the dual-cluster (2+6) octa-core design as in Snapdragon 670.

It’s an octa-core design which has 2x Kryo 460  (based on Cortex A76) cores running @ 2.0GHz and 6 x Kryo 460 (based on Cortex A55) cores running @ 1.7GHz.

The Snapdragon 675 takes advantage of the new Kyro 460 architecture and the Cortex A76 cores, these cores are rare, and only specific to high-end SoCs.

CPU performance of Snapdragon 675 is way more than both Exynos 9611. In terms of power-efficiency, we have Exynos 9611 as the winner because of 10nm process, in terms of raw performance, we have Snapdragon 675 winner.

Exynos 9611 vs Snapdragon 675 – GPU Comparison

Exynos 9611 includes a Mali-G72 MP3 GPU which is responsible for enhancing graphics. This is the same GPU which is present in its predecessor, Exynos 9610, but it has a faster clock speed. Samsung has done some gaming optimizations to improve the overall gaming experience.

The Snapdragon 675 has downgraded GPU from Adreno 615 to Adreno 612 which features 14nm lithography and speed of 850 MHz. However, Qualcomm assured that the Snapdragon 675 performs better than the SD 670 in real-world scenarios.

Looking at the benchmark scores, the performance is still behind SD 710 and SD 670 despite having a higher frequency but an old process. This is the only downside of this processor if we compare it to Snapdragon 670.

If we compare GPUs, Exynos 9611 will have the lowest graphical performance. The GPU of Snapdragon 675 is the winner here because of better GPU and clock speed, along with some incredible gaming optimizations.

Snapdragon 675 vs Exynos 9611 – Camera Comparison

Exynos 9611 has much better camera features which supports 24 MP single-camera resolution (Up to 64 MP) as well as dual-camera 16 +16 MP resolution.

Apart from the 1080p 60fps video recording, it also brings 480fps slow-motion video capturing as well. It also supports triple and quad-camera setup and few AI camera features as well.

Snapdragon 675 has Spectra 250L processor as ISP. This is compatible with dual 16 + 16 MP camera setup, a single 25MP camera, and support for the single 48MP camera sensor with the use of MFNR.

It can also supports the 192 MP single camera sensor. There are other enhanced options as well such as triple-camera support for capturing super-wide images or up to 5x optical zoom, portrait mode, and breakthrough limitless HD slo-mo recording – at up to a dazzling 480 fps.
