Samsung recently announced the Samsung Galaxy Book S, a 13-inch Qualcomm-powered Always Connected PC. To be more specific, it’s powered by Snapdragon 8cx processor, the processor that Qualcomm claimed would beat Intel i5 chip.
Recent Geekbench score of the Samsung Galaxy Book S, however, suggests that Snapdragon’s latest processor for Windows PCs is not remotely close to the performance and power of the Intel i5 chip.
The Snapdragon 8cx-powered Galaxy Book S managed a multiple-core score of 11134 and a single-core score of 3311 — way too low compared to the i5-powered laptops. If you want the comparison, Microsoft’s Surface Laptop 2 i5 model usually gets a multiple-core score of roughly 13000 and a single-core score of 4000.
The SD 8cx performance is also not par with the latest Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, but beat the SD 855, which has a multiple core score of somewhere around 10,469, quite comfortably.
The Geekbench score of the Galaxy Book S, however, is still impressive and while it couldn’t beat the performance of the i5, at least not on paper, the scores are impressive, and things will only get better from here.
