    Both chipset versions of the Samsung Galaxy S7 have been tested, and we have some benchmark results to share with you comparing them. Just in case you missed it, Samsung is back to its usual M.O. of using two different primary chipsets for their latest flagship in different markets globally.

    In one version of the Galaxy S7 (and S7 Edge) Samsung uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset. This is the one that is found in the United States and a few other markets. The other version uses Samsung's own Exynos 8890 chipset. This version is bound for various international and Asian markets.

    The Galaxy S6 series was the only time Samsung deviated from that plan. For that flagship series they only used their own Exynos processors because they were unhappy with the thermal performance of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810.

    Now that Qualcomm's latest CPU SoC is back to the highest quality standard that Samsung prefers, they can once again offer two varieties to help ease tension on their own chipset manufacturing division.

    Here's a quick comparison of the two latest chipsets in the Galaxy S7 series. As you can see in the above graphic, the Snapdragon 820 ekes out an overall victory against the Exynos 8890. Despite that, there are several instances in which the 8890 actually bests the 820. Ultimately, the main takeaway is that the two chipsets are roughly equivalent, and both are scorchingly fast!

    Regardless of which version of the Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge you get (in your respective global marketing area) you should be pleased with the performance.
