While static benchmarks obviously don't necessarily translate into a better experience, and most smartphones have excellent performance nowadays, it can still be useful to check out benchmarks to see how far the tech has evolved. A more recent Geekbench benchmark shows that the new Exynos 7420 from Samsung absolutely dominates its competitors in most of the multi-core benchmarks.
As you can see from the screen-cap above, the chipset found in the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge scored over 500 points more than the newest competitor from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 810. In fact, the chip is 50% faster than the Apple A8 chip found in the iPhone 6/6 Plus. Of course, multi-core doesn't tell the whole story, and if you check out the other benchmarks, and change them to single-core, you find the Apple A8 is a bit faster than the Exynos chip.
Also in the single-core benchmark, the NVIDIA Tegra K1(not the newer X1), scores higher than both. Either way, it just goes to show that Samsung is continually pushing the envelope. We would have been surprised if the Galaxy S6 wasn't a great performer considering it uses Sammy's new 14nm process for the chip along with 3GB of the faster LPDDR4 RAM.
