Galaxy Note 20 Ultra: This benchmark of the Exynos 990 version is a bit depressing

by Jerry

A first benchmark of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra Exynos 990 seems to confirm two fears of fans of the brand: the performance of the Notes will likely be the same as that of the S20 – and the improvements promised by Samsung should not be enough again this year to close the performance gap with the Snapdragon 865 variants.

In Europe and other parts of the world the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra will carry a Samsung-designed Exynos 990 chip, such as the Galaxy S20 launched a few months in advance. However, in China and the United States, the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra are expected to carry a Slightly overclocked Snapdragon 865 processor compared to the S20s offered there under Snapdragon 865.

Note 20 Ultra (Exynos 990): first benchmark without pleasant surprise

Obviously this difference in treatment has been making waves among the brand's regulars for several generations. Especially since year after year the performance of Exynos chips is increasingly behind the performance of equivalent Snapdragon chips. And this is not the only complaint to the Exynos variants.

European users of S20-range smartphones complain of overheating, simpled performance of the GPU during long gaming sessions, and excessive energy consumption when the "High Perfomances" mode is activated. Faced with criticism, Samsung has promised to optimize the Exynos 990 better on the Note 20.

As if to compensate for the lack of new iteration, unlike the American and Chinese variants that go under Snpadragon 865. However, a first benchmark obviously prepares us for a big disappointment. Nothing moves in the numbers. All indications are that the performance of the Note 20 under Exynos 990 will be strictly the same as those of the S20 under Exynos 990.

And there is no evidence of any optimization that would have a positive impact on performance. Of course, this is just a benchmark, so a snapshot – that doesn't necessarily give a very accurate picture of what this smartphone really will be.

But, as you will understand, we already know that the performance gap between the Snapdragon and Exynos variants will be widened, thanks on the one hand, to the switch to 865 on the American and Chinese versions, and on the other hand to keep an Exynos 990 that was already less efficient, at the base, than the Snapdragon 865.

This benchmark seems to confirm that Samsung should not be expected to take anything out of its hat to actually compensate for this performance gap. Which is starting to become less and less understandable, which some will certainly call unacceptable…
