When the Samsung first introduced their Exynos 7420 processor that features 14nm process, everyone dropped their jaw because of the performance that it provide are too high just like other Qualcomm flagships processor. However, the 7420 isn’t the king now, because a new processor from LG has just born with benchmark scores that blows the Exynos processor out of the water.
The new LG electronics processor is named as Nuclun 2. In a leaked Geekbench benchmark result comparing single threaded and multi threaded performance of the Samsung Galaxy S6 that comes with the Exynos 7420 processor and the LG Nuclun 2, the LG Nuclun 2 comes with way higher single threaded and multi threaded score in comparison with the Samsung processor.
This difference in scores can be largely accounted by the architecture each processor used. The Nuclun 2 comes with 4x 2.1Ghz Cortex A 72 and 4x 1.5Ghz Cortex A-53 core. It runs on 16nm processor instead of 14nm found on the Exynos. However, there is not much information revealed regarding the type of GPU used and when will be make into production line.
We were certainly happy to see the rise of competition in the processor manufacturing instead of the monopoly of Qualcomm and Samsung Exynos chip. It certainly does bring more benefits to the consumer in the long run.
