Exynos 1480 Delivers Big Performance Gains in Early Benchmarks, 22% Higher CPU and 31% Better GPU Scores

The A54 was Samsung’s second best-selling smartphone behind the A14 in 2023, and this year, the Galaxy A55 will aim to follow a similar trajectory, more or less. This particular mid-range device will come with many improvements over its predecessor.

A55’s Exynos 1480 is a Huge Step Up from its Predecessor, the Exynos 1380

One of the major changes made to the A55 is the SoC, which is the Exynos 1480. This chipset is a huge step up from its predecessor, the Exynos 1380. In comparison to Qualcomm, it delivers performance equivalent to that of the Snapdragon 778G, a chipset that is now three years old.

This time, the Exynos 1480 has been captured in early benchmarks, and the performance metrics have shown significant improvements. Manufactured on Samsung’s 4nm (4LPP) process node, the SoC features an octa-core configuration, comprising 4x Cortex-A78 cores clocked at 2.75GHz and another 4x Cortex-A55 cores operating at 2.05GHz.

Benchmarks & Comparison

YouTuber MadCoby recently put the Samsung Galaxy A55 through its paces, and the new SoC delivered promising results. On Geekbench 6, the phone achieved a single-core score of 1,161 and a multi-core score of 3,398. These figures represent an impressive 18.5% and 22.7% improvement, respectively, compared to previous benchmarks.

On AnTuTu, the A55 scored a decent 713,993 points, showcasing a 20.4% increase in benchmark scores. For the CPU’s thermal efficiency, it was tested through a 15-minute CPU throttling test, where it maintained a relatively stable temperature without any sudden drops.
