Snapdragon 845 vs Kirin 980 vs Exynos 9810


The Kirin 980 is the world’s first SoC to be based on the new and powerful Cortex-A 76 architecture, which improves a lot on single core performance. And we can see that the Kirin 980 scores higher than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 but is on par with the Exynos 9810. Means the Cortex-A-76 is as good as Samsung’s Mongoose M3? Day-to-day tasks will be a breeze on these phones and so will be gaming, but still moving ahead with the specs these three top of the line processors are based on are given below in the table, along with their single and multi-core performance
