Another chipset in 600 series i.e., Snapdragon 636, it has also seen many brand’s phones. Now, it’s time to see the chipset battle of Exynos 7904 Vs snapdragon 636 Vs 660 and trying to find out which has better camera, display, CPU & GPU and RAM & storage and connectivity options. Let’s war begin.
Comparison Exynos 7904 Vs snapdragon 636 Vs 660 on the basis of CPU & GPU
CPU: Initially we talk about Samsung Exynos 7904 processor; it is built on 14NM FinFet 64-bit process which has octa-cores CPU. It has 2 Cortex-A73 cores and 6 Cortex-A53 cores with clocked speed of 1.8GHz and 1.6GHz respectively. On other hand Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC (System-On-Chip) is octa-core 64-bit processor with 14NM process. It has 8 Kryo 260 cores clocked up to 2.2GHz which means it has 4 Cortex-A73 cores and 4 Cortex-A53 cores while Snapdragon 636 has 8 Kryo 260 cores clocked at up to 1.8GHz. It has also 4 Cortex-A73 cores and 4 Cortex-A53 cores. We are seeing that, all three chipset has same 14NM process, but Exynos 7904 has only 2 Cortex-A73 cores on comparison snapdragon 636 and 660 which has 4 Cortex-A73 cores. So, Qualcomm chipsets in 600-series is winner.
GPU: Samsung Exynos 7904 has Mali-G71 MP2 GPU while Snapdragon 660 has Adreno 512 GPU. Report says, Adreno 512 is more powerful than Mali-G71 MP2 GPU. On other hand, Snapdragon 636 has Adreno 509 GPU. So, SD 660 has better GPU features than SD 636 and Exynos 7904 Chipset. If you are PUBG or FortNight game users, then you already know the importance of graphics and you want powerful GPU which help you to play your favorite games smoothly. In this case, Snapdragon 660 is winner because it has one of most powerful Adreno 512 GPU.
Compare Exynos 7904 Vs snapdragon 636 Vs Snapdragon 660: Camera, Display and RAM
Camera: Samsung Exynos 7904 supports 32MP single camera and also support for triple camera setup. Company has introduced third camera for Ultra Wide Shots and Panoramas. On other hand, Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 can support 25MP single camera and 16MP+16MP dual cameras while SD 636 supports up to 24MP single camera and 16MP+16MP dual camera. Interestingly, all three chipset have EIS options.
Display: When we talk about display support, Exynos 7904 can support FHD+ display with screen resolution 2400X1080 pixels and 20:9 aspect ratios while Snapdragon 636 support FHD+ display with 2160X1080 pixels resolution and aspect ratio 18:9. On other hand, Snapdragon 660 also support for FHD+ display. Interestingly, all three chipset support 4Kexternal displays. In this case, the battle is tie.
RAM: Exynos 7904 supports LPDDR4X RAM and EMMC5.1 based storage while Snapdragon 660 can also support dual LPDDR4X RAM up to 8GB and EMMC 5.1 & UF 2.1 based storage. On other hand, Snapdragon 636 supports dual LPDDR4X RAM up to 8GB. Here, we are seeing that all three chipset is supporting LPDDR4X RAM. So again, war between these chipset is tie.
Exynos 7904 Vs snapdragon 636 Vs 660 comparison on the basis of connectivity options
Samsung Exynos 7904 and Snapdragon 636 both have the same connectivity options including Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth, FM radio and GPS. Exynos 7904 has LTE Cat-12 MODEM while Snapdragon 636 has X12LTE MODEM. On other hand, Snapdragon 660 (SD 660) has dual Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, FM radio, X12 MODED which uses LTE Cat-12 with download speed up to 600Mbps and Cat 13 with 150Mbps upload speed. So, we can say that Snapdragon 660 SoC has best connectivity options as compare to Exyos 7904 and SD 636 chipsets.
On comparison Exynos 7904 Vs snapdragon 636 Vs 660, we have seen that Snapdragon 660 & 636 both chipset have 4 Cortex-A73 cores while Exynos 7904 has only 2 Cortex-A73 cores. So, SD 660 & 636 chipset based phone will be more powerful in terms of CPU performance. On other hand, Snapdragon 660 and 636 have Adreno 512 & Adreno 509 respectively. So, Exynos 7904 again loose the battle in terms of GPU features. Overall, we can say that Qualcomm 600-series of SoC are winner in Exynos 7904 Vs snapdragon 636 Vs Snapdragon 660, Samsung Exynos 7904 chipset war. What do you think?
