The S6 Edge with model number SM-G925W8 has been recently spotted running the 14nm chipset based octa-core Exynos 7420 processor in AnTuTu's multi-stage test that musters a staggering record high score of 60,978 points, reports a recent benchmark report on MyDrivers.

This score is by far the highest ever recorded for a smartphone's CPU and GPU benchmark in history, even as the breakdown of the score clearly suggests that the performance boost comes from improved 3D objects visualisation in contrast to the older Exynos 5433 processor.

The powerful Exynos 7420 octa-core processor is well complemented by an equally capable ARM Mali-T760 GPU and hence the S6 Edge manages to deliver a record-breaking performance across various synthetic tests.

In related news, a recent Geekbench test report from primatelabs clearly indicates that the Galaxy S6 Edge with Exynos 7420 octa-core chipset is probably the best processor configuration with an outstanding single-core score of 1,492 points and 5,077 points in multi-core test.

As Phone Arena reports, this multi-core test score is way higher than any other mobile device available in the market at the moment, including the famed iPad Air 2 that finishes second best at 4,532.

Galaxy S6 Edge reportedly falls short in the single-core performance test only to the famed iPhone 6 lineup, and the Nexus 9 tablet whose core strength is the Tegra K1 processor.

The recent leak of user manuals and support documents for the S6 Edge adds much credence to the veracity of these benchmark reports.

As far as other rumoured specs are concerned, the S6 Edge is likely to feature a 5.1in Super AMOLED display with a native resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels or 576ppi, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 5MP front camera and a 20MP rear camera.
