Samsung pushes its Exynos processors in some of its budget phones. Even certain flagships in some markets have the Exynos chipsets. The issue here is that these chips always fall short of their Snapdragon counterparts. Both graphical and CPU performances suffer due to this. Now, we have seen that Exynos chips are getting better but would you be able to opt for either one in the coming years? This tweet from Ice Universe claims that the gap may be narrowing in the coming year, with the next iteration.
It is expected that next year's Exynos1000 will still lose to Snapdragon 875, whether it is CPU or GPU, but it is certain that the gap is narrowing. Samsung adopt AMD GPU in 2022, but at the same time Qualcomm will also significantly update GPU to Adreno7, so everything is possi

Now, the thing with Exynos chips is that their power to performance ratios have often suffered. Not to mention, the overheating issues and thermal throttling is a big concern. Meanwhile, the counterpart Snapdragon processors are much better. Now, as the tweet suggests, the company may be pushing its boundaries. The tweets say that Exynos 1000 would be very close to the Snapdragon 875, from next year but it would still fall a bit short. This would be in all departments of the performance side.
But this is a good sign that Samsung is pushing its boundaries. It may have something to do with the fact that Samsung may be opting for AMD exclusive GPUs in the future. This would likely complement the updated Exynos chips. The graphical power would be catered for. This would certainly have it head to head with Snapdragon variants. Now, the question is, would Samsung be able to manage the heat and the thermal throttling issues. This is the thing that breaks the deal since, in gaming sessions and other related workflows, the phones definitely suffer.
