This is an absurdist comparison, but if the exynos isnt yielding over 1.2ghz on samsung's processes.. it doesn't matter that its more clock efficient, it still will lose out on absolute power..
Though I can't seem to find any benchmarks on Anandtech with Exynos vs dual-core Snapdragon..
I remember that anandtech benchmark too. But Exynos was not there as far as I recall. They were criticized for comparing 1.5Ghz dual snapdragon in qualcomm test device against 1.0Ghz Tegra2, OMAP4 phones (Atrix, G2X, LG 3D) and claiming snapdragon is faster.
I think Exynos is still holding the overall performance edge at the same clock based on other benchmarks I saw, but 1.5Ghz dual snapdragon is certainly strong performer too. It's working productivity tasks very well.
