Qualcomm has formally exhibited benchmarks for its new lead Snapdragon 888 processor, which is required to control best in class Android gadgets in 2021. The benchmarks, while good, show that the Snapdragon 888 falls behind Apple’s A13 and A14 processors.
As first definite by AnandTech, the Snapdragon 888 chip procured a solitary center score of 1,135 and a multi-center score of 3,794 in Geekbench 5 testing. The iPhone 12 Pro, which is controlled by Apple’s A14 chip, scored 1,603 in single-center testing and 4,187 in multi-center testing.
With respect to the iPhone 11 Pro controlled by the A13 chip, it scored 1,331 in single-center testing and 3,366 in multi-center testing. In this manner, the Snapdragon 888 is really ready to best the A13 in multi-center testing, yet marginally.
At last, Qualcomm likewise shared benchmark results from designs testing utilizing GFXBench. Here, the Snapdragon 888 recorded 86 edges for each second, which places it behind the iPhone SE, iPhone 11 Series, and iPhone 12 arrangement. That being stated, Anandtech noticed that the Snapdragon 888 could prove to be the best contingent upon power utilization:
While the Snapdragon 888 doesn’t look like it’ll match the peak performance scores of the A13 or A14 SoCs used in Apple’s iPhones, sustained performance will depend quite a bit on the power consumption of the chip. If this lands in at between 4 and 4.5W, then the majority of flagship Android phones in 2021 will likely be able to sustain this peak performance figure and allow Qualcomm to regain the mobile performance crown from Apple. Otherwise if the chip has to significantly throttle, then 888 will probably fall short of retaking the crown.
These benchmarks are further signs that Apple’s A-arrangement chips are inconceivably incredible in contrast with the remainder of the opposition. It’s especially striking to see the A13 chip actually holding its own contrasted with the lead Android processors.
Another thing to consider, notwithstanding, is that the Snapdragon 888 speaks to a huge improvement over its archetypes. Truth be told, CPU execution has expanded by 25% this year, while GPU execution is up by 35%.
The folks over at Anandtech have more details on the Snapdragon 888.
