Early Snapdragon 8150 results appear in Geekbench

Peter, 01 November 2018

Out of the blue, the first phone with Snapdragon 8150 was announced (the first foldable phone to boot), but weíve seen little of the chipset so far. Benchmark runs from it started appearing in Geekbench, giving us an early peek at the performance to come (the results appear to be from a reference device rather than the FlexPai).

The 8150 chip should be based on a new generation Kryo cores. Qualcomm is mum on the setup, but rumor has it that itís a 2+2+4 instead of the usual 4+4. The Kirin 980, a competing 7nm chipset thatís already on the market, has a similar three tier design and divides the responsibilities like so: two cores for burst performance, two for sustained speed and four little cores to handle the lighter tasks.

GeekBench 4.1 (multi-core)

Higher is better

  • Apple iPhone XS Max
    11432
  • Snapdragon 8150
    10084
  • Huawei Mate 20 Pro
    9712
  • Samsung Galaxy Note9
    9026
  • Google Pixel 3 XL
    8088

GeekBench 4.1 (single-core)

Higher is better

  • Apple iPhone XS Max
    4777
  • Samsung Galaxy Note9
    3642
  • Huawei Mate 20 Pro
    3291
  • Snapdragon 8150
    3181
  • Google Pixel 3 XL
    2363

Anyway, the results show a solid incremental improvement over the predecessor, the Snapdragon 845. However, they donít leapfrog Huaweiís score and certainly donít topple Apple. The single core performance of the A12 is out of reach.

Again, these are early results and we donít even know if the chipset was running at the final clock speeds. And the best part of a Snapdragon chipset has always been the Adreno GPU, but weíll need scores from a different benchmark to see how that does.

2019 Exynos will trump this. 9810 is already better at single core and slightly worse multi core wise while being on 10nm.

You are definitely right and thanks for pointing that out.

I expected a lot more.
