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 we’ve 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 it’s a 2+2+4 instead of the usual 4+4. The Kirin 980, a competing 7nm chipset that’s 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
  • Snapdragon 8150
  • Huawei Mate 20 Pro
  • Samsung Galaxy Note9
  • Google Pixel 3 XL

GeekBench 4.1 (single-core)

Higher is better

  • Apple iPhone XS Max
  • Samsung Galaxy Note9
  • Huawei Mate 20 Pro
  • Snapdragon 8150
  • Google Pixel 3 XL

Anyway, the results show a solid incremental improvement over the predecessor, the Snapdragon 845. However, they don’t leapfrog Huawei’s score and certainly don’t topple Apple. The single core performance of the A12 is out of reach.

Again, these are early results and we don’t 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 we’ll 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.
