11 November, 2015
Exceptional single-core result and an average multi-core figure in this early version of Xiaomi's next-gen flagship.

I always enjoyed any product I've owned that has featured a Snapdragon SOC (a recent spell with the Xperia Z5 and its 810 aside) I do hope the 820 lives up to expectations and helps get Qualcomm over what has been a difficult year.

multi core score is pretty weak considering it is newest quadcore chip.. Throttle issue?
but the single core score is okay..

Why is The Frequency only at 1.59 GHZ maybe there is still some juice that can be made use of for the S820, they 3 GHZ was possible, that i think was far off maybe 2.5 GHZ and it would be a beast of a chip if geekbench scores are right at the reading of only 1.59 GHZ.

Scores i think depends on various things. I heard and read bout Sony Xperia z5 premium hitting 65k antutu scores. And 1800 single core. So i think that big 4 companies could have done even more than Xaomi.

very nice score

I do know the first couple of times I ran Geekbench on a Galaxy S6, though it returned the scores we all know that device is capable and of, the details section said it was running 8 cores running at 1.50ghz.

But I do agreement with what you are saying in regards number of cores, more is not the sole measurement of better.

Also i dont think my words were for you, but for anyone who is criticising sn820 before it is used in real. As well for those who thinks octa core is always better than quad core.

AnonD-442781, 13 Nov 2015I think its more likely that the geekbench is correct. Qual... moreWe'll have to wait and see won't we.

Though I can't think of any real reason why Xiaomi would opted to use an 820 then restrict its max running frequency by over 600mhz????, 100mhz or so maybe, we've seen that done by Oneplus with the 810......but 600mhz?????

And if they're using half the cores of exynos,then you'd think they'd be able to increase their single core higher or at least on par with them.

However there no reason to suggest that the 820 in this test did not leverage it's two 'HP' core up to their maximum (2.2ghz), Geekbench has been known to display incorrect value's in it's details section, and this is a brand new SOC.

  • AnonD-387177

It seems that you people dont get it. I know how hard is to believe that Sn820 is a beast, but if you put your brains wide open you might get it someday. If you have seen geekbench lists sn820 with 1.6ghz. If that is true then there is only issue. How powerful gonna be sn820 with 2.2ghz? By this it is going to have single core around 2600 and multi around 5500.

If somehow sn820 becomes octacore with another set of quad core at 1.8ghz and 2.2ghz, multi core is going to be around 7k and single core still 2600.

Single core preformance is the most important here and not multi core. Adding cores to the quaf core wont increase powers of chip, only multitasking.

AnonD-442781, 13 Nov 2015That's interesting. This and the exynos are looking so diff... moreIt's a benchmark test, so it will push the SOC, which will in turn leverage its HP cores as much as possible.

And I am pretty sure that is what is happening, the Geekbench test though has been known to display only the value's of the LP cores in other big.LITTLE examples.

But I'd bet that the scores displayed do reflect the 820 as it currently stands (i.e. 2LP+2HP).

The multi-core score does seem to be a little on the low side though, mind at this stage there could any number of reasons for that, and I wouldn't take this article as a rock solid indication of what to expect performance wise from the 820 (at least as far as multi-core is concerned, single-core score seem to be right on the money as far as expectations go)

Hopefully xiaomi will research my country market first for our LTE band.
what's the use of strong device without strong network ?
