Mysterious Snapdragon chipset blows away the competition on Geekbench

09 August 2019
Is Qualcomm already testing the Snapdragon 865?

Sort by:

It destroys most of the high end mobile Intel cpu, what a time we are living :)

Can be the first running kernel mainland with security updates ?

My next phone will be powered by the SD 865.

I play games klike clash of Lords, Idle Miner or Legendary heroes and for that kind of games my Moto X4 with SD630 is great enough. All ganmes running smoothly no lagg and so i dont see a point of having SD855 plus or above.

And even if it would it quickly would begin to lag and thermal throttling would be a big issue.
The good thing about a Chip as strong as the Snapdragon 860 is that it doesn't require as mich core cycles to run a heavy game smoothly so less heat will happen and it's futureproof.

The 820 is already a dated chip and it already struggles running Pubg with a decent temperature.

This benchmark points have zero value.
In real life performance even SD820 were awesome enough to run anything smoothly and fast.
Running a game 0,02 seconds faster than with SD855 have no point.

Watch this instead:
(QSD 855 S10+ vs Mi9)
(QSD 855 S10+ vs Exynos 9820)

Just look @1:56 and see how’s mi9 snapdragon 855 overheating and geekbench score single core and multi core drops in heavy use compare to S10 Exyons 9820.

Gusta, 10 Aug 2019Why are u comparing the SoC with next year SoC (the real product... moreBecause what you propose makes less sense.
It is more unfair to compare a March-2017 release chipset to a Nov-2017 release phone, rather than say, comparing a Nov-2016 release phone to a March-2017 phone.

The way I positioned them is fair and makes sense. There's usually a smaller gap in time between the November Release (not paper-launched) and March Release devices as well. And you typically have those iPhones/Mates compete directly against flagships that are coming in the next year, not the other way around.

As an example think of TSMC 7nm lithography.
They started making it in mid-2018, but it didn't hit consumers until the release of the chipsets of the Kirin 980 and the Apple A12. Shortly after the Snapdragon 855 was released on the same wafer.

I didn't include Exynos because the 9820 is based on the 14nm node, it's not a true die shrink, even if their marketing division calls it "8nm". The Exynos 9825 is a true die shrink and is based on Samsung's 7nm lithography. So in essence they're late in 2019. However, back in 2015 Samsung was 1-year earlier (with their 14nm) than everyone else trying to compete by using 20nm wafers. In general, Apple leads in terms of microarchitecture advantage, Kirin leads in terms of lithography advantage, Snapdragon follows after but offers greater optimisation.... and Exynos follows behind both without any advantage in optimisation, microarchitecture, or lithography (maybe things to change in 2020 ?).

I bought the ipad pro after watching multiple tests in youtube where it beats the i7 macbook pro (which costs 3-4 times more) in video rendering tests. A12X is a beast. Better than 90% laptops out there. Again not in tflops or gflops... But in real world usage. (Not gaming, but work)

Meanwhile, somewhere in a warehouse, the Apple A13 sits waiting to be unleashed.

It's 20% in a synthetic benchmarks which has no relation to real-world use. You can hardly call it "blows away the competition", and nobody will notice any difference in realistic day-to-day use.

What matters most for perceived phone usage is more RAM, and fast storage speeds for when an app or related data is not sitting cached in RAM.

Healthy marginal upgrade. About 20% for single core and 18% for multi core. 855 upgrade over 845 is still the biggest due to heavy architectural change, this new one might only be a better tweak.

Carol, 09 Aug 2019Take a look again, you seem to have an eye problem.Post an Exynos 9820 geekbench score showing slower single core performance than this new Snapdragon and i'll get the peepers checked just for you :)
