Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 Was Defeated by Apple

Qualcomm shared the benchmark results of the new chipset Snapdragon 888; which will power the flagships to be released next year. The results reveal that the new chip is slightly more powerful than Snapdragon 865.

Qualcomm, which announced the next generation chipset Snapdragon 888 earlier this month, now shared the official benchmark results for the chipset. The shared results show us how smartphones from Qualcomm’s new chipset to be launched will perform.

Qualcomm shared the benchmark results of the new chipset Snapdragon 888; which will power the flagships to be released next year. The results reveal that the new chip is slightly more powerful than Snapdragon 865.

Tests were carried out on a custom Qualcomm reference device with 12 GB LPDDR5 RAM, 512 GB UFS 3.0 storage and a 6.65-inch FHD display with 120 Hz refresh rate. The company says each respective benchmark is run three times and gives average scores with the default settings used on the reference device.

To start with the features of the new chip, Snapdragon 888 has 1 Cortex-X1 running at 2.84 GHz, 3 Cortex-A78 running at 2.42 GHz and 4 Cortex-A55 cores running at 1.8 GHz.

Tests

In AnTuTu tests, Snapdragon 888 scored an average of 735,439 points, breaking a new record for the platform. For a comparison, the current AnTuTu champion Huawei Mate 40 Pro + has 698,654 points; while the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra with Snapdragon 865 has 671,045 points.

The CPU results in GeekBench 5 reveal a remarkable improvement in the new model compared to last year’s most powerful Snapdragon 865. At this point, it can be said that the Snapdragon 888 is 18% more performance in multi-core; and 26% in single-core compared to Galaxy S20 FE with 865.

As for the graphics side, the Snapdragon 888 managed to achieve 59% better results in the Aztec test; and 31% in the Manhattan test compared to the Snapdragon 865. However, the chip failed to beat Apple’s A14 Bionic processor in these tests. While the Apple processor breaks a negligible advantage of 7% in multi-core CPU scenarios; it is a tremendous superiority at 41% in a single core.
