American chip manufacturer Qualcomm in December he surprised with the introduction of the flag chipset Snapdragon 888 instead of the expected Snapdragon 875. So far, it has been ordered by at least 14 manufacturers and should have its premiere on the Xiaomi Mi 11 series smartphones. According to the portal GSMarena but even before that, Qualcomm showed its official results in popular benchmarks.
On which device and by what method was the test performed?
Qualcomm performed the benchmark test on its own reference device. In addition to the Snapdragon 888, it had 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM, 512 GB of UFS 3.0 internal memory, and a 6.65-inch 120 Hz FHD display. The test was performed 3 times on each benchmark and an average score was generated from all three experiments.
Higher performance compared to the previous generation in all benchmarks
It has been tested in benchmarks AnTuTu, GeekBench, GFXBench Aztec Normal and Manhattan 3.0, Ludashi AiMark, AITuTu, MLPerf and UL Procyon. In the AnTuT benchmark version 2.3.4, Snapdragon 888 achieved an average score 735 439 pointswhich should be a new record. The new Huawei Mate 40 Pro + with the Kirin 9000 chipset officially received 698,654 points and the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra with Snapdragon received 865,671,045 points.
In the GeekBench 5.0.2 benchmark, it reached the chipset 1135 points in a single – core test and 3794 in multicore. The average score for the Snapdragon 865 is around 900 points in the single-core and 3400 points in the multi-core test. The increase in performance compared to the previous generation is thus 20% and 10%, respectively, depending on the number of cores used. As with AnTuT, this is a shift in performance, but not as significant as might be expected.
In the third GFX Bench benchmark known to us, the graphic core of the Adreno 660 chipset achieved equally excellent results. In the Aztec Ruins Vulcan test it was 86 frames per second and in the Manhattan 3.0 test it was 169 frames per second. Both tests were performed at 1080p resolution. Even in this case, we have the opportunity to compare the result with the previous generation. The Asus ROG Phone 3 gaming smartphone with the Snapdragon 865+ chipset achieved 133 frames per second in the Manhattan 3.0 test.
What chipsets will compete with the Snapdragon 888 next year?
But the Snapdragon 888 will compete with newer chipsets next year, such as the Exynos 2100 from Samsung. The launch of the competing chipset was also announced at the beginning of next year by the Chinese manufacturer MediaTek. But the most interesting will definitely be a direct comparison with the currently most powerful mobile ARM chipset on the market Apple A14 Bionic.
