A benchmark leak shows the results of Qualcomm’s new chipset test, Snapdragon 845 with some of its competitors. In the 3DMark benchmark that tests graphics performance, Snapdragon 845 successfully outperformed the iPhone X11’s Aion bionic chipset.
Thanks to the Adreno 630 GPU, Snapdragon 845 graphics performance is up 32 percent compared to its predecessor, Snapdragon 835. The score reached 5,834. While the iPhone A11 bionic chip X only records the performance of 3DMark 4.428 graphics score.
Thus, on paper, mobile phones that carry Snapdragon 845 chip will have a graphics performance that is superior to the iPhone X.
Not only outperformed the A11 bionic iPhone X chip, the Snapdragon 845 GPU that was originally going to be embedded in some top-class smartphones this year, such as the Samsung Galaxy S9, also outperformed Exynos 8895 and Kirin 970 chips.
Qualcomm itself says if the benchmark score is not a natural smartphone performance indication. The results on each phone will be different depending on the software, hardware components and user usage patterns of the smartphone.
However, Qualcomm also assured that the performance of Snapdragon 845 did not disappoint.
Snapdragon 845 promised to make a 30 percent better device performance, capable of displaying output 2.5 times faster, and 30 percent more battery-efficient.
“Our new spectra camera array and Adreno graphics increase power efficiency by 30 percent compared to previous generations,” explained Qualcomm’s representative, as KompasTekno reported from Phone Arena on Thursday (15/2/2018).
The benchmark test is done using Qualcomm Reference Design (QRD), a Qualcomm-made smartphone that serves to test hardware and software development. Thus, it needs another commercial smartphone to prove the results of this benchmark test.
In addition to Samsung Galaxy S9, row of other upscale smartphones may also be carried Snapdragon 845, such as LG, Google Pixel 3 and Xiaomi.
