The Qualcomm benchmark is a heartbreak for Android fans. Tests reveal that the next year’s flagship phones, including the Galaxy s21 which will house the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, will have less performance than the last year’s iPhone 11 having an A13 chip.
As explained by Anandtech, a renowned tech site, the Geekbench 5 test shows the S888 with a single-core score of 1,135 and a multi-core score of 3,794. In comparison, the iPhone 12 Pro’s A14 chip, scored 1,603 in single-core test and 4,187 in multi-core testing.
The iPhone 11 Pro powered by the A13 chip, scored 1,331 in single-core test and 3,366 in multi-core testing. Thus if not in single-core, the S888 would outperform the A13 in multiple cores.
The Qualcomm benchmark shows the S888 having a drastic improvement over the current fastest Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 865+ chips used in flagship Android devices, but fail miserably near the A14 chip and is even lower than the last year’s A13 chip.
But that’s not all. The Qualcomm also shared graphic benchmarking results. In GFXBench the Snapdragon 888 hit 86 fps which is inferior to the budget-friendly iPhone SE – 89 fps And much lower compared to the entire iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 lineup.
However, Anandtech says power consumption is a decisive factor for sustained performance. Hence, if the S888 chip manages to land between 4 and 4.5 watts, chances are it could take the mobile performance crown from Apple. Though, if Samsung tries to throttle, then Apple will remain the rightful crown owner in the mobile performance sector.
