Qualcomm’s mobile CPUs are held in high regard in the mobile smartphone segment and each year dozens upon dozens of flagship use the SoCs from the US-based chip maker. We’re a few hours away from the unveiling of Qualcomm’s next-gen CPU – the Snapdragon 855, and AnTuTu has just revealed some juicy scores with the Galaxy S10 Plus toting the said CPU. Earlier today, quite a lot of info got out before launch as an online portal published its report of the upcoming CPU prematurely. But let’s take a look at those official scores quickly.
Currently, all other chip makers that make mobile CPUs have already rolled out their next-gen CPUs. Samsung released the Exynos 9820, Huawei announced the HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC a while back and these two have been pitted against Qualcomm’s latest 7nm beast. As you can see the image, the results speak for itself. When the Snapdragon 855 releases tomorrow, it will be the strongest chipset around. The device being tested on the benchmark here is none other than the Galaxy S10+ and it records a score of 343,051. This is close to a previously leaked benchmark involving the same CPU that resulted in an all-time high score of above 360,000. The Exynos 9820 which is also based on the 7nm process and boasts a dedicated AI core recorded a score of 325,067. Lastly, the Kirin 980 from the house of Huawei comes third with 309,425 score. Obviously, the Snapdragon 845 is the last on the list with the lowest score.
It was previously thought that the unannounced CPU would be named Snapdragon 8150. However, it is now clear that SM8150 is its internal name. Aside from flaunting its own dedicated NPU, the System-on-Chip will also support Multi-Gigabit 5G connectivity.
