Antutu announced the ranking of top 10 smartphone chips
Snapdragon 820 chip of Qualcomm was taken into an Antutu benchmark test and the result will show you how strong it really is…
Where were Snapdragon 820 and other chips on Antutu benchmark?
Some people said that Snapdragon 820 was like an “apology” Qualcomm sent to consumers after their “too hot” Snapdragon 810 chip. And in fact, the SD820 does show it works much better than the SD810. To prove this, we would like to give you the result of an Antutu benchmark test in which Snapdragon 820 was examined and compared with other well-known processors.
Apparently, all the chipsets were ranked by basing on their average scores after attending many tests, not their highest ones, so that the reliability is pretty high. In the end, SD820 was the champion of the “Smartphone Chip Performance” battle and Apple A9 was the runner-up. Third place went to Samsung’s own Exynos 8890 and then we have Kirin 950, Exynos 7420, Snapdragon 810, Snapdragon 652, Apple A8, Snapdragon 650 và Snapdragon 808. Those are top 10 processors for now!
As for “Smartphone Chip GPU Performance”, SD820 paired with Adreno 530 GPU was still number one. In general, we have to praise it for such awesome work. As a result, handsets equipped with Snapdragon 820 such as Samsung Galaxy S7, LG G5, Sony Xperia X Performance, Vivo Xplay 5 Elite and Xiaomi Mi5 will surely bring you excellent experience.
So, what exactly is Snapdragon 820?
The Snapdragon 820 is a 14 nm chip that consists of five main components: Kryo CPU, Adreno 530 GPU, Hexagon 680 DSP, Qualcomm Spectra ISP and the X12 LTE Modem. Speaking more specifically, the Kryo features a quad-core 2.2GHz setup. The Adreno 530 GPU can give 40 percent faster graphics plus 40 percent less power consumption. The Hexagon 680 DSP (digital signal processor) together with Spectra ISP (image signal processor) is to produce brighter, less noisy photos, especially in low-light conditions. And last but not least, the X12 LTE supports 802.11ad wireless spec which offers a max throughput of 4.6Gbps. Overall, Snapdragon 820 is “the ultimate in connectivity, graphics, photography, power and battery efficiency.”
