Up until the launch of the Snapdragon 820, Apple’s A9 processor dominated Geekbench with the highest recorded single and multicore performance.
The recently announced Kryo based chipset was able to trump over the Apple A9 SoC easily leading by a few point on the respective core tests as seen in the image below.
A quick recap on the processing package of the SD820; we have a custom Kyro-based Quad core chipset clocked at a respectable 2.5Ghz and based off Samsung’s 14nm FinFET process – for even smaller dies and faster throughput while still having a good TDP.
The aforementioned chipset and the Exynos 8890 will reportedly share many other similarities. Aside been based on a 14nm node technology, both chipsets are expected to score similar benchmark scores across all the varying testing platforms.
The Snapdragon 820 has seen numerous testing and some of the reported results include the Geekbench score we mentioned above, AnTuTu score of 133,648 on a reference device during its launch in China and the most recent score leak on a LeTV Le Max Pro smartphone that is to unveil at CES 2016 in LA.
So far we’ve only heard of a reported 6908 Geekbench score of the Mongoose based Exynos 8890 and no real world test yet.
However, we will be reporting on the Geekbench score of MediaTek’s Helio X20 powerhouse. The 10 core flagship chipset of the Chinese semiconductor company was announced earlier this year featuring a dual CortexA72 chip clocked up to 2,5Ghz, a quad Cortex A53 running at 2.0Ghz and four other Cortex A53 with a based core speed of 1.4Ghz.
Apparently the Helio X20 leads wit the highest recorded multi-core score in Geekbench followed by HiSilicon Kirin 950 with 6200 multi-core points.
