Qualcomm Snapdragon

Qualcomm unveiled its upcoming flagship processor, the Snapdragon 865 at its annual Snapdragon Tech Summit, which took place yesterday. While the latest Snapdragon 865 is the most powerful Snapdragon processor that Qualcomm has ever made, it appears that the latest SD 865 processor will continue the trend of Snapdragon processor being less powerful than Apple’s Bionic chipset.

Famous leaker Ice Universe posted an image of the Geekbench scores of the Snapdragon 865 on Twitter and as per the image, Qualcomm’s latest flagship chipset managed a single-core score of 4,303 and a multi-core score of 13,344, as opposed to A13 Bionic’s single-core score of 5,400 and a multi-core score of 13,900. A13 Bionic is Apple’s latest ARM chipset, which powers the latest iPhone 11 series of smartphones.

It’s not only just Apple’s A13 Bionic chipset who is claiming victory over the SD 865 but also Samsung’s Exynos 9825 chipset, which managed a single-core score of 4,500.

On the bright side, however, the SD 865 is significantly faster than the Snapdragon 855+, or at least that’s what the scores suggest. Snapdragon 855+ managed a single-core score of around 3,700 and a multi-core score of 11,400 and if you compare these scores with those of the 865, you can see that it’s overwhelmingly faster than the 855+.
