Snapdragon 8150 Registers Highest AI Benchmark Score
American chipmaker Qualcomm is about to launch their latest Snapdragon 8150 processor. It will be the successor to the Snapdragon 845. The new processor will be manufactured using the 7 nm FinFET technology compared to its predecessor which is made using the 10 nm technology. Qualcomm claims that the new processor has better performance and consumes less power. Recently, the AI performance of the Snapdragon 8150 was registered on the AI-Benchmark application. The results reveal that the AI scores are about two times higher than the Snapdragon 845.
|Qualcomm 8150 Dev Platform||Snapdragon 8150||6GB||2018||9.0||22082|
|MediaTek P80 Dev Platform||MediaTek Helio P80||6GB||2018||9.0||19453|
|OnePlus 6||Snapdragon 845||8GB||2018||9.0||12274|
|Huawei Mate 20 Pro||HiSilicon Kirin 980 (NPU)||6GB||2018||9.0||12026|
|Huawei P20 Pro||HiSilicon Kirin 970 (NPU)||6GB||2018||9.0||8921|
|Google Pixel 3 XL||Snapdragon 845||4GB||2018||9.0||6895|
|MediaTek P60 Dev Platform||MediaTek Helio P60||6GB||2018||8.1||5767|
The tests were performed on a developer platform (prototype board) and not a real-world device. But it gives a fair idea about what to expect from the new platform. The prototype board with 6 GB of RAM and Android 9.0 Pie scored 22082 points. This score allows it to place at the top of the AI-benchmark results.
Surprisingly, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 815o is closely followed by the MediaTek P80 chipset. Again, the results from the Helio P80 were collected on a prototype board. It is able to fetch a score of 19453 points. The results are about 400% higher than the company’s Helio P60 which is featured on a lot of budget devices like the Oppo Realme 1.
At number three in this list is the Snapdragon 845 which gets a score of 12,274 points. Shockingly the 7 nm Kirin 980 is at number four in the list which Huawei claimed would have 2 times higher AI-scores than its predecessor, the Kirin 970. But, it only manages to fetch 12,026 points which are only 33% faster than P70’s 8921 points. Another revelation that AI-benchmark reveals is that the Google Pixel 3 XL with the Snapdragon 845 only scores 6895 points. This is probably due to lower RAM capacity and inferior optimisation compared to the OnePlus’s Oxygen OS.
All in all, the upcoming Snapdragon 8150 will be an absolute beast and will definitely raise the bar for flagship smartphones.
