Qualcomm’s upcoming 7nm Snapdragon 8150 flagship SoC may just be a scorcher, if leaked benchmarks are to be believed. The chip scored a whopping 362,292 overall in AnTuTu benchmarks, beating the Kirin 980 (273,913) by a mile, and the Apple A12 Bionic (353,210) by a small margin.
What’s interesting about the benchmark results that was leaked on Weibo is the chipset configuration.
According to the leakster, the Snapdragon 8150 comes in a unique core configuration: 1x high-performance core, 3x medium cores and 4x energy-efficient low-performance cores.
This is an unconventional approach, and uses ARM’s DynamiQ architecture that lets manufacturers pair different types of cores with different clock speeds into one cluster.
There’s no mention of a neural processing unit (NPU) but I’m sure details will follow in due time.
It’s worth to note that these are unverified numbers so do take them with a grain of salt. That said, it does pave way for exciting months ahead.
Qualcomm is expected to announce the Snapdragon 8150 near the beginning of December together with the laptop-focused Snapdragon 8180, set to succeed the Snapdragon 850.
