Snapdragon 8150 whips Kirin 980 and Apple A12 Bionic chips

Qualcomm Snapdragon 8150

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.

The high-performance Cortex-A76 core is clocked at 2.84GHz, while the three medium Cortex-A76 cores are clocked at 2.4GHz. The four smaller Cortex-A55 cores clock in at 1.78GHz.

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.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 8150GPU scores aren’t less impressive either. At 156,328, they’re about 20 percent better in raw performance than the Adreno 630 in the current Snapdragon 845, which is a powerful chip in itself.

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.
