After announcing its Snapdragon 888 on December 1st and giving full details of its specs a day later, Qualcomm has now released official benchmark results for its latest flagship chipset.
The tests were performed on a special Qualcomm reference device powered by the Snapdragon 888 along with 12GB LPDDR5 RAM, 512GB UFS 3.0 storage and a 6.65-inch FHD display with a 120Hz refresh rate. Each individual criterion was performed three times giving us an average score with the default setting used on the reference tool.
The full list of Qualcomm-tested benchmarks includes AnTuTu, GeekBench, GFXBench Aztec Normal and Manhattan 3.0, Ludashi AiMark, AITuTu, MLPerf and UL Procyon.
Here’s a look at how the test method was simulated.
Starting with AnTuTu (version 8.3.4) the SD 888 delivered an average score of 735,439 points which is not surprising as a new album for the stage. To mention the typical AnTuTu champion – Huawei’s Mate 40 Pro + managed 698,654 points and was the highest Snapdragon 865 phone we’ve seen to date at Xiaomi’s Mi 10 Ultra with 671,045 points.
Geekbench appeared (version 5.0.2) 1,135 points in the one-hearted test and 3,794 for the latest Snapdragon which is a gradual improvement on the SD 865 which tops 900 at the single-core test and 3,400 points in the multi-core segment. This sets the SD 888 up by about 20% single-core gain and nearly 10% improvement for multi-core performance compared to the outgoing SD 865.
GFX Bench unveiled the new average Adreno 660 GPU of the SD 888 86 frames per second on the Aztec Ruins Vulcan test and 169 fps on the Manhattan 3.0 benchmark. Both tests were performed at a 1080p resolution screen outperforming the Snapdragon 865+ which came out at 133fps on Manhattan 3.0 in our ROG Phone 3 benchmark runs.
