Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 benchmarks show massive gains

Snapdragon 845 Powered OnePlus 6 and Galaxy S9 Will Be Insanely Fast, Benchmark Reveals

The chipmaker recently made the Snapdragon 845 SoC available for benchmark tests, which revealed its several features and capabilities. This is also the company's first System-on-Chip to support DynamiQ, which gives it a more efficient voltage control.

Qualcomm's latest flagship mobile processor, Snapdragon 845, will be seen on most high-end Android smartphones this year. According to a previous benchmark, the high-end Snapdragon chipset only obtained a score of 2,378 on the single core test (via TechTastic) and a score of 8,132 on the multi-core test. This may have somewhat harmed performance scaling, though the Snapdragon 845 is faster than the 835, especially in floating point performance.

The 845 also packs an upgraded GPU, the Adreno 630, as well as Qualcomm's new Snapdragon X20 LTE modem, which can supposedly reach download speeds of 1.2Gbps (up from 1Gbps on the 635's Snapdragon X16 modem) and adds dual VoLTE support for devices with dual SIMs. Samsung is expected to host its Galaxy Unpacked event in Barcelona on 25 of February where it is expected to launch its new flagship. Additionally, it will help you get an idea of what kind of performance levels the new Snapdragon 845 VR and AR HMDs might have when they release this year.

Some lashed him on the premise that he cost the club a whopping £70 million to sign from Real Madrid during the last summer.

We have known that the latest processor from Qualcomm has already been released and the announcement was done at the end of a year ago. On a Javascript test, the 845 was 37% faster than the nearest Android phones, though it lagged far behind Apple's latest models, which run in proprietary chips designed by the Cupertino phonemaker. The one instance where the Snapdragon 845 did beat the A11 was on the Sling Shot OpenGL ES 3.0 test, with 5,964 against 3,998. In PCMark's overall performance score, the SD845 shows a 17% increase over the current top performing Android handset, the Pixel XL 2. The forthcoming SoC is set to power the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2s as well as the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9.

Speaking on the performance comparison with the iPhone X, AnandTech's Ryan Smith and Andrei Frumusanu said, "When we're looking at competitor devices we see only the the iPhone X able to compete with the last generation Snapdragon 835 devices - however with a catch".
