Snapdragon 8 Gen 1: the benchmarks are out, Apple worried?

© Hot Hardware

Announced last week, Qualcomm’s new SoC shows itself for the very first time in a series of benchmarks. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, which should find its place in a large number of smartphones high-end in 2022 is therefore logically measured against the Apple A15 Bionic which equips iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro.

But Apple’s platform does a priori not too much to worry about. At least not on all fronts. If the new Snapdragon provides better performance, especially in gaming, it remains largely behind the processor of Apple.

An explosion of performance on AI

The site Hot Hardware was able to get his hands on a smartphone prototype embedding the famous Qualcomm chip. It was therefore equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, 8 GB of LPDDR5, and 512 GB of UFS 3.1 storage. A solid configuration, therefore, which the tester put to the test on most applications of benchmarks that we ourselves use in our tests.

On GFXBench, which tests the graphics capabilities of devices, in particular, it turns out that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is far ahead of the rankings (on the Manhattan Offscreen ES 3.0 test). It emerges from the protocol with 267 images per second on average, against 215 fps for the iPhone 13 Pro. The rest of the ranking (under Snapdragon 888) is below the 200 mark. On another test, T-Rex Offscreen, the two competing smartphones are however neck and neck with a frame difference only.

On 3D Mark and its Wild Life test, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 nevertheless remains behind the latest Apple with 10,443 points against 11,699 for the iPhone 13 Pro.

AnTuTu Benchmark, which we use very regularly at Clubic, easily takes the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 to the top of the list with an all-time high of 1,031,302 points. By comparison, the best Android smartphones running Snapdragon 888 garner 800,000 points, at best. Apple’s A15 Bionic came out of the test with 815,000 points.

An increasingly beefy CPU at Apple

But there is still one point on which Apple’s solution remains vastly superior to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1: it’s processor.

Put to the test under GeekBench 5, Qualcomm’s new SoC is even distanced … by the iPhone 11 Pro, released two years ago. Indeed, the tests carried out by Hot Hardware demonstrate that Qualcomm’s efforts have clearly focused on other aspects of its architecture. The single and multi-core performance of the CPU is thus substantially identical to that offered by the Snapdragon 888+.

Overall, however, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 comes forward as a very high-end chip. As has been said, equipped smartphones should be able to perform AI-related tasks much faster than on previous generations. And it turns out that our smartphones rely more and more on this type of calculation.
