  AnTuTu’s Report :TOP-10 Performance Smartphone Chips

  Recently, many smartphone manufacturers released their respective new products, which undoubtedly makes users feel overwhelmed with choices. Due to the release of new smartphones, the smartphone ranking list based on chip performance has had the earth-shaking change! This time last year, Apple A9 took the lead, followed by HiSilicon Kirin 950. And today, Qualcomm , Apple and Samsung are fighting for the “throne”. Do you know which smartphone chip is the most powerful one? Let’s have a look at the TOP-10 performance smartphone chips.

  Note: All the results in the data are average scores, not the highest ones. And the actual running results may fluctuate, which is a normal phenomenon.

  Ranking of Overall Performance

  According to the most updated ranking of TOP-10 performance smartphone chips, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor won the first place and it got a score of 136,383, which is nearly 4000 higher than that of Apple A9. Besides, Samsung Exynos 8890 also performed well, and its performance is already close to that of Apple A9.

  Qualcomm Snapdragon 820-powered smartphones include: Samsung Galaxy S7, Letv MAX Pro, Mi5, LG G5, Sony Xperia X Performance, etc; currently, only one smartphone is Exynos 8890-powered, i.e. Samsung Galaxy S7.

  The newly launched Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 & 650 also give outstanding performance, and Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 is already close to Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 in performance. Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 has already surpassed Qualcomm Snapdragon 808, which brings brand-new power to the market of midrange smartphones. Since currently there is no MediaTek MT 6797-powered mobile phone in the market yet, MTk processor is not available in the TOP-10 list.

  The typical Qualcomm Snapdragon 652-powered mobile phone is Samsung Galaxy A9; the typical Qualcomm Snapdragon 650-powered mobile phone is Red Mi Note3.

  Ranking of GPU Performance

  In recent years, smartphones are attaching increasing importance to the GPU performance, since the GPU performance is closely related to the game performance and using fluency of a mobile phone, and it has a direct impact on users’ actual experience. Currently, the GPU with the highest performance is Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 (Adreno530), and its GPU score has already reached a score of 55,000. Samsung Exynos 8890 (Mali-T880 MP12) nearly equals Apple A9 (PowerVR GT7600). As for HiSilicon Kirin 950 (Mali-T880 MP4) that is well known to all, its GPU performance is not good enough, and its GPU results are similar to Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 (Adreno418) and Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 (Adreno510).

  In fact, the GPU performance is also directly related to the screen resolution of your smartphone. Currently, the mainstream resolution is 1080P, and 2K resolution has become a development trend of high-end smartphones. Without the support of strong GPU, even 2K resolution will still leads to worse user experience.

  Of course, the factors that determine the performance of a mobile phone is far more than CPU and GPU. We should be fully aware that nothing but the powerful performance of the chips is the foundation of an outstanding user experience! Without the support of strong performance, any user experience will be an empty talk, as a proverb goes, “you can't make something out of nothing!”

  The above-mentioned information is just AnTuTu’s report on top-10 performance smartphone chips. From these data analysis, we can find out that Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 takes the lead regarding its chip performance. Although Apple has not released new processors, the overall performance of Apple A9 is still powerful. Relying on Exynos 8890, Samsung equals Apple A9 in overall performance. Generally speaking, the performance of Samsung Exynos 8890 is very impressive.
