More than two weeks ago, Qualcomm unveiled the Snapdragon 888 SOC which is going to power a majority of Android flagships next year. Some of the notable upgrades over the Snapdragon 865 include the 6th Gen AI Engine, a new ISP, an integrated X60 5G modem, 25% faster Kryo 680 CPU & 35% faster Adreno 660 GPU. Well now, the company shared the benchmark scores of the chipset & speaking of the devices on which these benchmarks were performed, these were the Qualcomm reference devices featuring Snapdragon 888, 12GB RAM, 512GB storage & a 120Hz FHD+ panel.
Qualcomm benchmarked the chipset on various platforms that include AnTuTu, Geekbench, GFXBench, AIMark, Procyon AI etc. Also, benchmarks such as AnTuTu and Geekbench were done three times to see the variation in the scores & get the average score.
The chipset was benchmarked on AnTuTu v.8.3.4, and the scores of the three iterations were 740,847, 731,916 and 733,554 respectively. Hence, the average AnTuTu score of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 came out to be 735,439, which is also the highest score ever on the AnTuTu benchmark.
