December is approaching fast and that means Qualcomm will soon unveil it’s next-gen, flagship CPU along with its upper mid-tier SoC – the Snapdragon 875 and 775G, respectively. And thanks to a famous Chinese tipster, we can also get a pretty good idea of what to expect in terms of performance.
Reportedly, the prototype platform running the Snapdragon 875 scored around 740,000 points in AnTuTu, which is almost 25% faster than the Snapdragon 865+-powered smartphones that we tested. They cap around the 600,000 mark.
However, we are pretty curious about the raw CPU performance and more specifically about the single-threaded workloads. After all, the chipset is said to take advantage of a different architecture and core arrangement. One big Cortex-X1 running at 2.84 GHz will sit behind the wheel along with three other Cortex-A78 cores ticking at 2.42 GHz while the energy-efficient cores will be Cortex-A55 running at 1.8 GHz. As for the GPU, it would be Adreno 660 and the whole SoC will be built on the brand new 5nm node.
Unfortunately, as of now, we don’t have any details on the architecture of the Snapdragon 775G, the successor to the Snapdragon 765G. But the alleged AnTuTu 8 score promises a significant improvement. It scored around 530,000 points as opposed to the Snapdragon 765G handsets reaching merely 320,000 points. That’s a hefty 65% increase in performance.
Keep in mind, though, that even if the scores are correct, the tests were run on a prototype test bench so the actual performance may vary. In most cases, it goes up a little when it gets released to the public.
