Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888/888+ 5G chipset was introduced only a few months ago. The Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 was the first smartphone to have an 888+ processor. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888+, on the other hand, does not represent a significant boost. It still has throttling and heating difficulties as a result of the high-performance Cortex X series CPU, which has an indirect or direct impact on the device’s performance. Fans have high hopes for the forthcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 8Gx Gen 1 5G processor. Qualcomm is expected to address the throttling and performance concerns with the upcoming Snapdragon 8Gx Gen 1 5G processor (aka Snapdragon 898).
Snapdragon 8Gx Gen 1 vs Exynos 2200 vs Apple A15 Bionic: GPU
In terms of GPU performance, the Snapdragon 8Gx Gen 1 looks to fall short of its two main competitors, the upcoming Exynos 2200 and the Apple 15 Bionic. The Snapdragon 8Gx Gen 1 chipset achieves 158.4 frames per second on Manhattan 3.1, 112.7 frames per second on Aztec Normal, and 43.1 frames per second on Aztec High. In comparison, the Exynos 2200 clocked 170.7 FPS, 121.4 FPS, and 51.5 FPS in early testing, while the A15 Bionic passed the Manhattan 3.1 test at 198 FPS. This is a 7.2% deficit when compared to the Exynos 2200 and a 20% disadvantage when compared to the A15 Bionic.
|Chipsets||Manhattan 3.1 (Early Test)||Test Report|
|Snapdragon 8Gx Gen 1||158.4 FPS||
|Exynos 2200||170.7 FPS||
|Apple A15 Bionic||198 FPS||
Peak performance isn’t the sole metric, though. Sustained performance is more essential, and it looks that Qualcomm outperforms its competitors in this area owing to less throttling. When compared to the Exynos 2200, Front Tron claims that this should provide equal sustained performance. Under continuous loads, the Exynos 2200 and A15 Bionic experience performance reductions of around 25% and 35%, respectively, according to Qualcomm’s statistics. In comparison, the Snapdragon 8Gx Gen 1 is expected to throttle by about 20%.
