Snapdragon 898 is Qualcomm's latest flagship chipset, and now, thanks to the first unveiling of its benchmark on the Geekbench site, we can focus on its features. Although Xiaomi is usually the first company to offer a phone equipped with Qualcomm's flagship chipset, this benchmark is for a Vivo phone. According to various reports, the Xiaomi May 12 series handsets will be launched with this chipset.
In this benchmark, the Snapdragon 898 scored 720 and 1919 in single and multi-core scores, which is much lower than the recorded figures. By the previous generation. According to published reports, the Snapdragon 898 is about 20% faster than the 888, but in any case this increase in speed is not seen in this benchmark.
This lower-than-expected performance could be due to the phone's unstable firmware as well as the non-final chip in question. On the other hand, this test may have been performed in battery saving mode, which puts less strain on the processor and therefore records poorer performance. All in all, we'll have to wait for more benchmarks to be released to see if other benchmarks show lower numbers as well.
As expected, the core of this 2.42 GHz Cortex-X2 chipset is benefits. Although the Cortex-A710 and Coretx-A510 cores are not mentioned in this benchmark, we are dealing with the same cores with speeds of 2.17 GHz and 1.79 GHz. These numbers indicate that the benchmark obtained from this Snapdragon 898 model did not provide its maximum power.
According to one report, the maximum speed of the Cortex-X1 reaches 3.09 GHz. For comparison, the X1, A78 and A55 cores in the Snapdragon 888 use speeds of 2.7, 2.4 and 1.7 GHz, respectively.
