Snapdragon 8 Gen 1: Benchmarks show they have a long way to go to get Apple on track


The benchmarks, which run on a Qualcomm test device at the company's Snapdragon Summit, show a chipset that is primarily a gradual step ahead of the existing Snapdragon 888.

Τthe new chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 provides somewhat better benchmark performance than its predecessor, the Snapdragon 888, but Qualcomm is still behind the latest iPhone in relation to net power, according to benchmarks.

These benchmarks, which run on a Qualcomm test device at Snapdragon Summit of the company, show a chipset that is primarily a gradual step forward in relation to the existing one Snapdragon 888. This is not surprising, as Qualcomm has promised 20% faster CPU capabilities and 30% better GPU during the presentation of the processor.

The test phone has a screen 1080p, 144Hz, 8GB LPDDR5 RAM and 512GB storage space UFS 3.1. It has him 8 January 1, which has a core Cortex-X2 3 GHz, three nuclei2,5 GHz Cortex-A710 and four cores Cortex-A510 1,8 GHz, together with 6MB L3 cache.

The design of Qualcomm's new Kryo CPU in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.

This is a big step from him Snapdragon 888, which uses the previous kernel designs Cortex-X1, Cortex-A78 and Cortex-A55. But in benchmarks… not so much.

That's it PCMag compare the Snapdragon test device with the models Apple iPhone 12 and 13, as well as the Qualcomm Smartphone for Snapdragon Insiders, which features the 888 in maximum performance and the popular Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra.

In its multi-core ratings Geekbench, which measures CPU power, we saw an increase 15% in relation to Galaxy s21 ultra and an overall score competitive with iPhone 12 and not with iPhone 13.

Qualcomm has recognized that it is back in CPU power. The company recently acquired a startup called Bride, founded by its former engineers Apple and its CEO Qualcomm, Cristiano Amon, said the first Nuvia-based chips will be ready for testing in late 2022.

To Basemark Web, a browser-based benchmark, the test phone showed better results than its previous phones Qualcomm, but far behind its performance iPhone 13.

The GFXBench, a benchmark for the GPU, showed something different when using the newer ones Vulkan API, with the new GPU Adreno of Snapdragon 8 Gen1 to have a higher score in the significant off-screen test than any of its other phones Apple or Qualcomm. Qualcomm did not release details on the design of the new Adreno, although it said it was optimized for Volcano and would show improvement up to 60% compared to last year's models when using this API.

Qualcomm claims shorter application startup times than a competing chipset, but does not say which.

Qualcomm tried to focus on applications rather than primary performance with the chipset Snapdragon 8 Gen1 and it is clear why. In terms of the most basic performance measurements of the computer system, Qualcomm is currently significantly behind its competitor Apple.

This does not mean that Snapdragon 8 Gen1 will be bad. Last week, we saw how it allows new features based on things like the modem, the AI and camera systems. However, it shows Qualcomm's tough stance on key functions right now, and its relatively weak position trying to address them. Apple M1 processors on a PC transition to ARM.

The test device was also problematic and not optimized (the multitasking button on Android often did not work and the Basemark Web stopped working several times.) Hopefully we will see better performance from end products like Samsung Galaxy S22 and the OnePlus 10.
