The Snapdragon 865 in front of its rivals. What is the best processor of 2020?

QualcommThe battle of the most powerful mobiles of 2020 has not yet started, but everything seems to indicate that a very entertaining year awaits us. The recently introduced Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 will be the brain of many high-end of the year that is yet to come, and will compete with the Huawei Kirin, the most powerful of MediaTek, Exynos or even the A13 Bionic from Apple . Now we know which processor is the most powerful of all.

We know that the ZTE Axon 10s Pro 5G is the first terminal to integrate the Snapdragon 865, direct successor of the Snapdragon 855 and 855 Plus that have integrated the most powerful mobiles of 2019. However, we have now been able to see a real test in the famous program AnTuTu performance, where the new Qualcomm chip has beaten all its rivals.

Breaking records

The device that has been used to perform the test has a code name “Kona” and has achieved an AnTuTu score of 568,919 points . To get an idea, the Snapdragon 855 has obtained an average of 450,000 points in the most powerful Android phones of 2019.

This means that it not only exceeds the previous model, but that it beats the Kirin 990 5G and even the new MediaTek Dimensity 1000 The AnTuTu scores of the different processors are as follows:

  • Snapdragon 865 : 545,977 points
  • A13 Bionic : 524,814 points
  • MediaTek Dimensity 1000 : 511,363 points
  • Snapdragon 855 Plus: 498,317 points
  • Kirin 990 : 457,357 points
  • Exynos 9825 : 442,568 points Snapdragon 865 en AnTuTu

It has also beaten the A13

Recently we also saw a performance test in which the Snapdragon 865 beat Apple’s A13 Binoic. Keep in mind that Qualcomm has announced a 25% improvement in the performance of the CPU and GPU in this new processor, to which we must add twice the performance in tasks related to AI and lower energy consumption.

To these results and despite the overwhelming victory of Snapdragon 865, we must add some a variable to take into account. The test has been performed with a device, possibly testing that optimizes the processor’s performance to the maximum.

It is very possible that when the first tests with commercial mobiles come to light, the score tends to fall slightly. However, everything will depend on the optimization carried out by each manufacturer and its software.

The Snapdragon 865 is expected to be the brain of many high-end 2019 including the next Galaxy S11 , which will feature a variant with this chip. Its technical characteristics make it compatible with screens up to 144Hz and cameras up to 200 megapixels.

You can also record video in 8K and use the second generation X55 modem so that the phones that integrate it can connect to 5G networks.
