Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 Surfaces On GeekBench 4 With Modest Scores & Eight Cores


Things have finally started to pick up in pace for 2017. While it was only the iPhone 8 and the Galaxy S8 which saw consistent leaks over the past couple of weeks, other products have started to join the league as well. The LG G6 has started to leak consistently in renders and now it's the Snapdragon 835's turn. The processor has finally surfaced on GeekBench 4, so take a look below to find out more.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Surfaces On GeekBench 4 Showing Modest Performance

2017 will bring a lot of upgrades with it. The year will mark the introduction of 10nm to mobile processors, and with it, significant performance and power upgrades. For processors, the first quarter will see the Samsung Exynos 8895 and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 launched. Both have quite a lot of hype associated with them, and now we've got a first benchmark that appears to belong to the Snapdragon.

Qualcomm's faced a lot of processor problems lately. The US chipmaking giant still hasn't recovered completely from the Snapdragon 810's overheating. It precipitated the launch of custom cores on the Snapdragon 820 this year. Kryo hasn't taken off completely either, as the Snapdragon 821's benchmarks suggest. Now, take a look below at the GeekBench 4 scores which appear to belong the Snapdragon 835.


Compared to the Snapdragon 821, the 835 appears to have better multi-core performance and worse single-core scores. That's undoubtedly due to the fact that the cores in these results are clocked to 1.9 GHz rather than the 3.0 GHz that we've seen to be associated with the Kryo 400 which will make it on board the Snapdragon 835. Also, the Snapdragon 821 contains only four cores while the processor above is an octa-core piece of silicon.

Aside from these details, we've also got a breakdown of the results above. The main distinction of today's results from the Snapdragon 821 lies in the memory latency scores for the Snapdragon 835. LPDDR4X is rumored to make it with the processor as things head towards fast upgrades in 2017. TSMC's also denied any rumors of delays with 10nm, but whether things are proceeding smoothly at Samsung still remains to be known. Thoughts?
