Snapdragon 855 Scores 350k+ In Antutu According To Lenovo


At its tech summit earlier this month, Qualcomm took the wraps off of the Snapdragon 855. The SoC is Qualcomm's first 7nm chipset and it will power next year's flagship smartphones. However, if you were waiting for next to get a feel of what to expect from the Snapdragon 845, don't. Lenovo has launched its Z5 Pro today, and with the device, we get an Antutu benchmark score for the Snapdragon 855. Take a look below for more details.

Lenovo's Z5 Pro GT Powered By Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 Scores 368,480 Points On Antutu

Qualcomm's made quite a few changes on the Snapdragon 8xx processor lineup with the Snapdragon 855. The company moved forward from the lineup's traditional 'big.LITTLE' core clusters, and instead chose to follow an approach it dubs as 'Prime Core'. The Snapdragon 855's Kryo 485 CPU features one core that's clocked at 2.8GHz, and then two additional clusters for high and low performance.

As it's hardly been a month since Qualcomm launched the Snapdragon 855, there's little concrete information to ascertaining the SoC's performance. 7nm is a big jump, and Apple's A12 was quick to gain a top place in benchmarks. With that said, Lenovo's Z5 Pro GT launch naturally came with some benchmark scores.

The variant of the smartphone with 12GB RAM scores 368,480 points in Antutu, as per Lenovo's figures. Lenovo's numbers for the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max fall in line with the pair's real-world performance. However, Apple's gadgets are limited in RAM when compared to the Z4's 12GBs. Keep in mind that Antutu is a holistic measurement for a device's performance, and therefore it considers several factors (including RAM) when computing a final score.

So it's only natural to want to know how the 'CPU' component of Antutu performs. Luckily for us, Antutu believes that the processor should score around 360,000 if we remove the Z5's RAM advantage. Additionally, an earlier leak for the Galaxy S10 (courtesy of Antutu), showed that the smartphone scored 343,051 points. This is in the ballpark of Apple's iPhone XR, but at this point, we're talking about an unreleased smartphone. So it's only natural for scores to change post-launch.
