AnTuTu benchmark tests of various chipsets has Apple A9 on top

AnTuTu benchmark tests of various chipsets has Apple A9 on top
Discovered on Weibo today, was a chart allegedly showing benchmark test scores for a number of  chipsets found under the hoods of various devices. The chips were run through AnTuTu 6.0, and on top was the Apple A9 SoC. Designed by Apple and produced by both Samsung and TSMC, the chip powers the Apple iPhone 6s and the Apple iPhone 6s Plus, and produced a score of 123,567.

Some of you might have had an inkling that the A9 would be on top, so you probably are wondering which chip was the runner-up. That was the Apple 8X which produced a tally of 98,901. This chip can be found powering the Apple iPad Air 2. Huawei's Kirin 950, which just found a home inside the Huawei Mate 8, was third with an impressive score of 92,746.

The Exynos 7420 SoC, the powerhouse that drives the Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 was next with 86,652 points. The first Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset on the list, the Snapdragon 810 SoC, finished fifth with a score of 81,049. The first MediaTek chip to appear on the list was the MT6795 SoC, which carries a true octa-core CPU. That chipset ranked 12th producing a benchmark score of 54,499.

Obviously, some big name chipsets were not listed, such as the MediaTek Helio X20 and its deca-core CPU, the Snapdragon 820 and the Apple A9X. All three of these chips would have probably topped the chart had they been included. Of the three, only the A9X can be currently found on a device that is currently offered for sale. That would be the Apple iPad Pro.


Thanks for the tip!

They've gotten smarter. Now it's always "those benchmarks are BS."

(Btw, I personally don't think benchmarks have meant a whole heck of a lot since about 2011.)

A9 is really impressive!!

Though I still prefer Android open ecosystem.

The E8890 Will Crush It, Shit The 820 Might Beat It As Well. Even Tho I Think AnTuTu Is Horrible.

Wait for the SD 820 and the new exynos. Apple's chip won't stay on top for long

Nice score. If the test take software into account then iOS lacks a lot of features making it lighter. Still impressive score

You mean a brand new chipset beats out 6 month old chipsets!?!?! What!?!! No way! That is impressive!

But that's not what you hear when Apple releases new products.

New Apple > xyz product

1 of the things I like best about Apple is their chips. It's a shame they don't give put that power to use more

rick, I can take you seriously, if you would point out how changing fonts and icons is so important...

Read context clues "if"...

Also to elaborate a bit:
Multi-window which I do use.
Full web screen capture which I use a lot.
Multiple ways of sharing documents and media (NFC, bluetooth, etc. ) which I also use
More dynamic apps in Android: therefore much heavier apps with a potential to be much much more productive, polished and dynamic with overall higher quality over the limited iOS apps.(yes I've take and app development course).

IR blaster which I use a lot.
OTG file transfer which i use.
Access to the file system which is what i love the most about android. I use my to carry virtual documents and even have 3 of my college books in pdf form in special folders.

Customization on the way your phone looks. Instead of being forced to the same icons and layouts by a company

To name a few..
Should I go on? Because bow I'm the one having a hard time taking you serious?

with 3D Touch always on monitoring your input, i don't think it's that light on resource, it's just iOS is damn optimized, with much less fragmentation it's way easier to optimize.

what do you mean by productive on a small screen device?

for example, I recently got a different car insurance. Did everything online. I was sent some documents I needed to sign, I downloaded them right on my phone, signed them on my phone and sent them right back. Keeping records and everythign on my phone without ever printing anything or moving from where I was sitting.

I have full books on my phone and even c program exes save on my phone. I can plug ANY USB drive to my phone and get any type of document or media from anyone. Create a new folder and store it and everything is plug and play.

That is assuming they don't know how to use bluetooth transfer or NFC transfer.

Also forcetouch doen't reaquire much resources, It's just a bunch of change in rrecistance in very simple circuits activating simple code.

It's like saying. The power button is always monitoring in case you press it. It is doing that, but it doesnt take much resources at all.

so Note 5 has a 6 month old chipset.
while the device was released just 1 month before the iPhone 6S.
damn Samsung for using an old tech, i thought it is only Apple does that.

Please tell me, why A8X, which is used in Air 2 which is 1.5 years old now, has not been beaten by any other chip? It's not like Samsung doesn't make chips for tablets right?

If High-End Chipsets Are Released Within 6 Months Of Each Other Then They Should Be Compared Because Odds Are The Companies Working On Said Chips Probably Spent About The Same Amount Of Time Doing So.

Would be something to see the A-9 in a note 5 and the Exynos - 7420 inside the 6S+ then test to see how A-9 handles all the software , hardware and the screen difference..... I believe that the 7420 would have set enormous records in any test when installed in the 6S +... Just a thought lol.

I see what you're saying, but sometimes I feel that android users are trying to sell you a Swiss Army knife when all you're doing is building an idea coffee table. In essence it's nice to have all these features but if you really have the need for them you'll buy an android phone anyway. It looks like a lot of android OEMs promised too much this year and ended up disappointing, Apple however exceeded expectations. I don't think android 6.0 will be my year to change but I am hoping to see android 7.0 in my pocket with a 2016 nexus

AnTuTu is not a CPU-only benchmarking app. AnTuTu measures overall performance: CPU, GPU, RAM, Storage, UX... this 123k score is mostly due to the super fast storage of the 6S/6S Plus.
Heck, Android has, is, and always will be and remain my preference.
