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!

Apple haters before article: "Damn look at those benchmarks!!! Killing Apple"

Apple haters after article: "benchmarks don't matter"

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.)

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

Obviously newer will crush the older. You could say that A10 will crush the 820.

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

You mean newer chips are faster than older chips!?! No way!

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

New Apple > xyz product

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.

Wait for the A10. SD and Exynos won't stay on top for long. It goes both way.

Yeah But The A10 Is 10 Months Away And The A9 Is Only 3 Months Old And It's Already Going To Get Beat By The 820 And 8890 This January/February. So When You Think About The A9,820,8890 All Have About The Same Development Time. You Compare Chips Within 6 Months Of Each Other That's How It Works.

Going by your argument, 6 months from February is August, close to A10's release.

benchmark dont really matter, about 95% off all user only use their smartphone for light task like social media apps, an occacional web browsing, the remainig % are power users, which is where i belong...

A9 is really impressive!!

Though I still prefer Android open ecosystem.

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.

Nope, that's wrong

It's mostly due to the GPU performance.

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

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?

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

You represent .1% of users with your daily usage.

You're requirements demand a niche device friend.

The vast majority of users can and DO live without ALL of these features every day, thus devices without these features can be released WITHOUT fear because most features will remain unused and none of them are deal breakers for 99% of users.
