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.)

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

The PDF thing - really? I sign off files (even pdf create and edit). on my iPhone all the time - I run a contractor business.

File thru USB? Are we still in the 90s? Everything is wireless today.

Here's what's important to me: ability to customize my apps to allow or disallow every single feature on those apps... Turn off iap buttons in my kid's apps so that they wouldn't even show an option for iap's.

You know what's more important to me than that: seeing when my kids leave school and when they get home. Ability to track my family members to isure I call them at the exact moment when they're at a certain location.

Do you know what else is important: my iPad and my iPhone to sync indefinitely and allow me to access the files I just created in a customers PC and print it out from their printer - instantly.

I want my phones music player to be insync with my 30 year old Porsche stereo. And access my music apps and radios that I created overtime thru my head.

There are more, like it's really nice to know which of my customers have iOS or android - because I know I can video call one and I don't have to wonder if they got skype, hangouts, whatsap, or w/e. Just FaceTime and they answer even if they never used it before. And then share their location so my phone can navigate instantly.

And I want all that above done using nothing but voice assistant and given information without the need to look at a screen.

But you go ahead find anyone who carries a damn hardrive with a usb cable with them.

You spent how much to do what my 70 buck machine could do? With a larger screen to boot.

not to mention, you phone wont be doing much with those .exe files, where my cheaper solution can.

Then I still get to carry my phone of choice, which can do nearly everything you said, and the new one can. So im not so sure if this is the power of 'android' or simply how you...use your device. you represent like someone said .1% of all phone users. Good for you and your device, but if you will never do it, nor know how to do it...then it is waste.

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.

so Note 5 has a 6 month old chipset.
while the device was released just 1 month before the iPhone 6S.

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?

131. elitewolverine (Posts: 5111; Member since: 28 Oct 2013)


it takes much longer than 6 months to push out a new chip, it takes 6 months just to get the contract and fabs right. Point? Both Samsung and Apple chips were most likely designed at the same time frame, the launch of their phone has nothing to do with the chip design or wait.

See the screenshot, it looks nothing like Antutu

It was a benchmark called Ludashi (aka Master Lu)

the meizu pro 5 got 54.000 on Ludashi benchmark,
galaxy s7 got 103.000 in the same test.
the meizu pro 5 gets 88.000 on antutu 6,so the galaxy s7 will get 176.000 on antutu 6, go home iphone 6s and s6 plus. samsung for te win

Apple has always offered top-shelf CPUs and GPUs as part of their SoCs. Samsungs Exynos is continually closing the gap though, can't wait to see their updates Exynos M1/8890 chipset output in a couple of months

The Denver K1 gets 106K, the A8X gets 99K

That doesn't make sense to me
The K1 is only slightly faster in single core CPU
The A8X significantly faster in multi core CPU
Their GPUs are about equal

Which is obvious since they are tablet SoCs with huge GPUs (literally twice the GPU of the A8)

It has been pretty reliable for me when comparing Android devices. Not to mention, it is consistently used on this website.
