Snapdragon 820 SoC scores a whopping 83,774 on AnTuTu benchmark test

Snapdragon 820 produces a whopping 83,774 on AnTuTu

A device called the Green Orange X1 Pro, running the Snapdragon 820, ran up an AnTuTu score of 83,774. If there is one thing that might have helped Qualcomm's upcoming high-end SoC rack up that score, it is the fact that the device it was powering had a 1080 x 1920 resolution on its screen instead of the 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution display that might have lowered the tally.

The Snapdragon 820 features Qualcomm's own 64-bit ARM based Kryo CPUs. Qualcomm says that the Snapdragon 820 will offer twice the performance and power efficiency found on the Snapdragon 810 chip. The first phone to come to market carrying the new chipset is rumored to be the Xiaomi Mi 5, which is expected to be released in March.

Meanwhile, the specs of the Green Orange X1 Pro include the aforementioned 1080 x 1920 resolution screen (of an unknown size), a 16MP rear camera, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage. Android 4.4.2 is pre-installed.

As we mentioned earlier today, the Snapdragon 820, which has an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU, faces competition from MediaTek's Helio X20 chipset, which includes a deca-core CPU.

Thanks for the tip!

Don't worry guys. Galaxy S7 will come with SD820 too..

Every Snapdragon I have since dual-core Snapdragon S3 was heating as hell...I think new Exynos will be better than SD820, at least in trottling/heating

Must be damn low end! I don't experience lag at all with my Note Pro 12.2, Tab S 8.4, Note 3, Note 2, Galaxy Tab 7.7.

Lag and me has never been friend. Though there some clean up must be done. Ever disable unwanted apps? Bloatware King! Yes! I fully agree, lag no.

I have a Note 12.2 with the SD800 and it most certainly does lag. I have also disabled all apps I could and deleted stuff I could.

I had the Note 3, it had times of lag. None of them lag all the time, but it does happen.

Anyway, i am done with Samsung. Don't see myself buying another Samsung device.

Every time i buy Samsung is happy to frustration after the first boot up. Wow! Over 20-30 third parties unrelated apps. Some can't even be disabled. No such problem with my XiaoMi phone. In fact I am impress with XiaoMi Theme Store and App permission manager that allow me to restrict app access to my phone contact, sms, location, camera and every aspect of my phone.

Hopefully Samsung would get these permission feature with Android M. XiaoMi has it since Jelly Bean.

It will lag if its on a Samsung device, they always manage to make their phones lag no matter how great the hardware is.

So what if it lags. It lags because it actually does something. If the device you do doesn't lag, than it means it isnt doing much to tax resources.

May want to consider what you paid vs what you ended up with.

For examples, Apple devices don't lag very much in the past...but they do now. But they do now because the UI is a mess. Even with the most simplest of features, the experience is dull and boring.

The problem with you Android haters is that, the cost to add more features to a device and make them seemless is much harder. But considering Samsung devices for example do way more, a bit of stutter isnt a big deal like you fools make it out to be. After all, all computers lag whether you see it or not. Nothing every happens instantly.

If your only point is criticizing small pointless thinsg vs the bigger picture, why should eb take you seriously? Its just stupid.

How about this. Yes one con of Samsung device sis some of them do lag.

But considering with that little bit of lag, I get the top of the like hardware and not 5 year old outdate hardware, i get up-to-date styling, I get the latest advances of Android and additional features that TouchWiz brings that no other devices have.

I dont give a sh!t about popularity, status symbol or jewelry pretending to be technology.

The problem with people like you? So superficial.

Just curious, I am sure your significant other hands flaws too, do you spend every day tell her how laggy she is?

Only a fool would focus on a couple bad things when you have 98 pros to focus on. No device is perfect I dont care who makes it.

Why dont you stop lagging on the brain.

I don't hate android, don't make that mistake. Android is simply the inferior platform. Its inefficient with system resources and lags and "stutters" no matter the hardware its on. Android is also less secure, however IOS is the least secure platform. IOS and Android are equally inefficient with system resources and lag the same(in my experience). Can Android be saved from it's poor coding that makes it more vulnerable and far less efficient? Yes, its possible, but it would be a massive undertaking and would take longer than a year to fix. Pushing out an OS update every year works, however that doesn't allow enough time for best optimization.

If it ran at 1080P it still wouldn't get a 14k score boost, that be a performance increase of 20%, bascislly what OEMs promise which each new generation of CPU.

Considering the Exynos in S6 is an octa core cpu while Snapdragon 820 is expected to be a quad core one which makes hell lot of difference in antutu benchmarks. Snapdragon leaves exynos in dust. I am surprised no one took that in account.

Probably you are true but Exynos octacore processor doesn't run all 8 cores at a time, I think all 4 big cores performs for heavy tasks are used during these benchmarks. So it won't be a problem for Exynos.

Anybody correct me if I'm wrong.

You are not wrong, Exynos is a much better performer than the SnapDragon.

Your both right and wrong
Wrong as all 8 cores can run at the same time
Right as the 4 A53s are there for efficiency

The A53 do seem to help in antutu
But in terms of "real world peak performance" its still basically 4 A57s vs 4 Kyros

Yeah but remember when the octa core socs run all cores they'll overheat they surely get more scores on benchmarks but that won't effect the real world performance.
I also should mention of helio x20/or x... Runs all cores it will overheat and have no efficiency and if user only one cluster at a time it couldn't even compete with other socs.

Lets see what the 820 benchmarks when its in an actual living device sold in the market. If I'm not wrong Qualcomm hyped the 810 up to the max as well..

And its a quadcore.. because you know, Qualcomm have no idea how to make Octocores work LOL....

820 is really just a stop gap to save their asses..

Not much surprise here. We are looking at a potential SoC for next year flagships.
Exynos 7420, released 6 months ago scores around 70K, so its expected out of the nexy year chipsets to cross 80K.

If Mongoose cores are ready, then expect exynos to score around 90K.
If so, Snapdragon 820 may find it difficult to re enter Samsung flagship phones.

I really don't understand why manufactures are so busy making more and more unnecessary powerful Soc .
I wish they invest more to make the battery life better .
I still remember those Nokia Basic phones which has an avarage battery life of 4-5 days .
I still have one , carry it with my smartphone only because of reliable battery life. .
Smartphone with excellant battery life today lasts for 1.5 day with a bit heavy use .

Do you remember the Galaxy S5? it had 1080p and 1440p version and battery life on both models was pretty much the same.

Resolution doesn't effect battery life nearly as much as the backlight does. You can go from 1080p to 1440p to 2160p ("4k") with minimal battery life impact. Sure, it'll decrease the battery life by minute amounts due to the need for more pixel switching, but the overall impact isn't as big as every seems to think. It's a very common misconception.

16. Carl3000 (Posts: 152; Member since: 11 Oct 2014)


Google the truth about SD810 people. The truth why it overheats is because the big.LITTLE architecture and the constant switching of cores and voltages from heavy to light loads too often. This is why EVERY big.LITTLE CPU overheats and throttles more than often, yes even the E7420, go to YouTube you'll find dozens of videos about the truth and GS6 overheating.

This is why Qualcomm is going back to Quad-Core (The 805 outperforms the 810 honestly) and they're dropping big.LITTLE development.

48. Shocky (Posts: 2063; Member since: 16 May 2012)


It was Qualcomms first SoC using big.LITTLE, Samsung thankfully had some experience and Exynos 7420 doesn't throttle as much, largely thanks to 14nm.

Google it, SN810 throttles quite a bit more. :)

So it's good to skip those with S810 and wait for S820.

ok for all the people saying that thats not an impresive score you need to realize its running android 4.4.2 which means its either running dalvick or the pre alpha of ART that came to kit kat, this on android 6.0 and having ufs 2.0 will probably reach 90k or better

I'm actually quite surprised that they don't get that. Screen resolution is factored into the score in such a way that even though higher resolutions may yield lower frame rates, the higher resolutions are part of the score so they balance out. Kind of like how 4000 (higher resolution) x 4 (lower frame rate) = 1000 (lower resolution) x 16 (higher frame rate).

AnTuTu doesnt care about resolution so that can be compared, then there are several other reasons why AnTuTu is a horrible benchmarking app. As for GFXBench you have off-screen results which renders at 1080p, so all SoCs get to do the same work and you can compare off-screen results to see how good the SoC is.

Well if you compare 720p resolution with 1440p in 3d and 2d benchmark of antutu there will be a pretty good difference which will give better overall score (720p) vs lower overall score (1440p)

And sammy work for an improvment version on S820... So we expect higher score than 84000, around 90k-95k (10%-15% improvments)
