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!
