Snapdragon 820 SoC scores a split decision on Geekbench benchmark test
While we can't always rely on a benchmark test to provide real world results, the Snapdragon 820 scored high on Geekbench's single-core test. The tally of 1887 outscored the 1508 produced by the Exynos 7420 SoC, which powers the Samsung Galaxy Note5. But it was well short of the 2526 produced by the A9 running an Apple iPhone 6s.
The multi-core score for the Snapdragon 820 was 3936, which falls short of the 4811 achieved by the Exynos 7420, and the A9's 4396. It even falls short of the 4628 multi-core score produced by the Snapdragon 810's Geekbench test. While the single-core score is considered more important, since most apps use a single-core, it still could be that Qualcomm is working on the chip, and it is not yet in its final form.
Thanks for the tip!
