Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform is run through another benchmark test?
Back in September, what appeared to be Qualcomm's next-generation Snapdragon 855 chipset was run through the Geekbench benchmark test. The single-core score was 3697 with the multi-core hitting 10469. Now it appears as though the chip was run through an updated version of the test (4.3.2 vs. 4.0.4) where it had a similar result (via GizmoChina). The latest scores were 3545 and 11150 for single-core and multi-core, respectively.

This test is used as a way to quantify and compare the performance of a CPU with others. Both tests were possibly run on the same device, employing the latest build of Google's open source operating system (Android 9 Pie), and carrying 6GB of RAM. The Snapdragon 855's octa-core CPU was tested at a clock speed of 1.78GHz both times. The chip is equipped with four energy efficient cores running at 1.78GHz, three cores handling more complex tasks that have a 2.42GHz clock speed, and a special core running at 2.84GHz for an extra performance boost. The Snapdragon 855 features the Adreno 640 graphics chip, and is built by TSMC using the 7nm process.

The current top-of-the-line chip, the Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform, was run through Geekbench last February scoring 2378 on the single-core test, and 8132 on the multi-core test. Thus, we can expect to see some noticeable improvements in performance with Qualcomm's latest SoC, which should be powering the U.S. version of the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+. Those two new flagship models could be unveiled during a Samsung event on February 20th.

At 1.7ghz , Does that mean it wasn't clocked at max frequently it does GeekBench just work like this ?

Geekbench reports the lowest clock speed which means the clockspeed of the little cluster.

No, the power core running at 2.84GHz was probably the one which gave that single core score. Just like everytime. Geekbench only reports the lowest frequency.

Multicore range between 10k-13k.

Wow, new info. Didn't know that.

Yep, sorry for not keeping you updated. Want me to break it down and help you understand? Lol

Qualcomm missed the mark by that much. Always playing catch up with Apple, always a year behind.

Actually beats the a12 in multicore and gpu, but ok.

Also modem. It's infinitely superior in Snapdragon. The one in Apple sucks.

That only happen because QUALCOMM released the 855 after the A12 smartphone! So what about last years 845? Did that beat the A11? But even with these benchmarks. Nobody is gonna depend on benchmarks, if the REAL WORLD USAGE is what people depend on nowadays.

The sd 845 absolutely beat the a11 on the gpu side. The gpu is evolving to even do task that the cpu does. Also there is always something going to release after something. Like the a13 beat the sd 855 only because the a13 released after and so on. Expect some mind blowing REAL WORLD USAGE from the sd855.

Mind blowing? LOL! Then why the NBA 2k19 didn't maintain the 60FPS on note 9 SD845? Even PUBG. It struggles to get 60FPS. And only gets 40 FPS at full graphics. "Expect mind blowing REAL WORLD USAGE from the sd855". And which app do you think gets better optimization on 855 if there isn't many apps that are optimized on 845 at 60FPS?

Yes overall as an SOC the S845 did beat the A11 in quite a few things. It's faster in graphics and sustained performance(this is why it scores higher in Atutu) and also has a much faster modem.

Yep and faster in physics simulation, which is a cpu-gpu task.

How does its performance compare to 850?
