Which chipset is ranked number one by AnTuTu, the Apple A9 or the Snapdragon 820?

Which chipset is ranked number one by AnTuTu, the Apple A9 or the Snapdragon 820?
Earlier today, we passed along the results of both CPU-centric and GPU-centric benchmark tests run on a number of chipsets, and turned into lists and graphs by XDA. Now, benchmark site AnTuTu has posted a list showing the top ten smartphone chipsets in order of how they scored on AnTuTu's CPU and GPU benchmark tests. For example, the top ranked SoC based on the CPU test results, was the Snapdragon 820 which scored 136,383.

Qualcomm's latest and greatest edged out the Apple A9 chipset, which rang up a tally of 132,657. And not far behind was the Exynos 8890. Samsung's new SoC, which powers the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, finished third with a score of 129,865. The Kirin 950, Huawei's current top-of-the-line chipset, finished next; wrapping up the top five was the chip that drives Samsung's last-generation top shelf models, the Exynos 7420. Those two produced AnTuTu scores of 92,746 and 86,652 respectively.

Qualcomm's previous high-end SoC, the heat generating Snapdragon 810, was sixth with an AnTuTu score of 81,049. The Snapdragon 652 (7th, 79,636), Apple A8 (8th, 79,100), Snapdragon 650 (9th, 78,979) and the Snapdragon 808 (10th, 68,505) rounded out the bottom half of the list.

Looking at GPU performance on these chipsets, the Adreno 530 GPU carried by the Snapdragon 820 was on top by a wide margin. Its score of 55,098 crushed the 39,104 put up by the A9's PowerVR GT7600 GPU. The Mali-T880 MP12 GPU used with the Exynos 8890 was third with a tally of 37,545.

AnTuTU says that both lists use average scores computed from the results of multiple tests. Overall, the Snapdragon 820 SoC finished on top of both lists. It would appear that Qualcomm has its groove back after a year that they would rather forget about.

The Snapdragon 820 powers, among other, variants of the Samsung Galaxy S7, the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, the LG G5, the Sony Xperia X Performance, the Vivo Xplay5S, and the Xiaomi Mi 5.

SD 820 is seemingly a beast.. Wonder what Samsung is cooking in regards to it's exynos...

The sd 820 is doing good on the scores due to all the 1080p phones like sony

SD820 S7 destroy the Exynos version. Stop been a fanboy. The GPU in the 820 is what really is gaming graphic. And thats after several test so heat is a non issue. Poor Exynos fan :P

Everyone knows that QC is cheating in 3D benches.

You mean like the iPhone where the 6s plus has a 1080p screen and the 6s doesn't even?

what does the screen size got to do with the CPU benchmarks?

BTW guys Antutu v6.0 ignores multi core CPU performance e.g. The Denver K1 scores higher than the A8X now in v6.0 The Denver K1 is about 5% faster in single core The A8X is about 40% faster in multi core (A8X is a tri core, the Denver K1 is a dual core) They are about equal in GPU Another example is the SD 652 vs SD 650 The 652 has 2 extra A72 cores, yet it scores about the same So Antutu v6.0 is still very very unreliable, both single and multi core CPU performance are equally important

Agree, AnTuTu has lost its charm, at least for Android workloads which are more depending on multi-core performance. Geekbench is better.

Geekbench sucks for multi-core performance.

Antutu was and will be the worst benchmark ever.

dont change the fact thats the GPU in the SD820 is nearly twice faster than what in the exynos. Stop searching excuses! As for CPU scoore well even a SD615 has enuf CPU to run everything smoothly so what we need is more efficient CPU and faster GPU wich qualcomm delivered!

twice? LOOOOOOOOOOL

Why not 10x? Is it hard to be a biased QC fanboy?

I didn't know Apple was the name of a chip-set.

SD810 can reach 110K with HTC M9 in MM 6.0.1 , or because its htc you guys don't count it.?

That's a bug genius. That score comes in red colour as the NAND test is broken. A validated antutu score should come in green colour. This bug affects all marshmallow devices running on an tutu 6. Anyone with half a brain should know about that. But I guess since for someone to run antutu, he shouldn't have half a brain.

Claiming AnTuTu to be dumb and XDA Forum to be reliable! Boy, you must be smart.

Not sure if trolling or stupid. Or both.

I agree with you about the antutu thing, and I just know about the bug. THANKS :)

50. tyrionTheWise unregistered

Sorry for being harsh but it's hard to separate hardcore fanboys from normal people. But yeah, antutu is the least reliable benchmark out there. You should have thought that how can the hardware performance jump 50% by a software update.

Also the HTC One M9 scoring better than 7420 and Kirin 950, that's just crazy to believe in and also additionally even among the 810 devices, it is using the oldest version of the 810.
