A new Snapdragon 8150 chipset is reportedly in works and it may be the fastest one yet beating the likes of the Kirin 980 and the A12 Bionic from Apple. A recent leak shows the AnTuTu benchmark score for the purported Snapdragon chip scoring an overall point of 362,292 ahead of the Kirin 980 with 273,913 points with the A12 Bionic coming close second at 353,210.
Looking further at the leak, it reveals the Snapdragon 8150 chipset will be coming with 1x high-performance core, 3x medium cores and 4x energy-efficient-low-performance cores. It has a high-performance CPU Cortex A-76 core which is clocked at a 2.84 GHz speed.
The other three medium Cortex A-76 ones are clocked at 2.4 GHz while the smaller Cortex-A55 cluster of four cores moves at 1.78 GHz. For the GPU score, the leak revealed 156,328 points. Approximately 20% increase in raw performance over the Adreno 630 found in the Snapdragon 845 which powers the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus.
No official confirmation yet but if the leaks are true this would see Qualcomm utilizing the ARM’s DynamiQ architecture which lets manufacturers pair different types of cores with various clock speeds into one cluster.
