AI has become the new part of the flagship chipsets in the market. While we have big AI players like Apple and Samsung in the market, Qualcomm wants to take the spot of the best AI on the ARM chipsets out there. The all-new Snapdragon 8150 from Qualcomm claim the top spot, at least in Android-land.
A few tests from the dev platform claims that the Snapdragon 8150 performs 2X better than the old SD845 chipset. According to the benchmarks, it is an even match to Huawei’s latest Kirin 980. Interestingly, the Kirin 980 is a 2X bump up over the Kirin 970, but the benchmarks show only 15% bump. The case is different for SD 8150 where the numbers are double in comparison to its predecessor.
Interestingly, there seems to be a wide gap between the AI on the Oneplus 6 and the Pixel 3. Well, both the handset have the same SD 845 SoC, but the number may differ because of the dedicated core that handles the image processing magic on the Pixel 3. So, these scores are somewhat questionable.
To our surprise, the MediaTek’s helio P80 is on the second place. Well, the SoC performs a way higher than the SD 845, and it’s just ever so slightly closer to the SD 8150. According to these benchmarks, there is a massive 200% boost on Helio P80 in comparison to the P70 SoC.
