The performance of the processor directly determines the use experience of the device. No matter for mobile phones or tablets, CPU performance is a parameter that cannot be ignored. At present, the mainstream mobile chip is mainly divided into Apple, Qualcomm, Mediatek, Kirin and Samsung, the products of these five manufacturers are also widely used in a variety of mobile phones and tablets.
Qualcomm officially launched its latest flagship chip, the Snapdragon 8Gen1, in December, and it’s also being used in flagship phones. Before mediatek’s Breguet 9000 officially debuted, snapdragon 8Gen1 was the most powerful chip in the Android camp.
According to the measured data of specific models, this generation of Snapdragon 8Gen1 does not have much improvement in CPU performance, and the significant improvement is mainly in GPU graphics performance and AI performance. Unfortunately, the performance of this generation of Snapdragon 8Gen1 is still average in terms of power consumption and heat consumption. It can be seen from the various competitions in the heat dissipation of Snapdragon 8 flagship, and the overall energy efficiency is not as good as Snapdragon 888. It can be said that Snapdragon 8 has been upgraded but not completely upgraded, and a more perfect Snapdragon 8 needs to wait for the version of TSMC technology
So from the overall performance of the whole mobile chip, how does android’s strongest Snapdragon 8 chip perform? Geekbay’s performance ladder gives you a sense of how each processor performs.
In the CPU performance list, Snapdragon 8 is at number 8. It can be seen that the latest Snapdragon 8 has basically no improvement in CPU performance compared with the previous generation of Snapdragon 888, and the overall performance is still far behind Apple A14, especially the latest A15 chip. Apple is the undisputed leader in mobile chips
In the aspect of GPU graphics performance, thanks to the new architecture design, Snapdragon 8 makes a comeback, surpassing apple A14 last year, but there is still a big gap between the latest Apple A15. Apple does not emphasize performance, but the industry is aware of its strength.
Apple’s latest iPad Pro is equipped with computer-level M1 chip for the first time, which makes M1 chip the most powerful chip in mobile terminals and the king of mobile device performance far beyond the various processors in mobile terminals. How would Qualcomm and other chip makers feel if Apple put the M chip directly into the iPhone?
