AnTuTu 9 Benchmark

The AnTuTu 9 benchmark is very well suited to measuring the performance of a smartphone. AnTuTu 9 is quite heavy on 3D graphics and can now also use the "Metal" graphics interface. In AnTuTu, memory and UX (user experience) are also tested by simulating browser and app usage. AnTuTu version 9 can compare any ARM CPU running on Android or iOS. Devices may not be directly comparable when benchmarked on different operating systems.

In the AnTuTu 9 benchmark, the single-core performance of a processor is only slightly weighted. The rating is made up of the multi-core performance of the processor, the speed of the working memory, and the performance of the internal graphics.

Description of the processor

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 is a smartphone and tablet processor from Qualcomm. It is in the high-end segment and has 8 CPU cores that are designed in a hybrid core layout. This consists of a high-clocked Prime core (Kryo 585 Prime) that can reach a clock frequency of up to 2.84 GHz.

The Prime core is supported by 3 additional Kryo 585 Gold CPU cores with a clock frequency of up to 2.42 GHz. Four very energy-efficient Kryo 585 Silver CPU cores with a very low clock speed of 1.8 GHz round off the CPU layout at the bottom.

When it comes to AI acceleration, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 has the Qualcomm AI Engine. The manufacturer does not specify how quickly this solution is.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 uses an Adreno 650 for graphics. With 650 texture shaders and an FP32 graphics performance of almost 1.3 TFLOPS, the Qualcomm Adreno 650 can play all common 3D games on the smartphone smoothly. The clock frequency of the graphics reaches a maximum of approx. 0.6 GHz.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 can address up to 16 GB of RAM. The SoC has four 16-bit wide memory channels available for this purpose. Both the newer LPDDR5-5500 memory (maximum memory bandwidth 44 GB/s) and the older LPDDR4-4266 memory with a maximum memory bandwidth of 34.1 GB/s are supported.

The TDP (Thermal Design Power) of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 is around 10 watts. The manufacturer does not publish exact data, so this value was determined based on software data during benchmarks.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 is manufactured using a 7 nm process. The Level 2 cache is 1.75 MB in size and is supplemented by another 4 MB Level 3 cache. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 is still based on the ARM v8 architecture, which Qualcomm used under license and slightly adapted in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865.
