AnTuTu 8 Benchmark

The AnTuTu 8 Benchmark measures the performance of a SoC. AnTuTu benchmarks the CPU, GPU, Memory as well as the UX (User Experience) by simulating browser and app usage. AnTuTu can benchmark any ARM CPU that runs under Android or iOS. Devices may not be directly compareable if the benchmark has been performed under different operating systems.

In the AnTuTu 8 benchmark, the single-core performance of a processor is only slightly weighted. The evaluation consists of the multi-core performance of the processor, the speed of the RAM and the performance of the internal graphics.

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.

The Snapdragon 888 from Qualcomm is an eighth-generation mobile processor based on a Prime / big.LITTLE architecture. This means that the processor has 3 different core types available. It starts with the high-performance Prime core (Kryo 680 Prime), which is installed here and has a clock frequency of 2.84 gigahertz. This is followed by the 3 performance or prime cores (Kryo 680 Gold), which clock at 2.42 gigahertz, and the conclusion is formed by the 4 efficiency or LITTLE cores (Kryo 680 Silver), which clock at 1.80 clock gigahertz. Depending on the required performance, the corresponding cores are used. The point of it all is that if only a little computing power is required, only the lower-performing cores are used to save power and thus extend the battery life of the device in which the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 is used.

In benchmark Geekbench 5, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 achieves a single-core score of 1102 points and in the multi-core benchmark it is 3540 points.

The in-house Qualcomm Adreno 660 is used as the internal graphics unit in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. Unfortunately, not all details are known about this graphics unit, but it is certain that it is manufactured using the 5-nanometer process and that the clock frequency is 840 megahertz.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 supports LPDDR4X-4266 and the more modern LPDDR5-3200 type RAM. The size of the main memory depends on the device, but unfortunately Qualcomm does not specify a maximum size.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 came out in the first quarter of 2021 and is a very popular processor. You can see that from the fact that it is used in many devices. Here are a few examples: Oppo K10 Pro, OnePlus 9RT, ASUS Zenfone 8, Samsung Galaxy S21 FE5G or the Huawei P50 Pro.
