Snapdragon 820 gets benchmarked, hits a whopping 83,774 AnTuTu points


Are you ready for more benchmarks? Today we’ve got a early look in the punctuation reached by the unreleased Snapdragon 820, and the result is impressive.

The high scores achieved by the chipset, give us a good taste about the overall performance that could be reached by the handsets equipped with this SoC. The test was made with a device called Green Orange X1 Pro, that get leaked at Weibo. The device packs a impressive set of specifications, as of course the Snapdragon 820, with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, and a main rear camera of 16MP.

Although we don’t have any clue about the size of the phone, it has a standard resolution of 1980x1080p, from this we can justify such a high score achieved by the handset. Theoretically, a device with a higher resolution would achieve a smaller score, since the additional pixels would require more work of the SoC and GPU.

The test also was performed with the device running Android Kitkat 4.4.2, that despite being lighter than the current Android version, Lollipop, does not make an absolute use of what the chipset can offer since it is a processor based on 64-bit that is fully supported from 5.0.

2015 will surely be a year that Qualcomm wants to forget. The Snapdragon 810 was an assumed failure, virtually all devices that use it have a flaw with performance and heating here or there, in the medium or long term. So the company lost ground for competition against the likes of MediaTek. The first Snapdragon 820 phones are expected towards the end of this year or early 2016, with the promise to make the Qualcomm’s top offerings cool again, to compete with other very good upcoming SoCs, as the Mediatek Helio X20 and Huawei Kirin 950.

      possible makes you a coffee all by itself , with the upcoming advanced heating algorithms coded in this chip 😀

    That score is for a full HD (1920 X 1080) resolution mind you, not 2560 X 1440. Things would have been different with a higher resolution. Also I assume that this was tested on LPDDR4 RAM.

      Full HD is standard resolution, 2K is (almost) unnecessary shit. That is why benchmark is in Full HD.

    Nice score for desktop processor.

    Good score, though i hope to see Samsung’s Mongoose next year.

    Antutu is very cheat-able, what about Geekbench scores? I only believe them (from the popular benchmarks).

    You forgot to mention the new antivirus technology zeroth that is Incorporated in the new chip

      You mean the new NSA tracking device?

        if you did not know this, but all phones have that already

        would like to see your comment if it was a mediatec chip

    but phones with SD chips are so TERRIBLY over priced and expensive :/

    • Chico Migraña

      What about iPhones and Galaxy S?

      • Muhammad Yasir
        September 3, 2015

        they are like major and i mean MAJOR exceptions … people are willing to pay like anything CRAZY for those two brands … so they price them a/c to their pleasure…

    It melts after the first benchmark.

    Now that’s a Snapdragon!

    On a serious note, do we really need such computing power on our cellphones?

      September 3, 2015

      No, but it adverises well so fanboys will buy it for no reason

    • September 3, 2015

      I was just wondering same. We definitely dont need to model, animate and render realistic 3D graphics with our smartphones. I dont know where this industry is heading to.

        Hey, I was just passing by and I think you should know there’s a VR revolution out there? Maybe you should check that out.

          a VR revolution on phones ? oh boy oh boy oh boy…. can’t wait to see the caller rendered in my 3D glasses instead of simply reading his name and seeing his photo on my screen when i receive a phone call ! can’t wait neither for the next facebook GUI rendered in 3D, so i can scroll thru posts like Tom Cruise in Minority Report.

      of course not, but you see people who spend time on facebook, twitter, instagram need a lot of power… Apparently

      I respond to Xalis, but this regards all of you that has answered his/her comment so far, with the exception of “fangbanger”.

      This will come off as rude, but I do not know how else to say this.
      I can’t help laughing everytime I see people question the need for technological progression.
      I think what adds to the humor is the fact there are sooo many of you who are so incredibly short sighted.
      I really wish I could keep tabs on everyone of you, so that I would know exactly who will have to answer for what they have said. Either way I will laugh… If I were to remember everyone individually, I could also point at you while laughing.

      Using your argument in the 90’s:
      Do phones really need a screen in colour? Is it really so important for reading/writing an SMS, changing settings, browsing your call log and playing “Snake”?

      That set phones on a path to having slower booting times and worse battery life each year.
      Technically the old Nokia 3310 boots way faster, compared to smartphones, while it has a battery life that can last up to a week.
      Do you mean we should go back to that or do you mean that it is perfect as it is now and you seriously lack the imagination to see phones becoming more than what you currently think they are?

      5 years ago I thought that phones were rapidly becoming powerful enough to rival low end PCs and realized that having everything in one device is the future.
      3 years ago I started using my phone as my main computer. It was a first gen Samsung Galaxy Note. It had MHL to connect it to a TV/screen and I could connect a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard to it (Android already had native support for it, with mouse cursor and everything). I still use an Android phone like this today (Xperia Z Ultra) and have not even owned a PC since then.

      That was then and you guys can’t see this development yet, even in the foreseeable future?
      Wow, you guys are so comically stuck, that it almost is unbearable.

      Phones has the native functionality and performance comparable to PCs that suffices for 99,99% of the population, costs about the same and you are still paying for both a phone and a PC?
      Your money…

      Their performance is comparable to last gen game consoles and will likely surpass current gen game consoles before their lifetime is over, if this progression continues. Most console gamers only own one console. Seeing as most of them also own a smartphone; making smartphones a competent gaming platform would make a dedicated console redundant for them, thus saving them a lot of money. Again, that is only achievable if progression continues.

      I know that most people have a complete lack of creative thinking.
      I just keep underestimating how many of you there are.

    Bum ! But seriously, I need to know the results on a 4k screen running VR on Android 5.1. That’s all I care about for my next phone.
