Adreno 530 will also be crushed by Apple when it launches A10 chip.
DJP, 04 Feb 2016Its happens every year. We wait and see the apple takes the crown.No, when you compare mobile SoC in order to compare their performance you should always consider how long it kept the performance crown. Undoubtedly the A9 is a hell of a chip but it got dethroned in less than 6 months. If Qualcomm gets to keep the performance crown for more than 6 months that's Qualcomm's win. A year has 12 months so undoubtedly there will always be something new. Apple releases their products in the 2nd half whereas Qualcomm in the 1st half. Regards
apple iphone 6s plus L3 vs QSD820 V8 but car V8 vs car L4 vs car V6 vs car V10...normal fun info car engine
talkman, 04 Feb 2016crazy 48fps sd820 gpu but how sony ps 4 ??fpsMake Windows run on PS4 and find out :)
Anonymous, 04 Feb 2016Anandtech is a joke. Heavily Apple biased.And yet they still got the exact same results than any other site. Your life is a joke.
Lol, 04 Feb 2016Anandtech reviewed the 820 a long time ago already.Anandtech is a joke.
Heavily Apple biased.
mali T-880 MP12 will give similar results.
Though adreno 530 slightly faster
guest7, 04 Feb 2016Having 3 times the cores doesn't mean 3 times the performance . According to notebookcheck ad... morein all honesty this just proves how far android as an OS is realy pressing on hardware to enhance the abilities of phones and mobile computing as a whole. and the os has changed so much that it has now branched out to accommodate so many tasks and yet it remains so customisable. its a sad case when some companies choose to feed on a hand to mouth platform and nit even want to plant thier products property in the market. trully android will be a renowned platform in the future either as android or an iteration of it moded to suit the future needs. well played google trully outclassed the competition and they cant even see how this strategy will play out. a hand willing to give and gives is the hand that receives the most :)

According to notebookcheck adreno 530 and mali-t880MP12 have approximately the same scores with adreno 530 leading with 1 fps (49 vs 48) .
I still want to see if the 820 throttles or not. I know you can't compare a metal body iPhone and a plastic body Android in that case, so I'm hoping we will see a metal body Android with 820 soon.
skyzo97, 04 Feb 2016iPhone is not even FHD6S Plus is, and the benchmarks for that are pretty good.
lneam, 04 Feb 2016In this tests (we read here in GSMARENA) they use Huawei Mate 8 Mali-T880 MP4. MP4 = 4 cores.... moreWrong, you can't just multiply the scores like that. There are other bottlenecks, like memory bandwidth, that such simple math is not taking into account.
vikass17, 04 Feb 2016Somehow nvidia was always first, they reached these scores in 1 year old gpuThe nVIDIA SoC has a higher TDP, it's not suitable for smartphone use.

Anonymous, 04 Feb 2016Higher than iphone 6s gpu? Iphone each year has best gpu GPU, now sd820 is the king, this year... moreOptimisation also plays an important role, with the Metal API, developers for iOS can squeeze more raw performance out of a GPU.
But this 530 is really shaping up to be a monster, Ever since the 320, Qualcomm have really upped their game.
Sean Lumly, 04 Feb 2016These scores have been on GFXBench for quite some time, but yes, they are quite impressive! I ... moreIn this tests (we read here in GSMARENA) they use Huawei Mate 8 Mali-T880 MP4.
MP4 = 4 cores. But Exynos 8 Octa 8890 has MP12 =12cores. I don't know the speed in mate 8 but exynos has 700MHz. So if we multiply the results x3 at the same speed the truth is that Exynos is a bit better.
