Newer versions provide much higher results for the same SoCs tested.
Test with same version.
Geekbench kirin 960 ~ single and multicore about the same as SD835. SD660 ~ SD820.
With latest antutu, kirin 960 also has higher score than SD660.

Let's get ready for the September Launch event of Mi Note 4.This time,main 📷 may be Sony IMX 363,with dual pixel PDAF(1.4micron pixels) & front camera Maybe with IMX 376(4into 1 pixel binning)
If 600 this year focuses to ai
And 700 series focuses in ar and ai
So 800 series in what ? To much marketing. Try to talk less affords more snapyy. Why you so lame kick by apple, samsung and now whit huawei...please do not do drama to much....make a better cpu for daily usage and gaming.

Companies should really try to get naming conventions better.
AI and Image processing seems like additions, that are better done by adding letters to tell about their extended functionality. That way it could be sold as a feature, no matter what series the chips belong to.
And really, all series should match in terms of the numbers, when they are at the same generation.
It is all a mess now.
If it was 860, 760, 660... it would be easy to assume that the first number indicates that is belongs to a higher end series and thus there should be a substantial difference in performance. 660 sounds like it is a much later generation compared to 845 and 710, thus meaning that perhaps it has caught up some in performance, despite belonging to a lower end series.
Arif238, 24 May 2018I play just one game Modern Combat 5. Is it worth having?
Don't know. I don't play any games on my phones :)
Perhaps you can find some youtube reviews of people playing this game on kirin 960.
AnonD-445642, 24 May 2018AR and AI - more fancy label "features" from Silicon Valley that nobody asked or wanted. Greed... moreIndeed. Sony calls AI in photography "Superior Auto Mode".
Also none o/t current device do actual machine learning. It's all algorithmic based logic. Everything is based on build in and strict defined parameters. While true AI creates new parameters by itself.
Not that I complain. Sure, phones have more scene-detection modes and chooses better/faster between them and they have better (artificial) noise reduction. So if the images improve then why do we complain, right?
It's essentially the same as Tesla calling it's Driver-assist "Auto Pilot". It's not a true auto-pilot (yet) but it does help.
"Snapdragon 710 promises 40% better power efficiency" :D
generaly for any use 40%?
and unless the promise be kept and what?
every new generation chip is reportedly much better and 40% faster :D
Arif238, 24 May 2018Well that is highly unlikely because if Kirin 960 has throttling issues then it should also th... moreNo throttling on GPU?
Read in depth anandtech review of Kirin 960. https://www.anandtech.com/show/11088/hisilicon-kirin-960-performance-and-power/5
"The Mate 9 only maintains peak performance for about 1 minute (34fps) before reducing GPU frequency, dropping frame rate to 21fps after 8 minutes, a 38% reduction relative to the peak value. It reaches equilibrium after about 30 minutes, with frame rate hovering around 19fps"
From 34fps to 19fps. That's almost 50% throttling (after 30 minutes).
Doesn't matter though if you don't play for hours heavy games..
