Natural Selection, 07 Jul 2018very good work and i agree with most of it.but a midrage GPU like Adreno 506 is still no match... moreYes, IPC means single-core performance in layman's terms.
That's also true, the Snapdragon 805's GPU is much more powerful than the Snapdragon 625's.
So there really is no point for someone with a QSD 805 handset (example a Samsung NOTE 4) to try and upgrade there device to something with a QSD 625 (example a Xiaomi Redmi Note 5). Its a side-grade at best, but realistically, its a downgrade. So what I'm saying is that you CANNOT trust synthetic benchmarks alone (and out of context) to decide which phone is better.
Case in point, the LG G7 screams at the synthetic benchmarks but cannot play Nintendo Wii emulator games properly... whereas the Google Pixel 2XL has a much lower synthetic benchmark yet it actually runs the emulator more smoothly. Its a case of better software taking advantage of the hardware that's under the skin. So yeah, don't trust simple benchmarks alone.
Kangal, 02 Jul 2018Alright, you asked and so here it is.
This is based on "Overall Performance". Importance was... morevery good work and i agree with most of it.but a midrage GPU like Adreno 506 is still no match for a GPU inside the flagship SOC like Snapdragon 805 and its Adreno 420Â’s.A420 almost outperforms it 3 times.
and then again do the IPC mean single core performance or related somhow to it?if so i think in top of the chart samsung top tier SOC most just outperform by appleÂ’s.
Natural Selection, 27 May 2018new edition of this plezzzzAlright, you asked and so here it is.
This is based on "Overall Performance". Importance was given to IPC, then GPU, then multicore performance, then battery efficiency. So it can't be judged by a simple benchmark like Geekbench which is very misleading, this list is far more accurate, precise, and useful as it takes in practical/real-world performance into account. As an example, an efficient and fast quadcore will outperform a less efficient and slower octacore. I've limited it to the high-end and midrange SoC's, all Quadcores, and didn't go past 2012 (seemed redundant to do so). However I've not included MediaTek chipsets since they are very confusing, and frankly aren't worth mentioning for their GPL-infractions, developer hostility, bans overseas, impeaching patents and licences held by and not paid to the rightful holders. I have no qualms including them, because I'm not a fanboy of any company I simply admire a product based on its merits, and not the logo.
QSD 400 (Krait S4 Pro)
*The 2016 low-end Snapdragon 625 (along with the refreshed 626 and 630) can beat the 2014 flagship QSD 805 when it comes to multicore performance, almost match it for graphics, beats it in battery life, whilst supporting 64-bit applications... however its rated lower because the QSD 625 has a much lower IPC than the QSD 805 when comparing the in-order small Cortex A53 cores to the out-of-order large Krait 450 cores (which is similar to ARM Cortex A17 core architecture).
**Tegra X1 wasn't included because its not a chip for phones, but for TV Consoles or Tablets. The Snapdragon 810 and 808 were rated much lower than benchmarks suggest because they throttle quickly, drain battery very fast, and generate heat. Also not suitable for a phone like the SONY Z5 Compact but instead a tablet like the Nexus 9.
This article is so helpful! Please update this article to the latest.
Please make the update as promised. Congratulations for this very useful information. Suggetstion: Getting one way to compare with the Apple Chipsets too.
You guys promised to keep it updated - in the article. We would really appreciate an update as dozens of chipsets have been released meantime.
Time to get it updated cause there has been a few new chips introduced in the market.
Firstly, great article. Very informative. Secondly, can you guys do a gpu comparison as well?
A great article for quick comparison of different chipsets. Keep up the good work!
Wow!! Excellent article.
Please include some information about Apple chip-sets too.
Any update for this article? Specially the 4th part and the comparison with all the chip-sets since we got the new snapdragon and the new Helio.
Thank you for a wonderful job!
May you please update this clever article with the new chipsets on the market? Why not try some way to include the Apple chipsets too? It would be fair for users to know very well all options.
