An Asus ROG Phone 5 has been spotted again on Geekbench but this time around it was the 16 GB variant being put through its paces. In conjunction with the Snapdragon 888, the ROG Phone 5 was able to overtake the Android chart champion ROG Phone 3 in both single-core and multi-core benchmarks.

The Asus ROG Phone 5 is expected to be with us some time in either March or April, and it seems it will deliver the kind of incredible performance that gamers demand from this smartphone line. The ROG Phone 5 has already been discovered on Geekbench when an 8 GB model hammered out scores of 1,081 points (single) and 3,584 points (multi). The fellow Snapdragon 888-powered Asus phone with 16 GB RAM has now served up results of 1,131 points (single) and 3,729 points (multi).

Clearly having double the RAM assisted with pushing those scores higher in the 16 GB variant of the Asus ROG Phone 5, but the results also show what the Snapdragon 888 can offer when compared to previous generations. Although this result by the ROG Phone 5 should be considered a theoretical maximum until more units can be tested to forge an average score, it is still way beyond the Asus ROG Phone 3 and its Snapdragon 865+, the current Android single-core and multi-core champion.

The single-core average result for the ROG Phone 3 is 952 points, which means the benchmark by the ROG Phone 5 with its Snapdragon 888 is over +18.80% greater. As for the multi-core score, the upcoming 2021 gaming smartphone produces a result that is +14.84% over the 2020 ROG Phone 3. If future Geekbench runs by the Asus ROG Phone 5 can be just as fruitful then it won’t be too long before it becomes the new Android single-core and multi-core chart champion.
