Another smartphone from Xiaomi has reportedly already broken the AnTuTu benchmark record recently set by the Chinese manufacturer’s Mi 10 Pro. The latest smartphone to snatch the performance crown is the upcoming Black Shark 3 Pro 5G device, which made good use of its Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC to reach a new high score of 620,952 points.

Xiaomi has been having a fine old time running its smartphones on the AnTuTu benchmark. Not only did the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro manage a very decent score lately (although with the help of a software update and a particularly favorable setting), the Black Shark 3 Pro 5G has now also become the cream of the crop thanks to the Snapdragon 865 that it sports.

According to a post on Weibo made by Black Shark’s CEO, the Black Shark 3 Pro 5G gaming smartphone managed to rack up a score of 620,952 points on AnTuTu. This is not the first time an SD 865-based smartphone has delivered the goods with this particular benchmark: There is the above-mentioned Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro and not long ago we reported about a Realme device (Realme X50 Pro) scoring over 574,000 points.

Looking at the current AnTuTu v8 chart for January 2020 gives a good idea at just how much performance smartphones with a Snapdragon 865 can offer in comparison with devices utilizing older SoCs. For instance, the chart champion on show is the Asus ROG Phone 2 on 507,051 points, and of course that gaming smartphone comes with a Snapdragon 855 Plus chip. The Xiaomi Black Shark 3 Pro 5G (along with the regular Black Shark 3) is expected to be launched on March 3.
