The Snapdragon 898 is on its way and the first GPU benchmarks of the upcoming Qualcomm chip have now been revealed. Peak performance is shown to be lower than on the Exynos 2200 but sustained performance should be similar thanks to lesser throttling.

Qualcomm is expected to debut its next-gen flagship SoC, the Snapdragon 898, later this year. Early CPU benchmarks surfaced a while ago but, for the first time yet, an idea of what to expect from the Snapdragon 898's GPU has now been revealed.

The Snapdragon 898 appears to underperform its two rivals, the upcoming Exynos 2200 and Apple 15 Bionic in the GPU department. The chipset clocks in at 158.4 FPS on Manhattan 3.1, 112.7 FPS on Aztec Normal, and 43.1 FPS on Aztec High. In comparison, the Exynos 2200, as seen on early tests, clocks 170.7 FPS, 121.4 FPS, and 51.5 FPS across those same tests, while the A15 Bionic finished off the Manhattan 3.1 test at 198 FPS. That shows about an 8% disadvantage versus the Exynos 2200, and about a 25% drop compared to the A15 Bionic.

Of course, peak performance isn't the only metric. Sustained performance is considered to be more important, and it appears Qualcomm manages to edge out its rivals in that department thanks to lesser throttling. According to Front Tron, this should ensure similar sustained performance when compared to the Exynos 2200. Exact figures are not provided for Qualcomm's offering but the Exynos 2200 and A15 Bionic suffer performance drops of about 25% and 35% respectively under sustained loads. The Snapdragon 898 likely throttles by around 20% in comparison.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
