This is an early sample so performance could improve by launch time, but the Geekbench results show that it is lagging behind the Apple A14 Bionic, especially in single-core tests. The integrated Adreno 730 GPU is also said to be slower than the AMD RDNA2 GPU from the Samsung Exynos 2200.

The Snapdragon 888 successor currently known as SM8450 already had its key specs leaked a month ago by reliable sources close to Even Blass, but, back then, there was no concrete info regarding the core cluster configuration. A new leak coming from Twitter user FrontTron is translating a Weibo  post that reveals additional core details plus preliminary Geekbench results and it even compares the new Adreno 730 GPU to the AMD RDAN2 model integrated in the upcoming Samsung Exynos 2200.

As far as the core cluster is concerned, the SM8450 that is expected to be officially known as the Snapdragon 895 integrates one Kryo 780 “big” core based on the ARM Cortex-X2, three Kryo 780 “middle” cores based on the ARM Cortex-A710, and four Kryo 780 “little” cores based on the ARM Cortex-A510. The Weibo post further separates the little cores into two clusters, so two of these might get higher frequencies. Performance-wise, the Snapdragon 895 appears to be almost as fast as an Apple A14 Bionic in multi-thread tests (4000 vs 4027 points in Geekbench), but is still significantly behind in single-core tests (1250 vs 1596 points).

The Weibo post also mentions that the upcoming Qualcomm SoC supports 100 W fast charging and the Adreno 730 GPU is not as fast as the RDNA2 GPU included with the Exynos 2200 launching this month. This is most likely an early Snapdragon 895 sample and Qualcomm is probably still figuring out frequencies for each core. Smartphone OEMs will most likely push the specs even further with custom cooling solutions, so these performance numbers we see here might look better by the time the SoC is launched. Still, Apple is also expected to launch the A15 Bionic later this year, and the performance gap could yet again be widened.
