New Snapdragon 875 Master Lu benchmark listing sheds light on the chip's GPU prowess, maximum clock speed, and more

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 managed to beat Huawei's Kirin 9000 and the previous-generation Snapdragon 865+ in the Master Lu benchmark. While the Snapdragon 875's Cortex-X1 Super core (2.8GHz) managed to keep it ahead in the CPU department, things are a lot closer to the GPU front. The Kirin 9000's ARM Mali-G78 GPU managed to surpass the Adreno 660, which is quite impressive.

A few days ago, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 made its AnTuTu debut, and the results were nothing short of impressive. The yet-to-be-released silicon has once again shown up on a different benchmarking software called Master Lu. We also have a complete breakdown of the score, giving us a better idea about how its Adreno 660 GPU fares against ARM's 24-core monster GPU, the Mali-G78.

To put things in perspective, Digital Chat Station posted (via Seekdevice) the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875's Master Lu score alongside that of two current-generation chips, namely the HiSilicon Kirin 9000 (on a Huawei Mate 40 Pro) and Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ (on an iQOO 5 Pro). Both chips seem to perform exceptionally well, with scores of 875,308 and 820,220, respectively. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 is within a spitting distance of 900,000, with a score of 899,401.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 875's Adreno 660 GPU managed to score 342,225, a tad bit slower than the Kirin 9000's ARM Mali-G78, which managed to score 344,334. Considering that the former is likely an engineering sample and that the latter is a retail unit, we can expect that number to go much higher in subsequent tests. It looks like ARM has finally caught up with Qualcomm in the GPU department. One can only hope that OEMs figure out to cool the Mali-G78, as the GPU is a bit of a power hog.

On the CPU side of things, the Snapdragon 875 stays ahead of the pack with a score of 333,269. The Kirin 9000 and Snapdragon 865+ manage to snag 275,862 and 290,169, respectively. However, the Master Lu listing sheds light on some critical information that is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875's maximum clock speed. Its ARM Cortex-X1 Super Core is clocked 2.8GHz. That number is slightly lower than the Cortex-A77 cores on the Snapdragon 865+ and Kirin 9000, which are clocked at 3.1GHz each. Several other factors other than clock speed determine how a CPU ticks, so we can't pass any judgment based on that alone. OEMs might extract more performance out of the silicon once it is out and about for a while.
