The first official benchmark results are in for the Snapdragon 888, and they show a healthy uplift from the performance of the Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 865+. The results are informative, but there are too many variables at play to compare the Snapdragon 888 against one of its main rivals, the Apple A14 Bionic.

Qualcomm has shown its set of official benchmark results for the Snapdragon 888, its next-generation flagship SoC. Published by XDA Developers, the video confirms that the Snapdragon 888 scores around 740,000 points in AnTuTu V8, which is well above what the 576,457 points that the Snapdragon 865 has averaged in our test. A 28% performance improvement in a year is impressive, but that lead narrows to under 10% in other benchmarks like Geekbench 5.

Undoubtedly, people will draw comparisons between these official benchmark results and those that the Apple A14 Bionic achieves in the same benchmarks. We would recommend exercising some caution when comparing the two chipsets in this way though, as AnTuTu, Geekbench and GFX Bench are not compiled identically for Android and iOS. Additionally, these official benchmark results may not necessarily reflect app performance improvements between the Snapdragon 888 and its predecessors.

You can view the full official benchmark video below. It is worth noting that we cannot verify the Geekbench 5 results shown on the Geekbench database. However, there are a few references to the 'QUALCOMM Lahaina for arm64' on Geekbench 5 OpenCL and Geekbench 4. Unsurprisingly, the Snapdragon 888 reference device scores about 20% more than the Snapdragon 865 in Geekbench 4, too. Oddly, the two chipsets are neck-and-neck in the multi-core portion of that benchmark. We have included links to and screenshots of the results below, also.
