Snapdragon 8 Gen 1: Motorola Moto Edge X30 cracks 1 million points in AnTuTu, taking a 21% lead over the Black Shark 4S Pro
It seems that the dominance of the Black Shark 4S Pro at the top of AnTuTu's leaderboard will be short-lived. Currently, the Snapdragon 888 Plus-backed smartphone has an official score of 875,382 points, over 22,000 more than the RedMagic 6S Pro. However, Motorola's marketing assets suggest that the Moto Edge X30 and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 blow away both devices.
We already know from our time with Qualcomm's reference design that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 can score 228,047 points in AnTuTu v9, roughly a 7% improvement over the Black Shark 4S Pro. We tested pre-release hardware though, not necessarily reflective of how devices like the Moto Edge X30 will fare.
According to Motorola, the Moto Edge X30 scores 1,061,361 points overall in AnTuTu, a huge score for an Android smartphone. It is worth noting that Apple has already reached seven figures in AnTuTu, but the Android and iOS benchmarks are incomparable. Unfortunately, Motorola has not published an itemised account of its record-breaking run.
Nonetheless, by Motorola's count, the Moto Edge X30 outscores the Black Shark 4S Pro by 185,979 points. In other words, the Moto Edge X30 achieves a 21% higher score in AnTuTu v9 than the most powerful Android smartphone to date. Presumably, it will not be long before another Snapdragon 8 Gen 1-powered smartphone comes along and scores 1.1 million points, such as the Xiaomi 12.
