The new Snapdragon 865 was unveiled yesterday. The device has now been benchmarked on an outdated version of Geekbench. Recorded scores show it throwing blows with the Apple A12 Bionic, matching the Apple A13 in multi-core, while equalling the Exynos 9825 in single-core and destroying it in multi-core.

Yesterday, Qualcomm unveiled three new high-performance SoCs, the Snapdragon 865, Snapdragon 765, and Snapdragon 765G. The Snapdragon 865 is the company's next-gen flagship SoC, and will compete with other offerings like the Kirin 990, Exynos 990, and Apple Bionic A13. The Snapdragon 865 has now made its way over to Geekbench, and achieved some rather impressive scores.

Do note that the benchmark it was tested on is the now outdated Geekbench 4.4 (Geekbench has now moved on to version 5). As such, finding performance numbers on the same platform for competing SoCs may be a tad difficult. Thankfully, we have our own database to go by. 

In the single-core core test, the Snapdragon 865 earned a score of 4303. In comparison, the Snapdragon 855+ typically records scores in the region of 3700. The Exynos 9825 scores around 4550. Getting Geekbench 4.4 scores for the A13 Bionic was difficult, but the A12 usually scores about 4800.

In the multi-core test, the Snapdragon 865 recorded a score of 13344. The Snapdragon 855+ scores about 11400, the Exynos 9825 scores around 10500, and the Apple A12 typically earns scores in the region of 11,550.

We're yet to see tangible verifiable benchmarks of the Exynos 990, and it'll be interesting to see how it does against the Snapdragon 865.
