Snapdragon 888 vs Kirin 9000: Xiaomi Mi 11 tops the final AnTuTu flagship smartphone performance chart of 2020 ahead of the Huawei Mate 40 Pro+
The December AnTuTu flagship smartphone performance chart for Android devices has revealed that the new Xiaomi Mi 11 with Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset is the leader, with an average score over a thousand benchmarks of 708,425 points compared to the 702,819 points of the second-placed Huawei Mate 40 Pro+ with the HiSilicon Kirin 9000 SoC. It will be good news for Xiaomi executives who will enjoy getting one over their Huawei rivals, especially with a much cheaper smartphone.
The Snapdragon 888 vs Kirin 9000 results were surprising similar: For instance, the CPU scores across the averages were 196,344 for the Mi 11 and 191,286 for the Mate 40 Pro+ (both 12 GB + 256 GB configurations). The GPU results were even tighter, with the Adreno 660 iGPU helping the Xiaomi Mi 11 reach 306,548 points while the Mali-G78 graphics-processing component in the Huawei Mate 40 Pro+ scored 305,358 points. However, AnTuTu opines that more can still be expected from the Snapdragon 888’s GPU in terms of performance.
The memory section of the benchmark was actually a victory for the Huawei Mate 40 Pro+ with 118,140 points vs 110,567 points for the Mi 11. The Xiaomi device relies on speedy UFS 3.1 storage, but the Huawei phone comes with SFS 1.0, which apparently has much quicker sequential and random write and read speeds than UFS 3.1. Lastly, the Xiaomi Mi 11 swoops in for the win in the UX section thanks to the 2K 120 Hz screen it sports, helping the Snapdragon 888 to 94,969 points over the Mate 40 Pro+’s score of 88,029 points.
