The Snapdragon 8150, Kirin 980, A12 Bionic, and a few other SoCs were intensively tested on AnTuTu, with the results showing the Snapdragon 8150's overall dominance. The A12 Bionic managed to hold the high ground in a few departments, though.

Apple’s A-series SoCs have been the mobile processors to beat for the past few generations. The company released the A12 Bionic a few months ago and it, just as expected, blew all competing SoCs away, Huawei’s Kirin 980 also failing to match it in spite of the company’s boasts. According to new information, though, Qualcomm’s next-gen Snapdragon 8150 may just get the job done.

The source cites a series of detailed AnTuTu benchmark scores as proof. Going by the scores, the Snapdragon 8150 does, indeed, post overall higher scores than the A12 Bionic. That’s where the feel-good story mostly ends, though. According to the source, the Snapdragon 8150 records an overall score of 362,292, marginally better than the A12’s score of 352,405. 

Of course, AnTuTu overall scores consider a number of factors, of which raw CPU performance is just one. In the CPU department, the Snapdragon 8150 racked up a score of 122,141. The A12, on the other hand, continued its dominance with a 131,398 score. That was about expected, in all honesty, and of more interest to us is the fact that the Snapdragon 8150 managed to beat the Kirin 980, with the latter achieving a score of 113,433.

While the Snapdragon 8150 sits behind the A12 in CPU, it did manage to flex its muscles in the GPU test, as it posted a score of 156,328, higher than the A12’s 145,665 result.

When compared with the current-gen Snapdragon 845, the Snapdragon 8150 showed a 30% increase in CPU performance, and about a 25% boost in GPU performance.

Of course, AnTuTu isn’t exactly the most reliable benchmark, but this does give us our first look at the capabilities of the Snapdragon 8150.
