Snapdragon 820 was again tested in Geekbench. Results achieved that there are no revolutionary for the time, but looking at the overall information about the entity I can not help feeling that Qualcomm this time will give the competition a hard time.
820 Snapdragon first appeared in Geekbench three months ago, twisting test 1732 points in the single core and 4970 to test multiple cores. At that moment it was a really good result, but the subsequent performance of other processors somewhat overshadowed him. This time new baby Qualcomm showed up with a much better side , with 2032 and 5910 points. And that is the result really interesting, taking into account the overall competition in the field of processors for mobile devices. and the fact that relatively low core clock speed (2.2 GHz and 1.7 GHz).iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, operating under the control of Apple A9 achieve the same benchmark about 2500 points in a test of one of the core and approximately 4,500 points in a test of all cores . As we know, this is a processor made up of two strong cores, so the result of multicore force things can not be greater than the performance of more complex processors. Some of you may note that the potential for a large number of cores is not used, but recent study site AnandTech have shown that in many situations the system uses all the cores, even if the technology is used big.LITTLE. As a result, we can openly say that multi-core processors have more sense than we think, of course, under some obvious conditions. In any case, the main character of these considerations is going to be phenomenal. Powerful GPU support for many modern technologies and excellent performance in benchmark tests (even in such as Antutu) can bring us long unseen revolution in computing power. Just that Snapdragon 820 will operate without excessive throttling, while not reaching extreme temperatures. The key to success lies in the hands of engineers Qualcomm, but fortunately this time the work is not burning them in the hands and probably again will present to the world the enormous potential of their systems. They not once did it and I see no reason to not do it again. It can then take for chips for devices with lower price levels, because of their previous activities are highly unsatisfactory. But one thing I'm (almost) a – king returns.
