Qualcomm has a new SoC in the works, and it is shaping up to be a powerhouse if early benchmarks can be trusted. According to numbers posted on GeekBench, the upcoming SoC looks to be on par with Apple’s current generation Bionic A11 processor.
The new Qualcomm SoC is codenamed, and the scores actually look pretty good. Multi-core workloads should benefit with the SoC’s new cores, as the score of 10,469 is way ahead than the nearest Bionic A11, which only scored 10,174.
However, the single core performance of the Qualcomm SoC is still behind Apple’s current flagship mobile processor. With a score of 3697 versus the A11’s score of 4219. This may hint that the new SoC will be a good multi-tasker, but will fall behind in focused processing using single cores. The same processor was also spotted at HTML5Test, scoring a 510 out of a possible 555 points.
There is also another theory for the processor. Instead it heading to smartphones, the “msmnile” could be the next Windows for ARM processor from Qualcomm. Therefore, Instead of it possibly being the Snapdragon 855, it could be the Snapdragon 1000 SoC. In any case, we’ll just have to wait for the Qualcomm’s official announcement to glean more info on its capabilities.
