Still unannounced, but preparing for release, the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor was lit in the database of the benchmark Geekbench 4.0.4. The chip became noticeably more powerful, but its performance was not enough to overtake last year’s Apple A11 Bionic processor from the iPhone 8 and X.
Snapdragon 855 will replace Snapdragon 845, which is now installed in almost all flagship smartphones. The novelty showed a noticeable increase in performance compared to its predecessor. In a single-core test, the chip scored 3697 points, and in the multi-core 10649. The predecessor dials 2400 and 8500 points respectively. But there was still not enough performance to overtake the Apple A11 processor, which is the same tests is gaining 4195 and 10005 points. There is a possibility that Snapdragon 855 is still not optimized, and the final version may be much more powerful.
It is expected that Snapdragon 855 will be presented in the fourth quarter of the year. It will be built on a 7 nm process technology.
