Sony Xperia Go (NovaThor U8500) – 3577
I thought that would easily break a record but then noticed that there was a Spreadtrum with an even worse result. 😀
Getting an average of 775 after Pie update on Nokia 8 (sd 835). On oreo it was 847.
Nokia 8 (Snapdragon 835) – 847.
Because it is way more efficient (built on 14nm process while the 650 is on 28) and that makes a significant difference in battery life which is the phone’s strongest point. On other hand most users wouldn’t be able to feel the difference in power in most tasks. While Xiaomi faced some backlash by the enthusiasts for using it, I think it was a good choice overall and it’s no surprise that it easily became their best selling phone and the best selling mid ranger in China and India where they sold it officially. They used 625 in a lot of their phones last year and are using it once again in the Note 4’s successor.
By the way, you’ve written 825 instead of 625 in the table.
Yeah, the bigger cores inside the 821 are tweaked A73 and it’s doing worse than most of the other chips. So it has a lot to do with software and instruction implementation. Unless you see another MTK with similar core setup doing far better, then that may be just how much it can do.
There is no reason not to use them. Why do you think so?
I meant that the Mate 9 score was weird compared to the others (especially the other with the same chipset), not yours, I guess I didn’t word it right. 😀
But yeah, Qualcomm’s Adreno is a huge selling point over all the others (Samsung, Huawei, MTK) going with Mali not only because of performance and efficiency but also because of the pathetic state of the drivers on the latter resulting in way worse performance in other emulators like ppsspp and dolphin for example. I’m really hoping Samsung will start manufacturing their own gpu to complement the good job they’ve been putting in their processors but until that happens the trade off is not worth it for me and my use.
I’ll be in the market for a new device early next year and unless Samsung decide to switch to PowerVR or smth (there has been rumours about that in the past) I’ll basically be forced to switch to the new snapdragon – maybe Mi 7 or whatever Sony has to offer.
Also, kinda offtopic but have you tried Portal and Borderlands with gltools?
Alex, how does your S7 without performance governor compare to that Mate 9 anomaly? The weirdest thing is not it performing better than the Mate 10 (which can be explained by change in the architecture or smth) but that it’s quite a bit better than the Honor 9 too which also has Kirin 960. Maybe it has less throttling restrictions on stock?
EDIT: About the update lowering Mate 10’s results – there were a lot of heat problems with the Kirin 970 reported recently and maybe Huawei just decided to play it safe there.
With the arrows.
Huawei P9 Lite – Kirin 650 – 1830
It (in this case) allows the cpu to keep higher frequency.
Maybe keep both the results if there are more than one with different settings? So in my case – the one that is already in and another result with the tweak mentioned. That way people would be able to see the performance gain too and decide if it is worth it for them.
EDIT: Yeah, what Alex said.
It will be interesting to see how the 9810 will score when the S9 comes out then. Some leaks suggest a pretty big jump over the 8895.
Edit: Just tried running it with performance governor and got 1024 on my Alpha. I think we should start including it in the tweaks column considering most people probably wouldn’t bother with rooting and switching governors and the difference it makes is not negligible at all.
Result: Samsung Galaxy Alpha – Exynos 5430 – 1024 – Performance governor.
Any overclock and/or performance tweaks?
Just a note – Honor 9 has Kirin 960, not 930.
Samsung Galaxy Alpha (Exynos 5430) – 1203 on average.
