Qualcomm shares impressive Snapdragon 888 benchmark results, regaining the top spot on AnTuTu Snapdragon 888 reference design

Qualcomm’s new top-of-the-line Snapdragon 888 platform is expected to make its commercial debut in the coming months. While we await confirmation on when those smartphones will launch, it went ahead and shared results of its performance on major benchmarks.

Benchmarks are a common way to assess a chipset’s performance in aspects such as processing power, AI, 5G, cameras, etc. It’s a practice that is used to compare the improvements and advancements enabled with each new generation. However, these should only be considered as a representation, as there are affected by various other factors such as performance tweaks, storage speeds, operating temperature, optimizations, display refresh rates, software skins and more. Real-life mileage is likely to vary.
