Qualcomm Tops AnTuTu's New Top 10 Best Android SoCs Chart

Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 chip spearheads the list ahead significantly of Samsung's current flagship chipset.

AnTuTu has revealed a new page on its site, which details the performance of noted chipsets used in Android smartphones. As opposed to delivering it in its usual graphs, however, the firm had to show it in an interesting visual chart.

The popular benchmarking application and service shared that to verify which processors are the best, a series of tests on the devices with their accompanying chipsets had to be conducted.

The top position on the ranking is currently held by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 5G chipset. Meanwhile, Samsung's Exynos 990 chip marches behind, with a performance difference that is quite staggering. One of the highlights in the compilation is the presence of MediaTek's Dimensity 1000+, which comes in 3rd place. One of the Taiwanese chip maker's latest, gaming-oriented chips is the cheapest SoC to ever get closer to its pricier counterparts.

Qualcomm's previous flagship iteration, the Snapdragon 855+, is still mighty, placing itself in fourth place. HUAWEI's HiSilicon Kirin 990 5G chip, on the other hand, emerges as the fifth placer on the list. The upper echelon of the visual compilation is rounded up by the Snapdragon 855 chipset.

The seventh spot is occupied by the Exynos 9825 and the Kirin 990 chips, with the Exynos 9820 trailing behind.

Another MediaTek chipset also clinches one of the top spots, with the placement of the newly-minted Dimensity 820 SoC. The said chip is now confirmed to debut with the Redmi 10X series. The company's chip is then flanked by the Kirin 985 5G and Kirin 980 processors on the same spot.

Some takeaways from AnTuTu's new list: Apple's chipsets are notoriously absent on the list. Had they been included, they would have claimed virtually the compilation of the top spots, especially those which power their current tablet versions.

The results on the compilation are also not calculated based on the full AnTuTu score. The score includes screen refresh rate and storage speed, with which outputs can vary wildly between phones that are equipped with the same processor.

What makes this new AnTuTu page more interesting is the use of only the CPU and GPU performance. With these in tow, the reliability of knowing the real power of a chipset is very much considerable.

To verify the most accurate results in this compilation, AnTuTu had to take into account the scores from all phones using a given chipset.
