We all have heard about the AnTuTu at some point in our life. We know AnTuTu as the benchmark application for Android and iOS platforms. AnTutu is a Chinese application tool that allows users to measure the performance of a device. AnTuTu is currently the best in the market. The tool is mostly used to check the CPU and GPU performance of a device.
Last week, AnTuTu made a list of the top 10 SoCs or CPUs in simpler language for the first half of 2020. They made the list on Friday, and it was made based on performance rankings from a high to a low score. If you are about to buy a new device, you can take a glance at this list and make the best decision.
AnTuTu’s latest SoC performance chart shows ranking only for Android OS devices. The ranking is based on memory performance, which fluctuates depending on the capacity of RAM and built-in storage. The UX performance fluctuates depending on the refresh rate of 90Hz or 144Hz, and the CPU performance, excluding the UX performance and the GPU performance, are combined to form a ranking. So, let’s check it out.
Qualcomm secured the first position on the list with their Snapdragon 865 5G chipset, scoring a total of 401108 points, divided into a CPU score of 182123 and a GPU score of 218985. The second rank is snatched by the MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ with a CPU score of 150341 and a GPU score of 191373, which makes it a total of 341714 points. MediaTek looks like it will be a new contender in high-end SoCs. The main difference between these two SoCs is that the Snapdragon 865 uses a separate X55 modem for 5G support, while the MediaTek 1000+ comes with integrated 5G support. Again, Qualcomm shines its name by grabbing the third rank with its Snapdragon 855 Plus with a total of 327796 points: 139192 points for CPU and 188603 points for GPU. These are the top 3 on the list.
The next seven spots are taken by the Kirin 990 5G with 307979 points, Snapdragon 855 with 307662 points, Kirin 990 with 300761 points, MediaTek Dimensity 1000L with 292480 points, Kirin 980 with 257720 points, Kirin 985 5G with 252788 points and last but not the least MediaTek Dimensity 820 with 249151 points.
At some point, you may have hoped for Samsung’s Exynos processors, but the list was made for the domestic Android mobile phone performance; AnTuTu’s domestic market is in China, and the Samsung flagships that come to China use Snapdragon chips. In the first half, Qualcomm took the first rank, and we still have the other half left of 2020. So, let’s see who grabs the top position in the next half.
