Qualcomm has officially revealed three new Snapdragon chipsets yesterday: the 665, 730, and the 730G. The 665 is noted for bringing cool new photography features for mid-range smartphones while the Snapdragon 730 and 730G feature new generation of AI processing, improved performance, higher efficiency, and the 730G gaming also includes new gaming features. Since Qualcomm is undoubtedly one of the biggest mobile chipsets manufacturers in the world, we are surely curious about how the giant’s latest chipsets perform. Well, the good news is that AnTuTu, a popular benchmarking platform for smartphones, has listed benchmarks of the three new SoCs.
Obviously, the Snapdragon 730G has an ample lead over the other chipsets in terms of CPU score. The 730G achieved a CPU benchmark score of 86,915 points while the Snapdragon 730 chipset produced 82,585 points. The new 730G beats the Snapdragon 710 by about 20,000 points. This magnitude of the difference between the two SoCs clearly shows that Qualcomm has decided to put quite some juice in the new chipset.
As for the GPU scores, the Snapdragon 730 and 730G again take a considerable lead with the Snapdragon 710 chipset failing to catch up. The Snapdragon 730G was on top with 66,398 points in the GPU test while the regular 730 came in second with 63,878 points in the test. The comparison of the Snapdragon 730 duo with the 710 is barely admissible as the 710 could score a mere 47,736 points in the test.
As for the verdict, the overall score on the AnTuTu benchmark shows that the Snapdragon 730G is the most powerful chipset in the series with 222,538 points while the regular SD 730 follows the lead with 213,113. The Snapdragon 675 proved itself to be more powerful than the SD 710 by getting the third position with 174,402 points.
When we compare these new chipsets to Qualcomm’s latest and greatest flagship processors like the Snapdragon 845 or 855, the former set of chipsets will look like the latter set’s mere training grounds. However, it cannot be denied that jumping to 8nm fabrication technology has allowed Qualcomm to pack a lot more processing power in a package of the same size as the SD 710 SoC.
One interesting thing anomaly in this benchmark was that the Snapdragon 665 failed to defeat the SD 660 in the CPU test. The 660 was able to secure 57,939 points while the Snapdragon 650 chipset passed the test with 66,695 points which is no small difference. The chipset was able to defeat the Snapdragon 650 in GPU test but then got surpassed by the SD 670. The Snapdragon 655 secured an overall score of 125,092 points.
While this benchmark gives us a very accurate overview of the performance of the new chipsets compared to the old ones, it cannot be taken with absolute certainty. This is because the new chipsets are still in the prototype phase and the results could change when they are officially launched in the market.
