Snapdragon 8150 Antutu score leaked on the Chinese website Weibo and controversy started there. Some of the guys told me that Antutu is not trusted, it gives fake results and many more comments. Because first-time Snapdragon processor beats the Apple’s processor. Which is really great but calling it fake isn’t good just because one processor beats another.
Antutu benchmark app does various tasks to give you a final result. It provides the real-time performance by doing the various task in the device.
- CPU Test: Processors are designed to math very quickly. The benchmark result counted by taking a test of the device by assigning it task and time. For example, They might see how much data it can compress in a given time period or how fast it can do a specific task. The more tasks it can get through the higher number it receives.
- GPU Test: GPU performance tests the graphic of the device. Suppose if you’re playing a game then it tests what is the best graphics your phone can play. How long your device can run a game or render the 2D/3D graphics without dropping a frame. The longer and higher graphics it can play, the higher the score it gets.
- Memory Management: Memory management is an important parameter to score in benchmark at least in Antutu. Antutu checks how is the RAM management of the device and gives the score accordingly.
- UX is divided into two sub-scores — Multitask and Runtime. The Multitask score represents how well the device can multitask, so a multi-core CPU will help here. The Runtime score represents how well Android’s Dalvik runtime runs apps.
Geekbench score is divided into Single Core score and Multi-Core score. Geekbench tests the performance of the device by performing 4 tasks Assigned – Subsection Weight Cryptography -5%, Integer- 45%, Floating Point- 30%, Memory 20%.
- Crypto workloads measure the crypto instruction performance of your computer by performing cryptography tasks that make heavy use of crypto instructions. While not all software uses crypto instructions, the software that does can benefit enormously from it.
- Integer workloads measure the integer instruction performance of your computer by performing processor-intensive tasks that make heavy use of integer instructions. All software makes heavy use of integer instructions, meaning a high integer score indicates good overall performance.
- Floating Point Floating point workloads measure floating point performance by performing a variety of processor-intensive tasks that make heavy use of floating-point operations. While almost all software makes use of floating point instructions, floating point performance is especially important in video games, digital content creation, and high-performance computing applications.
- Memory workloads measure memory latency and bandwidth. Software working with large data structures (e.g., digital content creation) or with referential data structures (e.g., databases, web browsers) rely on good memory performance to keep the processor busy.
- Battery Score: Geekbench 4 battery scores measure the battery life of a device when running processor-intensive applications. It provides a consistent workload to the device and generates a Geekbench score by evaluating the amount of work that it is able to do while the battery is discharging and the amount of time it takes for the battery to discharge.
Different tasks that measure the real-time performance. Better the performance higher will be the results. Geekbench also counts the battery life performance in their test.
Why This Benchmark Doesn’t Matter?
It’s like judging the camera with the Megapixels, more megapixels means a better camera!
The real-life performance matters the most. I have seen the device which got the highest benchmark loss to the other (check out comparison videos on youtube). So, At the end of the day, the real-life performance matters the most.
Now, Don’t share a Gary Explains video of Speed test are flaws. Well, Each and everything he said in that video is right but why does it matter to me? I want faster speed that’s what I am getting. Developers using different apps, different codes, different platforms, different size, and all that stuff doesn’t matter to the end consumers. All that matters is the speed that’s what end consumer want.
