“The Snapdragon 898 has exceeded all expectations. There has finally been a breakthrough in the performance of Android smartphones. ” Fresh information from a reputable insider
The authoritative insider Ice Universe has published a compilation of new information about the Snapdragon 898 SoC, the GPU of which turned out to be much more productive than expected.
The GPU performance and power efficiency of the Snapdragon 898 SoC were very strong. Much higher than expected. I’m missing data on the Exynos 2200, but my estimate is that the Exynos 2200 GPU needs to be 50% faster than the Exynos 2100 to catch up with the Adreno 730 GPU in the Snapdragon 898.
The insider added that the Snapdragon 898 SoC has been improved over its predecessor in all aspects, including the GPU, AI unit and image processor. So far, however, he is only concerned about the CPU and potential overheating. This fear is based on flashbacks of the hot Snapdragon 888.
If the Exynos 2200 fails to perform at its full potential, then the Snapdragon 898 GPU will be the only GPU that can compete with the Apple A15 Bionic GPU. I am very happy that there has finally been a breakthrough in the performance of Android smartphones.
Ice Universe has provided accurate information on Samsung smartphones and image sensors many times, including the recent announcements of new 50MP and 200MP sensors. He was also the first to show accurate images of smartphones with waterfall screens.
