The news about Samsung’s upcoming Exynos 1080 chipset just broke out with its launch date fixed on November 12. Turns out Qualcomm is ready with its latest Snapdragon 875 chipset too. Codenamed as Lahaina, the chipset is significantly powerful scoring an AnTuTu score of an unthinkable 847,000 points. This puts it way ahead of the last-gen Snapdragon 865’s 663,000 that the iQOO 5 Pro managed to score. Abhishek Yadav on Twitter posted the screenshot of the benchmark scores on his handle.
No doubt this gives the Snapdragon 875 a 25% increment in powerful on an yearly upgrade. To put things in perspective, the Exynos 1080 which is now a powerful but mid-range chipset scored 693,000 points, Kirin 9000 flagship chipset with Huawei Mate 40 Pro scored 696,000 and the iPhone 12 with its A14 Bionic chipset scored 565,000 and no doubt no other chipset is even closed to the reported AnTuTu score of the 875.
Phone Arena quotes that the SD875 will use a 5nm manufacturing process that increases both performance and power efficiency. Moreover, the chipset will be using the latest Cortex-X1 and Cortex-A78 CPUs with new ARM cores that hikes the performance considerably. The upcoming Exynos 2100 which is the flagship chipset from Samsung that will be housed in Samsung Galaxy S21 (or S30) series uses new ARM cores as well.
The Snapdragon 875 will arrive with 1+3+4 cores arrangement including a single prime core, three high-performance scores and a power efficient core. The chipset will have a Snapdragon X60 5G modem embedded on it for a speedier 5G connection.
