It’s no secret that Apple’s mobile processors were originally designed with a large future margin. And sometimes the power reserve is so large that even the latest developments of competitors are not able to beat the company’s branded chips in performance tests. And the Apple A12 single-chip system seems to be no exception.
It’s no secret that Apple’s mobile processors were originally designed with a great future. And sometimes the power reserve is so large that even the latest developments of competitors are not able to beat the company’s branded chips in performance tests. And the Apple A12 single-chip system seems to be no exception.
In early December, Qualcomm officially announced its new flagship Snapdragon processor 855. The manufacturer said that the updated platform had the most significant performance gain of all time . The graphics subsystem has also become much faster, and the Adreno 640 video accelerator is now responsible for it. It is expected that most Android flagships will be equipped with this processor, including the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus (for the US market). Let’s learn how the Snapdragon 855 manifests itself in comparison with the Apple A12.
The processor was compared with the SlashLeaks resource, which had a test sample of a smartphone with a new platform in its hands. Br /

As you can see from the above pictures, Apple A12 Bionic is significantly faster than its rival in the single-core test. The difference in the multi-core performance test is not so striking.

Alas, despite a more recent platform, Snapdragon 855 failed to beat its main rival in the face of Apple A12. According to experts, in all performance tests, the Apple single-chip system showed the best results in terms of energy efficiency – consuming 2-3 times less energy for the same tasks.
Of course, these are only preliminary tests, and it is quite possible that with the announcement of the first smartphones built on Snapdragon, the situation will change for the better, for Qualcomm, in the direction.
