Qualcomm is all set to unleash its upcoming Snapdragon 8150 SoC, on 4th of December.  The launch event will be held in Maui, Hawaii as part of a three-day tech summit to be held from December 4-6.

The successor to the Snapdragon 845 mobile platform will power most of the 2019 flagship smartphones. Ahead of the launch, the results of the AI performance has been released, and the chipset has topped it with an unmatched score of 22,082.

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8150 will be added to the standard Adreno GPU, Kryo CPU, Spectra ISP, and Hexagon DSP. Qualcomm adds a separate AI feature so you know the future phones will be smarter than ever.

As per the info, the Snapdragon 8150 will have four low-power Kryo Silver cores, with 128KB L2 cache each, running at roughly 1.8GHz max in one cluster, then a trio of Kryo Gold ones, with 256KB L2 cache, per core and a max frequency of 2.419GHz in another cluster. And last, but definitely not least a beefy single Kryo Gold core with double the L2 cache, at 512KB and a maximum frequency of 2.842Ghz.

The AI benchmark score published by ai-benchmark site reveals that the dev SD 8150 platform has defeated the new Huawei’s 7nm HiSilicon Ki-rin 980SoC with close to double the points. The SoC was tested on a device with 6GB of RAM and Android 9 Pie. The latter only managed to nail 12,026 AI-score despite boasting dual NPUs for Artificial Intelligence. The silicon was placed fourth on the benchmark list, just behind the Snapdragon 845 silicon. Occupying the second spot is MediaTek’s unannounced Helio P80 Dev Platform with 19,453 points.

The upcoming chipset from MediaTek, the Helio P80 is the only one which even comes close to the SD 8150 platform in terms of AI benchmarks. This is nearly triple the score of what the MediaTek P60 has.


The chipset’s benchmark score has surfaced online through AnTuTu. The chipset has scored 362,292 points on AnTuTu, making it the first chipset running on Android platform to have crossed the benchmark of 360,000 points.

Recently, a Geekbech listing revealed that the chipset logged a score of 3,281 in the single-core test, and 11,023 in the multi-core test. These scores are higher than Snapdragon 845 that logged a score of 2,500 in single-core test and 8,900 in multi-core test.
