Benchmark scores of Snapdragon 888
Qualcomm has announced the benchmark scores of their latest offering in the chipset. The benchmarks revealed by the company were in Geekbench, Antutu, and some other platforms. And yes, the results were impressive, and it will be interesting to see how the Exynos 2100 stacks up against the chipset. Generally, Qualcomm gives reviews access to their latest chips in order to test out their performance. But with COVID, that has not been an option.
Talking about the scores on the most popular platforms Geekbench and Antutu, the score was far superior as compared to last generation chips. In Geekbench, the single-core score of the chip was 1,135 and 3,794 in multi-core performance.

Qualcomm leading the chipset industry in Android
There were speculations that the new Exynos 2100 chip might cross the latest Snapdragon chipsets in terms of performance. But, the new chipset’s GPU and CPU performance upgrades show that it might still stay the king in the industry. The chipset based on the 5nm process has a 25% and 35% boost in CPU and GPU, respectively, compared to the last generation. And apart from the mere CPU and GPU boost, Qualcomm’s latest offering also has better AI capabilities with a faster neural engine and is much more efficient.
