In the coming weeks and months, smartphones wielding Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 855 processor will start to hit store shelves, and we'll start to get a better idea of the chip's performance. In the meantime, a new benchmark entry on Geekbench purportedly showing scores for Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S10+ give us a glimpse of what to expect. Samsung has not yet formally introduced the Galaxy S10+, though is expected to during its Unpacked event on February 20. According to various leaks and rumors, it will be one of at least three Galaxy S10 phones. On Geekbench, the Galaxy S10+ is listed with... Read more...
It has been rumored that Google is prepping mid-range versions of its Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL handsets, which will be called Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL. These would be more affordable variants than their flagship brethren, with lower end hardware. Surprisingly, however, a supposedly leaked benchmark reveals that the Pixel 3 Lite XL might actually have more RAM than the Pixel 3 XL. There is a new database entry over at Geekbench that points to the upcoming device. It's listed as a "Foxconn Pixel 3 XL" with an "SDM710" chipset, otherwise known as Qualcomm's Snapdragon 710 system-on-chip (SoC),... Read more...
It's only been a few days since Apple unveiled its refreshed MacBook Air notebook keeping the thin profile and sporting a Retina Display, Touch ID, and 8th generation Intel Core i5 processors among other tweaks. A few days later the first benchmarks for the 2018 MacBook Air have turned up on Geekbench giving us an idea of what the updated hardware inside the machine means for performance. The Air in these benchmarks is called out as having a 1.6GHz Intel Core i5-8210Y CPU and 16GB of RAM under the hood. The Geekbench scores for the machine show a single-core score of 4248 and a multi-core... Read more...
Back in early June, Qualcomm announced the new Snapdragon 850 Mobile Platform that will power second-generation "Always-Connected" Windows 10 PCs. The first generation of Windows 10 convertibles are currently on the market from ASUS, HP and Lenovo running Snapdragon 835 processors. Qualcomm has promised a 30 percent boost in system performance for Snapdragon 850 versus its predecessor, but how will that play out in the real world? Well, some leaked Geekbench scores have made their way to the internet that reportedly come from an unannounced Lenovo device that is powered by Snapdragon... Read more...
Geekbench is not just a popular benchmark (one that we quite often use in our various product reviews), it apparently is also a hot landing spot for unreleased hardware. Such is the case once gain, this time for Google's Pixel 3 XL. The unannounced handset made an appearance on Geekbench, and while the scores look pretty good, its entry is riling up users for another reason. Prominent leaker Ice Universe posted a screenshot of the Pixel 3 XL on Geekbench, with the entry revealing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip (SoC), 4GB of system RAM, and Android 9.0. So why all the rabble-rabble? The... Read more...
One of the things that was rumored early on to turn up at Apple's WWDC last month were refreshed MacBooks running Intel Coffee Lake processors. Those refreshed Macs didn’t happen leaving many Apple fans disappointed. Now, however, a new MacBook Pro model with an Intel Coffee Lake processor has turned up on Geekbench giving Mac fans hope that refreshed hardware is coming. The Geekbench entry was logged this week and lists a "MacBook Pro 15,2" model notebook that packs inside an Intel Core i7-8559U processor. That CPU is a 28W part with a 2.7GHz base frequency. The turbo frequency for the chip... Read more...
The Galaxy Note 9 hasn't launched yet, but we already know quite a bit about the smartphone thanks to several leaks. The first leak saw the Snapdragon 845 flavor show up on Geekbench with a score of 2190 for single-core and 8806 for multi-core performance. The second leak was again on Geekbench and showed that Samsung had likely done some optimizing when the same Snapdragon 845 SoC leaked with a 2411 single-core and 8712 multi-core score. Another leak has happened with Geekbench again seeing details of the Galaxy Note 9 published, but this time out the scores are for the Exynos 9810 version of... Read more...
At the end of March, we got our first glimpse at how the Galaxy Note 9 smartphone would perform when it turned up on Geekbench rocking a Snapdragon 845 SoC and 6GB of RAM. Those first benchmarks showed single core performance of 2190 and a multicore score of 8806. The Note 9 has turned up again on Geekbench with a new round of scores for us to look at. You can see the Geekbench screenshot below. The new scores give a much-improved single-core Score of 2411. The multi-core score is down a bit from that initial run with 8712. The system information calls out the identical Samsung SM-N960U model number.... Read more...
Back at the beginning of the year, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau talked about the OnePlus 6, saying at the time that work had begun on the phone and that it will feature Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip. That is the same mobile processor that powers Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ handsets in the US. Ahead of the phone's launch, however, some benchmarks emerged that show the OnePlus 6 outperforming Samsung's flagship handsets. Before we go any further, the standard disclaimer applies—leaked benchmarks are not a reliable to draw any conclusions about a device's final performance, for a variety... Read more...
AMD is set to releases its second generation Ryzen processors in mid-April, which will bring to the table faster clocks, performance optimizations, and presumably better power efficiency. As to the performance of the new parts, we have been getting sneak peeks through a series of leaks. The latest is an appearance by AMD's upcoming Ryzen 7 2700X processor on Geekbench. Assuming AMD is also prepping a Ryzen 7 2800X to hang its flagship banner in the mainstream consumer desktop processor category, the Ryzen 7 2700X will sit one rung below, effectively replacing the current generation Ryzen 7 1700X....

The Samsung Galaxy S9 is going to be an insanely fast smartphone, and doubly so if you don't live in the United States or China. New leaked benchmarks for the Galaxy S9 with the Exynos 9810 processor show that Samsung's newest SoC is a performance beast. The benchmarks come courtesy of Geekbench, and show that the Galaxy S9 with a Snapdragon 845 processor putting up single- and multi-core scores of 2455 and 8312 respectively. Those numbers compare favorably to our own numbers from a reference Snapdragon 845 smartphone, which came in at 2476 and 8411 respectively. While those numbers are no doubt... Read more...
Apple has a controversy brewing on its hands, and it all started because of a reddit thread that gained traction earlier this month. One redditor complained of poor CPU performance on his iPhone 6s (which was confirmed with multiple Geekbench runs), that was magically "cured" when he installed a new battery. He along with other redditors in the thread surmised that Apple was purposefully throttling CPU performance on iPhones whose batteries had fallen below a certain threshold. Primate Labs founder John Poole (and the brains behind Geekbench) basically confirmed these initial findings with some... Read more...
Are today's flagship smartphones fast enough? Have we reached the point of diminishing returns on processor upgrades? Who cares! As geeks and power users, one of the things we look forward to most with each new flagship phone launch is the performance bump that comes with it. That will again be the case when Samsung launches its Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, as evidenced by some early benchmarks that popped up in Geekbench's database. Listed as "Samsung SM-G965UI," the new entry points to a Galaxy S9+ handset with an 8-core Qualcomm processor, presumably the Snapdragon 845 that we already know will... Read more...
It looks like the developers behind the popular cross-platform Benchmark have confirmed suspicions that many users have amassed with regards to overall system performance on "older" iPhones. Earlier this month, we reported on a link between CPU throttling on some previous generation models and iOS updates that were pushed out to address unrelated battery-life issues regarding premature shutdowns. Some users reported that replacing their old and well-worn battery with a new battery (OEM or third-party) restored overall system performance to a like-new state. It was surmised that Apple was throttling... Read more...
