When Apple announced the iPhone 12 family earlier this week, the company was quick to tout the new 5nm A14 Bionic SoC that is powering the smartphones. The A14 Bionic is a 6-core chip, with two high-performance cores coupled with four low-power efficiency cores. More importantly, Apple boldly claimed that the A14 Bionic is up to 50 percent faster than SoCs found in competing Android flagships with regards to CPU and graphics performance. A listing for the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro has been discovered in Geekbench 5, and it does show some strong performance gains compared to the outgoing A13 Bionic. The iPhone 12 Pro was able to pull down a single-core score of 1597, while its multi-core... Read more...
Intel and AMD are arming themselves with an updated arsenal of mobile CPUs, but which one will win the war? That remains to be seen. As we await the next-gen skirmish, however, more leaked benchmarks have emerged. This time the focus is on Intel's upcoming Comet Lake-H series, and specifically the 10th generation Core i9-10880H. Comet Lake represents another iteration of Intel's 14-nanometer node. Low power models for ultrathin laptops have already launched, including the Core i7-10710U and several others, but we are awaiting more powerful variants, both for the desktop (Comet Lake-S) and beefier laptops (Comet Lake-H). Rumor has it they finally debut in mid-March. Meanwhile, AMD at CES 2020... Read more...
AMD is firing on cylinders these days -- at least with respect to processors -- and the latest example of that is with its newest Renoir APUs built on 7nm Zen 2 architecture. AMD announced these APUs earlier this month at CES 2020 as the Ryzen 4000 series, and a number of OEM partners announced new laptops featuring the chips. Today, we're getting a glimpse at what kind of performance that we can expect out of laptops equipped with these APUs when they arrive this quarter. Thanks to a Geekbench listing for an unnamed Lenovo laptop, we're getting seeing some strong performance from the Ryzen 7 4700U. We see the Ryzen 7 4700U here putting up a single-core score of 4910, and a multi-core... Read more...
Intel stated at CES 2020 that laptops sporting 10th generation Comet Lake-H processors would be shipping soon, including models with speeds hitting (and surpassing) 5GHz. What kind of performance might those laptops bring? Rather than wonder, some leaked benchmark listings on Geekbench provide us some clues. As spotted by Twitter user APISAK, there are three Geekbench listings claiming to represent Intel's Core i9-10980HK processor. Intel has not yet spilled the beans on its entire Comet Lake-H lineup, in terms of models names and specifications. However, the company has said they will ship with up to 8 cores and 16 threads of computing muscle, with 5GHz being achieved on Core i7 and "even higher... Read more...
What would a smartphone launch be without the usual round of pre-launch leaks and rumors? We may never find out the answer to that question, because frequent leaks are simply part of the game these days (whether they're real or controlled leaks is another matter). And so it goes over at Geekbench, where where a bit of specs and performance data has seemingly been revealed for Samsung's next generation Galaxy S20 handset. Or you can call the Galaxy S11. That is still a possibility, though rumor has it Samsung is rolling with "Galaxy 20" for its next-gen flagship phone. To avoid confusion, we will refer to it as that from here on out. All that really matters is that we are clear on this being the... Read more...
If you just built a high-end desktop (HEDT) configuration based on a Threadripper or Core-X processor, you may want to avert your eyeballs somewhere else. At the very least, brace yourself for some numbers to follow. Your system is still fast, mind you, just not as fast as a pair of EPYC 7H12 processors in a Cray Shasta supercomputer performing a Geekbench run. Before we get to the results, let's talk specs. AMD offers three EPYC processors with 64 physical cores and 128 threads of computing muscle, the EPYC 7H12 is the fastest of the bunch—it has a 2.6GHz base clock and 3.3GHz max boost clock, to go along with 256MB of L3 cache. Here's how it stacks up with a few other EPYC 7002 processors... Read more...
This is shaping up to be an exciting month. Sure, Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and we can look forward to Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, as is always the case this time of year. But outside of all that, AMD and Intel are about to duke it out in the enthusiast space with new processors that push core counts way above what the typical user needs. As a preview of what is to come, a leaked benchmark pits the AMD's Ryzen 9 3950X against Intel's Core i9-10980XE. AMD Ryzen 9 3950X and Intel Core i9-10980XE Extreme Edition Specifications It's important to note that these are different classes of CPUs. As odd as it may seem, the Ryzen 9 3950X is technically a mainstream desktop CPU,... Read more...
In addition to being a useful benchmark for processors of all kind (desktop, laptop, phones, tablets), Geekbench is also the go-to place for leaked data, as we have seen time and again. As it pertains to that, a fresh leak points to an unreleased Apple iPhone model. The data suggests it is a successor to the iPhone XR, and if the listing is accurate, we can expect a bump in RAM. The model is listed as "iPhone12,1" running iOS 13.1, with "N104AP" listed as the motherboard. That latter identifier is in line with previous rumors suggesting the iPhone XR successor (part of the iPhone 11 series) is going by the codename N104. What's interesting about the database entry is the amount of RAM—it... Read more...
Here we go again—in the lead up to the eventual unveiling of new Threadripper processors based on AMD's 7-nanometer Zen 2 CPU architecture, one of the upcoming chips has again made an appearance on Geekbench. What is remarkable about this particular leak, however, is how just well the leaked CPU performs. That is assuming the database entry is legitimate, and of course we have no way of knowing that for sure. What we do know is that the listing indicates a "Sharkstooth" (third-generation Threadripper) processor with 32 physical cores and 64 threads of computing muscle. According to the database entry, the third-gen Threadripper part has a 2.2GHz base clock and 4.17GHz (probably 4.2GHz)... Read more...
We've already heard about the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus SoC that is aimed at high-end gaming smartphones. We also know that the ASUS ROG Phone II will sport that high-end chipset and have seen that smartphone in a leak. One thing that has been unknown is what levels of performance the SoC will provide to gamers. Geekbench scores for the Black Shark 2 gaming smartphone that uses the 855 Plus SoC have surfaced, and now we know what to expect. The benchmark results show a single-core score of 3623 and a multi-core score of 11367. The device used in the test was the Black Shark 2 running Android 9.0 with 11,506 MB of RAM. Breaking the performance out by category, the Geekbench results give a crypto... Read more...
The Core i9-9900K is among the fastest processors that Intel makes available for the mainstream/enthusiast segment of the market. The processor is part of Intel's 9th generation Core family, has 8 cores/16 threads along with a base clock of 3.6GHz and single-core boost of 5GHz. However, AMD is gunning for Intel in a big way with its lineup of Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 processors. We've already seen a number of overclocked benchmarks for the top dog Ryzen 9 3950X, but now we're getting some stock numbers for the 12-core/24-thread Ryzen 9 3900X which sits just below it in AMD's processor hierarchy. New Geekbench results discovered by TUM_APISAK show that this 12-core... Read more...
AMD has sparked a lot of interest and discussion in the enthusiast community with its official rollout of the Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 family. When the processors were officially unveiled late last month, we were led to believe that the family topped out with the 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X. However, this week in Los Angeles, AMD rolled out the 16-core/32-thread Ryzen 9 3950X which brings a tremendous amount of power down to the mainstream AM4 socket (X370, X470, X570). Now we're getting some additional insight into how the Ryzen 9 3950X is fairing against the competition from Intel, and things are looking pretty good. Notorious hardware leaker TUM_APISAK uncovered Geekbench scores for... Read more...
AMD Zen 2 mania is an all-time high, and it looks as though we're getting a glimpse at what the company could be offering at the low-end of the Ryzen 3000 desktop processor family. New Geekbench numbers have appeared ahead of AMD's official launch, and they depict a 6-core, 12-thread processor with the codename Matisse (which of course is Zen 2). Before we get into the actual performance numbers, this processor has a base clock of 3.2GHz and a boost frequency of 4GHz. If we look back at previous leaked coverage of AMD's Ryzen 3000 family, this appears to match exactly with the Ryzen 3 3300 that we reported on back in early March, and the chip is expected to be priced around the...

It will not be long before OnePlus formally introduces its next flagship phones, the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro, which are expected to arrive in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, some benchmark scores are starting to pop up. Over at Geekbench, there are at least three sets of scores for a "OnePlus GM1917," all of which crack the 11,000 mark in the multi-score test. The OnePlus GM1917 is the OnePlus 7 Pro variant. Assuming there is no funny business going on with the database entries, the upcoming handset is looking like a strong contender. Here is a look at the scores that have popped up in the database so far... We cannot say for sure if those scores are legitimate. If they are, then the... Read more...
It would not be the start of a new week without a Pixel 3a leak, but not to worry, the Internet did not let us down. Over at Geekbench, there is a new database entry for what is labeled as a Pixel 3a, to go along with single-core and multi-core scores for a Pixel 3a XL that appeared in the database a few weeks ago. Together, the entries give us an idea of what kind of hardware to expect. Before we dive into the numbers, the usual caveat apply. These scores should be taken with a grain of salt, because it is impossible to know (A) if they are legit, and (B) if they are indicative of an earlier prototype or a later revision that is likely to be close to the final release. That out of the way, the... Read more...
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 the model number SM-G975U. While it doesn't specifically say "Galaxy S10+," the same model number... 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), clocked at 1.71GHz. The listing also shows the phone as having 6GB of system RAM. We're a bit skeptical... 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 score of 7828. Those benchmark scores are better than the previous generation MacBook Air could muster...

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 850. For reference, the Snapdragon 835-powered ASUS NovaGo achieves single- and multi-core scores of... 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 Snapdragon 845 is Qualcomm's fastest mobile chip to date, after all, and the Snapdragon 855 is not... 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 is 4.5GHz. Other specs called out in the benchmark results include 16GB of LPDDR3 RAM running at... 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 the smartphone destined for some markets outside the U.S. The Geekbench results show a single-core score...
