The Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 is a mid-ranged beast of a SoC if these benchmarks are true.
Qualcomm’s soon-to-be-launched Snapdragon 660 octa-core chipset landed on AnTuTu recently, uploaded by the usual leaksters at Weibo. Thanks to their efforts, we’re given a glimpse into the performance – albeit synthetic – of Qualcomm’s next mid-range line-up.
Synthetic benchmarks aren’t the end-all-be-all when it comes to device performance, but they’re still a useful indicator of a device’s relative power and tiering when compared to others.
The alleged Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 device at AnTuTu scored a high 105576, which is pretty good for a mid-range offering. For reference, the flagship tier Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 scores around 130K+ depending on the device.
According to the rumor grapevine, the Snapdragon 660 packs Kryo octa-cores similar to the still-unannounced Snapdragon 835 – 4x ARM Cortex A73 CPUs clocked at 2.2GHz + 4x ARM Cortex A53 CPUs clocked at 1.9GHz.
