In the field of mobile processors, the performance of Apple’s A-Series chips has been a mountain of mountains. In the past few years, Apple’s A-Series chips have been significantly better than Qualcomm, Samsung, Huawei and all android chips. Of course, Apple A-Series chips are self-developed and can be expanded to take advantage of the obvious innate advantage.

Qualcomm yesterday officially unveiled its latest flagship snapSnapdragon 865 platform. In previous GeekBench runs, the SnapSnapdragon 865 has a single core of more than 4,000 points, while the multi-core has exceeded 13,000 points. That means the SnapSnapdragon 865 chip multi-core running score is close to the A13 chip six months ago, but the A13’s single-core run score is still at the 5000 level, far more than any of its competitors.
In an interview today with Katuzan, general manager and senior vice president of Qualcomm’s mobile business, Sina Technology raised the question: Qualcomm’s competitors may be Huawei, but with SnapSnapdragon 865’s Android flagship, their opponent is actually the iPhone. Apple’s A-Series chips are significantly ahead of the SnapDragon 8 series in performance. Although Apple has innate advantages, but Qualcomm in the future through technological breakthroughs, in the future beyond Apple A-Series chips?
However, Katuzan disagrees with the issue. He explained that Apple’s past processors, including the latest A13, are designed for maximum power, while Qualcomm’s design is designed for optimum power and continuous performance. There is a marked difference between the two.
Katuzan elaborated that if the performance curve of a Qualcomm chip were to be used consistently in terms of the continued use of an application, the performance curve would be flat, while Apple’s A-chip would be volatile. For example, running a game on the A13 and SnapSnapdragon 865 platforms simultaneously, whether it’s half an hour or an hour, the SnapDragon865 can maintain consistent performance, while the A13’s performance fluctuates dramatically over time. For example, the A13 chip will sacrifice performance due to thermal problems, after the temperature drop slower to improve performance, performance is not stable.
He stressed that the Snapdragon 865 chip is superior to the A13 chip in terms of the continued performance of the CPU and GPU. And Qualcomm is significantly better than Apple in terms of application processors, such as camera and AI performance. So the Android flagship with the Snapdragon 865 is superior to the iPhone’s flagship in terms of performance continuity.
