Artificial Intelligence (AI) has brought up new innovations in modern smartphones. It’s being used in mobile photography, performance and power management, and many more.
With that, are you curious about what mobile processor handles AI computations best? The AnTuTu best Android processors based on AI performance list for April 2020 have been revealed. It shows unsurprising winners and some controversial losers.
Bear in mind that the ranking was based on the average benchmark scores that these processors were able to obtain. The company didn’t reveal what specific smartphones that these tests were based on, but we expect that it was aggregated from different devices.
With that, taking the top spot is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 5G processor, where it got an average score of 459,193. That’s the same processor that’s powering the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro, which AnTuTu hailed as the best-performing Android smartphone for April.
Despite the people’s criticism, Samsung’s Exynos 990 processor came in at close second with a score of 439,295.
The Snapdragon 765/765 5G, although there’s a large gap, took the third spot with an average score of 249,908. This midrange processor appears to be slightly more AI-capable than last gen’s flagship chipsets, the Snapdragon 855 Plus and Snapdragon 855, who took the fourth (239,224) and fifth (236,907) spots, respectively.
OPPO Reno 3‘s MediaTek Helio P90 is at number 6 with a score of 189,317. Surprisingly overtaking the Dimensity 1000L (161,324) at the ninth spot.
We also have the Snapdragon 730/730G (187,275) and Exynos 9825 (166,549) taking seventh and eight seats.
But surprisingly enough, Huawei’s flagship Kirin 990 5G chipset took the last seat with a score of 122,845, despite having a dedicated NPU.
