Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 805 processor may not be the biggest and baddest one on the market in the future. According to a new AnTuTu benchmark, Huawei’s own octa-core Kirin 920 processor performs just as good. The processor is arranged with four Cortex-A7 and four Cortex-A15 CPU with ARM big.LITTLE architecture and Mali-T624; however, it is unknown if all eight cores can actually run at the same time. While the Snapdragon 805 earned 37,780 points, Huawei’s Kirin 920 came scored 37,363. Not too bad right?

It is becoming increasingly clear that Qualcomm is gaining some competition, even beyond Huawei. Samsung continues to release new Exynos processors (for part of the world) and even LG is working on Odin for future devices. Then there is NVIDIA, who is still working on gaining some of the attention Qualcomm stole from them in the mobile market. If not 2014, 2015 will be a year for secondary processors to become more prevalent.

    Nvidia K1 is the best performer we’ve seen to date, but all that performance won’t mean anything if it isn’t used in any devices.

    I want to see 12 cores that are hyperthreaded and run at 3ghz plus integrated graphics comparable to Xbox One or Ps4. All in a flexible phone that has a 10hr battery life as in 10hr of screen on maxed out CPU use and all sensors on. Maybe 2017 lol.
