Geekbench Tests Show Snapdragon X Elite Surpassing Intel and AMD Flagship CPUs in Speed

In simple terms: Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon X Elite processor for laptops last year, and these laptops will start being sold in mid-2024. As we get closer to their release, some details about their performance are appearing on benchmarking websites.

A Lenovo laptop with the Snapdragon X Elite chip appeared on Geekbench recently. It got a high score of 14,254 in tests that measure how well it handles many tasks at once, and 2,427 in tests that measure performance with one task. These scores are as good as or better than similar Intel and AMD chips.

For comparison, a typical Intel Core i9-13900H chip gets around 2,400 points for one task and 11,000 for many tasks. An AMD Ryzen 9 8945HS chip gets about 2,632 points for one task and 13,155 for many tasks. This suggests that the Snapdragon X Elite chip could perform similarly for one task and even better for many tasks compared to these flagship Intel and AMD chips.

Qualcomm recently said their Snapdragon X Elite processor is faster than Intel’s latest Meteor Lake mobile processors, like the Core Ultra 9 185H and Core Ultra 7 155H. These Intel chips have 16 cores each, with different max speeds.

Qualcomm claims that the Snapdragon X Elite is much faster than the Core Ultra 9 185H in tasks that use one core, and it uses less battery power for similar performance. In tasks that use many cores, the Snapdragon X Elite is also faster and uses less power than the Core Ultra 9 185H.

The Snapdragon X Elite is Qualcomm’s newest processor for laptops. It has 12 special CPU cores and can go up to 3.8 GHz. Devices with this chip will be available soon, and many big laptop brands will use it.
