LG G4: Snapdragon 808 outperforms 810 in heavy use

by Jerry

It's no longer a secret that the LG G4 has a Snapdragon 808 processor where it was expected with a Snapdragon 810 like the HTC One M9, LG G Flex 2 or Sony Xperia Z4. Whatever the reasons that led LG to make this choice, Ars Technica who is currently testing the beast has just published an interesting comparative study between the two Soc, benchmarks to support.

  • On the same subject: LG G4, why LG opted for a Snapdragon 808

The LG G4 processor has been scrutinized.

Let's start by looking at the technical characteristics of both processors.

In order to verify the performance of the Snapdragon 808 over time, Ars Technica used the same test protocol as for the Snapdragon 810. A private version of Geekbench that will solicit only two cores at a time for a period of 15 minutes to define how the Soc behaves as part of a real use and determine if there is a drop in performance. In this case, the G4 was confronted with the Galaxy S6 (Exynos 7420), the LG G Flex 2 (Snapdragon 810) and the Galaxy Note 4 (Snapdragon 805)

Of course, it is mainly the comparison with the S810 that interests us here, and for good reason since the Snapdragon 808 is simply more stable and has much less tendency to heat. As a result, the throttling mechanism starts less frequently and performance is not affected. The Snapdragon 808 maintains its maximum frequency for much of the test while the 810 drops rapidly to 900 MHz.

Of course, when compared to the Galaxy S6 and Note 4 Soc, the G4 processor is at a disadvantage, especially compared to the Snapdragon 805, which maintains a stable and high frequency for most of the duration of the test.

To go further, Ars Technica then compared the performance of the Snapdragon 808 and Snapdragon 810 to hot and cold. As you will see, the discrepancy is much smaller in the case of Qualcomm's hexa core chip, which still leads us to the same conclusion as in the case of the previous study.
