Numerous smartphones are available, and nearly all of them have different chipsets. Each chipset shapes the user experience and has a long-term positive impact on the smartphone as it functions. In the smartphone industry, several new mobile processors are introduced every year. In addition, each one is better than the one before it. There is, however, a thin line between each processor’s capabilities and its price. Some are better for gaming, while others are great for taking pictures, and still, others are just great in general.
1. Apple A14 Bionic
Apple’s A14 Bionic System on a Chip (SoC) is used in the iPhone 12 and iPad Air (2020) models. It has six cores divided into two performance cores and four power-efficiency cores and was announced in late 2020.
2. Snapdragon 888
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G Mobile Platform is a high-end SoC for smartphones that were introduced in late 2020 and are made in a 5 nm process by Samsung.The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G Mobile Platform is a high-end SoC for smartphones that were introduced in late 2020 and are made in a 5 nm process by Samsung. One “Prime Core” based on an ARM Cortex-X1 architecture with a clock speed of up to 2.84 GHz is included. At 2.42 GHz, three additional performance cores are based on the A78 run.
3. Exynos 2100
The Exynos 2100 is a watershed moment for the company, and not just because it’s a 5nm design. Since the Exynos 7420 in 2015, this is the company’s first flagship SoC without custom CPU cores. The new SoC uses Arm’s Cortex cores exclusively, rather than Samsung’s Mongoose cores. One Arm Cortex-X1 core runs at 2.9GHz, three Cortex-A78 CPU cores run at 2.8GHz, and four Cortex-A55 cores running at 2.2GHz on the chipset.
4. Apple A13 Bionic
Apple Inc. designed the Apple A13 Bionic, a 64-bit ARM-based system on a chip (SoC). The iPhone 11, 11 Pro/Pro Max, and iPhone SE all have it (2nd generation). The two high-performance cores are 20% faster with 30% less power consumption than the Apple A12’s, and the four high-efficiency cores are 20% faster with 40% less power consumption than the A12’s, according to Apple.
5. Kirin 9000
The Huawei P40 Pro introduced the HiSilicon Kirin 9000, an ARM-based high-end octa-core SoC for smartphones and tablets. It has eight CPU cores divided into three clusters. For fast single-core performance, a single high-performance ARM Cortex-A77 core with up to 3.13 GHz is used. Three more performance cores (same Cortex-A77 architecture) with a clock speed of up to 2.54 GHz and four efficiency cores with a clock speed of up to 2.05 GHz based on the ARM Cortex-A55 architecture. At the same time, all eight cores can be utilized.
6. Kirin 9000E
The groundbreaking 22-core Mali-G78 GPU ensures uninterrupted gaming, while the brand-new Arm Cortex-A77 CPU ensures superior performance. AI video applications benefit from the use of two large and one small core. For camera functions, the NPU is equipped with an embedded Kirin ISP 6.0.
7. Exynos 1080
Samsung’s latest 5nm process is used to make the Exynos 1080. It has one 2.8GHz Cortex-A78 CPU core, three 2.6GHz Cortex-A78 CPU cores, and four 2GHz Cortex-A55 cores. It has a Mali-G78 GPU with 10 cores from ARM.
8. Snapdragon 865+
The SoC includes a 3.1 GHz ‘Prime Core’ and three more ARM Cortex-A77 performance cores with a clock speed of up to 2.42 GHz. Four power-saving ARM Cortex-A55 cores with a maximum clock speed of 1.8 GHz round out the package.
9. Dimensity 1200
The MediaTek Dimensity 1200 is equipped with one of the fastest smartphone octa-core CPUs ever: a 3GHz Arm Cortex-A78 that delivers the fastest response time, with up to a 22% increase in CPU speed and a 25% reduction in battery usage over the previous generation
10. Snapdragon 865
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 is a high-performance 64-bit ARM system on a chip that was released in late 2019. The 865 is built on TSMC’s superior 7nm (N7P) technology and includes four high-efficiency Kryo 585 Silver cores running at 1.8 GHz, three high-performance Kryo 585 Gold cores running at 2.42 GHz, and another prime Kryo 585 Gold core running at 2.84 GHz.
11. Dimensity 1100
All four Cortex-A78 cores are clocked at 2.6GHz. Even without greater clock speeds, 1100 has an architectural advantage over the Dimensity 1000+, hence it should outperform it in single and multi-core performance.
12. Snapdragon 780G
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 780G 5G is a fast ARM-based mid-range SoC that’s mostly seen in Android tablets and phones. It has eight (octa-core) cores distributed into three clusters.
13. Apple A12 Bionic
Apple Inc. built the Apple A12 Bionic, a 64-bit ARM-based system on a chip (SoC). It originally appears in the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR in 2018, as well as the 2019 models of the iPad Air and iPad Mini, the iPad 2020, and the Apple TV 4K in 2021. The Apple A12 SoC has a six-core 64-bit ARMv8.3-A CPU created by Apple, with two high-performance Vortex cores running at 2.49 GHz and four energy-efficient Tempest cores.
14. Dimensity 1000
The Dimensity 1000+ is a high-end SoC with a built-in 5G modem by Mediatek. It has four rapid ARM Cortex-A77 cores with clock speeds of up to 2.6 GHz and four power-efficient Cortex-A55 cores with clock speeds of up to 2 GHz.
15. Snapdragon 860
The SoC includes a fast 2.96 GHz ‘Prime Core’ and three additional fast ARM Cortex-A76 performance cores with a clock speed of up to 2.42 GHz. Four power-saving ARM Cortex-A55 cores with a maximum clock speed of 1.8 GHz round out the package.
