AppleInsider runs Apple’s iPhone XS Max and Google’s all-new Pixel 3 through a vintage of tests to see which of the two flagship members dominate the highest. In this first part of our special video series we compare the iPhone’s A12 Bionic processor to Pixel 3’s Snapdragon silicon.
Google chose to run its latest Pixel smartphone with Qualcomm’s Octa-core Snapdragon 845, the same chip found in Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Both performance and efficiency cores are clocked once slower than the galaxy at 2.5 GHz and 1
.5 GHz respectively. The processor is supported by 4GB of RAM, while an Adreno 630 GPU drives graphics for the 5.5-inch handset.
Apple’s state-of-the-art iPhone 2018 is powered by the new A12 Bionic chip, a six-core system-on-chip with two high-performance cores and four efficiency cores running at a clock speed of 2.49GHz. An integrated Apple-designed 4-core GPU crunches graphics data.
Using the Geekbench 4-CPU, the iPhone XS Max more than doubles Pixel 3 in single-core performance with a score of 4,816 points compared to only 2,393. The gap is not as wide in several cores, but XS Max still sticks with Pixel 3 with a score of 11,584 compared to 8,312.
Apple’s hardware recovered better than Geekbench graphics, scoring 22,278 points to Google’s 13,845 points.
Next up, Antutus is the graphic intensive benchmark. Pixel 3 did quite well with 284 546 points but could not compete with the iPhone XS Max, which clasped the needle at 363 687. If you look at the detailed results, iPhone Pixel 3 beat in each test except memory.
tube on Antutus HTML 5 test made XS Max approximately 35 percent higher than Pixel 3, with respective results of 46,531 and 34,674.
In Octane 2.0, another browser, the difference was huge. XS Max dropped a score of 43,220, almost three times Pixel 3s 16,396. This test is a good illustration of Apple’s hardware and software optimization.
For our final test, we ran the GFXBench OpenGLs 1080p Manhattan Offscreen test. Again, we saw a significantly higher score on XS Max, which managed 120 pixels per second compared to 83fps on Pixel 3.
Based on these results, there is no doubt that XS Max is the superiority in terms of performance. Google Pixel 3 has an underwhelming performance, which in some cases consisted of Galaxy Note 9.
