In this world of competition, everything is moving like an athlete. Recently, Snapdragon has launched Snapdragon 888 in the competition with Apple A14 bionic. As we know Apple is quite powerful in terms of optimizations and enhancements. This is our take on Apple Snapdragon 888 VS A14 Bionic Chipset.

In other words, Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 easily beats the Apple A14 Bionic chipset if you compare it on paper. Snapdragon 888 comes with a more powerful modem that can easily give faster speeds. Apple has released its A14 bionic chipset with Qualcomm’s X55 modem.

The new iPhones come with the new improved processor chip. Apple’s A14 Bionic chipset world’s fastest mobile chip right now. The A14 Bionic is more likely equipped with the AI engine and advanced neural engine inside it. iPhone 12 has this chip inside it. On the other hand, the Snapdragon 888 is going to be available in Poco F3 Pro, OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro, Oppo Find X3, and so on.

Snapdragon 888 VS A14 Bionic

A14 Bionic

1.The A14 Bionic is built on a 5nm processor and has Hexa-CPU cores, 4-GPU cores, and a 16-core neural engine.

2.The A14 Bionic has 11.8 billion transistors.

3.The CPU’s six cores are broken into four high-efficiency cores and two high-performance cores. Apple claimed the offering’s 40% faster than the previous generation and that graphics, via four cores, are 30% faster.

4.Apple’s neural engine has now 16 cores for 11 trillion operations per second.

5.A14 Bionic supports new WIFI 6 and updated technologies.

Snapdragon 888

1.The GPU in Snapdragon 888 comes with Adreno 660 which is used in Enhancing Gaming and GPU Performance.

2.Snapdragon 888 comes with Kryo 680 CPU. It will be based on the latest Arm v8 Cortex tech.

3.Because of the latest Cortex-X1 and Cortex-A78 cores performance in the Snapdragon 888 gets a huge uplift To work better faster.

4.Qualcomm is working on the 100w charging. Smartphone makers are working on 120w, 144w charging standards. And to support this change processor needs to get an upgrade.

5.The modem for Snapdragon is X60 with 5nm fabrication for great power efficiency.

Hardware and Performance

A14 Bionic chip uses the new 5nm EUV fabrication from TSMC. This new fabrication provides 80% more logic density however, Snapdragon 888 uses a similar TSMC 5nm process. Recently on a new update about Qualcomm, we got to know they have ordered the fabrication from Samsung. So, According to the sources, Snapdragon 888 is based on the Samsung 5nm EUV process But it’s not properly assured.

Snapdragon 888 promises better performance, superior experience, and gaming experience than the Apple A14 bionic. New phones which will be equipped with Snapdragon 888 will be the OnePlus 9 series, Realme Ace, Mi 11 Pro, etc.

A14 bionic and Snapdragon 888 comes with the latest 5nm manufacturing process. The best thing is Apple A14 Bionic is set up n Firestorm and Icestorm monikers. If we compare A14 Bionic to Snapdragon 888, Qualcomm’s 888 is based on the shelf parts from the default Arm.

AI Capabilities

Apple A14 features the 11TOPs of AI inferencing performance which is 83 percent more than the 6TOPs on Bionic A13. Snapdragon 888 comes with 26TOPs for AI which gives a 73 percent increase. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G platform uses a 6th generation Qualcomm AI Engine.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 sports a newly re-engineered Qualcomm Hexagon processor and 2nd generation Qualcomm Sensing Hub for lower-power always-on AI processing.

Benchmark Scores Snapdragon 888 vs Apple A14 Bionic

Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 scores are whopping with 743894 points in AnTuTu v8 whereas Apple A14 scores are lower than this which’s 680174. WhereasQualcomm Snapdragon 888 Geekbench score is 3350 points for single-core and 13215 points for multi-core. On the other hand, the Apple A14 Bionic chipset Geekbench Score For Single Core is 1658 and for Multicore Score is 4612.

Based on multiples tests on the AnTuTu benchmark app, Apple A14 Bionic has a Geekbench score of 1,658 in single-core and on multi-core, its 3,930 scores. However, Snapdragon 888 has a Geekbench score of single-core points is 4,759 on multi-core points is 14,915.


Based on current cases, we have seen that both of the chipset Apple A14 bionic and the Snapdragon 888 chipset scores almost the same in all manners. Although they are diff on the sheet, obviously we will see more practical samples with Snapdragon 888 in the upcoming Galaxy S21 and many more smartphones. But it is for sure that an amazing camera is coming on the way.
