Qualcomm has a PC processor that is 50% faster than the Intel Core Ultra

According to these performance tests, the Snapdragon X Elite from Qualcomm is up to 50% faster than the range Core Ultra from Intel, based on measurements obtained through the Geekbench application in version 6.2 and which are added to those published months ago in which performance was compared with Apple’s M2, the range AMD Phoenix and Raptor Intel Lake.

Snapdragon X Elite vs Intel Core Ultra

The Qualcomm processor used to carry out this comparison is the 12-core model in a custom computer. The equipment used to perform the test is managed: ASUS Zenbook 14 with the Intel Core Ultra 7 155H and the ASUS ROG Zephyrus M16 with the Intel Core Ultra 9 185H processor.

Performance with a core

Based on testing using one core, the Snapdragon Core Ultra 9 185H and up to 54% more performance at full power than the Core Ultra 7 155H. In both cases, the power consumption of the Qualcomm processor was 65% lower than the Intel models.

Multi-threaded performance

In terms of performance with all available cores, the Qualcomm Snapdragon It showed a power 41% higher than the Intel Core Ultra 9 185H and 52% higher than the Intel Core Ultra 7 155H. In both cases, power consumption was between 58 and 60% lower than the Intel models.

Graphic section

To measure the graphical performance of the integrated GPU in the Intel Core Ultra and Snapdragon X Elite processors, the application has been used 3DMark with the Wildlife Extreme test. On this occasion, once again Adreno graphic (of which the number of cores is unknown) that manages the graphics section of the Qualcomm ARM processor surpasses the architecture Alchemist Arc Xe-LPG with 8 Xe cores of the Intel Core Ultra 7 155H by 31% with half the consumption.

In this comparison, the results obtained by the AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS were also shown, a processor that was far behind both models. AMD’s RDNA 3 architecture has proven to be one of the best options in the field of video games, which is why the result obtained in these tests is especially striking.

x86 condemned to disappear in laptops

It is striking that Qualcomm did not also use the M3 processors of Apple in this comparison, despite having hinted on different occasions that this new generation of laptop processors has nothing to envy of Intel’s range of chips. What these tests do reveal is that the x86 architecture is doomed to disappear, at least within the portable equipment segment.

We must keep in mind that these are synthetic tests, not real performance tests using video games. The only example of performance that we have seen from the Snapdragon X Elite is a video that was published a few days ago in which a computer managed by this processor was shown running Baldur’s Gate 3 at 1080p resolution and 30 FPS.
