There’s only one way to say it: the Snapdragon 888+ 5G Mobile Platform blew away the competition in the latest MLPerf Mobile Inference v1.1 benchmark submissions. In one assessment that tested Image Classification (single stream), Snapdragon topped the nearest non-Snapdragon competitor by more than 40%. Check out the results:
MLCommons is an open engineering consortium that has been working in the direction of creating machine learning benchmarks for training and inference testing platforms. Its MLPerf Mobile Inference is a highly regarded full-system benchmark, measuring processing speed of common AI use cases on smartphones: Image Classification (classifying the object in an image), Object Detection (detecting the objects in an image), Image Segmentation (cropping out the object in an image), and natural language processing (analyzing human language).
Snapdragon 888+ is Qualcomm Technologies’ no-holds barred, all in, premium performance mobile platform, showcasing our latest breakthroughs in processing and AI — including our Qualcomm Hexagon 780 Processor with our 6th generation of the Qualcomm AI Engine.
Snapdragon 888+’s performance is the result of Qualcomm Technologies AI engineers’ tireless efforts to continually raise the bar of the company’s flagship Snapdragon 8 Series 5G Mobile Platform and ensure smartphone makers and consumers are getting premium AI performance and experiences. The MLPerf Inference Benchmark results only strengthen our resolve.
The Snapdragon 8 Series has been “topping the charts” regularly on AI benchmarks. Here’s how the Snapdragon 888+ in particular, stacked up against the competition on other benchmarks:
