    I wonder if this is from the priv, 64 bit os on android 5.1.1, the results look more like a snapdragon 801 but the chip is definitely a 808, I am surprised the results are that low

    Compared to what? The results say it is from a Priv, but it is not likely to be from a final production model, and we don't know who did the test and under what conditions.

    They have just received the certificate from PTCRB for 2 devices, so I think it will launch soon and we can check it .

    blackberry STV100-3 - Geekbench Browser <--- Results page.

    As for the testing, well, it's one test, which isn't really enough to base anything off of. You would need several as a rundown.

    And, we're all looking forward to your real world test.

    The phone could have been running various apps in the background and cpu usage was not dedicated to the benchmark.

    1.44GHz?
    Priv Specs from Shop Blackberry:

    • Qualcomm 8992 with 64 bit Dual-core 1.8 GHz Cortex-A57 and Quad-core 1.44 GHz CortexA53 (Snapdragon 808 Hexa-Core, 64 bit)

    Geekbench 1.44 GHz must be coming from the quad-core portion of the processor. Geekbench shows only one frequency label, so I guess it picks one or the other.

    Searching Geekbench for non-blackberry phones with the same CPU as the Priv, yields results around 1150 / 3450 (give or take a 100). My guess would be that the production version of Priv will have a similar score.

    A more technie explanation is that the Snapdragon 808 is a 4+2 core processor rather than a full blown 6 core. General usage it uses the 4 1.44GHz cores, and when processing calls for it, the 2 1.8GHz fires up.

    Think cylinder deactivation in some large V8 engines, you cruise with 4-cylinders and when you floor it, all 8-cylinders kick in.

    I always thought it was a pretty efficient design. Why have idle cores sipping juice to do nothing, if you can have them turned off when not needed. I guess it's more costly to produce two CPUs stitched together this way than it is to create a monolithic 6-core, but given that the single-biggest-complaint of phone owners' is "battery life", making a more expensive but also more efficient CPU makes sense.

    I was going to end here but then I did some Wikipedia reading on the big.LITTE:

    If I'm interpreting the info correctly, the Snapdragon 808 design is such that it can assign low priority tasks to the slower/efficient cores and high-priority tasks to the faster/power-hungry ones, thus going a bit beyond the car cylinder analogy.

    And something else I just learned is that if you have an equal number of big and LITTLE cores (which unfortunately the 808 doesn't have) then you can switch a task from the efficient cores to the power-hungry ones when the task becomes intensive, and then shut down the efficient cores if not needed....and then presumably (I don't feel like reading about it more) going the other way around when an "intensive" task becomes a "background" one. Neat. I think that was introduced in the Snapdragon 820

    For most consumers, smartphones, like PCs, have pretty much become everyday appliances that just work.

    These results are a wee bit dissapointing. I get that Geekbench doesn't really relate to real world performance, but every review will mention it and if the single core performance is really pedestrian this will impact the reviews which will impact the sales.
    A lot of Samsung's sucess was based on essentially cheating in order to score highly in these tests which impacted reviewer experience which impacted sales.

    I think a lot of consumers finally stoped being stupid and realising that numbers in benchmark are like megapixels... can be very irrelevant to the overall performance.

    My point is that it impacts reviewers. Not consciously, but they're less likely to rave over speed when test numbers are pedestrian. So they hedge and say "it's not a complete speed demon" and with so much competition out there for people's bucks it impacts sales. Hopefully the final numbers will be better and the reviews are good. Blackberry have had a BIG oppertunity here. Reviewers are really desperate for more choice and will be better disposed to it than any Blackberry for years! Name, price etc are eating into this though.

    My only concern is battery life with this device. 808 being the perfect choice to maximize it.

    More geekbench scores have been appearing lately. Here's a search for "blackberry STV100":

    https://browser.primatelabs.com/geek...ckberry+STV100

    Priv geekbench ?-gb.jpg



    Looks to me like they are still optimizing the performance


    If you click through the results, there are two different processor IDs:

    ARM implementer 65 architecture 8 variant 0 part 3331 revision 3
    ARM implementer 65 architecture 8 variant 1 part 3335 revision 2

    Not sure what that means.

    Benchmark is a discussion among android users, because the OS runs slow when the spec is poor

    It's kinda sad that BlackBerry 10 is dying.. since it's smooth no matter dual core or octa core or deca core and so on
