The Samsung Exynos has nudged ahead of Qualcomm's Snapdragon, according to initial tests of the latest SoCs with a new Android benchmark released today.
Interesting to know that Samsung Exynos has nudged ahead of Qualcomm's Snapdragon. I am curious to know if these are the final numbers or initial numbers because it is mentioned as initial tests in the article ?
Based on the screenshot, "device score" looks like an overall score that actually includes 3D, and if it is to be of any use, this overall score should be taken by itself. Therefore, the older (?) snapdragon is better than the exynos, which is better than the newer snapdragon.
This basically means that either qualcomm are incapable of improving upon themselves, or that this benchmark's overall score is useless: I'm betting on the overall score being useless. better look each individual test score and get an idea of what type of computation each of these devices is better at than rely on an unproven overall score
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments?
