Apple A17 Pro beats Snapdragon X Elite when tested in GravityMark

by alex

Alexander “Frustum” Zapryagaev, the creator of GravityMark, compared the mobile chip of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max with the latest new product from Qualcomm for laptops and received interesting results.

In March 2024, when introducing its latest Snapdragon X Elite processor, Qualcomm reported that it outperformed the Apple M3 by 21% in multi-core tests. However, recent testing conducted by Alexander Zapryagaev in the GravityMark graphics test shows that the laptop “dragon” is inferior to the A17 Pro mobile chip found in Apple’s flagship smartphones.

According to Zapryagaev , testing was carried out at a resolution of 2560×1440 on both devices to achieve the most fair result. It is worth considering that laptops based on Snapdragon X Elite have on board from 16 to 32GB of memory, while the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max have only 8GB.

Looking at the test results, you can see that they are within the statistical error. Thus, the A17 Pro received 3501 points, completing the test in 167.2 seconds and a frame rate of 20.9 fps, and the Snapdragon X Elite completed the test in the same time, but with a frame rate of 20.9 fps, and received 3421 points.

Although the results demonstrated by the Apple A17 Pro are impressive, it is worth remembering that GravityMark is just a synthetic test, and the difference in results was only 2.34%, which many would consider insignificant. It is also unknown whether GravityMark has been optimized for the Snapdragon X Elite processor. 

Snapdragon X Elite is now used in many laptops from Microsoft, Dell, Lenovo and Samsung with Windows 11 and shows that it can compete with chips from Apple, but we must wait for more detailed test comparisons before drawing conclusions .
