[TechSpot] Qualcomm pits its Snapdragon 8cx against Intel's i5 8250U in benchmarks

Quote:
Qualcomm ran the 7W Snapdragon 8cx against Intel’s 15W Core-i5 8250U mobile processor using 3D Mark and PCMark. In the application benchmark, the 8cx was ahead in more tests than Intel’s chip, while it beat the i5 8250U soundly in a graphics benchmark and battery life test. It’s worth noting, though, that a 2K screen was used for Intel’s model, while Qualcomm’s design uses an FHD display, helping put the Adreno 680 ahead of the UHD Graphics 620.

I wonder what they mean when they say 2k screen because there really isn't much difference between 2k (2048x1080) and FHD (1920x1080). I have seen people use the incorrectly 2k reference when talking about 1440p though. It doesn't really seem worth noting unless they meant something higher than what 2k resolution is.

It irks me so much that sites have been referring to 1440p as 2k, but I assume that is what they mean. I have not seen/heard 2048x1080 being referred to in a LONG time.

So Intel has to cheat with its new processors to win against AMD in the mobile segment, and it is now also losing to ARM when Snapdragon chips are using even less power? lol. Intel needs to get itself together again.

If 3840x2160 is 4K then 2560x1440 is 2K?

Both those conventions are pretty bad. What is wrong with 1440p and 2160p to stay comparable to 480p, 720p, and 1080p? &#x1f61e;

Blame marketing gimmicks. 2160p is "only" 2x more than 1080p, but obviously it's 4x the pixel count since it's 2x in both dimensions. So some clever marketing guy decided to just call it "4k" and then claim it's 4x the pixels against 1080p. I mean technically he's not wrong, but yeah the naming convention really gets screwed up. If 3840x2160 is 4k, surely 1920x1080 must be 2k?

Well, the 4k term is used by cinema production where they actually have true 4k resolution of 4096x2160. But since TVs has to keep the standard ratio of 16:9 and keep the perfect 2x scaling on both horizontal and vertical pixel count from 1080p, they went with 3840x2160 but it is still a part of 4k standard....so the reason why they are called 4K tv.
