Performance

We already had a piece on chipsets and performance of the Sony Xperia X in our blog, but now we'll go into more detail.

The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 650 chipset. This means you acquire the recent Cortex-A72 cores - better, faster than the A57 they replace - but only two of them. They are paired with four Cortex-A53's so the chipset is a replacement of the Snapdragon 808 (2x A57 + 4X A53). That said, this chipset is built on the older 28nm process while the Snapdragon 808 was built using the 20nm process.


Despite this fact, in multi-core Central Processing Units (CPU) speed, the Xperia X does better than the LG Nexus 5X with S808, and it even matches the Xperia Z5, which uses an S810 chipset.

AnTuTu 6 and Baseimprint Operating System (OS) II 2.0 have a positive view of the performance. They place it well ahead of the HTC One A9 and the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016), premium mid-rangers that compete for a similar spot as the Xperia X. It's not a flagship but it tops the Xperia Z5.

The chipset also brings a recent GPU - Adreno 510. It's a recent generation graphics chip, and it only has to drive a 1080p screen. It's not as quick as the Snapdragon 810 graphics, but it does close to double the frames per second of its immediate competitors.

The Adreno 510 supports the latest developments in mobile 3D graphics, so we ran OpenGL ES 3.1 benchmarks as well.

While we would have appreciated the Snapdragon 652 (it has two extra A72 cores), the 650 offers satisfactory performance for a premium midranger. If you're after more bang for the buck, however, the price tag of the X will sdiscontinue you looking elsewhere.
