GPU Performance

GPU performance of the new OnePlus 8 devices should be interesting as we finally have more Snapdragon 865 platforms at hand to test, beyond the initial Galaxy S20 scores that we were able to showcase a few months ago.

Basemark GPU 1.2 - Medium 1440p - Off-Screen / Blit

Starting off with BaseMark GPU 1.2, we’re seeing some very good results from both OnePlus 8 phones. Although peak performance is just a tad little bit lower than the Galaxy S20 Ultra, both OnePlus phones are able to showcase much better sustained performance figures with essentially no throttling after prolonged usage.

GFXBench Aztec Ruins - High - Vulkan/Metal - Off-screen GFXBench Aztec Ruins - Normal - Vulkan/Metal - Off-screen GFXBench Manhattan 3.1 Off-screen GFXBench T-Rex 2.7 Off-screen

The same characteristic of both OnePlus phones having essentially matched peak and sustained performance figures is essentially mimicked in all other GFXBench tests. Again, this comes at a contrast of our first impression of the Snapdragon 865 that we tested in the S20.

I’ve since then also been able to test the LG V60 and the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro to have a wider repertoire of Snapdragon 865 phones and all of them seem to perform similarly to the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro, showcasing excellent sustained performance characteristics.

The OnePlus 8 phones had excellent thermal behaviour during the stress tests, with the phone never exceeding ~37-38°C peak skin temperatures which points out to fantastic heat dissipation from the SoC to the whole phone body.

These new test results finally give meaning to Qualcomm’s initial claims of excellent thermal behaviour of the new chipset and that it is able to indefinitely maintain its peak performance. Both OnePlus 8 phones are able to materialise this claim and will have no issues with providing excellent performance in games.

    You call others “sheep” while you, yourself ask that Apple make their own displays, rather than relying on Samsung. Which is retarded.

    After using a Samsung flagship for the past two years, I absolutely refuse to consider any phone that has a curved screen.

    Absolutely agree. Maintainance and protection are an absolute nightmare. Hopefully the new note 20 will ditch the curved screens in at least some models.

    This phone is even better than the s20 line & way cheaper than them
    This phone is the pioneer of android os at this moment
    The android experience is top notch 👌
    One plus has done an excellent job
    Hope Samsung takes cues from one plus
    Many manufacturers need to learn from one plus
    How pure android skin shines

    Hope you're getting paid to post this promotion of another Chinesium phone with CCP spyware built in the back door.
    Now get back to cleaning toilets and learning English as a second language.

    Uhh, but OnePlus is a leader in Android software support. They have a proven history of supporting their devices years later, even longer than Google, plus, they seem to participate in Android betas, though this year it looks delayed. Once Android 11 beta expands beyond Pixel, OnePlus will be there. This may be the benefits of releasing only 2-3 phones a year. Samsung is objectively bad at software, they have unique features, but they are also slow to resolve issues/bugs in those features. And having either the carrier variant or unlocked from Samsung, updates are a scattered mess.

    Chinese spy, USA spy, Israel spy...whatever. All phones are compromised.

    Personal attacks instead of listing rational points just make you look pathetic
