Yesterday we showed you some benchmarks that gave us the first disappointing new about the OnePlus 2 that we’ve seen since it was first announced, but it appears as though the results may have been incorrect. The initial results showed that the smartphone’s Snapdragon 810 processor was being underclocked, presumably to reduce overheating, but newer benchmarks show us that this isn’t actually the case. Why there are two different benchmarks for the same smartphone is unclear, but the most recent one is very impressive.
Remember yesterday we revealed an AnTuTu benchmark score of the OnePlus 2 with model number A2001. The scores posted on the benchmarking app was less than impressive, which led us to believe that OnePlus may have throttled the Snapdragon 810 inside the new flagship. However, earlier today, we came across another AnTuTu benchmark of the same OnePlus 2 A2001 model. This time it managed to score over 63,700 points! Yes, finally, we can see some powerful scores posted by the octa-core Snapdragon 810 chipset, which is even above the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro top version. But what does this mean? One possibility is that the 51K score was posted by a prototype model, which was throttled to a great extent. Even though 51K on AnTuTu is not a bad score, Snapdragon 801 was powerful enough to post the same score. So, a new generation chip like Snapdragon 810 is expected to at least beat this score by a nominal margin.
