We can better compare what are the technical differences between the two processors.

Price: For technical reasons, we cannot currently display a price less than 24 hours, or a real-time price. This is why we prefer for the moment not to show a price. You should refer to the respective online stores for the latest price, as well as availability.

We see that the two processors have an equivalent number of cores, the turbo frequency of Qualcomm MSM8998 Snapdragon 835 is bigger, that the thermal dissipation power of Qualcomm MSM8998 Snapdragon 835 is less. The Qualcomm MSM8998 Snapdragon 835 was started more recently.

Performances :

Performance comparison between the two processors, for this we consider the results generated on benchmark software such as Geekbench 4.

AnTuTu - Total score
Nvidia Tegra X1 T210 224,500
Qualcomm MSM8998 Snapdragon 835 199,273

The difference is 13%.

AnTuTu is one of the most popular apps in the world to evaluate and compare the power of a mobile device with the competition. It tests above all the power of calculation, the display of Web pages, the modeling of decorations in 3D, the management of the memory, the transfer of data.

On Android 64-bit:

Geekbench 4 - Multi-core & single core score - Android 64-bit
Qualcomm MSM8998 Snapdragon 835 1,855
Nvidia Tegra X1 T210 1,158

In single core, the difference is 60%. In multi-core, the difference in terms of gap is 93%.
