Today, the AnTuTu score of a smartphone with Qualcomm’s latest flagship processor, Snapdragon 8 Gen1 appeared online. The AnTuTu database score of this smartphone shows that it scores 1,025,215 points. This shows that the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 score exceeds Dimensity 9000 score with 17,819 points. Recall that an engineering model of the Dimensity 9000 scores 1007396 points on AnTutu. This makes the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 the most powerful chip in the Android camp. However, there are some important points to note. Firstly, the point difference is insignificant and may not reflect actual performance. Secondly, these are only engineering models, and the real deal may be significantly different.
However, AnTuTu’s Weibo handle claims that the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 cores are real and effective. The CPU clocks at 2995.2MHz and the GPU model is Adreno 730. Furthermore, AnTuTu claims that the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 performance is a significant improvement from the Snapdragon 888 model. The former has an average performance increase of about 20%. The GPU performance increases significantly by about 37.5%. The GPU score of the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 is 447,926 points.
Gizchina News of the week
In most cases, after mass production, the performance of these processors will increase. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen1 is a flagship processor that uses Samsung’s 4nm manufacturing process. It comes with a large core Cortex X2 clocking 3.0GHz. It also has a Cortex-A710 medium core (2.5GHz) as well as a Cortex-A510 small core (1.79GHz).
Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen1 is more expensive than MediaTek Dimensity 9000
MediaTek released the Dimensity 9000 processor a few days ago, and Qualcomm will release the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor next week. The two major 5G processors have been upgraded with 4nm technology and new architecture. The competition between these processors will be fierce and Dimensity 9000 will want to grab some flagship smartphones. According to reports from @DCS, both flagship processors will be very expensive. The Dimensity 9000 is almost twice the price of its predecessor, Dimensity 1200. However, the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 is still more expensive than the Dimensity 9000.
With regards to the 5nm Dimensity 7000, @DCS claims that this chip will arrive after Q1 next year. Qualcomm will also have an iterative upgrade of the Snapdragon 7 series processor. The main goal is to replace the Snapdragon 870 in the mid-range market, but the Dimensity 7000 feedback is better.
It should be noted that the relative prices referred to by @DCS are for a set of chips rather than a single processor price. This is because the Dimensity 9000 or Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 that manufacturers bought from MediaTek and Qualcomm are not a single processor, and there are supporting parts.
