Chinese smartphone brand, Xiaomi, is doing quite well in the smartphone market. The company recently regained its No. 1 spot in India after briefly losing it to Samsung. A new smartphone from the company recently appeared on GeekBench. The Redmi Note 12 Pro (22101316C) appeared on the Geekbench 5 benchmarking platform yesterday. This smartphone comes with a MediaTek Dimensity 1080 as well as 6GB of RAM. The Geekbench 5 running points show that the Dimensity 1080 has a single-core running score of 767. In addition, it has a multi-core running score of 2008. In comparison, its performance is similar to that of the Dimensity 920.
Dimensity 1080 is basically Dimensity 920
The MediaTek Dimensity 1080 was released on October 11. It is manufactured using TSMC’s 6nm process. This chip also has an octa-core CPU. It has 2 ARM Cortex-A78 cores with a frequency of 2.6GHz. It also comes with 6 ARM Cortex-A55 cores with a frequency of up to 2GHz. The MediaTek Dimensity 920 also comes with 2 ARM Cortex-A78 cores with a frequency of 2.5GHz. It also uses a 6 ARM Cortex-A55 cores with a frequency of 2GHz. Judging from the parameters on paper, the Dimensity 1080 is indeed just a small overclocked version of the Dimensity 920. Of course, the performance difference can not be so much.
