Dimensity 9000 Leading Non-gaming Flagship
Today is the first day of May, AnTuTu announced the Android flagship performance rankings for the entire month of April in the morning, in which MediaTek’s Dimensity 9000 leading non-gaming flagship.
According to the list, the gaming phones are still far ahead in the performance ranking, the top three are Snapdragon 8 Gen1 gaming phones, respectively, Black Shark 5 Pro (1062747 points), RedMagic 7 Pro off-screen version (1032494 points), and Legion Y90 gaming phone (1023934 points).
The three are not only strong in core performance, but also more aggressive in storage, scheduling, and heat dissipation, such as SSD flash memory solution, active heat dissipation system, etc., which makes the performance output more durable and powerful, which is also the reason for higher runtime score.
Of the three major gaming phones, the first ranking among regular phones is the just-released Vivo X80, the biggest highlight of the machine is equipped with the Dimensity 9000 chip and equipped with all the flagship specifications, including storage, fast charging, performance, etc., is a veritable Dimensity flagship.
And the performance of the Dimensity 9000 did not disappoint, with an average score of 1019921, taking the position of the king of regular (non-gaming) smartphone performance.
The Dimensity 9000 uses TSMC’s 4nm process and consists of 1 Cortex-X2 mega-core, 3 Cortex-A710 large cores, and 4 Cortex-A510 small cores, with ARM Mali-G710 GPU, making it the biggest rival to the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 today.
In addition, the other models on the list are all Snapdragon 8 Gen1 flagships, namely: iQOO 9, iQOO 9 Pro, Vivo X Note, iQOO Neo6, Xiaomi 12 Pro, Realme GT2 Pro.
Then look at the sub-flagship performance list, Snapdragon 870, Dimensity 8100, Dimensity 1200, and other processors are classified as sub-flagships.
The list shows that the first ranking is Redmi K50 with an average score of 814,032, equipped with Dimensity 8100 processor, CPU consists of four 2.85GHz Cortex-A78 large cores and four 2.0GHz A55 energy-efficient cores, still with Armv8 instruction set, and GPU integrated with six-core Arm Mali-G610.
After previous tests, the performance of the Dimensity 8100 is comparable to the Snapdragon 888, far beyond the Snapdragon 870, but the power consumption is quite stable, such as the Redmi K50 is not the main gaming phone, but the body heat is not obvious, power consumption control is quite excellent.
Dimensity 8100 main advantage is the GPU, the six-core Mali-G610 lives up to expectations, GPU scores exceed 300,000, as the next flagship, Dimensity 8100 is currently the highest performance, no one.
In second place is Realme GT Neo 3 which is also equipped with Dimensity 8100, about the competition between these two said after the cost performance list, first look at the performance, compared to the sub results, K50 ahead of the high refresh rate straight screen brought UX results, as well as IO Turbo brings storage advantages, but for the tuning of Dimensity 8100, GT Neo 3 is better, CPU/GPU frequency, after all, the cooling configuration keeps up.
In other words, the GT Neo 3 is slightly ahead of the K50 in terms of performance compared to the two (existing system versions), but it’s all about the Dimensity 8100, so there’s no difference in absolute performance, so there’s no need to compare every cent.
Third place is equipped with Snapdragon 870 iQOO Neo5 Vital Edition, and other Snapdragon 870 models are different, the machine has an enhanced version of UFS 3.1 flash memory, so MEM results ahead of the rest of the list.
Finally, the mid-range phone performance list, Snapdragon 7 series, Dimensity 900 series as a watershed.
Last year, due to the lack of core conditions, mid-range processor updates slowed down, Qualcomm only Snapdragon 778G optional, which can be seen from the list of models in the first place is equipped with Snapdragon 778G iQOO Z5, mid-range has not been released for a few days, so the list has not changed much compared to previous issues.
This issue added a new sub-flagship section to fill the gap between the flagship and mid-range while incorporating more models to compare performance at a glance.
The mid-range side has been joined by new machines, but suffering from a lack of a core, not many processors available, the performance gap is not large, I hope the subsequent release of a new platform can be improved.
