AnonD-894375, 08 Jan 2021No one said SD675 is not powerful. We are talking about pow... more845 still ahead of 750 ma fren

    Wow Cortex A76 and adreno 619 comes down to SD4xx line up. This spec will make the - not so old - SD662,665,710,and 712 cry ,, especially the 7xx series which is the upper midrange to be overthrown by a entry lv.

    So i expect the new 6xx and 7xx will start using cortex A77 soon

          PaintNinja, 06 Jan 2021It's got an octacore A76 and A55 combo, it's gonn... moreOcta core but 2x Cortex-A76 and 6x Cortex-A55 with lower clocks.
          But yeah it should be smooth and efficient even on a budget phone which is good news.

            Grats a phone which will barely runs 5G network but nothing else.


              Shadocx, 04 Jan 2021This is just to have 5G, newer Wi-Fi and Bluetooth versions... moreIt's got an octacore A76 and A55 combo, it's gonna be pretty damn good value for money in terms of CPU perf and efficiency (maybe more efficient due to lower clocks, who knows until we see it in action). Easily around an 845, probably better than a 710.

              Not as good as an 8 series of course, but for the price and getting the latest Bluetooth, WiFi and 5G support you gotta admit it's pretty good.

              My point being that you don't need an 8 series 855 or even a 6 series 670 or better for a good experience anymore, even a budget 480 be great for most users (the ones that use their phone for Web browsing, social media, messaging, video watching, light gaming. NOT people who want to do 4K video editing on a phone for some reason or play the latest 3D mobile games on high settings).

                The 460 is already faster than the 630 (140.000 vs.110.000 in Antutu v8), so the 480 will be a massive improvement.

                  You said sd 450 is half of sd 625 read again your first comment.

                  And why put sd 821 flagship soc when we compare low and mid range soc?

                    How about you do a little research before being smart@$$ with tons of reviews of SD625 & SD450 available here?
                    ok, since u r illiterate, I'll help u

                    First, SD625 was introduced in 2016, so I'll use SD821 as the 'base' for the score
                    Next, I'll use Mi max 2 (SD625) & Redmi 5 (SD450)
                    I use Mi 5s plus as the 'base' for this research, since it had the best SD821

                    Why Mi max 2? Because at the time of the review, GSMarena use Geekbench 4 & GFX 3.1 for both benchmark, while Redmi 5 were benchmarked using Geekbench 4.1 (well, SD450 were introduced in late 2017 and OEM introduced the phone using this SoC in 2018, so 2 year gap resulting in different benchmark version).
                    Why Xiaomi? because this company offers devices using ALL the SoC in this research, and have MIUI in 99% of their devices, therefore minimized the margin of errors in score differences because of different UI

                    1) Geekbench 4
                    Mi 5s plus SD821 got 1815 points in single core & 4333 points in multi-core test
                    Mi max 2 SD625 got 799 points (44%) in single core & 2353 points (54%) in multi-core
                    Redmi 5 are benchmarked using Geekbench 4.1 by GSMarena so cannot be used as measurement (at least we know that it will have lower score compared to SD625 since it has lower clockspeed)
                    2) GFX 3.1 manhattan (1080p onscreen)
                    In Mi 5s plus, Adreno 530 got 30 fps
                    In Mi max 2, Adreno 506 got 6.4 fps (21%)
                    Samsung A6 plus (2018) got 5.6 fps (19%) (Redmi 5 got 720p display)

                    So, with this I have prove my point like u asked.
                    Why using notebookcheck? HERE GSMarena reviewed many phones; are u saying they can't be trusted?

                      You know the 400 series is a joke when a twofold increase in performance still isn't enough to reach anything in the Dimensity lineup.

                        Qwerty2021, 05 Jan 2021Do u know what 'hierarchy' means? I'm willi... more
                        do you have proof or just blah blah
                        this is notebookcheck comprehesive comparison between sd 625 and 450

                        most score sd 625 is between 10 to 20 percent faster and in some bechmarks sd 450 is faster. this was expected due to clock advantage which 625 had

                          Very interesting choice from Qualcomm. I am sure that many brands will take advantage of this new technology.

                                      syam7863, 05 Jan 2021The specs are even higher than my SD712 in my Mi9SE. Kryo ... moreWow that’s why I went for the iPhone SE 2020 because of the A13
