            It'll be ironic to see the upper-midrange chipset have better thermal efficiency than its flagship counterpart.

                    gpu wise 778g performance is on par with 860 so this should be on par with 865/870 too

                    anyway, buying an old 865 and overclock it to 888 level is possible with unlock boot loader and konabess software but with good cooling system, mi10 and bs3 came to mind so if this 7 gen 1 fall short below 865 it will be quite a disaster

                      Anonymous, 21 May 20227 gen 1 is fabbed by Samsung.hopefully they do the right things, not to make worse chip like 888 or 8gen1

                            This is NOT an upgrade from 778g, in fact it's a downgrade especially when it comes to efficiently and heat, thanks to Samsung. It's not worth overheating and battery drain just for some pointless benchmark scores when user doesn't notice the performance difference in day to day use.

                              Due to Samsung's process this one will be less efficient than 778g running on 6nm. This is nothing but a successor of infamous 780g made by Samsung. Samsung will make non-flagship chips for Qualcomm and TSMC the flagship, just swapping out the previous role! What does it bring for consumers buying non-flagships other than downgrade in efficiency?

                                  I am more interested in this chip, because it is more affordable than 8 series!

                                    MiSmartFridge, 20 May 20222.4Ghz 78 would just be another 780G, so of course its 710Isn't the 870 just another 865 by that logic? How can you say they won't do that again?

                                        Anonymous, 20 May 2022Such a big article and no mention of the CPU cores usedTo be fair, it's more of how Qualcomm rolls trying to hide it. Just pay for it because we say it's good.
