Vonikhsat S Metra, 20 May 2022If being 40% slower in ST performance is "on par"... moreST performance is not 40% lower. learn some math.

      Anonymous, 20 May 2022SoC that has only new cores (710 and 510) with better gpu t... moreWhybi consider this more an 870

      Because this thing is barely any better than the snap 860

      And this 7 gen 1 is running on Samsung 4nm

      And these new cores are not the upgrade they try to advertise they aren't as efficient


      Overall this thing is more an 870 than anything else

        DrakeX, 20 May 2022Does this mean that Qualcomm and Apple are finally on par?If being 40% slower in ST performance is "on par", then yes.

        Qualcomm will come really close only in 2023 when they finally release SoCs based on Nuvia designs.

              How about you test sustained performance and thermal throttling? Burnout Benchmark is a good app for that.

                I saw some ROG Phone 6 schematics "leaked" online before. this reference phone from Asus looks a LOT like that leaked schematics. here's me hoping that this means the ROG Phone 6 is just on the horizon along with the Zenfone 9

                  DrakeX, 20 May 2022Does this mean that Qualcomm and Apple are finally on par?Yes, finally they almost beat A13. However, apps are customize better for A chip.

                    Ravuh, 20 May 2022Yeah, but your phones aren't mediatek. Right?thats the truth. hype up mediatek and in the end buy snapdragon. this is how it works.

                          In theory, the 7gen1 should be a little bit more efficient (being a newer arch and using a process with EUV), but according to this video, it's not.

                            SD 7 gen 1 have 2 cluster CPU Architecture with different ARM cortex core than 870.
                            its also manufactured in 4nm fabs, while the 870 use 7nm fabs. lol

                              So they leave the power consumption the same and increased performance.
                              That just means it will still throttle...

                                Just keep the frequency increase to yourself and extract even more efficiency. Those gains would be even higher at the same frequency.

It still has the top tier performance and comparing to other chipsets from other manufactures (Samsung, Mediatek) it still has some benefits that makes it the best one, for e.g 8K video support (Mediatek lacks this) or an actually good ISP.

So your assumption that Dimensity 9000 is better than SD 8 Gen 1+ is just that - ASSUMPTION. We need to wait for review of at least 1 phone each with SD 8 Gen 1+ Vs Dimensity 9000, to get an idea of which is the best Android SoC available.

                                        WHO needs 8K HDR Video ? It shows nothing what 4k isnt already showing. U have to crop in the picture to see a difference.

                                        When will we finally get REAL continous 1000FPS 720P Recording ? All Phones are doing fake 480fps with Interpolated Frames at the Moment which looks very bad.
