Asus ROG Phone 6D and its MediaTek Dimensity 9000 Plus dominates Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 phones in latest AnTuTu rankings
The MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ was launched months ago as a direct response to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8+ Gen. While the Qualcomm chipset sees bigger gains relative to the SoC it refreshes, the Dimensity 9000 Plus still holds its own—at least if AnTuTu's latest rankings are anything to go by.
As published by the Chinese benchmark yesterday, the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 Plus is the most powerful chipset in the Android space tested in September. The chipset, housed within Asus's latest gaming phone, the ROG Phone 6D, edges Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 phones like the OnePlus Ace Pro, Lenovo Legion Y70, and iQOO 10 Pro. Interestingly, the ROG Phone 6 and ROG Phone 6 Pro with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 don't appear to be listed for September.
The Asus ROG Phone 6D records a CPU score of 286,017; the closest device in the CPU test being Nubia's RedMagic 7S Pro with a score of 264,770. The ROG Phone 6D and the Dimensity 9000 Plus get beaten soundly by just about every Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 phone in the GPU test, however. For what it's worth, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1-powered ROG Phone 6 loses in the CPU test like its peers, with its score of 261,483 falling short of the 6D's. The MediaTek Dimensity 9000 Plus is, by all metrics, the king of CPU performance. As long as you ignore Apple's new A16 Bionic, anyway.
