Snapdragon 7 Gen 1: Alleged CPU benchmark numbers offer disappointment in spades

The Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 is expected to be Qualcomm's answer to the supremely impressive MediaTek Dimensity 8100 and while one would expect the Qualcomm chipset to fall a bit short, early alleged benchmarks posit it as a total flop.

The Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 is tipped to launch shortly as Qualcomm's apex non-premium chipset for the year. OPPO's upcoming mid-range phone, the Reno8, is expected to be equipped with the chipset and a new leak has now revealed some rather disappointing Geekbench performance numbers for the duo. 

The Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 appears to record a single-core score of 712 and a multi-core score of 2385. Those are, well, shambolic. For some perspective, the chipset the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 is expected to rival—the Snapdragon 870—scores 993 and 3306 respectively, a whole tier above the Snapdragon 7 Gen appears to deliver. In fact, these leaked numbers fall short of the Snapdragon 778G—780 and 2864 in the single-core and multi-core tests respectively—as well.

These Geekbench scores look a lot lower than what one would expect from the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1, which makes it likely that the numbers are either dubious or, at least, a bad representation of the chipset's actual capabilities. That said, though, the listed core clock speeds match up to provided numbers from previous reports.
