Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 vs Dimensity 9000: More Redmi K50 Pro CPU and GPU benchmark numbers are in
Much has been said about how the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 betters the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1—at least in the CPU department. Overall, though, it appears that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 still tops AnTuTu's performance charts in China, despite stellar performances from the Dimensity 9000-powered Redmi K50 Pro and OPPO Find X5 Pro.
On AnTuTu's CPU test, the Redmi K50 Pro scores 247,783. That's a conservative showing too, as the OPPO Find X5 Pro scores 257,690. In contrast, the highest-scoring Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 device on the test is the Nubia RedMagic 7 Pro with a score of 242,965—no doubt due to its active cooling. Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 phones appear to score in the range of 220,000 on average. Those figures show the Dimensity 9000-powered phones with a CPU advantage of about 12%.
As with other tests, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 takes the lead in the GPU department. Qualcomm's Adreno 730 continues its role as the best GPU on the Android market with ARM's Mali-G710 MC10 on the Dimensity 9000 failing to match up. The Redmi K50 Pro scores 389,087 on AnTuTu's GPU test. In contrast, the Nubia RedMagic 7 Pro scores 444,786. On average, though, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 phones seem to score in the region of 420,000, which translates into a 10% advantage over the Dimensity 9000.
Of course, these numbers only provide information on raw performance. The Dimensity 9000 wins in CPU performance, while the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 leads in GPU. It's a different ballgame when power consumption is considered, though, as the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 looks to be more efficient across the board.
