If you pay attention to the recent mid-range machine market, I believe you will be shocked by the large number of choices. Under the extreme involution, mainstream brands almost have more than one choice in the 2K file, and in different models, the choice of SoC is also different. In order to help everyone better choose a mobile phone according to their performance needs, we here For the first time, I found four mainstream options for 2K files – Dimensity 8200, Dimensity 9000, second-generation Snapdragon 7+, and Snapdragon 8+. Let’s see how everyone performs through actual measurements.
1 What is the difference between the four chips?
To understand the difference in performance between the four chips, we first need to know the difference in the underlying architecture of the four chips. For the CPU part, the three chips are all of the Arm public version architecture and adopt an 8-core design, but the specific models and parameters are different.
The Dimensity 8200 adopts TSMC’s 4nm process technology, the architecture is 1+3+4 design, the performance core is Cortex A78 (*4), the highest frequency is 3.1GHz, plus 4 energy efficiency core A55, the main frequency is 2.0GHz. Compared with the Dimensity 8100, the Dimensity 8200 has been upgraded in technology, the CPU frequency has been increased, and it also integrates Mali-G610 GPU and APU 580.
Dimensity 9000 adopts TSMC’s 4nm process, adopts “1+3+4 three-cluster architecture, super large core is 1×Arm Cortex-X2, frequency 3.05GHz; large core is 3×Arm Cortex-A710, frequency 2.85GHz; energy efficiency The core is 4×Arm Cortex-A510, the frequency is 1.8GHz, and it also integrates Mali-G710 ten-core GPU and APU 590.
The Snapdragon 8+ chip processor is built with TSMC’s 4nm process, and adopts the 1+3+4 three-cluster flagship ARM V9 architecture, including: 1 3.2GHz CortexX2 super performance core, 3 2.75GHz Cortex A710 performance cores and 4 2.0 GHz Cortex A510 energy efficient core. Equipped with Adreno 730 GPU
The second-generation Snapdragon 7+ mobile platform adopts Kryo CPU, 1+3+4 architecture, including 1 super core, 3 performance cores and 4 efficiency cores. Among them, the main frequency of the super core is as high as 2.91GHz. In terms of GPU, the overall performance of the Adreno GPU used in the second-generation Snapdragon 7+ mobile platform is twice that of the previous generation 7-series platform.
2 From running points to fever, the measured performance gap is geometric
In order to actually test the performance of the four chips, we chose the Redmi K60 equipped with Snapdragon 8+, the Realme GT Neo5 SE equipped with Snapdragon 7+ Gen2, the price-performance ratio using Dimensity 9000 represents OnePlus Ace2V and the Dimensity 8200 The Redmi Note 12T Pro.
Before the actual measurement, we first need to unify the test environment. For Redmi K60 and Redmi Note 12T Pro, we select the performance mode in the battery settings, and at the same time select the performance mode in the Game Turbo; while on the GT Neo5 SE, we turn on the GT mode; OnePlus Ace 2V is also selected in the battery settings performance mode. At the same time, set the screen brightness to 50%, turn off Bluetooth and sound, connect to the same Wi-Fi, and test at a room temperature of 25 degrees Celsius.
The first is the running score part. Although the running score cannot summarize all usage scenarios, as the most intuitive and quantitative test method, the results still have a high reference value. In this part, we use AnTuTu, 3D Mark and GeekBench to test, the results are as follows:
In AnTuTu V10, the score of Redmi K60 equipped with Snapdragon 8+ is 1321139 points; the score of Realme GT Neo5 SE equipped with Snapdragon 7+ Gen2 is 1110548 points; the score of OnePlus Ace 2V equipped with Dimensity 9000 is 1112453 points; The score of Redmi Note 12T Pro equipped with Dimensity 8200 is 884046 points.
In GeekBench 6, the Redmi K60 equipped with Snapdragon 8+ has a single-core score of 1741 points and a multi-core score of 4372 points; the realme GT Neo5 SE equipped with Snapdragon 7+ Gen2 has a single-core score of 1658 points and a multi-core score of 4311 points; OnePlus Ace 2V equipped with Dimensity 9000 has a single-core score of 1583 points and a multi-core score of 4398 points; Redmi Note 12T Pro equipped with Dimensity 8200 has a single-core score of 1240 points and a multi-core score of 3999 points.
In 3D Mark Wild Life Extreme, the score of Redmi K60 equipped with Snapdragon 8+ is 2720 points; the score of Realme GT Neo5 SE equipped with Snapdragon 7+ Gen2 is 1953 points; the score of OnePlus Ace 2V equipped with Dimensity 9000 is 2342 points ; The score of Redmi Note 12T Pro equipped with Dimensity 8200 is 1700 points.
game frame rate
With the continuous improvement of processor performance, the current mobile games are also constantly evolving, the picture is more beautiful, and the frame rate has also increased from the initial 30 frames to the current 120 frames, followed by higher and higher performance requirements . Under such circumstances, whether the processor can provide enough performance to allow users to obtain a good gaming experience has become a concern. In order to simulate the extreme scene, we directly chose the real benchmark software “Honkai: Interstellar Railway”, and tested it at 60 frames + extremely high quality. The frame rate is as follows:
It can be seen that the Redmi K60 with Snapdragon 8+ is naturally the best in terms of frame rate performance, and it is fairly stable in the first 5 minutes, but after 5 minutes, the frame rate curve is like a roller coaster, which is really not good-looking. The final average frame rate was 48.9fps.
Realme GT Neo5 SE equipped with the second-generation Snapdragon 7+ is second only to Redmi K60 in terms of frame rate performance. Although the frame rate fluctuates throughout the process, it is generally maintained in the range of 40-60, and the gaming experience is fairly stable. The final average frame rate was 46fps.
The OnePlus Ace 2V equipped with Dimensity 9000 has a bit outrageous frame rate performance. The whole process jumps horizontally between 30 and 60. It is reflected in the game that you can clearly feel that the running is sometimes smooth and sometimes stuttering. The final average frame rate is 36.7fps.
The Redmi Note 12T Pro equipped with Dimensity 8200 is completely flat in frame rate performance, fluctuating between 30-50 most of the time, completely flat after the 12th minute, running at 30 frames, and the final average frame rate The rate is 30.2fps.
Just having strong performance is not enough. If the heating condition is not ideal, it will have a big impact on the life of the phone itself and the user experience. In order to detect the heating of the four mobile phones, after using the same settings for half an hour to test “Honkai: Interstellar Railway”, I used a temperature measuring gun to test the body temperature of the four mobile phones. The results are as follows:
Redmi K60 temperature performance
Realme GT Neo5 SE temperature performance
OnePlus Ace 2V temperature performance
Redmi Note 12T Pro temperature performance
It can be seen that the average body temperature of the Redmi K60 is 44.3 degrees Celsius, and the highest body temperature is 51.1 degrees Celsius; the average body temperature of the Realme GT Neo5 SE is 40.0 degrees Celsius, and the highest body temperature is 45.8 degrees Celsius; OnePlus Ace 2V The average temperature of the fuselage is 44.5 degrees Celsius, and the maximum temperature of the fuselage is 53.5 degrees Celsius; the average temperature of the Redmi Note 12T Pro is 43.1 degrees Celsius, and the maximum temperature of the fuselage is 51.3 degrees Celsius.
From the overall performance point of view, the comprehensive advantages of the high-end Snapdragon 8+ are self-evident, and the performance of the relatively low-end Dimensity 8200 is naturally one level lower than the other three. As for the Dimensity 9000 and the second-generation Snapdragon 7+, although they are very close in performance, the power consumption of the Dimensity 9000 is relatively higher, requiring manufacturers to work harder on heat dissipation.
