Snapdragon 865 is still top, and MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ is better than Kirin 990 5G

Maybe not in vain Huawei is going to switch to single-chip platforms MediaTek

Following the release of the Redmi K30 Ultra on SoC MediaTek Dimensity 1000+, the flagship SoCs have been tested again in various benchmarks to better reveal how the performances of these SoCs differ. It turned out that the Snapdragon 865 is still in its league, but the top-end Kirin 990 5G platform in most tests was inferior to the MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ SoC.

The graphs show that the Snapdragon 865 demonstrates the highest performance of these three SoCs, but in some tests, the MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ gets close enough. But Kirin 990 5G bypassed Dimensity 1000+ only in the multi-threaded Geekbench test, in the rest it lags behind other platforms.

Which of these tests can you conclude? Firstly, Dimensity 1000+ is not much inferior to Snapdragon 865, despite the fact that the difference in the cost of these SoCs is about 40-50% in favor of the MediaTek solution. Secondly, the Kirin 990 5G is no longer able to compete with the top SoC MediaTek, and it is very possible that Huawei’s transition to the Taiwanese company’s platforms will have a positive effect on the performance of Chinese smartphones. At least you shouldn’t expect any failure of this very performance.
