The Dimensity 700 is Still pretty bad considering its a mid range chip and it's almost no less better than a low end ie. Snapdragon 480.

MediaTek is improving a lot and it's a fact, so personally, I wouldn't mind if a smartphone uses MTK's SoC especially the Dimensity series. The P-series is kinda old and while the G-series is newer, both of them are generally entry-level SoC, except for G90 and above which performance is still acceptable (at least for me) as a mid-range SoC.

Why the reviewers always stay on sd's side? When sd's chip show nothing better than mediatek's one still they says "Developers optimize games for Snapdragon processors more often than for Dimensity, Better instruction set architecture" bla bla. This is nonsense. SD fanboys keep sd660 ahead of even dimensity 1200 (!) this is ridiculous.

Bruh no, I don't see anyone say 660 better the 1200, but anyway they both has pro and cons 700 has better cpu 480 has better gpu 700 has better camera 480 is efficient 700 has better internet connectivity 480 has wifi 6 But there is something that make 480 is better the efficiency,it 3 times more efficient then 700 Sure 700 is more cheaper but it only little bit cheaper

it's a fact games are optimized for adreno gpu, Qualcomm provide better drivers and give necessary api and files to developer so they can do their things. mali Gpu (mediatek/exynos/kirin) don't have good drivers and always use more power to use same task compare to adreno. while sd 660/665/662 won't be able to beat sd1200 but definitely its better than helio G80 its close competitor. same to sd 480 it perform better than dimensity 700 in games even though dimensity is slightly more powerful.

Both chips are good. Maybe it is user choice whether they like snapdragon or mediatek.

It a modified version, that why it can give near the cpu performance as dimensity yet having lower frequency

Mediatek shows that they are not a low-end brand anymore. Dimensity 700 is good, but 480 also no less good. Both chips are very good.

I think it's Antutu v9 of SD 480, while dimensity 700 using antutu v8, so of course SD 480 win in antutu score
