Hate to break it to u all but the 778g/778g+ fabbed by tsmc will come out on top because Samsungs 4nm node isn't great its about equal to tsmc 5nm or 6nm and because of all the heat Samsung fabbed chips generate the sustainable performance of tsmc's node will win as it always does. Samsung may have been first to 3nm but it's not the better nor does it have tsmc's track record. Honestly, Samsung should collaborate with tsmc to find out what it's doing so wrong with its nodes because other than memory and baseband chips customers are running away for more than one reason. 1 heat 2 crap yields 3 density 4 customer satisfaction 5 unsustainable performance.

Or Samsung can just poach TSMC engineers and steal TSMC's Intellectual property and designs like it has been doing till now.

You can't trust any Qualcomm new chip anymore they need to get to the line again 👍

Correction you can't trust any new Samsung fabbed chip. In fact, if tsmc fabbed the baseband x60 we would get better efficiency and sustainable internet connection.

The benchmark of 7 gen 1 is preliminary testing, hope people don't jump to conclusions instantly, clock speed of cpus is 98% the same.

Judging from the new CPU core and GPU it uses, 7 Gen 1 should perform better than the 778G.
