I think Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is more power efficient than the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 Plus.

Acoveh 19 September 2022 20:05
It isn't, the newest tests show that the ROG 6D with the Dimensity 9000 Plus lasts 5 hours in Genshin while the Gen 1+ only lasts 3 hours, the battery consumption comparison is not true in this sheet, in COD the Dimensity 9000 Plus lasts 9-10 hours while the Gen 1+ lasts 6 hours.

Acoveh, Well 9000+ is indeed good but you are comparing 8+gen1 with Rog, it has the best battery. The 8+gen1 version lasts the same or longer than the Rog phone 6 series!

Terry 08 November 2022 00:53
Accept the truth, Rog is a gaming phone efficiency would be lesser even for 8+ gen1 with all those extra features and cooling mechanisms but the thing is even with all those d9000+ can go even more efficient than 8+gen1.

We all know that Snapdragon processors are built for games and provides you with high and smooth fps more than any other processor, Which means the best processor of GAMERS!

Tests show an entirely different result, Gen 1+ lasts 3 hours in Genshin while the Dimensity 9000 Plus lasts 5 hours, same with COD, Gen 1+ has 6 hours, Dimensity 9000 Plus lasts 9-10 hours.

Acoveh, Bruh stop it already, both are good and 8+gen1 is not that behind in power efficiency, in fact it's more in the Rog 6pro with 8+gen1. I respect both! Stop fanboying!

I wish Mediatek had increased the GPU core of Maki G710 to at least 12 if not 14 (which is the maximum cores supported, I guess). Besides the CPU may be arranged as 1 x cortex X2 @ 3.2 GHz + 3 x cortex a710 @ 2.95 GHz + 4 x cortex a510 @ 2.25 GHz and of course, Maki G710 MP12 (@ 900 Mhz plus). This way, I think the Geekbench score of dimensity 9000 plus will be around 1400+ (single core) and 4400-4500 (multi-core), which will be competitive even with Apple A15 SoC, let alone the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC.

Lol d9000+ score same as 8 plus gen 1. Not to mention it's GPU is weaker than 8 plus gen 1

Dimensity 9000 (k 50 pro performance mode) can easily achieve a multi-core score of 4600 and a single of 1300 and I think 9000+ might go slightly above that

Imagine how much smarter MediaTek is working than before, this chipset has all the power of only 4 W and this is great, and I am sure that MediaTek will be two or three steps higher than Qualcomm in 2 or 3 years. The dimensity series came and blew up the market, now dimensity 9000, which was really stronger than Snapdragon 8 generation 1, its Plus version has also been released, think for yourself, how powerful it is 🙂 And dimensity 9000 plus in the benchmarks have better performance and have powerful gpu and it is better for game than snapdragon.

What? Where do u get that? Andreno 730 is superior to GPU of d9000+. Of course, d9000+ is more efficient but snapdragon 8 plus gen 1 has more superior GPU

PeeCee 17 July 2022 17:50
Nabil, Yes, though the performance of the GPU of dimensity 9000 plus has been upgraded a little, SD 8+ Gen 1 GPU (Adreno 730) might still be superior. However, the Mali G710 MP10 in D 9000+ is powerful enough to handle everything it's thrown at, too and the difference in performance between the two GPUs is almost negligible, I think. Therefore, it all comes down to power efficiency and sustained performance which really matters in this case.

PeeCee, I know MediaTek doing well. But y'all over hyping it. I saw a test where mi 12s ultra ( 8 plus gen 1) had more stable frames than iPhone 13 pro max. Of course with some thermals. There was a big gap between 8 gen 1 and d9000. But In terms of CPU performance 8+ gen 1 doing the same as d9000+. I don't think d9000+ is much more efficient than 8+ gen 1.

Nig 08 November 2022 00:59
Nabil, Actually, 9000+ is more efficient than 8+gen1. Check the results of rog6 vs rog6D Dimensity 9000+ can give more backup.

sheesh 24 January 2023 10:48
Nig, full-fledged sd 8+ gen 1 is more efficient than a full-fledged dimensity 9000+ though. It all just comes down to software implementation or if the manufacturer fine-tuned these chipsets this is the source you can find some of the golden reviewer's in-depth tests of chipsets on his Twitter acc or if you really want more popular and a bit more reliable tests, you can watch geekerwan's Chinese channel on his yt acc. This is just an alternative recommendation cuz both reviewers were reliable

Mr. Nobody, Now it's not that thing anymore Instead Games are being equally /more optimized for MediaTek (Dimensity) as well thanks to its market share.

Harry 22 July 2022 04:55
Quack, Lol no. The GPU of 8 plus gen 1 is way superior to d9000+. Also after a big improvement in power consumption from gen 1 to plus version. There is so Lil amount of gap in Cpu performance. Now the Cpu performance is almost the same for both of the chipsets. But there is a huge gap in GPU. Andreno 730 mops d9000+ GPU any day

Harry, Speaking of GPU power Did you know that in Android games Games use more CPU power over GPU power Even the 870 chipset doesn't use 100% of its GPU power while its CPU power goes up to 95%+ on most games like pubgm, Genshin, etc. Now this way powerful GPU A730 is not gonna be utilized up to the fullest as most Android games utilize CPU power over GPU (Source: geekerwan yt, golden reviewer yt)

Quack 14 August 2022 04:07
Harry, Also speaking of GPU power D9000 GPU was the same as A730 (1% gap) Here ( Note 730(8gen1) and 730(8+gen1) give. Identical performance but with efficiency gap) As per some leaks 9000+ GPU has increased the core while 8+gen1 has increased the frequency So I don't think there will be a big gap(4-5%) So, sorry bro 730 isn't moping d9000+ GPU currently Maybe 740 or above will do it Source: golden reviewer
