Xiaomi's Snapdragon 8 Gen 3-Powered Xiaomi 14 Takes Top Spot on AnTuTu Benchmarks


In the ever-evolving world of smartphone technology, the race for the most powerful and efficient chipsets remains a focal point. Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 had reigned supreme on the AnTuTu benchmark leaderboards for the better part of the year. However, a new contender has emerged in October, with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 taking the top spot. Xiaomi's impressive Xiaomi 14, featuring a 16 GB/512 GB configuration, leads the charge with a remarkable score of 1,997,427 points.

Hot on the heels of the Xiaomi 14 is the Xiaomi 14 Pro, which secures an impressive 1,985,014 points. Notably, these scores represent a considerable gap when compared to older smartphones that graced the market before the release of Qualcomm's latest flagship SoC. The Xiaomi 14 series, as indicated by these performance metrics, showcases a significant 20% performance increase over the OnePlus Ace 2 Pro, which held the highest score among smartphones utilizing the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in October.

It's worth noting that these rankings represent an average score from all benchmark runs completed in October, hinting that the Xiaomi 14 series is well-positioned to break the coveted 2 million points barrier, as advertised, in the near future.

While Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip claims the top spot, the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 continues to exhibit its prowess in the mid-range category. The Realme GT Neo5 SE and the Redmi Note 12 Turbo stand as testament to the mid-range dominance of this chipset, both securing approximately 1,154,000 points each. This should come as no surprise, as the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 boasts remarkable specifications closely resembling a flagship chip from the previous year. With features such as the ARM Cortex-X2 performance core, clocked at up to 2.91 GHz, and a trio of Cortex-A710 cores at 2.49 GHz, it's clear that this mid-range contender means business.

Completing the mid-range top 10 are smartphones powered by MediaTek's Dimensity 8200 and Dimensity 8100 chips. Although not quite matching the speed of Qualcomm's top mid-range SoC, the MediaTek options are likely to be more budget-friendly, reflecting their widespread popularity within this price range.

The battle for supremacy in the smartphone chipset arena continues, with manufacturers and chipmakers pushing the boundaries of performance and innovation. As the Xiaomi 14 claims the top position on AnTuTu's benchmark charts, it's evident that Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is a force to be reckoned with, setting a new performance benchmark for flagship devices.
