Snapdragon 7+ Gen 3 Boasts Higher AnTuTu Scores than Flagship 8 Gen 2, Targets Dimensity 8000 Series

Qualcomm’s upcoming line of next-to-flagship SoCs will be fabricated on a newer architecture, similar to that of the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. This, in turn is expected to lead to better performance numbers and efficiency scores.

The chip, with the model number SM7675, hasn’t officially been labeled as the 7+ Gen 3, but it’s highly likely that Qualcomm will continue the same naming convention as its previous generations. There are rumors suggesting that the performance uplift will be substantial enough for the 7+ Gen 3 to potentially outperform last year’s flagship SoC, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.

This chipset, featured in devices such as the Samsung S23 Ultra, Xiaomi 13 Ultra, OPPO Find X6 Pro, and ROG Phone 7 Pro, will fall behind this year’s mid-range phones, which will be equipped with the 7+ Gen 3 (SM7675). It is reported that at least five models are confirmed to feature this chipset.

Qualcomm’s next-gen 7 Series will directly compete with the Dimensity 8000 series, a matchup that was previously easily predictable and one-sided. In earlier reports, although not confirmed, it has been stated that the 7+ Gen 3 will come with almost north of 1.6 million points on AnTuTu. For reference, these scores are just marginally better than the Dimensity 8300 (1.54 million) and Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 (1.54 million).

The 7 Gen 3 registers a somewhat underwhelming score of 867K points. However, the huge spike, nearly doubling the scores, can be attributed to Qualcomm’s plans of incorporating newer ARM cores in the chipset, specifically the model number SM7675. This upgrade involves a shift in the big core from Cortex-X3 to Cortex-X4, an improvement in the mid-cores from A710 to A720, and a transition in the efficiency cores to Cortex A520.

The GPU remains consistent with the one featured in the 8 Gen 2, namely the Adreno 740, an upgrade from the Adreno 720 found in the 7 Gen 3. Unfortunately, the clock speeds for all the cores and the GPU are currently undisclosed. This is all we know for now, but rest assured that we will keep you updated as new information becomes available.
