Hardware & Performance

The Samsung’s Exynos 9611 comes with an octa-core setup with four Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.3 GHz and four Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.7 GHz whereas Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 712 comes with their customized versions of Cortex-A75 and Cortex-A55 cores here. There are eight cores, two Kryo 360 Gold(Cortex-A75) cores clocked at 2.3 GHz and six Kryo 360 Silver(Cortex-A55) cores clocked at 1.7 GHz. On the other hand, MediaTek’s Helio G90T comes with an octa-core setup with two Cortex-A76 cores clocked at 2.05 GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.0 GHz. The six A55 cores are efficiency cores while the two A76 cores are performance cores.

Furthermore, the Exynos 9611 has the Mali-G72 MP3 built on the 2nd generation of Bifrost architecture to boost up the graphics-intensive tasks. The Snapdragon has the latest Adreno 616 and the Helio G90T has the Arm Mali-G76 3EEMC4 which along with Mediatek’s hyper engine gaming technology claims to provide the best gaming experience. Here overall though, the Adreno performs better in real-life experience and also proves to be very power efficient.

The fabrication on the Exynos 9611 processor is of 10nm, the Snapdragon 712 also has a 10nm manufacturing, but the helio G90T still has a 12 nm fabrication. This on paper makes the Helio G90T less power efficient than the other two competitors. All three of them provide support for LPDDR4X RAM, along with support for UFS 2.1 storage unit for faster read and write speeds.

Camera and Display

Exynos 9611 processor supports dual camera setup with a 16MP + 16MP or a single 64MP camera support while the Snapdragon 712 supports a 192MP single camera or a dual 16MP +16MP setup, which gives the Snapdragon 712 an advantage over the Exynos 9611 in terms of better single-camera setup. Now for the Helio G90T, we get single camera support of 64MP and dual-camera support of 24MP + 16MP lenses. All of them are capable of shooting videos at 4K but the Exynos 9611 can record slow-motion videos at 480 fps.

In the display department, the Snapdragon has edge over the other two as it supports up to a resolution of 1440 x 3360 QHD+ pixels. While with both the Exynos 9611 and Helio G90T, the maximum support is limited to a resolution of FHD+. The Exynos 9611 supports up to 1600 x 2560 pixels while the G90T supports up to 2520 x 1080 pixels.

Benchmark Scores

For Geekbench, the Snapdragon 712 scores a single-core score of 1914 points and a multi-core score of 6037 points. Then we have the Exynos 9611 achieving a single-core score of 1,690 points and a multi-core score of 5,540 points. Finally, we have the Helio G90T scoring 2514 points in single-core testing and 7447 points in multi-core testing. Here the Exynos 9611 stands at last with the G90T leading the race. The Snapdragon 712 sits somewhere between the Helio G90T and the Exynos 9611.

Now for Antutu, we have the Snapdragon 712 scoring 1,79,904 points, whereas the Helio G90T and Exynos 9611 manages a score of 2,22,282 points and 1,55,300 points respectively. Here the Helio G90T has a clear advantage over the Snapdragon 712. In Antutu also, G90T is the clear winner.

Which One is Better Processor?

In terms of power, the Helio G90T blows the other two off. It may be less efficient than the other two, but if gaming is your priority on a budget, then the Redmi Note 8 Pro is the device for you. Now for the Exynos 9611 on Galaxy M30s is probably one of the best chips from Samsung for their mid-range devices with fewer lags for gamers with enhanced graphics processing performance. It can’t get ahead of the G90T on benchmark tests, but the other specifications suggest that it is a very powerful and capable chip. Now the Snapdragon 712 on Realme 5 Pro seems like a slacker when compared to the other two in terms of benchmark scores, but the optimizations thrown in from Qualcomm might just prove this as a better chip than the other two in real-life usage. Here’s the comparison between Galaxy M30s, Realme 5 Pro and Redmi Note 8 Pro here to decide which one is the best device for you. You can also wait for upcoming Redmi Note 8T which will be powered by Snapdragon 730G SoC – Qualcomm’s mid-range gaming processor with clock speed at upto 2.2 GHz and better GPU (Adreno 618) compared to the Helio G90T SoC.

    Configuration doesn’t so matter. Actual real-life usage and performance matter. I am using very old processor which is Snapdragon 430 clocked at 1.4 ghz octa core with 28 nm technology, but this chipset runs asphalt 9 smoothly in default settings and also runs mortal Kombat x , call of duty mobile and many others graphics intensive games. Never found any trouble. That means just good configuration not matter , you also need best optimise software with your chipset and this not possible with custom skins like Color os 6 or miui 10 .
    My phone is lenovo k6 power 4000 mah battery using last 2 years and still giving me SOT 7+ hrs.

  2. The comparison does not make sense. You could have at least compared the gaming chipsets from these brands.

  3. The performance and the configuration of Helio G90T seem to be very impressive and with the launch of RN 8 Pro, it is going to get a trademark response from the users.
