The Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 is a crazy powerful SOC by Qualcomm & while Qualcomm calls it the most powerful Snapdragon 7 series SOC, it would not be wrong to call it one of the most powerful SOCs among all the Qualcomm chipsets. This chip destroys the likes of Snapdragon 888, 888+, Dimensity 8200, and other mid-range chipsets & comes close to the performance of Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1.
The Redmi Note 12 Turbo will be one of the first phones powered by the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 1, launching in China on March 28. Another phone launching soon with this SOC is the Realme GT Neo 5 SE. Today, the AnTuTu benchmark result of this phone was shared by Digital Chat Station on Weibo, showing impressive numbers.
The phone has the model number RMX3700 & the variant benchmarked on AnTuTu has 16GB RAM paired with 1TB storage. On AnTuTu, the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2-powered Realme GT Neo 5 SE scores over 1 Million points, comparable to the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. This is an exceptionally high score for a mid-range Snapdragon 7 series SOC.
The Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 has an octa-core CPU with a 1 + 3 + 4 arrangement, and the prime Cortex X2 core is clocked at 2.91GHz. There are three Cortex-A710 cores clocked at 2.49GHz & four Cortex-A510 cores clocked at 1.8GHz. The chip is built on the TSMC’s 4nm process & has the Adreno 725 GPU. Compared to the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1, the 7+ Gen 2 offers a 50% better CPU performance, twice the GPU performance, and 13% better efficiency.
So while this is a Snapdragon 7 series SOC, the performance is similar to some of the most powerful Snapdragon 8 series chipsets. The chip supports LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage.
Realme GT Neo 5 SE is launching first in the Chinese market, but the launch date has not been revealed.
