CPU

The CPU of the Mediatek Dimensity 920 is clocked at 2.5 GHz and uses the newest Cortex A78 cores, while the Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 is only clocked at 2.0 GHz and uses obsolete Cortex A77 cores. Because of this, the Dimensity 920 offers a higher performance improvement and is hence a better alternative than the Snapdragon 690.

GPU

The MediaTek Dimensity 920 has a Mali-G68 MC4 GPU based on 5nm technology, whereas the Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 has an Adreno 619L based on 8nm lithography. To be honest, Mali-G68 MC4 is a far superior GPU to Adreno 619L.

Memory

The memory frequency of the Mediatek Dimensity 920 is 3200 MHz, while the memory frequency of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 is 1866 MHz. Furthermore, the memory type of the Dimensity 920 is LPDDR5, whereas the memory type of the Snapdragon 690 is LPDDR54x, implying that the Dimensity 920 has superior memory speed and energy efficiency than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 690.

Energy efficiency and battery life

As the facts are seen by the technical specifications of both the SoCs, the Dimensity 920 is built on 6nm process technology while on other hand, Snapdragon 690 is built on 8nm technology. This concludes that Dimensity 920 is better than Snapdragon 690 as the small size semiconductor indicates the more no. of transistors embedded in SOC (System On Chip) which is not only energy efficient but also significantly enhances the performance of the chipset.

Q n A

Is Snapdragon 690 A good processor?

The Snapdragon 690’s performance in our benchmarks is comparable to mid-range SoCs like the Snapdragon 765 or the Dimensity 800U, thanks to the two large A77 cores. The Snapdragon 690 is manufactured in Samsung’s 8nm LPP (Low Power Plus) technology which means it’s a decent performer for entry-level and some starting mid-range smartphones.

Who makes Mali GPU?

Arm Holdings produced Mali Series of graphic processing units (GPU) which are used by various chip maker companies like Mediatek, Samsung, Asus, etc.

Does Apple use Mali GPU?

Apple doesn’t use Mali GPUs for its SoC lineup as they produce their own Apple integrated GPUs which are specially optimized for IOS and MAC chipsets like Apple A series (A15, A14, A13, etc).
