The Snapdragon 750G is more powerful than the 765G? Qualcomm’s naming scheme becomes more confusing

Just days after Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 750G SoC, the company’s second 5G-powered modem in the 7-series, benchmark results have been leaked, indicating there’s more to the chipset than what meets the eye.

According to a tipster, the Snapdragon 750G’s Geekbench scores are better than those of the Snapdragon 765G. That was kinda expected, considering the Snapdragon 750G sports the latest Kryo 570 cores, which belongs to the same family as the one used on the Snapdragon 865. So, the CPU cores on the Snapdragon 750G are based on the newer ARM Cortex-A77 cores while the one on the Snapdragon 765G are based on ARM Cortex-A76 cores.

The tipster, who goes by the handle Digital Chat Station, revealed the Snapdragon 750G scored 650 and 1900 on the Geekbench single core and multicore tests. That’s around 7-8% higher than the scores from the Snapdragon 765G, leading to further complications around Qualcomm’s naming scheme for its chipsets. Going by the scores, will the Snapdragon 750G perform better than the Snapdragon 765G? The naming should definitely be stating the opposite, but then again, Geekbench scores aren’t the only benchmark apps to compare performance among SoCs.

The tipster does prod towards the fact that the competition may not be within Snapdragon chips at all. The Snapdragon 750G could have been designed to take on Qualcomm’s fiercest rival in the mid-range segment, MediaTek. The Snapdragon 750G scores are reportedly close to the scores of the MediaTek Dimensity 820, but the latter beats it on multi-core tests. It’s likely then that the Snapdragon 750G won’t be showing up on devices that would be too premium in terms of the price and spec-sheet, but remain competitively mid-range.

Qualcomm has revealed Xiaomi will be the first to bring a smartphone powered by the Snapdragon 750G by the end of this year, and the tipster stated that the scores were generated from a Xiaomi engineering prototype running on the latest chipset. We will find out more about the performance of this chipset, soon as we get our hands on the device.
