It certainly isn't conclusive to judge through an on-paper comparison, However MTK's dimensity packed with 4X high-performance cores which is based on Cortex A76 clocked at 2.6Ghz whereas Snapdragon has 2X high-performance cores based on Cortex A76 one clocked at 2.4 and 2.2Ghz. When it comes to GPU performance, both chipset Antutu score seems to be promising but dimensity 820 scored huge as compared to SD 765G and looks like MTK's CPU and GPU are powerful than SD765G theoretically. But SD765G seems to be better in terms of Camera ISP and Connectivity, Both chipsets are fabricated on the 7nm process. Dimensity 820 & SD 765G does bring lots of things to the table, However, it will be interesting to see how power consumption is good on both chipset especially dimensity 820. Both the chipsets are good, What's your opinion about both the chipsets? Do let me know in the comments.
