Realme has been on a launch spree this 12 months, and it’s newest comes within the type of the Realme X7 Max. The brand new handset is a part of the corporate’s mid-range X7 collection and joins the Realme X7 (overview) and X7 Professional (overview) smartphones which have the brand new MediaTek Dimensity chipsets powering them. The Realme X7 Max debuts with the Taiwanese semiconductor big’s new Dimensity 1200 chipset. This SoC might be thought-about MediaTek’s flagship chipset and reveals how severe the corporate is to compete with Samsung and Qualcomm on the highest ranges of cellular computing. On this efficiency comparability, let’s pit the Realme X7 Max towards its closest rivals, that are the IQOO 7 (overview) and Mi 11X (overview), each powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chipset.
The Dimensity 1200 5G chipset has been made utilizing a 6nm fabrication course of and has eight cores. There may be one Cortex A78 Extremely core clocked at 3.0GHz and three supporting efficiency Cortex A78s clocked at 2.6GHz. The effectivity cores are your commonplace Cortex A55 cores clocked at 2GHz. As for the graphics, they’re dealt with by the Mali-G77 MC9. As compared, the Snapdragon 870 has one Cortex A77 clocked at 3.2GHz paired with three others which have 2.42GHz clock pace. The effectivity Cortex A55 cores spin at 1.8GHz and the graphics are dealt with by the Adreno 650 GPU.
One solution to get an concept in regards to the processing capabilities of a smartphone is to run it via a bunch of artificial benchmarks. The most well-liked ones on the Play Retailer are Geekbench 5, Antutu V9, 3DMark, and GFXBench. Let’s see how the three smartphones stack up.
On Geekbench, you may be getting a single-core and multi-core rating to evaluate how good the chipset truly is. On the Realme X7 Max, I received a rating of 968 and three,327 respectively. The Mi 11X noticed a comparative rating of 994 and three,297 whereas the IQOO 7 scored 1,005 and three,348. From these scores, it’s fairly clear that there’s little or no that separates the three telephones by way of pure efficiency, regardless that the Dimensity 1200 has a barely higher Cortex A78 for performance-related duties.
For a extra general method to smartphone efficiency with components reminiscent of UI, Reminiscence, and GPU utilization, Antutu V9 offers the perfect outcomes. The Realme X7 Max received an general rating of 708,871 which is the best amongst the three gadgets however not by a lot. The IQOO 7 scored 703,644 whereas Mi 11X was the bottom at 675,463. One factor to notice right here is that the Realme X7 Max misplaced solely two % of its battery and gained about 5 levels in temperature. The Mi 11X ran scorching with a 7.5 diploma achieve in temperature and dropped 5 % battery throughout the take a look at.
GFXBench and 3DMark
This GPU-intensive benchmark runs a bunch of intensive simulations on the machine and returns an fps rely. Right here the Realme X7 Max and IQOO 7 received 60 fps on the each T-Rex and Manhattan exams, however the IQOO 7 shattered each gadgets with scores of 113 fps and 119 fps on the exams respectively. Even on Manhattan 3.1 the IQOO 7 received a a lot increased rating of 84 fps as in comparison with the 59 and 60 fps seen on the Mi 11X and X7 Max respectively. This may very well be as a result of IQOO 7’s Recreation body price interpolation characteristic that upscales the fps rely to match the display screen’s body price.
Extra readability might be gathered from the 3DMark benchmark’s WildLife Excessive and WildLife take a look at. Right here the IQOO 7’s lead is just not as vital as earlier than and it scored 4,243 on WildLife whereas the Realme X7 Max and Mi 11X returned scores of 4,169 and 4,186 respectively. The extra demanding Excessive take a look at noticed the IQOO 7 marginally falling behind the Realme X7 Max with a rating of 1,234 whereas the latter confirmed 1,284. The Mi 11X persistently got here final with a 1,221 rating. Nevertheless, it needs to be famous that such small variations in scores are negligible within the context of real-world utilization.
The discharge of Battlegrounds India, which is simply PUBG Cellular repurposed for the Indian viewers, goes to be introduced quickly and will develop into my most important supply for testing a tool’s graphical endurance. For now, using Name of Responsibility Cellular ought to suffice.
Name of Responsibility: Cellular
For this take a look at, I ran CoDM on all three telephones on the most Body Fee (FR) and Graphic High quality (GQ) settings that the gadgets allowed. Within the case of the Realme X7 Max, the machine provided the Max FR choice solely when the GQ was set at Excessive as a substitute of Very Excessive. Each the IQOO 7 and Mi 11X can run the sport at Very Excessive GQ and Max FR. To be truthful, the distinction between the 2 GQ choices is minimal however nonetheless one thing to remember if you’re a cellular sport purist.
Operating the title for half-hour I noticed the battery on the Realme X7 Max drop by about 9 % whereas the utmost temp gained was about 4 levels earlier than issues began to chill down. IQOO 7 additionally noticed a battery drop of about 9 % whereas the max temp gained was about 4.5 levels… with the telephone exhibiting no signal of cooling down in between. The Mi 11X had a 9 % lower in battery, however gained probably the most temperature at almost 8 levels. Looks like the X7 Max has a greater cooling system amongst the three gadgets and it’s seemingly that the machine can maintain higher body charges over longer durations.
From these exams, I can say that amongst these smartphones, the selection for gaming is a tie between the IQOO 7 and Realme X7 Max from a benchmarks standpoint. Nevertheless, the previous options Recreation body price interpolation so I might suggest the IQOO 7 because the default gaming machine between the three. The one niggle I’ve is with the Mi 11X’s lack of cooling throughout intensive graphical duties which might have an effect on the body price after a time frame, however apart from that, the three gadgets appear fairly evenly matched by way of pure efficiency.
