Dimensity 9000+ powered ASUS ROG Phone 6D tops AnTuTu charts
AnTuTu has revealed its best-performing flagship smartphones list for September 2022 in China. The ASUS ROG Phone 6D, which is backed by the MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ SoC, has successfully managed to beat the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset-powered OnePlus Ace Pro to take the top spot. With 16GB/512GB configuration, the former obtained a benchmark score of 11,23,036, whereas the latter received 11,11,200 points.
Why does this story matter?
- While MediaTek is dominating the list of best-performing mid-range smartphones for September, it has also shown its potential to top the charts for flagship handsets.
- Less than two weeks ago, ASUS unveiled the ROG Phone 6D (a Dimensity 9000+ SoC-powered version of the ROG Phone 6). It is now leading AnTuTu's list of best flagship models, outperforming Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1-powered smartphones.
What are AnTuTu scores?
AnTuTu is a well-known benchmarking platform that evaluates a device's performance based on processor and other hardware details. It gives the handset an overall numerical score as well as individual scores for every test it conducts. The higher the score of the device, the better is its processing speed and overall performance. Final score displayed is the result of the data collected from tests.
