I have previously published several leaks of the benchmarks for both the Mediatek Dimensity 1000L and Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G which showed the Dimensity being more powerful than the Snapdragon in both Antutu and Geekbench.

Those were early benchmarks, and the comparison was made against the Redmi K30. Now the OPPO Reno3 series has been officially announced, new benchmarks have been revealed compared the two devices.

In the two new benchmarks, the Snapdragon 765G scored higher, while the Dimensity 1000L scored lower showing much more even results. However, the Dimensity 1000L still comfortably beats the SD765G.

The total scores have the Dimensity 1000L achieving 337669 while the Snapdragon 765 gets 320822. This puts Mediatek 5.25% ahead overall.

The score breakdown reveals some interesting differences, the Dimensity with its four powerful Cortex-A77 cores running at 2.2GHz embarrasses Qualcomm with a score of 126692 for the CPU while the SD765G with its two Cortex A76 cores gets 102230, which is 23.9% less.

Qualcomm doesn't lose out in all areas though, it outperforms the Mediatek in both the memory and UX benchmark, with the UX score being 22% higher than the Dimensity.

So this again confirms the strange position of the OPPO Reno3 series, the cheaper model is more powerful, but the Pro model has a superior design and an improved camera specification.
