The Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 and the MediaTek Dimensity 720, both are mid-range chipsets of the companies where the Snapdragon 678 is a 4G chipset while the Dimensity 720 supports 5G also. Here is their comparison.
Speaking of the CPU section where both chipsets have a 64-bit eight-core CPU. Here the Snapdragon 678 has Qualcomm Kryo 460 CPU that integrates two ARM Cortex-A76 Gold cores ticking at 2.20GHz and other six Cortex-A55 Silver cores at 1.80GHz clock speed while talking about the Dimensity 720, it has two ARM Cortex-A76 Big cores operating at up to 2GHz clock speed and other six Cortex-A55 Little cores at 2GHz clock speed.
Here in both chipsets, we get the same CPU architecture but the SD678 has a better clock speed in comparison to the Dimensity 720. So the CPU processing of SD 678 is better than the Dimensity 720.
The Snapdragon 678 integrates the Adreno 612 GPU while the Dimensity 720 has an ARM Mali-G57 MC3 GPU which is better than Adreno 612 presented on the Snapdragon 678.
So in terms of gaming, the Snapdragon 678 is unable to beat the Dimensity 720.
The MediaTek Dimensity 720 is a 7nm chip while the Snapdragon 678 is fabricated on 11nm process technology. So in terms of power consumption, the Dimensity 720 is more efficient than the Snapdragon 678.
Speaking of the Snapdragon 678, it features the Qualcomm Snapdragon X12 LTE Modem that can achieve a maximum downloading speed of 600 Mbps using LTE Cat-12 and an uploading speed of up to 150Mbps using LTE Cat-13. While talking about the Dimensity 720, it has an Integrated 5G Modem which can provide a much better downloading and uploading speed.
For handling AI Tasks, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 has a 3rd Gen AI Engine which is Qualcomm Hexagon 685 DSP while the Dimensity 720 has a MediaTek APU.
