Mediatek Dimensity 8050 vs Dimensity 8100 Benchmarks 

The Infinix Note 30 VIP and Infinix GT 10 Pro were recently released, featuring the Dimensity 8050 chipset. This is the most powerful Infinix phone that has launched to date and has an impressive spec all around.

Based on the name, you would think this chipset is almost the same as the Dimensity 8100, which is used on phones such as the OPPO Reno 9 Pro 5G and OnePlus 10R 5G. However, the chipset is completely different.

The post looks at how the two chipset perform in comparison.

Both Antutu and Geekbench have rolled out new versions, leading to variations in test results across the versions. I managed to test the Infinix Note 30 VIP using the V9 version and revisited the Realme GT Neo 3, this time using V10.

Interestingly, the Antutu results showed a more significant disparity than anticipated. When using the V10 test, the Dimensity 8100 recorded a score that was 19% superior, boasting a 27% lead in the CPU score. The GPU score was higher by 17%, a predictable outcome given that the Dimensity 8100 incorporates the more advanced Mali-G610 GPU.

The outcomes align with expectations: the Mediatek Dimensity 8050 leads in single-core performance due to its solitary core with a heightened clock speed. On the other hand, multi-core performance leans toward the Dimensity 8100, given its three A78 cores have a clock rate of 2.85GHz as opposed to 2.6GHz.

In examining the Geekbench 5 results, a benchmark tool I’ve used for numerous devices, the Dimensity 8050 performs commendably. However, the CPU score for the Dimensity 8100 seems unusually high, causing me to doubt the reliability of the CPU results from both Geekbench and Antutu.

It’s with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 that we witness a significant surge in multi-core performance. When it comes to single-core performance, results for the Snapdragon 888 varied greatly among different brands. It wasn’t until the SD8 Gen1 and Gen2 iterations that we saw marked improvements in single-core outputs.

The Infinix Note 30 VIP certainly holds its own in the gaming department. Although its peak scores on the 3DMark Wild Life stress test aren’t exactly groundbreaking, its overall performance slightly surpasses that of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870, found in the Realme GT Neo 3T. For anyone other than hardcore gamers, this level of performance is commendably balanced in terms of cost and capability.

Contrasting it with the Dimensity 8100, while the CPU specs seem fairly analogous, there’s an evident disparity in GPU output. Consequently, the Dimensity 8100 posts a peak score that’s 19% greater than the Dimensity 8050.

In juxtaposition with other contemporary chipsets, it’s the consistency in performance that’s notable. Take the Pixel 6, my daily driver, equipped with the Google Tensor chipset: while it might register a peak score towering over the Dimensity 8050 by more than 50%, its substantial thermal throttling results in a minimum score that’s 24% lower. For gaming purposes, having a reliable, sustained performance is more valuable than fleeting peak capabilities.


The Mediatek Dimensity 8050 is a remarkable chipset that, in my view, would offer enough power for most users without the high costs typically tied to top-tier chipsets.

Infinix has announced that the phone will be priced starting at $299, making it an incredibly attractive deal.
