Black Shark 5 Pro leads Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 domination of AnTuTu ranking in April

Latest ranking from AnTuTu revealed a Qualcomm domination both in the flagship and mid-range segments. Nine out of the top 10 best performing flagships run on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, while seven out of the top 10 midrangers are powered by the Snapdragon 870.

However, Dimensity 8100-powered devices managed to steal the first top spots in the mid-range competition, while the Black Shark 5 Pro dominated the most powerful segment.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 domination here is logical, given the fact Exynos 2200 phones are not selling in China, Dimensity 9000 devices are only now coming out and Kirin chipsets dropped off the race.

The AnTuTu benchmark tests four aspects of the chipset’s performance – GPU, CPU, UX and memory performance. However, instances of manufacturers specifically tuning their hardware to boost the AnTuTu score aren’t uncommon.

The mid-range field reveals the Dimensity 8100 is a runaway leader, with the Snapdragon 870 a distant second. We should expect more devices to join this list once manufacturers get their hands on new chips but that might not be soon, given how the mobile industry is still struggling with supply chain issues.
