OPPO Reno4 Pro 5G gives DxOMark a few surprises

OPPO Reno4 Pro 5G gives DxOMark a few surprises

Compared to its Find line of smartphones, OPPO's Reno leads its mid-range family. While the performance of mid-tier devices has been catching up to high-end premium phones, especially in the 5G department, their photography performance still leaves a lot to be desired. Once in a while, a mid-range smartphone does rise among the ranks and, depending on your needs, OPPO's Reno4 Pro 5G could actually be that.

Snapdragon 888 benchmarks are out – Here’s the problem with them

Snapdragon 888 benchmarks are out – Here’s the problem with them

The Snapdragon 888 is Qualcomm's flagship chipset for Android smartphones in 2021, and the stakes have arguably never been higher. On the one hand, Apple is flexing its chip-design chops, and while Qualcomm modems may be in its current hardware, that's not going to be the case forever. Meanwhile, Qualcomm's Android SoC rivals aren't standing still.

iPhone 12 on DxOMark falls way behind its siblings

iPhone 12 on DxOMark falls way behind its siblings

Apple's new iPhones this year might have 5G support as their headlining feature but they might be better remembered for their photography capabilities. At least as far as the biggest and most expensive iPhone 12 Pro Max is concerned, Apple is catching up with the top performers in DxOMark's benchmarks. Not all 2020 iPhones are created equal and not all of them have the same cameras. While the iPhone 12 Pro models are just two points shy of each other, the non-Pro iPhone 12 might leave some mobile photographers a bit wanting.

OnePlus Nord DxOMark performance is what you’d expect

OnePlus Nord DxOMark performance is what you’d expect

The OnePlus Nord marks the company's return to an underserved mid-tier smartphone market. By using a different name, OnePlus is ensuring that it won't be confused for its higher-end models and that consumers will be able to set their expectations right. Those expectations shouldn't be high, to begin with, but it would also be a disservice to write it off completely. As DxOMark found out, the OnePlus Nord does decently when it comes to taking photos and recording videos, as long as you don't expect to produce award-winning pieces from it.

M1 MacBook Pro with 8GB, 16GB RAM show surprising benchmark results

M1 MacBook Pro with 8GB, 16GB RAM show surprising benchmark results

Apple's M1 Silicon has definitely been hogging the computing news spotlight these past weeks, most of them comparing its performance with Intel's chips. Not all M1 Macs are the same, of course, and not just counting the difference between an M1 MacBook Air and an M1 MacBook Pro. Even the MacBook Pro (Late 2020) offers two slightly different models with different RAM capacities. Thankfully, someone took the time to benchmark these two variants, and the results might surprise you a bit.

Intel boasts battery performance superiority over AMD in Intel tests

Intel boasts battery performance superiority over AMD in Intel tests

Intel has taken quite a beating this year, from AMD's unwavering onslaught to the damning benchmarks of the Apple Silicon M1. The launch of its 11th-gen Tiger Lake processors for laptops has seemingly been pushed to the sidelines as a consequence and it is looking for ways to get back into the spotlight. What better way to do that than by calling out its eternal rival AMD over the latter's battery performance and, sure enough, the benchmarks ran by Intel show it having the upper hand in that particular use case.

Apple Silicon M1 outperforms older NVIDIA, AMD desktop GPUs in benchmarks

Apple Silicon M1 outperforms older NVIDIA, AMD desktop GPUs in benchmarks

Apple's first-ever ARM-based Silicon, the M1, will be powering its next generation of Macs and MacBooks, some of which will be used for more than just casual computing tasks. Naturally, there are concerns about its performance versus tried and tested processors from the likes of Intel and AMD. Early CPU benchmarks already proved that the M1 can run circles around MacBooks running on recent Intel chips and now GPU benchmarks are proving Apple's claims of impressive graphics performance.

iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max nearly beat all DxOMark contenders

iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max nearly beat all DxOMark contenders

Although it was a pioneer in the smartphone photography field, it seemed for a time that Apple was slipping off the charts, at least DxOMark's charts. It has steadily been trying to regain ground in the past generations and its iPhone 12 Pro duo this year marks its biggest attempt to reclaim its position. As far as DxOMark's reviewers are concerned, it nearly succeeded in doing exactly that but still comes up short against the market leader Huawei.

Apple Silicon M1 benchmarks give credence to performance claims

Apple Silicon M1 benchmarks give credence to performance claims

Apple's announcement of the first generation of Macs running on its own Silicon processors was unsurprisingly filled with bold claims. Given the novelty of the M1 chip and its ARM-based design, there might be some apprehension if the new MacBooks will be able to hold their own against Intel's most powerful processors. Geekbench scores for these new computers have started popping up that does seem to confirm Apple's claims, trumping Intel-based MacBooks except in one case.

AMD Radeon RX 6000 series: Benchmarks claimed VS NVIDIA RTX

AMD Radeon RX 6000 series: Benchmarks claimed VS NVIDIA RTX

AMD Big Navi is here with the AMD Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards, and AMD's got the benchmarks to prove it. Of course we wouldn't want to claim the end-all, be-all accuracy of the company reporting said benchmarks since they've got a LOT to gain from said benchmarks being favorable to their cards... but the results are telling, just the same. Included in the mix today are the AMD Radeon RX 6800, 6800 XT, and 6900 XT, with details on how they stack up VS NVIDIA's RTX 3000 GPU lineup.

Huawei Mate 40 Pro DxOMark scores are unsurprisingly high

Huawei Mate 40 Pro DxOMark scores are unsurprisingly high

Huawei has finally unveiled its last high-end smartphone of the year and it was pretty much as what leaks have said it would. Nothing was really left to be surprised about, including what is expected to be the constant highlight of Huawei's flagships. As usual, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro was able to bag DxOMark's top spots, both in regular cameras as well as selfies. That despite actually shaving off a few specs and features from its camera setup.

Galaxy Note 20 Ultra Exynos, Snapdragon models still have performance gaps

Galaxy Note 20 Ultra Exynos, Snapdragon models still have performance gaps

Samsung may have one of the most powerful Android phones in the market today but it also has some of the most expensive. There are definitely other options around with almost the same raw power, or even better, but some might argue that you are getting what you pay for. That might not actually be the case for Samsung's flagships, which may have different processors inside and even a different cooling system. And while the prices might be the same, JerryRigEverything's test shows the performance definitely isn't.
