Dimensity 7050 Tested: Benchmarks and Specs

Nothing has launched the CMF Phone 1, featuring the Dimensity 7300 chipset, which rivals the Realme Narzo 70 Pro equipped with the Dimensity 7050. Since both phones fall into the same price bracket, people are looking for Dimensity 7050 benchmarks and how its CPU and GPU perform. So in this guide, we’ve compiled benchmark numbers from Geekbench, AnTuTu, CPU Throttling test, and more.

Dimensity 7050: Geekbench 6 CPU

In our first Geekbench CPU test, the Dimensity 7050 on the Realme Narzo 70 Pro achieves a single-core score of 952 and a multi-core score of 2,380. It’s a year-old chipset, built on TSMC’s 6nm process node. The CPU performance puts the chipset into a lower-end segment. With older ARM CPU cores, and only two Cortex-A78 cores clocked up to 2.6GHz, the CPU performance disappoints, especially in multi-threaded tasks.

Dimensity 7050: AnTuTu Benchmark

In the AnTuTu test, the Dimensity 7050 chipset scores a total of 612,320 points, which is pretty decent. The CPU gets 182,641 points and the GPU only manages to achieve 116,443 points. In the AnTuTu Storage test, the Realme Narzo 70 Pro featuring a UFS 3.1 storage gets a respectable 69,585 points.

Dimensity 7050: CPU Throttling Test

In a 15-minute CPU Throttling test, the Narzo 70 Pro (or the Realme P1) packing the Dimensity 7050 performed exceptionally well. There is simply no throttling on the CPU performance, even for a longer period.

Realme has included a large VC cooling system for heat dissipation, which helps in sustaining the performance and keeping the chipset cool. So, while the CPU performance is not top-notch, you are going to get consistent performance out of the phone.

Dimensity 7050: 3DMark Wild Life Stress Test

To test the Arm Mali-G68 MC4 GPU on the Dimensity 7050, we ran the 3DMark Wild Life Stress test. While the GPU offers great stability, the performance is again on the lower-end side. It gets the best loop score of 2,293 and the lowest loop score of 2,285. Even older competing chipsets in the same 3DMark test come close to the 3,000 mark, at least.

Dimensity 7050: AITuTu Benchmark

The MediaTek NPU 550 on the Dimensity 7050 SoC is decently powerful, delivering a score of 71,311 in the AITuTu benchmark test. Since it’s a year-old chip, the NPU is about 30% less powerful than the current competition.

Dimensity 7050: 5G Speed Test

Coming to our final 5G speed test, MediaTek’s 5G modem on the Dimensity 7050 performed fairly well. It achieved a peak download speed of 265 Mbps and a peak upload speed of 7.58 Mbps on Jio’s 5G network. MediaTek says the modem supports dual 5G SIM connectivity and VoNR as well.

Coming to the conclusion, the Dimensity 7050 is designed for budget phones, slightly on the lower-end side. Both the CPU and GPU are decidedly weak, compared to the current stack of mid-range chipsets. While the cooling system is incredible and the credit goes to Realme, if you are looking for a performant chipset, the Dimensity 7050 is not the one.
