Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 7 in India last month starting Rs 9,999, powered by an Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 64-bit 14nm mobile platform based on FinFET technology with Adreno 512 GPU that has support for Open GL ES 3.2, Open CL 2.0, Vulkan graphics and Hexagon 680 DSP that includes Hexagon Vector extensions (HVX), designed to support Caffe2 and Tensorflow for machine learning and image processing using the Snapdragon Neural Processing Engine SDK.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 features 8 Kryo 260 cores out of which 4 performance cores are built on ARM Cortex A73 base, clocked at 2.2GHz per core and other 4 efficiency core are built on ARM Cortex A53 base, clocked at 1.8GHz per core. It supports LPDDR4/4x, dual-channel memory up to 8GB but Redmi Note 7 is available in 3/32 and 4/64 memory configuration based on LPDDR4X RAM, we have 4GB RAM with 64GB storage variant with us and here are the synthetic benchmark scores,
AnTuTu Benchmark 7
Redmi Note 7 scored 1,35,068 points in the AnTuTu Benchmark 7 beating Vivo V11 Pro and Mi A2 which are also powered by Snapdragon 660 but it fell behind Kirin 710 powered Honor 8X and Helio P70 powered Realme U1.
