Snapdragon 662 vs 660 vs 665 vs MediaTek Helio G70 – Antutu-Geekbench benchmark scores

Qualcomm has a great record of proving the best possible performance in budget smartphones with its Snapdragon 6 series SoCs. Now this series has a bunch of popular processors which also includes the new Snapdragon 662 SoC. This SoC has been launch by the company on the 21st of January with some special connectivity features like Wi-F 6 and NavIC (Navigation with Indian Constellation).

It fits between the previously launched Snapdragon 660 and Snapdragon 665. At least the nomenclature suggests the same. But is it actually the case here? We will find out by comparing the Snapdragon 662 with the Snapdragon 660 and 665. Also, we are including the new MediaTek Helio G70 SoC as this SoC is going to power the smartphones of a similar price segment. So, let’s get started.

Manufacturing Process & CPU

The power efficiency is a bit better in the Snapdragon 662 and 665 as they are built over the 11nm fabrication. The Helio G70, on the other hand, has the 12nm fabrication. On-paper the 11nm fabrication is looking to be a bit more promising than the 12nm in terms of power efficiency. However, the 14nm fabrication the Snapdragon 660 stands nowhere in this comparison as this is a very much outdated fabrication now.

Snapdragon 662 architecture

Coming to the CPU, all the four SoCs have 64-bit memory architecture with an Octa-Core design. The Snapdragon 662 and 665 have exactly the same CPU configuration. There are four Kryo260 Gold Cortex-A73 cores at 2.0GHz and four Kryo260 Silver Cortex-A53 cores at 1.8GHz. The Snapdragon 660 also has the same Kryo260 cores’ configuration but the clock speed of Gold cores is 2.2GHz and of the Silver cores is 1.8GHz.

The story of Helio G70 is a bit better as there are two Cortex-A75 performance cores at 2.0GHz and six Cortex-A53 efficiency cores at 1.7GHz. The use of Cortex-A75 cores is a big improvement over the Cortex-A73 and hence MediaTek Helio G70 has a slight edge in CPU performance. The Snapdragon 665 and 662, both because of improved fabrication, are capable of performing a bit better than Snapdragon 660.

GPU & Gaming

The Snapdragon 662 and 665, are exactly the same and utilizes the same Qualcomm Adreno 610 GPU. However the Snapdragon 660, because of being an old processor, comes with Adreno 512. Now the Adreno 5 series is noway can match the Adreno 6 series. So there is a quite big advancement in GPU performance.

The MediaTek Helio G70 uses the Mali-G52 2EEMC2 GPU with 825MHz clock speed. It is a dual-core GPU which has also been used in the Kirin 810. Helio G70 has the best GPU performance here and can easily outperform the Snapdragon 662 and 665 easily. Whereas the Snapdragon 660 has the least performing GPU.

AnTuTu-Geekbench Scores

Currently, the Snapdragon 662 and MediaTek Helio G70 are very new in the market and there are no smartphones available with these SoC and hence we don’t have any kind of benchmarks of these SoCs. But we will be updating the comparison as soon as any of the processors hit the internet with any type of benchmark. Below, we have provided the AnTuTu and  Geekbench Scores of Snapdragon 660 and 665 as of now.

AnTuTu Scores

The Snapdragon 660 has a score of 1,33,324 points whereas the Snapdragon 665 has 1,39,495 points. Obviously there is not a huge difference but the Snapdragon 665 is in the lead. As we mentioned, remaining two Snapdragon 662 and Helio G70 Antutu scores are not yet updated as they are new to the list.

Geekbench Scores

Talking about the Single-Core scores then the Snapdragon 660 and 665 has got a scoring of 1,616 and 1,537 respectively. And the Multi-Core scores for the same are 5731 and  5707 respectively. Although there is a very minute difference, it is pretty surprising that the Snapdragon 660 is leading the Geekbenhc benchmarks. Similar to Antutu, Snapdragon 662 and Helio G70 Geekbench scores will be available later. We will be updating the list as soon as we get the further call.

Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning

The Snapdragon 660 has the company’s Hexagon 660 DSP which is an extremely basic DSP and comes with Qualcomm All-Ways Aware technology. There is no support for other AI features like Vector eXtensions (HVX), and Neural Processing SDK. These features, however, are available in the Hexagon 683 and 686 DSPs found in the SD 662 and 665. Here the Snapdragon 665 has better DSP than both Snapdragon 662 and 660. But the performance gap between the Snapdragon 662 and 665 is very less as compared to the gap between Snapdragon 660 and 665.


Talking about the MediaTek Helio G70, then this processor doesn’t have any specific named DSP but the company calls it the fast AI-Performance. The company claims that this is capable of all the basic AI photography tasks. It is combined with the MediaTek NeuroPilot and third-party AI development APIs are also supported. Here, the Snapdragon and Helio G70 are almost similar in AI with Snapdragon 662 right below them. The Snapdragon 660 is very far away from all the other processors.

Camera & Optics

The Snapdragon 660 has Spectra 160 ISP whose, successor, the Spectra 165 ISP is found in the Snapdragon 665. The Snapdragon 662, on the other hand, works over a completely different ISP range. It has the Spectra 350L ISP which resembles the Snapdragon 730G’s ISP. Both Snapdragon 662 and 665 support up to 25MP single camera but in terms of expansion of single-camera support, the SD 662 can reach up to 192MP whereas SD 665 goes only up to 48MP. The dual-camera support of 16MP is also a similarity that Snapdragon 662 and 665 shares.

The Snapdragon 660 has support for 24MP single-camera and dual-cameras of 16MP. The MediaTek Helio G70 has an un-named ISP but has support for 48MP single-camera or up to  16MP in dual-cameras. The Snapdragon660,  662 and 665 are capable of recording up to 4K videos at 30fps whereas the Helio G70 has 2K resolution encoding at 30fps.

Display, RAM, & Storage

In terms of display support, all the processors support display of up to Full HD resolution, except Snapdragon 660. The Snapdragon 660 has support for Quad HD display which is just an unnecessary capability as the market segment these SoCs hit will never get a smartphone with a Qual HD display.

The RAM support is just exactly the same in each and every processor. These SoCs support RAM if the LPDDR4x version with a maximum frequency of 1866MHz. As far as the onboard storage is concerned, all the processors support eMMC5.1 type storage but additionally, the Snapdragon 662 and 665 have UFS2.1 type storage’s support whereas the Helio G70 has UFS2.0 type storage support. The Snapdragon 660 doesn’t support any other type of storage expect eMMC5.1.


All these processors are 4G processors and obvious these series from these companies are not made to provide innovative features like 5G. The Snapdragon 660 and 665, both are having the same Qualcomm X15 LTE modem which provides up to 600Mbps of download and 150Mbps of upload speeds. On the other hand, the Snapdragon 662 has the Qualcomm X11 modem which is pretty much lower in connection than the X12 modem. This modem provides 390Mbps of Download speed and 150Mbps of upload speed.

Talking about the MediaTek Helio G70 then this processor has the worst connectivity options. Its modem has a maximum download speed of 300Mbps and a maximum upload speed of 150Mbps. In addition, the Snapdragon 662 is the only processor here which has Wi-Fi 6 support and also supports the ISRO-invented, NavIC support. Here you should go with Snapdragon 662.

Conclusion – Which One Is Better?

For Snapdragon 660 there is a straightaway no from us as this processor is no more fits in the 2020’s mobile processor checklist. It has an outdated fabrication, outdated GPU, outdated ISP, outdated DSP, etc. The Helio G70 could be a good option to have. It is providing a better CPU and equally capable GPU. However, areas like connectivity and AI are a little weak in this SoC but they are acceptable and make this SoC a good package overall.

The Snapdragon 662 has the best ISP and DSP. Also, it has support for Wi-Fi 6 and NavIC. And this is the actual Snapdragon 660’s version to fit the 2020’s checklist. For this comparison, the Snapdragon 662 is the best and then we will go with the MediaTek Helio G70. The Snapdragon 665 is also a good performer but Snapdragon 662 and Helio G70 are a bit advanced than this SoC.


I just love technology.
