last January, the list of the most powerful smartphones in the Chinese market has undergone some changes in direction, with the introduction of new models on the market, highlighting the departure of the Black Shark 4S Pro from Xiaomi, replaced by the IQOO 9 Pro. A month later and the smartphone did not even heat up the place and was already replaced by another model. One thing is certain, Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor dominates practically the entire table, except for the last place, a model still with the previous Snapdragon 888+.
In this sense, with virtually all smartphones offering the same processing specifications, memories and internal storage at the same level, the score guaranteed by the AnTuTu benchmark can be justified by the design of the equipment. In other words, the system dissipation and optimization of your operating system can make all the difference in the performance of the equipment.

And that is why Nubia Red Magic 7 now takes the top spot in the chart with 1,046,401 points. AnTuTu really highlights its dissipation system capable of obtaining good performance both at the CPU and GPU level. In this case, the ICE 8.0 cooling system, which introduces a fan capable of spinning at 20,000 revolutions per minute. And the air inlets and outlets are larger, able to circulate heat, as well as the introduction of nine layers of dissipation materials. So there is no processing heat capable of slowing down this new “beast”.
Thus, the two best smartphones of the last month complete the podium. The IQOO 9, which curiously was ahead of its Pro version, with 1,017,735 points and 1,017,447 points respectively. A minimal difference in the performance of the two models. In fourth place is the realme GT2 Pro, which this month failed to break the million point barrier recorded in January.
The OnePlus 10 Pro takes fifth place with 989,289 points. The Xiaomi 12 Pro took sixth place with 989,083, with the benchmark mentioning that the device’s cooling system cannot fully handle the heat generated by the CPU. In seventh place is the Redmi K50 esports version, with a record 980,611 points.
Finally, closing the table, the Motorola Edge X30 ranked in the eighth position of the most powerful, with 978,341 points. Interestingly, this model, along with the OnePlus 10 Pro which ranked fifth in the table, are the only models with 8 GB of RAM, the others having between 12 and 16 GB. Xiaomi 12 ranked ninth with 963 083 dots. Finally, with almost a year of presence in the Top 10, the main leader of 2021 takes tenth place: Xiaomi’s gaming smartphone, the Black Shark 4S Pro.
