When compared to high-end models of Mi 5 there is a 20% drop in performance on the Mi 5 Standard Edition which can be credited to under-clocking of the chipset.

    Ive seen the galaxy s7 benched repeatedly with antutu .. it was a mixed bag. First run was about 130k, second run 94k. Third run it did not continue to fall, scoring 95k. Overall the performance drop is about the same as the 810 in a favorable enclosure, but it happens all at once. I think that if samsung didnt put a copper heatsink in, it could have been worse. This brings the realworld performance down to the range of the x20, except in gaming. I imagine the underclocked 820 will have less degradation… it might be the better deal (look at the 808 vs the 650).
