It was rumored last month that the next generation of MediaTek’s flagship Dimensity chipsets would use the new ARMv9 architecture. In addition, according to rumors, MediaTek is one of the first companies to place orders for TSMC’s 4nm products. Tech blog Digital Chat Station has revealed new details about the characteristics of the new chip, which will be called Dimensity 2000.
According to the source, the new flagship MediaTek chip will receive a high-performance Cortex-X2 core with a clock speed of 3 GHz. In addition, the chipset will contain three Cortex-A710 cores and four Cortex-A510 cores. Thus, the CPU configuration of the upcoming MediaTek chipset is likely to repeat the yet unannounced Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 and Samsung Exynos 2200.
The Mali-G710 MC10 will be used as the GPU. According to ARM, the Mali-G710 outperforms the G78 in performance by 20%. It’s worth noting that Samsung will equip the rival Exynos 2200 with AMD RDNA2 graphics, which should be more powerful than Mali graphics.
The CPU and GPU performance of the upcoming MediaTek chipset will largely depend on the clock speeds that can be achieved thanks to the transition to the 4nm process technology. The launch date for MediaTek Dimensity 2000 is still unknown, but it is assumed that the first smartphones with ARMv9 processors will hit the market early next year.
