Last month, a report claimed that the next generation MediaTek flagship chip series uses the ARMv9 architecture. Now, new rumors say that the Dimension 2000 chip will be made with 4-nanometer lithography from TSMC and will use the Cortex-X2 core with a frequency of 3.0 GHz.
A reliable Chinese source called “Digital Chat Station” configures this chip Specified. According to this source, we should expect to use a Cortex-X2 core with a frequency of 3.0 GHz along with 3 Cortex-A710 cores and 4 Cortex-A510 cores. This configuration will not be different from the Snapdragon 898 and Exynos 2200 chips, although these chips are produced with Samsung’s 4-nanometer lithography.
The 2000 Dimension seems to be powered by the Mali-G710 MC10 GPU. Given that Samsung will use AMD graphics processors in its next flagship chip, and Huawei will have a lot of problems producing powerful chips, MediaTek will probably be the first and even for a long time the only chip equipped with the G710.
The G710 GPU is up to 20% faster than the G78. Samsung is said to be using the AMD graphics processor instead of Mali to achieve 30% higher speeds. According to ARM, its new GPU has up to 20% higher energy efficiency and up to 35% better performance in machine learning.
For CPU and GPU, it specifies the operating frequency, which can be achieved with 4nm nodes. The Exynos 2200 is rated at 3.0 GHz, and Qualcomm is reportedly looking for 3.09 GHz.
MediaTek seems to be rapidly narrowing its gap with Samsung and Qualcomm, and next year we will have to wait for almost tough competition between these companies. Of course, Snapdragon 898 and Dimension 2200 will probably be introduced by the end of this year. In the past, it was said that the MediaTek chip has up to 20% higher energy efficiency than the Snapdragon 898.
