MediaTek Dimensity 2000 leak shows a slight edge over Snapdragon 888

Qualcomm is likely to face some fire as new challengers try to intrude on its area, with Google jumping on the mobile chipset bandwagon and OPPO following fast behind. Of course, MediaTek has already dethroned the tech giant for a few quarters in a row, and the latter may be about to make its most serious attempt yet. Early indications of its impending Dimensity 2000 5G CPU are encouraging, and it could at the very least give Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 a run for its money next year.

Qualcomm has been the leading supplier of mobile SoCs (systems-on-chip) for smartphones for years, at least on the Android side of the globe. It was unchallenged until last year when MediaTek began nibbling at its pie and outsold it in terms of sheer shipment volume. Of course, Qualcomm is still the market leader in terms of earnings and popularity, not to mention the wide range of firms that use its processors on their phones.

The Dimensity processors from MediaTek have helped the business get a stronger foothold in the 5G industry, although few would consider them capable of competing with Qualcomm’s top flagships. That could change with the Dimensity 2000, at least when it comes to raw CPU frequencies. According to these two leaks from Digital Chat Station, MediaTek’s forthcoming premium processor could compete with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888.

The Samsung Snapdragon 888 and the TSMC Dimensity 2000 will be 4nm processors with the same Cortex-X2 “super big” core running at the same 3.0GHz speed. The difference will be in the other cores, clocked at different frequencies while being identical. The Dimensity 2000 will have three large cores running at 2.85GHz and four little cores at 1.8GHz, which is somewhat faster than the Snapdragon 888’s 2.5GHz and 1.79GHz.

Of course, such numbers don’t always equate to actual device performance, and there are still a lot of variables to consider before deciding on a victor between the two. Even if the Dimensity 2000 only matches the Snapdragon 888 performance, it’s still a major win for MediaTek. That will be especially true if it can cut the cost of its chips and attract more firms to adopt them in their premium gadgets.
