Now that more chipset companies are bringing new flagship chip, the race for the most powerful and efficient has started. MediaTek has begun to tease the first smartphones with a 4nm process chip inside.
Vivo is among the first OEMs to use this chip. And a new report claims that a Vivo phone powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 2000 chip is the first Android device to get score over 1 million points in AnTuTu.
The phone is currently only known as the Vivo V2184 and its powered by a chipset with the model number MT6983. This chip is believed to be the Dimensity 2000 and the phone could be in the new Vivo X series.
Note that the Android phone with the current top point on AnTuTu is the ZTE Nubia Red Magic 6 powered by Snapdragon 888 with the AnTuTu score of 858,734. The only device to have gone past the 1 million mark on AnTuTu is the Apple’s M1-powered iPad Pros.
The promo video posted by MediaTek for the Dimensity 2000 claims promises of superior performance and battery life. Rumor has it that MediaTek is using 4nm tech from TSMC which different from Samsung’s 4nm tech which will be used by Qualcomm and Samsung in their chip.
According to DCS, the features of the Dimensity 2000 includes; Cortex-X2 core at 3.0 GHz, three Cortex-A710 cores and four A510. Samsung’s Exynos 2200 is also said to be targeting 3.0 GHz for its X2 core and a leaked photo of a Snapdragon 898-powered phone showed the X2 core at same 3.0GHz.
This means that the three chipsets may have similar CPU performance, but they will have different GPUs – the Dimensity 2000 uses ARM Mali-G710 MC10, an AMD RDNA 2 GPU for the Exynos 2200 and a new Adreno 670 for the Snapdragon 898.
Of all three chipsets, only Qualcomm has confirmed the expected release date for Snapdragon 898. Both MediaTek and Samsung is yet to reveal any info as to when we can expect their chipsets to be released.
