MediaTek has started teasing the industry’s first 4nm chipset, likely the Dimensity 2000, and reports indicate that the upcoming flagship chip might also break the one-million mark on Antutu Benchmark.
(Update, November 19: The world’s first 4nm TSMC chipset is here! Check out the MediaTek Dimensity 9000’s features now.)
Recently, an unverified Antutu score of a Vivo device with model number V2184 sporting a MediaTek MT6983 (aka Dimensity 2000 chip) inside has made rounds on the internet. The Vivo unit in question achieved an overall result of 1,002,220 points and scored 250,385 in CPU tests.
The Dimensity 2000 is said to feature one ARM Cortex-X2 prime core operating at 3GHz alongside three Cortex-A710 cores and four Cortex-A510 cores. This is the same setup as the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 and Samsung Exynos 2200 flagship chips. Additionally, the Dimensity 2000 is rumored to use a 10-core Mali-G710 GPU, which is 20% faster than the Mali-G78.
For context, the current Antutu performance global leaderboards lists the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 Plus-based RedMagic 6 Pro as the top-performing Android smartphone with a score of 858,734. The Snapdragon 888 Plus, on the other hand, has never recorded 900,000 points on any verified device.
Both M1-powered Apple iPad Pro models have breached the 1,000,000 barrier in the past, though. The latest iPhone 13 series phones failed to reach similar results, with the top-end iPhone 13 Pro Max posting an average score of 843,813 points.
The news comes at about the same time as Taiwanese company’s CEO announced that MediaTek is now the largest smartphone SoC maker globally, with mobile chips accounting for 56% of its revenue in the third quarter of 2021. But clearly the company is not resting on its laurels, investing mightily in the high-end chip business, which could lead to the first Android phone on the market with a historic Antutu score.
