- MediaTek Dimensity 9000 is the latest flagship SoC from the company and uses a 4nm node
- In a Geekbench 5 test, the Dimensity 9000 scored higher than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Samsung Exynos 2200
- The Dimensity 9000 is also more efficient and consumes less power than its competition
The latest flagship chipset from MediaTek’s stable has managed to outperform the competition from Qualcomm and Samsung. The Dimensity 9000 benchmark scores were higher than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Exynos 2200 on Geekbench 5. The results were leaked by tipster Ice Universe on Twitter, which showed the scores of five of the best mobile chipsets in the market. Apple’s A15 Bionic still enjoys a good lead over the others and held on to the top spot, but it was surprising to see the MediaTek chipset beat all its competition, that too by a considerable margin. The first smartphones with the Dimensity 9000 should begin shipping in the next few months.
MediaTek Dimensity 9000 benchmark scores
When MediaTek announced the Dimensity 9000, we expected it to go neck to neck with the flagship chipsets from Qualcomm and Samsung. However, it has managed to beat the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and the Exynos 2200 in both single and multi-core tests on Geekbench 5.
As you can see from the above results, the Dimensity 9000 managed to beat last year’s Snapdragon 888, the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, and the Exynos 2200. Its multi-core scores were also quite close to the Apple A15 Bionic. This shows that the MediaTek Dimensity 9000, with good cooling, can outperform the current market leaders with ease. It will also consume relatively less power thanks to the 4nm manufacturing process and save battery.
However, we must emphasise on ‘good cooling’ as that’s key in the mobile performance game. The real-world performance of the Dimensity 9000 will most definitely depend on the cooling offered on the smartphone. As mentioned in the beginning, smartphones equipped with the new MediaTek SoC will start shipping in a couple of months. Brands such as Xiaomi, Vivo, OnePlus, Samsung, Motorola, OPPO, and Realme will be the first to use the SoC.
