MediaTek benchmarks the Dimensity 9000: faster CPU than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, slower GPU

17 December 2021
Not by much in both cases - the two chipsets perform within 15% of each other.

- Dimensity 9000 uses TSMC's 4nm
- Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 uses Samsung's 4nm

At 2.85ghz Dimensity's Cortex A710 consumes 1.72W
At 2.5ghz Snapdragon's Cortex A710 consumes 2.06W

TSMC's processus is far more efficient.
As power and heating are linked, mais tour conclusion!

But Snapdragon give constant fps

MediaTek graphics are mostly crappy that's why gameplay is not as smooth.

I feel like all these advancements are overkill, we can already play advanced 3D games like Fornite on phone!

Good for mediatek, but really question is will it throttle in the long run.
Remember making your cpu higher clocked, will cause more heat which will throttle the chip.
Why do think snapdragon don't clock theirs higher probably, throttle issue.

A little faster navigation but worse gaming and worse update support.

KondriX, 19 Dec 2021Hmm, and what would be those heavy tasks on a phone? Curiou... moreIt's not how tasks are demanding per se but how code is programmed and executed (worker threads and SMP affinity). Most of the code is still optimised for SMP on only two core's, of course different tasks are distributed on different core's and more of them and worker's affinity and schedule remains kept on the first starting core of the cluster. Chrome is much bigger and more complicated than Linux kernel as an example.

Curious really, as the majority do messaging, watch/listen music/movies and some photos. I consider this 'normal' tasks, but of course different people, different needs :)

These scores will only improve with optimizations to various benchmarks applications to accommodate the new chips.
Apple a15 is cry!ng in a corner somewhere after the brutal loss it took in Antutu.

Anonymous, 17 Dec 2021If antutu was really worth, phone with similar specs would ... moreyeah things have changed... even with the same specs on paper their configs and versions of the parts used can differ a different gpu less or more core perhaps boosting the clock speeds... phone manufacturers have control over that eg if a gaming phone needs more performance sure drain the chipset boost everything to the max but if its a normal everyday phone the may intentionally slow down or bar the clock speeds or use a weaker gpu to get more battery life and use out of it and to stop it from heating and does make a difference i used to overclock my gpu's and you can get quite a lot of performance boost even if its 5 percent lets say and a chip already scores a million thats 50000 so yeah i get what you're saying
