- Mediatek representatives have dismissed heating concerns regarding the Dimensity 9000.
- A company executive pointed the finger at rival chip designer Qualcomm instead.
Mediatek has just announced the Dimensity 9000 processor, intending to take on Qualcomm’s best flagship chipsets. Between the TSMC 4nm process, CPU layout, and impressive imaging capabilities, this chipset definitely has the potential to steal some thunder from Qualcomm and Samsung’s 2022 silicon.
The announcement also comes after reports earlier this year that the current Snapdragon 888 series processor, built on a Samsung 5nm process, suffers from overheating and/or throttling. In saying so, our own testing suggests that the Qualcomm chipset throttles later than the Samsung Exynos 2100 (albeit at the expense of endurance).
