MediaTek Dimensity 2000 specs released, will be manufactured on TSMC’s 4nm node
According to well-known leaker Digital Chat Station, Dimensity 2000 will feature a Cortex-X2 main core clocked at 3.0GHz, three Cortex-A710 cores and four A510 cores.
Some rumors have already begun to suggest that flagship chipsets Mediatek Dimension next-gen will be based on the new ARMv9 architecture. The most recent of these rumors claim that the MediaTek could be one of the first companies to place orders with 4nm foundries from TSMC. Now the main specifications have been revealed, about the supposed Dimension 2000.
According to the well-known leaker Digital Chat Station, the Dimension 2000 will feature a Cortex-X2 main core clocked at 3.0 GHz, three Cortex-A710 cores and four A510 cores. This is very similar to the setup seen in Snapdragon 898 and not Exynos 2200 which will be based on the 4nm process of Samsung.

Recently the Samsung established a partnership with OMG for the GPU and the Huawei surrounded by an ocean of difficulties in finding chipmakers, the next Dimension 2000 will be the only chipset to use the new Mali-G710 MC10.
A Mali-G710 arrives as the successor of Mali-G78 and is slated to bring a 20% increase in speeds and 35% better performance for machine learning tasks, according to official figures from ARM. However, the Samsung, on the other hand, expects it to be about 30% faster than the older Mali chips it has used. Actual performance will be dictated by the clock speeds on the two 4nm nodes.
While there were initial benchmarks to give an idea of how fast these future chipsets will be, the best option would be to wait for devices to arrive with these chipsets, and in this way be able to measure the true speeds. All three of these chipsets are expected to be made official later this year or in January 2022. These would have been released by the end of this year, but due to shortages in the semiconductor industry, plans have been changed. The first ARMv9 phones with the new chips could be out as early as next year.
