Dimensity 2000 and Snapdragon 898 will use ARM’s new V9 architecture

Recent news says that both the MediaTek Dimensity 2000 and Snapdragon 898 will use ARM’s new V9 architecture and that both CPUs will use Cortex-A710 and Cortex-A510 cores.

While the Dimensity 1200 and Snapdragon 778G compete at the mid-range price point, MediaTek will launch its first true flagship SoC, the Tiangui 2000, in some time, which will compete with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 898 on all fronts. A new leak now provides more details about both chips.

According to Chinese blogger Digital Gossip Station, both the Snapdragon 898 and MediaTek Dimensity 2000 will be powered by ARM’s new Cortex-A710 and Cortex-A510 cores. Both chips will of course be based on ARM’s V9 architecture and feature the new X2 Super Core, with the A710 and A510 cores providing efficient support. While the Cortex-A78 core is still the latest, enthusiasts will be happy to finally say goodbye to ARM’s four-year-old Cortex-A55 core.

The Snapdragon 898 and Dimensity 2000 look the same on the CPU side, but the MediaTek chip should offer better performance thanks to its higher frequency. They will differ on the GPU side, however, and this could be where the real battle lies, with Qualcomm’s Adreno GPU traditionally having the edge over ARM’s Mali.

Both the Dimensity 2000 and Snapdragon 898 are expected to hit the market in late 2021. Phones with these CPUs will hit the market at the end of the year or early 2022.
