Samsung Plans to Switch to MediaTek in the High End

It seems that the new beast of MediaTek made Samsung think. Yesterday, MediaTek launched its new processor top of the range star for the 2023 season. This chip is the MediaTek dimension 9000, a processor manufactured in 4 nm by TSMC which could have one of the best architectures on the market in terms of efficiency and performance. This new high-end processor could prompt Samsung to consider using it in a smartphone summit in 2023.

MediaTek is not what it used to be in the high end


Over the past two years, MediaTek has demonstrated that it has sufficient resources to deal with Qualcomm, Kirin and Exynos. Processors like the Dimensity 1200 are at the top of the table, offer more attractive prices for manufacturers and have very interesting performance.

Throughout 2020 MediaTek sold more mobile processors What QualcommTherefore, more and more manufacturers and models trust the company to provide their smartphones with good performance. In 2023, we got to see how MediaTek manages to enter the top of the line premium from Samsung.

MediaTek Dimensity 9000, the new high-end beast


The new Dimensity 9000 chip is manufactured in 4nm by TSMC. According to experts, the manufacturing process of this company is more advanced and efficient than that of Samsung itself. For this reason, the Korean company reportedly considered using the processor in one of its mobile stars of 2023.

The distribution of processor cores is as follows: 1 Cortex-X2 core at 3.05 GHz, 3 Cortex-A710 cores at 2.85 GHz and 4 Cortex-A510 cores at 1.8 GHz. The GPU for graphics is at charging an ARM Mali-G710 with 10 cores at 810 MHz. This configuration and its new architecture assimilates it, on paper, to the Apple A15 Bionic.

Supports 4K recording up to 120 fps, displays up to 180Hz refresh rate, cameras up to 320 MP, 8K videos and the most advanced Wi-Fi and data network protocols. MediaTek created a real beast that might surprise other chipmakers in 2023.

If Samsung will use it MediaTek dimension 9000 whether or not is something we don’t know at the moment.
