The MediaTek Dimensity 9000 and Dimensity 7000 are expected to topple Qualcomm's performance superiority in the Android space, thanks to impressive manufacturing nodes. At the moment, however, it appears Qualcomm still dominates, at least when running on Xiaomi's MIUI 13 software.

The upcoming MediaTek Dimensity 9000 and Dimensity 7000 have massive amounts of hype behind them, with public expectations currently leaning towards MediaTek finally offering better performance than Qualcomm's equivalent offerings. It appears, however, that those expectations may have to be tempered.

As revealed by leaker Digital Chat Station, the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 and Dimensity 7000 currently trail their counterparts, the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Snapdragon 870 respectively, in early tests. The leaker provides no hard numbers, so impossible to say what the performance gap between the SoCs currently is.

Interestingly, the source makes a point of saying that these tests were done running Xiaomi's MIUI 13 software. There's a significant possibility that the stated difference in performance only exists due to MIUI 13 just not being optimized for MediaTek's chipsets. From revealed clock speeds and core configurations, the Dimensity 9000 and Dimensity 7000 should both outperform the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Snapdragon 870 respectively—at least on the CPU end.

Buy the Poco F3 on Amazon.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
