A new leak has confirmed that the MediaTek Dimensity 2000 and Snapdragon 898 will both use ARM's new V9 architecture. This confirms the presence of X2 and Cortex-A710 cores on the upcoming flagship chipsets. Enthusiasts will also be glad to see the introduction of Cortex-A510 cores over the aging Cortex-A55 cores on current SoCs.

While the Dimensity 1200 and Snapdragon 778G compete in prices for the mid-range segment, MediaTek is set to release its first true flagship SoC in a while, the Dimensity 2000, and it will compete against Qualcomm's Snapdragon 898 on all fronts. A new leak has now provided even more details about the two chipsets.

According to Chinese leaker Digital Chat Station, both the Snapdragon 898 and the MediaTek Dimensity 2000 will feature ARM's new Cortex-A710 and Cortex-A510 cores. Both chipsets will, of course, be built on ARM's V9 architecture and will feature the new X2 super cores, with A710 and A510 cores providing efficient support. While Cortex-A78 cores are still recent, enthusiasts will be glad to finally say farewell to ARM's four-year-old Cortex-A55 cores.

As we previously covered, the Snapdragon 898 and Dimensity 2000 will look identical on the CPU side, although the MediaTek chip should have slightly better performance due to its higher clocks. They'll differ on the GPU end, though, and that's likely to be where the real battle is fought, with Qualcomm's Adreno traditionally having an edge over ARM's Mali.

Buy the OnePlus 9 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.
