MediaTek on the Dimensity 9000: "There's only one company having heating issues and it's not us", plans to offer Windows on ARM SoCs in the near future

MediaTek seems to be pretty confident that the Dimensity 9000 will not have any of the throttling or heating issues reported with the Snapdragon 888. MediaTek representatives said that the Dimensity 9000 will offer power consumption advantages over the competition, and that the company is looking to eventually offer chipsets for Windows on ARM in the near future.

Recently, MediaTek announced the Dimensity 9000 — a flagship SoC that aims to take on the best of the what the Android world has to currently offer. We also just saw a leaked AnTuTu benchmark that puts the Dimensity 9000 on par with Qualcomm's upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. 

Apparently, it's not only about the raw performance of the chip that MediaTek is happy about. In an interview to Android Authority last week, MediaTek expressed confidence that the Dimensity 9000 will not throttle or heat like the Snapdragon 888. 

Speaking to Android Authority, MediaTek VP and GM of Marketing Finbarr Moynihan said,

I think it’s fairly well-understood that it didn’t deliver the experience that was promised or expected, right? I think what I would say is we’re very confident, and obviously we’re sampling this chip to our major customers and the feedback we’re getting is quite promising as well... 

When it comes to the device-to-device comparisons with what we think is going to be out there from our competitor, we believe we will have advantages in power consumption for flagships next year."

MediaTek Global PR Director Kevin Keating added,

There’s only one company having issues with heating right now. And it’s not us."

Of course, a lot also depends on how OEMs actually implement these chips in their phones and only independent testing will help verify these claims. We look forward to testing out Dimensity 9000-powered devices as and when they become available.

MediaTek is also confident that they have procured enough 4 nm capacity at TSMC to ensure consistent chip supply next year without running into shortages. The Dimensity 9000 will not be available in the US since it does not support mmWave 5G, but MediaTek is hoping to bring mmWave support to lower tier chipsets soon. 

Moynihan also emphasized that MediaTek wants to be in the Windows on ARM space, though the company sees it as a long-term goal than anything immediate. In fact, it is likely that the company is waiting for the current exclusivity deal between Microsoft and Qualcomm to expire before it can don the elbow grease with Windows on ARM. 

The representative also hinted about potential concerns with GPU drivers, software emulation, etc., which need to be addressed before MediaTek-powered laptops can see the light of the day.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
