Questionable MediaTek Dimensity 2000 AnTuTu listing showcases impeccable performance gains over the Dimensity 1200 and Snapdragon 888 Plus

An AnTuTu benchmark result showcasing what appears to be a MediaTek Dimensity 2000 SoC has surfaced online. It netted an overall score of 1,002,220, becoming the first-ever Android smartphone to do so. However, AnTuTu thinks the score could have been manipulated, so it's best to treat it with scepticism.

A steady stream of information about the MediaTek Dimensity 2000 has been trickling in over the past few weeks. For starters, we know that it will have an identical core configuration to the Exynos 2200 and Snapdragon 898. On paper, all three chipsets should perform identically, although the Exynos 2200 should have an advantage due to its objectively superior RDNA2-based GPU. Now, renowned leaker, Digital Chat Station has stumbled upon the Dimensity 2000 on AnTuTu.

The MediaTek Dimensity 2000 is effectively the first smartphone SoC to breach the one million mark on AnTuTu with its 1,002,220. According to our database, it essentially doubles up on the MediaTek Dimensity 1200, which maxes out at 540, 464 points. While there are better-performing Dimensity 1200 variants, the chipset's AnTuTu performance usually hovers around the 600,000 mark. We can attribute this meteoric rise in performance to the objectively faster Cortex X2, Cortex-A710 and Cortex-A510 cores.

The only other SoC to have a one million+ AnTuTu score is the Apple M1, but that doesn't count, given that it is earmarked for laptops and tablets. On the smartphone side of things, the Snapdragon 888 Plus-powered BlackShark 4S Pro sits on top of AnTuTu's charts with a score of 885,902. It isn't immediately clear which smartphone the Dimensity 2000 in question resides in, but the listing says that Vivo manufactured it.

That being said, we should take the MediaTek Dimensity 2000's AnTuTu showing with a pinch of salt. The attached screenshot warns us that the score is abnormally high, presumably because no other smartphone has gone that far. MediaTek has been caught cheating in benchmarks in the past as well, so it's best if we wait for more benchmark results to show up.

On the flip side, the Dimensity 2000 bears all the markings of a Qualcomm/Exynos killer. Phones running pre-production hardware usually underperform. If the Dimensity 2000 can pull off such results with unstable software, one can't help but imagine the performance once the chipset is out and about.
