MediaTek is finally set to deliver a bona fide flagship chipset in the form of the Dimensity 2000. The Dimensity 2000 will do battle with the Snapdragon 898 and Exynos 2200 and could even come out on top efficiency-wise, thanks to TSMC's 4 nm manufacturing process.

Last week, word surfaced indicating MediaTek's plans to release the Dimensity 2000, an SoC expected to do battle with Qualcomm's upcoming Snapdragon 898 while having the advantage of lower cost. It appears the Dimensity 2000 could also trounce the Snapdragon 898 in another major aspect.

Going by a new report, the Dimensity 2000 will be built on MediaTek's 4 nm node. This isn't brand new information, either, as it corroborates our report from July about MediaTek's plan to beat Qualcomm to the punch by using a world-first 4 nm manufacturing process built by TSMC. The chipset in question looks set to be the Dimensity 2000.

This would be an impressive move by MediaTek, as TSMC's nodes have had a solid advantage over Samsung's for a while now. The Snapdragon 888 and Exynos 2100, for example, were both built on Samsung's 5 nm process and suffered from lackluster efficiency. TSMC's fabs have been better in that regard recently, and that advantage can be expected to carry over to the 4 nm process.

This would likely mean that the Dimensity 2000 offers better efficiency than the Snapdragon 898 and the Exynos 2200—both of which are expected to be built on Samsung's new 4 nm process—while delivering equal CPU performance. The MediaTek chipset is expected to be slightly worse in the GPU department, however.

Buy the Dimensity 1200-powered Realme GT Neo 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.
