Benchmarks suggest Dimensity 9000 is no pushover for Qualcomm


Mediatek posted a video with benchmarks for the Dimensity 9000. It suggests that the Mediatek chip can beat the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in multi-core CPU tasks. However, Qualcomm’s chipset appears to be significantly faster in GPU benchmarks.

Mediatek and Qualcomm have both unveiled their flagship processors for 2022, and it looks like the two chipsets are equally capable on paper. Qualcomm revealed Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 benchmarks via journalists at the chipset launch, and Mediatek has now released a video showing the benchmark performance of the Dimensity 9000.

The video, posted on Mediatek’s Weibo account, shows the performance of a Dimensity 9000 phone in Antutu, Geekbench 5.1, GFXBench Manhattan 3.0 and more. Check it out below.

However, we recommend that you take these results with a grain of salt. First, it’s a Mediatek video with testing supposedly done by the company rather than through a third party, and testing the company has chosen. It’s also unclear if the company ran the tests multiple times, which would help with accuracy and potentially reveal any potential issues with the limitation. It is also unknown if the test device was running in a performance mode that compromises battery life due to horsepower.

In any case, the tests show an Antutu v9 score of 1,017,488 points compared to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1’s 1,031,302 points reported by Hot Hardware (albeit for Antutu v8).

The Mediatek video also shows the Geekbench scores of the Dimensity 9000 with Geekbench 5.1. The chipset delivers a single-core score of 1,273 and a multi-core score of 4,324 compared to the Snapdragon chip’s reported scores of 1,233 and 3,740 respectively (albeit in Geekbench 5).

Mediatek’s chipset also delivered 238 fps in the GFXBench Manhattan 3.0 off-screen test, compared to the Snapdragon SoC reported 267 fps score.

What does this mean?

Mediatek’s video suggests that the two SoCs are equally tuned for single-core CPU workloads, but the Dimensity 9000 has a significant advantage in multi-core scores. We suspect that the higher-clocked Cortex-A710 medium cores of the Mediatek chip and Qualcomm’s use of the merged core architecture for the Cortex-A510 small cores helped the Taiwanese company.

The clip suggests Qualcomm has an ever-small margin in a mixed workload like Antutu, but it’s narrow enough here to see the pendulum swing by phone. Qualcomm’s big win looks set to come in the GPU department, according to GFXBench. But the Dimensity 9000’s results in this particular test would still outperform the iPhone 13 Pro and Snapdragon 888 phones.

Again, you should take the Mediatek video with a grain of salt for the reasons mentioned above, and you should also take the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 benchmarks with some skepticism as the reference device isn’t actually a commercial phone. The real test comes when real phones are available for testing. But it does suggest that Qualcomm and Mediatek are closer than they have been in several years.
