As 2021 is nearing its end, we already have rumors about the upcoming powerful SoCs from major chipset makers for 2022. The chipset designer is rumored to launch the Dimensity 2000 SoC, and rumor has it that the company has lined up several clients already. Vivo is one of them, and it looks like one of its phones running the MediaTek Dimensity 2000 SoC has crossed 1 million AnTuTu benchmark points.
According to popular tipster IceUniverse, a Vivo phone with model number V2184 has scored 1,002,220 points on AnTuTu benchmarks. The device is powered by the MT6983 chipset, which is dubbed to be the Dimensity 2000. Apart from IceUniverse, a reliable leakster Digital Chat Station has also reported the same Dimensity 2000 AnTuTu benchmark score. However, AnTuTu itself is yet to confirm whether the score is legitimate or manipulated.
MediaTek Dimensity 2000 Beats Snapdragon 888 Plus
While the AnTuTu benchmark numbers for the Dimensity 2000 chipset are still suspicious, but if they’re true, then the upcoming flagship processor from MediaTek appears to clearly beat the Snapdragon 888 Plus. To those unaware, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 Plus has never scored beyond the 900,000 point mark on any device. If the scores are legitimate, MediaTek Dimensity 2000 will be the first chip to hit 7 figures.
According to Digital Chat Station, the AnTuTu benchmark was run on an upcoming Vivo phone. And as you can see in the attached screenshot, the score stands at 1,002,220. It’s the first time we see a mobile chip cross 1 million points and hit seven figures. It looks like Vivo will be the first company to launch a phone with the Dimensity 2000 chip.
We can expect the phones running this SoC to launch at the beginning of 2022. It will be worth seeing how the upcoming Qualcomm’s Snapdragon and Samsung’s Exynos chips will compete with the Dimensity 2000.
