The top-tier SoCs from MediaTek, Qualcomm and Samsung are already official, with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 already being powering some phones out in the wild, but we are yet to see how the other two perform in real life. Now we have some preliminary benchmarks and by the looks of it, the Dimensity 9000 could be the new CPU king of the Android market.
The famous tipster Ice Universe shared some Geekbench 5 results on Twitter showing the Dimensity 9000 outpacing the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and the Exynos 2200 in both multi-threaded and single-threaded workloads. We’ve seen similar results from the compound AnTuTu test and Geekbench 5 benchmark about a month ago.
It’s important to note that the Exynos 2200 and the Dimensity 9000 are not officially out yet so the actual performance of these two SoCs may still differ. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, on the other hand, is already powering up the Xiaomi 12 and 12 Pro so the results above should be more representative.
