A side by side comparison of the GeekBench results of MediaTek MT6893, Dimensity 1000+, and Snapdragon 865 shows some interesting results. While the MediaTek MT6893 and Snapdragon 865 SoC are on the same level, the Dimensity 1000+ is well behind them. Although the manufacturing process of MediaTek MT6893 (6nm) is ahead of Snapdragon 865 (7nm), the latter still managed to edge the former in the multi-core test. However, the final version of MediaTek MT6893 will probably beat the Snapdragon 865 SoC.
In the single-core test, while MT6893 and SD865 score 886 points, Dimensity 1000+ scores 765 points. However, in the multi-core test, MT6893, SD865, and Dimensity 1000+ scores 2948, 3104, and 2874 respectively.
According to a Geekbench test, this chip has 8 cores. However, we do not know much about this chip for now. According to recent reports, MediaTek announced last week that it will release a 5G chip with a 6nm process technology. The model of this 5G chip is MT689X (the last digit is not yet clear). This chip adopts ARM Cortex-A78 core design, the highest frequency of the main core is 3.0GHz, and it will be manufactured by TSMC 6nm. The CPU frequency and architecture of MT689X are the same as Samsung Exynos 1080.
We can see that MediaTek is really doing all it can to catch up with Qualcomm. Although it is not yet at Qualcomm’s level, it appears to be closing the gap with the advent of 5G. In the flagship segment, MediaTek used to be nowhere near Qualcomm. This is not the case presently.
MediaTek may be working on more than one chip
Nevertheless, @DigitalChatStation claims that the MT6893 prototype parameters are a 2.8Ghz± A78+3*2.6Ghz± A78+2.0Ghz± A55+G77MC9, the frequency is basically the same as Exynos 1080. In addition, the chip may have an overclocked version.
The Samsung Exynos 1080 processor uses Samsung’s latest 5nm process. However, it also uses a 2.8GHz Cortex-A78 core. In addition to the three high-performance 2.6GHz Cortex-A78 cores, and four efficient 2.0GHz Cortex- A55 core composition.
According to previous reports, the MT689X should be released before the end of this year. Of course, a Chinese manufacturer will likely launch this chip. The front runner for this is Redmi.
It is worth mentioning that @DigitalChatStation previously stated that MediaTek is preparing two new chip products. The models are MT6893 and MT6891. So the above-mentioned running sub-model and MediaTek’s official announcement model may not be the same chip.
