To recall, MediaTek had released similar results from the AnTuTu benchmark and Geekbench 5 benchmark earlier last month.
Do keep in mind that the Exynos 2200 and the Dimensity 9000 chipsets are currently not officially available in the market. Due to this, the actual performance of these two may differ when checked in real life. On the other hand, smartphones powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 are already available in the market, and the numbers showcased in the leak are representative of the real numbers.
We expect smartphones powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chipset to start launching early next month. Whereas, Samsung is expected to launch its Galaxy S22 series powered by the Exynos 2200 on February 9. It remains to be seen how both the Dimensity 9000 and the Exynos 2200 chipset will stack against the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset in real life.
