Two notable tipsters have come up to kind of back the hearsay that appeared a week ago stating MediaTek Dimensity 2000 SoC is using TSMC's 4nm node process. The two tipsters on Weibo have said nothing different, though they added that the samples have already been handed out to the suppliers for internal testing.

MediaTek is reportedly developing a new chipset called Dimensity 2000. The details on the same are pretty scarce at the moment but if the available information is to be believed, the chipset might be able to deliver performance on par with the upcoming Snapdragon 898 processor.
As per a post found on Weibo (via Sparrownews), MediaTek Dimensity 2000 SoC will use the TSMC’s 4nm process and adopt the ARM V9 architecture. While the post doesn’t bring more details to the table, it is not hard to assume a few things about the alleged chipset.
Being fabricated on the 4nm process suggests a lot about the chipset, including its prowess and ability to consume less power.
Speaking of the ARM v9 architecture, it is the latest solution to future needs. It has been introduced after a decade over the v8 architecture and includes so many improvements. The main focus of Version 9 is on security and machine learning. The architecture is slated not only to be powerful but also flexible and versatile enough for applications requiring ML.
ARM believes the new capabilities in v9 architecture will “accelerate the move from general-purpose to more specialized computer across every application as AI, the Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G gain momentum globally.”
As per some previous reports, the alleged MediaTek Dimensity 2000 will also have a stronger GPU that will offer a better power consumption. Well, one more piece of information that the Weibo post was able to put out is that the alleged chipset will launch this fall.
As we mentioned above, there is not enough information available on the alleged Dimensity 2000 chipset for now. So, we will wait to gain more insights into it.
