MediaTek competes with Qualcomm’s mobile phone brand to launch two versions on the same model | Anue Juheng-Taiwan Stock News

Qualcomm (QCOM-US) today (1) launched its new flagship mobile phone chip Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. According to supply chain news, as MediaTek’s (2454-TW) Dimensity 9000 performance has been affirmed by mobile phone brands, it will appear in the flagship market for the first time. The brand factory intends to use MediaTek Dimensity 9000 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 respectively in the same model, and list them in different regions to directly compete head-to-head with sales.

This time the market compares the latest chips from Qualcomm and MediaTek. In terms of manufacturing process, although both are built with 4nm, they are OEMs by Samsung and TSMC (2330-TW) respectively. Because Samsung has produced 888 series for Qualcomm. With the overheating problem, the outside world believes that MediaTek has a chance to win slightly with the help of TSMC’s manufacturing process.

Various mobile phone brands have always regarded Qualcomm as the partner of their flagship model chips. However, due to the Samsung foundry for the 888 series last year, the mobile phone chips are prone to overheating problems, which makes it impossible to fully realize the actual situation due to Samsung’s production yield and other issues. Efficacy has aroused market discussion.

MediaTek has maintained a close cooperation relationship with TSMC since the launch of 5G chips. From the very first Dimensity 1000 series to the affordable 800 series, it has been favored by the market, and it has gradually reversed the past impression that the chip performance is inferior to Qualcomm. This year It also became the first chip to adopt TSMC’s 4nm process, hoping to attack the high-end market.

Xiaomi has announced today that it will be equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in the Xiaomi Mi 12 series. MediaTek has not yet announced a cooperation brand. The outside world will keep an eye on the competitive situation of the two major players.
