MediaTek Dimensity 9000 - MediaTek has come a long way. And they now have a flagship chipset. The Dimensity 9000 is the world’s first chip built on TSMC’s 4nm process. And it is set to compete with Qualcomm’s and Samsung’s upcoming flagship chipsets.

Here’s one of my favourite Youtube channels explaining everything.
And what’s on Techish?
