Dimensity 8100 doesn't use extreme cores so expect that it will never overheat.

That 4 TDP got my attention, the 9000 is somehow older here, lol so the stability issues might have been solved by now.

I can't believe people are saying Dimensity 8100 is better than 9000. Like 9000 is the king of the beasts

Dimensity 8100 is better in because is not throttling much compare to Dimensity 9000. And it outperforms the Dimensity 9000 in FPS. Overall Dimensity 8100 is better overall in Throttling and FPS. Dimensity 8100 is Optimize The Chipset King in 2022.

Just compare the energy consumption, heat generation, and performance stability of the two, and you will see that D8100 is better! While their performance difference is just a little over 10%.
