Currently, Oppo has an NPU which is called MariSilicon X. The NPU aids the main chipset in processing good quality images but Oppo having its own processor will allow the company to customize and make the chipset even better to compete with rivals. Currently, Samsung, Apple, and Google use their own custom SoCs on their smartphones. While Samsung has the Exynos range, Apple has A-series and Google has Tensor.

Reports claim that Oppo’s own chipset will not match the performance of Qualcomm or MediaTek Processors but still be sufficient for their own devices. First, oppo will use its chipset on lower-end devices and then move to higher flagship ones slowly. For now, Oppo uses processors from Qualcomm and MediaTek both.
