MediaTek has officially announced its latest flagship chipset — the Dimensity 9000 5G aimed to enhance computing performance, gaming, imaging, multimedia, and connectivity. This chipset might really rival Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
The Dimensity 9000 5G is the first of its kind to be built on TSMC’s 4nm process while also using a new Armv9 architecture. The CPU comes with eight cores featuring one Cortex-X2 core, three Cortex-A710 cores, and four Cortex-A510 cores while the GPU is a 10-core Arm Mali-G710.
There’s also MediaTek’s fifth-generation APU with six cores for AI processing — four performance cores and two flexible cores in which you’ll get 4x more power compared to its predecessor.
Phones that use this chip will be able to support up to 144Hz on WQHD+ displays or 180Hz on FHD+ displays. In terms of imaging, its 18-bit HDR Image Signal Processor (ISP) can simultaneously record 4K HDR videos from three cameras and guarantee you quality low light recordings with its “Super Night Video Recording”.
Moreover, the ISP can also support camera sensors of up to a whopping 320MP.
With the Arm Mali-G710, the company claims that you’ll get a 35% increase in performance and 60% for power efficiency. There’s also a raytracing SDK that game developers can make use of to bring their game graphics to the next level if they want to.
Other than that, the chip offers onboard 5G modem along with support for Bluetooth 5.3 and Wi-Fi 6E.
Smartphones running on the Dimensity 9000 5G chipset are set to arrive around Q1 2022 and brands that will use this SoC include:
So far, the phones confirmed to be adopting this SoC is the OPPO Find X series and the Redmi K50 series.
