MediaTek announced the Dimensity 9000+, an enhancement to the company’s top-of-the-line 5G smartphone chipset. This new high-end offering outperforms the Dimensity 9000 in terms of performance, making the next generation of flagship smartphones even more powerful and efficient.
The new Dimensity 9000+ system-on-chip (SoC) combines Arm’s v9 CPU architecture with a 4nm octa-core process, combining one ultra-Cortex-X2 core running at up to 3.2GHz (compared to 3.05GHz with the Dimensity 9000), three super Cortex-A710 cores, and four efficiency Cortex-A510 cores.
The advanced CPU architecture and Arm Mali-G710 MC10 graphics processor built into the new chipset improve CPU performance by more than 5% and GPU performance by more than 10%.
“Building on the success of our first flagship 5G chipset, the Dimensity 9000+ ensures that device makers always have access to the most advanced high-performance features and the latest mobile technologies, making it possible for their top-tier smartphones to stand out,” said Dr. Yenchi Lee, Deputy General Manager of MediaTek’s Wireless Communications Business Unit. “With a suite of top-tier AI, gaming, multimedia, imaging and connectivity features, the Dimensity 9000+ delivers faster gameplay, seamless streaming and an all-around better user experience.”
The Dimensity 9000+ is the latest addition to the Dimensity 9000 series of flagship smartphone chipsets, which are designed to meet the mobile market’s growing bandwidth demands. The integrated LPDDR5X memory supports an L3 CPU cache of 8MB and a system cache of 6MB. Furthermore, the chipset incorporates MediaTek’s fifth generation Application Processor Unit (APU 5.0) for powerful AI computing capabilities in a low-power design.
Key features of the MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ include:
- MediaTek Imagiq 790: The flagship 18-bit HDR-ISP supports 320MP, as well as simultaneous triple camera 18-bit HDR video recording. The powerful 9Gpixel/s ISP also supports 4K HDR Video + AI noise reduction that enables the highest quality results even in extreme low-light scenarios.
- Leading 3GPP Release-16 5G Modem: The integrated 5G modem amplifies sub-6GHz performance up to 7Gbps downlink using 3CC Carrier Aggregation (300MHz) and supports R16 UL enhancement. The Dimensity 9000+ also integrates 5G/4G Dual SIM Dual Active support and MediaTek’s 5G UltraSave 2.0 power-saving enhancement suite for improved efficiency.
- MediaTek MiraVision 790: The Dimensity 9000+ supports the latest 144Hz WQHD+ displays or super-fast 180Hz FullHD+ displays, while optimizing power efficiency with MediaTek’s Intelligent Display Sync 2.0 technology. Furthermore, MediaTek’s latest Wi-Fi Display technology can support up to 4K60 HDR10+ video.
- Wi-Fi 6E, New GNSS with Beidou III-B1C and New Bluetooth 5.3: Smartphone users can enjoy seamless connectivity thanks to the chip’s support for the latest Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GNSS standards.
Smartphones powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ are expected to be released in Q3 2022.
