The famous Taiwan-based chip-maker, MediaTek launches the Dimensity 9000 processor, and it carries first in most places. It is the world’s first TSMC 4nm 5G Mobile SoC, first Cortex-X2, first Mali-G710, first to support Bluetooth v5.3, and also the first LPDDR5x 7500Mbps.
MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chipset was officially launched during MediaTek’s ongoing Summit conference. It comes with a new Mali-G710 GPU with 10-cores and a new raytracing SDK for developers that brings new visual improvements to get closer to PC-level graphics performance.
Compared to the former generation, the Mali-G710 10-core GPU promises 35% better performance and 60% better power efficiency. MediaTek said the 5th gen AI processing unit (APU) is 4 times more power-efficient than its predecessor.
Next up is the Bluetooth v5.3 and this is the first time it is available on smartphone chips. Another connectivity is the Wi-Fi 6E 2×2, Bluetooth Audio LE-ready with “Dual-Link True Wireless Stereo Audio, and it supports a new Beidou III-B1C GNSS standard.
It supports LPDDR5x RAM speeds of up to 7500Mbps in smartphones. It also has 14MB of cache, which Mediatek says improves performance by 7% and bandwidth consumption by 25% versus just 8MB of cache.
The new MediaTek Dimensity 9000 processor is a 5nm chipset and it features a 1x ARM Cortex-X2 CPU clocked at 3.05GHz, 3x Cortex-A710 CPU clocked at 2.85GHz, and 4x Cortex-A510 CPU cores clocks at 1.8GHz.
MediaTek boasts that the Dimensity 9000 chips offer better a 35% performance leap over Snapdragon 888 processor and also offer overs 37% better efficiency. During the Geekbench performance, it scored similarly to the “2021 flagship” probably, Apple’s latest A15 Bionic.
The Dimensity 9000’s ISP (Image Signal Processor) captures 4K HDR video from three cameras simultaneously, and it is worthy to note that the Imagiq790 18-bit ISP with HDR is the world’s first to support 320MP sensors.
It has a triple-camera operation that supports 32+32+32MP sensor operation, capable of simultaneously recording 4K HDR video from three cameras. It has processing speeds of up to 9 gigapixels per second, which is 2x better than Dimensity 1200.
The MediaTek Dimensity 9000 also has a video night mode called “Super Night Video Recording”. The modem supports 3CC carrier aggregation with up to 300MHz of Sub-6 bandwidth for download speeds of up to 7Gbps. It will be available in the first quarter of 2022.
