Today, MediaTek officially released a new generation flagship processor, Dimensity 9000. This chip is a huge leap from its predecessor in terms of specifications. The Dimensity 9000 has at least 10 world firsts including being the world’s first TSMC 4nm. It is also the world’s first chip with a Cortex-X2 CPU core, Mali-G710 GPU, Bluetooth 5.3, and so on. Following the launch of the Dimensity 9000, there are reports that its “younger sibling” will follow soon. According to reports, MediaTek will go further next year. The company is preparing a new generation of sub-flagship chips, using TSMC’s 5nm process. This processor will most likely be the Dimensity 7000 SoC.
According to reports, the Dimensity 7000 is currently in testing and this chip will be a 5nm processor. Unfortunately, this is about all we know regarding this processor. The MediaTek Dimensity family started with TSMC’s 7nm process. The Dimensity 1200, Dimensity 1100, Dimensity 920, Dimensity 900, and Dimensity 810 have all been upgraded to TSMC’s 6nm process.
Dimensity 9000 flagship processor
The Dimensity 9000 chip uses TSMC’s 4nm process + Armv9 architecture combination and has a high-performing Cortex-X2 super-large core. In addition, it has 3 Arm Cortex-A710 large cores (frequency 2.85GHz) and 4 Arm Cortex-A510 energy efficiency cores. This chip also supports LPDDR5X memory and the speed can reach 7500Mbps.
Dimensity 9000 adopts a flagship 18-bit HDR-ISP image signal processor. This technology can shoot HDR video with three cameras at the same time. Furthermore, the chip has a low power consumption performance. This chip comes with a high-performance ISP processing speed of up to 9 billion pixels/sec. It also supports triple exposure for triple cameras as well as up to 320MP cameras.
In terms of Al, Dimensity 9000 uses MediaTek’s fifth-generation Al processor APU. This is 4 times more energy-efficient than the previous generation. It can provide a high-efficiency AI experience for shooting, gaming, video, and other applications.
In terms of games, Dimensity 9000 uses Arm Mali-G710 graphics processor and launched a mobile ray tracing SDK kit. This includes Arm Mali-G710 ten-core GPU, mobile ray-tracing graphics rendering technology, support 180Hz FHD+ display.
In addition, Dimensity 9000 has a built-in M80 5G modem, which complies with the new generation of 3GPP R16 5G standards. It also supports Sub-6GHz 5G full-band network, which can greatly reduce communication power consumption while increasing network speed.
In terms of wireless network and audio technology, Dimensity 9000 supports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies with lower latency, including Bluetooth 5.3, Wi-Fi6E 2×2 MIMO, the upcoming Bluetooth LEAudio (dual-link true wireless stereo support) as well as the new Beidou III-B1C GNSS.
