MediaTek launches its flagship Dimensity 9000 processor

MediaTek has announced its latest processor, Dimensity 9000, which is the company's best performance chip, and it seems that it will be able to compete with the best chipsets from more popular competitors such as Qualcomm and Samsung.

However, the previous Dimensity flagship chip (like last year's Dimensity 1000) isn't as powerful as Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888 or Samsung's Exynos 2100. But the new Dimensity 9000 is the main processor for the major Android phones that will be on the market in 2022. .

The new Dimensity 9000 processor is the first mobile chip built using TSMC's 4nm process and also uses Arm's new v9 architecture.

This is also the first processor announcement to use Arm's new core design:

  •     Cortex-X2 performance core with a main frequency of 3.05 GHz.
  •     The main frequency of the three Cortex-A710 cores is 2.85 GHz.
  •     Four Cortex A510 cores clocked at 1.8GHz.

Meanwhile, the GPU is the arm of 10 Mali-G710 cores and a fifth-generation MediaTek APU with 6 AI cores. The company said its performance and fuel efficiency were four times that of the previous generation.

The company claims that its new 7th generation 18-bit Imagiq image signal processor is the world's first chip capable of capturing 320MP images. This assumes that your phone has a sensor that can take pictures at this resolution. The image signal processor can also transmit data at a speed of 9 Gbps.

Dimensity 9000 provides an integrated 5G modem and supports 3GPP version 16. It should be noted that the new chip only supports less than 6 GHz and there is no waveform standard one millimeter faster, so it still lags behind the competition.

MediaTek competes with Qualcomm Snapdragon chips

The company said that the Dimensity 9000 will be the first smartphone processor to support Bluetooth 5.3 and Wi-Fi 6E.

MediaTek may not be the only one using the latest ARM technology. Qualcomm is widely expected to announce the successor to the Snapdragon 888 chipset at the annual Snapdragon Technology Summit on November 30.

MediaTek processors have always been left out of the big Android devices. But Dimensity 9000 makes it clear that it is looking for competition and is far behind.
