MediaTek Launches New Dimensity 9000+ Flagship Telephone Chip

Chipset firm MediaTek has unveiled its newest flagship smartphone silicon: the Dimensity 9000+. 

In case the identify doesn’t give it away, that is positioned as an improve to the Dimensity 9000 flagship the corporate launched final November. Like that chip, that is high-end {hardware} meant for premium telephones solely. 

This isn’t a real successor – count on that to reach a while in direction of the top of the 12 months – however a half-step improve, with enhancements made to the identical base 4nm {hardware}.  

The important thing change is an improve to the CPU’s Cortex-X2 prime core, which runs at 3.2GHz within the 9000 Professional – up from 3.05GHz within the common 9000 – although the remaining seven CPU cores are unchanged from the earlier iteration, leading to an general efficiency enchancment of round 5%.

The GPU has had an improve too. The 9000+ nonetheless makes use of a Mali-G710 chip, however MediaTek says it’s made tweaks to ship a 10% increase in graphics efficiency. 

These may not sound like dramatic positive factors, however they’re sufficient to carry the 9000+ proper in keeping with rival Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, itself introduced virtually precisely a month in the past. That chip additionally upgraded to a 3.2GHz clock pace on its prime CPU core, and boasts 10% GPU positive factors together with some energy effectivity enhancements. 

As all the time, the large query is which telephones will probably be powered by the Dimensity 9000+. Whereas Qualcomm has already introduced the 8+ Gen 1 will seem in telephones from Asus, OnePlus, Xiaomi, and extra, MediaTek normally waits a couple of weeks to announce OEM companions, so there are not any telephones or producers confirmed to date – although the corporate has confirmed the primary handsets ought to arrive in Q3 2022, aka July-September.

Regardless of wonderful efficiency ends in benchmarks, the Dimensity 9000 has suffered from surprisingly restricted uptake to date. It might probably solely be discovered within the Honor 70 Professional+, the Redmi Okay50 Professional, and the Vivo X80, together with particular Dimensity editions of the Vivo X80 Professional and Oppo Discover X5 Professional. Few of these have launched exterior of China nevertheless, and none to date in Europe or the US. 

The 9000+ might nicely be much more area of interest. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon ‘+’ chips are typically discovered principally in gaming-focussed smartphones the place the motivation to pack absolutely the newest chipset is extra highly effective, and it’s doubtless the identical will probably be true right here.

Whether or not any of these telephones make it to the West is one other matter although. A widespread US launch is particularly unlikely, as whereas the Dimensity 9000+ options 5G networking, that doesn’t embody help for the mmWave customary that’s demanded by carriers within the States. MediaTek first launched mmWave help within the extra inexpensive Dimensity 1050 chip, which it launched final month, however we’ll have to attend for the following technology to see the complete unfold of 5G indicators supported by a Dimensity flagship.
