MediaTek has recently unveiled its latest flagship 5G processor, the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 5G.
The Dimensity 9000 5G is the world’s first TSMC chip built on the 4nm process with improved performance and power efficiency. It uses the new Armv9 architecture CPUs boasting 1x Cortex-X2 Ultra-Core clocked at 3.05GHz + 3x Cortex-A710 Super-Cores clocked at 2.85GHz + 4x Cortex-A510 Efficiency Cores. For graphics, it is equipped with a new Mali-G710 GPU with 10-cores, with the first raytracing SDK using Vulkan for Android, along with MediaTek’s fifth-generation APU with six total cores for AI processing.
The new APU (AI Processing Unit) supports up to four times better performance versus the last generation and leads performance on ETHZ, an AI benchmark test. In addition, the company claims the Dimensity 9000 5G outperforms the Google Tensor by 16% in AI performance.
Its ISP can capture 4K HDR video on three cameras simultaneously, and by going maximum, it is claimed to process up to 270 frames per second and output 18-bit 4K HDR video. Aside from that, the new ISP can support up to 320-megapixel cameras, and 8K video encoding and decoding, along with 8K AV1 video playback.
The chip supports up to a 144hz WQHD+ resolution or 180Hz FHD+ displays with HDR10+ adaptive, LPDDR5X 7,500 Mbps RAM support, and it is the world’s-first smartphone chip to include Bluetooth 5.3. Moreover, for connectivity, it also supports Wi-Fi 6E 2×2, a new Beidou III-B1C GNSS standard, and Wireless Stereo Audio.
The MediaTek Dimensity 9000 5G chipset will arrive in smartphones in late Q1 2022.
