Qualcomm did it with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 and now MediaTek follows the same for its flagship chip, the Dimensity 9000. Building on the trend of enhancing their flagship chips midlife, MediaTek brings the Dimensity 9000+ chip to the market for flagship smartphones. What does the “Plus” add to the mix? Broadly, users should expect to see minor boosts in CPU and GPU performance. That’s it – the rest of the stuff remains largely unchanged. Phones with the Dimensity 9000+ are coming out in Q3 2022, which means in a few months.
The new Dimensity 9000+ SoC integrates the ARM v9 CPU architecture and is still based on the 4nm process, combining one ultra-Cortex-X2 core operating at up to 3.2GHz (compared to 3.05GHz with the Dimensity 9000) with three super Cortex-A710 cores and four efficiency Cortex-A510 cores. The new CPU architecture and ARM Mali-G710 MC10 GPU built into the new chipset provide more than a 5 percent boost in CPU performance and more than 10 percent improvement in GPU performance.
The Dimensity 9000+ retains the rest of the features from the vanilla Dimensity 9000 chipset. Hence, you are getting the same integrated LPDDR5X RAM with 8MB L3 CPU cache and 6MB of system cache. Additionally, the chipset integrates MediaTek’s fifth generation Application Processor Unit (APU 5.0) for powerful AI computing capabilities.
The Dimensity 9000+ also features the same old MediaTek Imagiq 790 18-bit HDR-ISP supports 320MP, as well as simultaneous triple camera 18-bit HDR video recording. The 9Gpixel/s ISP also supports 4K HDR Video + AI noise reduction that enables the highest quality results even in extreme low-light scenarios.
The chipset also has 3GPP Release-16 5G Modem that amplifies sub-6GHz performance up to 7Gbps downlink using 3CC Carrier Aggregation (300MHz) and supports R16 UL enhancement. The Dimensity 9000+ also integrates 5G/4G Dual SIM Dual Active support and MediaTek’s 5G UltraSave 2.0 power-saving enhancement suite for improved efficiency.
The Dimensity 9000+ supports the latest 144Hz WQHD+ displays or super-fast 180Hz Full HD+ displays, all while optimizing power efficiency with MediaTek’s Intelligent Display Sync 2.0 technology. MediaTek’s latest Wi-Fi Display technology can support up to 4K60 HDR10+ video. Connectivity options include the Wi-Fi 6E, New GNSS with Beidou III-B1C and Bluetooth 5.3.
