Oppo, Redmi, Vivo and Honor to use the Dimensity 9000 chipset for their 2022 flagships! Earlier today, MediaTek revealed complete details on its new chipset meant to power high-end Android flagship smartphones. The Dimensity 9000 is going up against the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 this year, as far as the specs and other details are concerned.
Smartphones using the Dimensity 9000 chipset will start coming out in the first quarter of 2022 from several brands, chief among which are from Redmi and Oppo. Oppo has confirmed using the Dimensity 9000 for its Find X4 flagship while it reserves the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 for the Find X4 Pro. Redmi will use this MediaTek chip on its Redmi K50 series, although the exact device name hasn't been revealed yet.
While the exact details on the phones is yet to be revealed, MediaTek has confirmed what's inside the chip. The Dimensity 9000 is a 4nm chipset similar to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. It is using the ARMv9 architecture and relies on an octa-core processor with the most powerful cores available in the market.
The octa-core CPU has one ultra Cortex-X2 core operating at up to 3.05GHz, three performance A710 cores operating at up to 2.85GHz, and four efficiency Cortex-A510 cores. With the integrated LPDDR5X supporting up to 7500Mbps, along with an 8MB L3 cache and 6MB system cache, the Dimensity 9000 is built for the massive bandwidth demands of the mobile market.
The Dimensity 9000 gets the ARM Mali-G710 MC10 GPU as well. “The HyperEngine 5.0 uses AI-acceleration to optimize graphics while reducing the GPU load, resulting in faster gameplay that looks better and is more power-efficient than ever. HyperEngine also integrates AI-VRS, the first AI-enhanced variable rate shading technology for smartphones, along with the industry’s first raytracing software development kit (SDK) using Vulkan for Android,” says MediaTek.
The chip can support up to 320MP cameras with its 18-bit HDR ISP. It can support 144Hz QuadHD+ display or 180Hz FullHD+ displays on flagships. For wireless connectivity, the Dimensity 9000 supports Wi-Fi 6E, GNSS with Beidou III-B1C and Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity.
Most importantly, phone designers will be able to customize the chip based on specific requirements.
