MediaTek unveils Dimensity 9000+ processor to take on Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, Exynos 2200


Last updated: June 22nd, 2022 at 06:23 UTC+02:00

MediaTek has unveiled a new flagship smartphone chipset, the Dimensity 9000+. It is a slight upgrade over the Dimensity 9000 that was launched a few months ago. Plus, it is MediaTek’s answer to the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 that was announced a few weeks ago. It should perform better than the Exynos 2200.

The Dimensity 9000+ is made using TSMC’s 4nm fabrication process. It offers higher clock speeds for the CPU and the GPU compared to the vanilla Dimensity 9000. It has one Cortex-X2 CPU core clocked at 3.2GHz, three Cortex-A710 CPU cores clocked at 2.85GHz, and four Cortex-A510 CPU cores clocked at 1.8GHz. The Mali-G710 MC10 GPU can drive Full HD+ displays at 180Hz and QHD+ screens at 144Hz.

Dimensity 9000+ brings slightly faster CPU, GPU performance

MediaTek says there’s a 5% CPU performance uplift and 10% better GPU performance. It has 8MB of L3 cache, 6MB system-level cache, and support for LPDDR5X RAM. Similar to most other high-end chips, it supports UFS 3.1 storage. The Imagiq 790 ISP supports up to 320MP camera sensors and 4K 60fps HDR10+ video recording.

The integrated 5G modem still lacks support for mmWave 5G, which was also the biggest drawback of the Dimensity 9000. With sub-6GHz 5G and advanced carrier aggregation, the Dimensity 9000+ tops out at 7Gbps download speeds. It has Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.3, dual-frequency GPS, NFC, and USB 3.1 Type-C.

MediaTek Dimensity 9000 Plus Features

Dr. Yenchi Lee, Deputy General Manager of MediaTek’s Wireless Communications Business Unit, said, “Building on the success of our first flagship 5G chipset, the Dimensity 9000+ ensures that device makers always have access to the most advanced high-performance features and the latest mobile technologies, making it possible for their top-tier smartphones to stand out.

Samsung might not release a mid-cycle refresh of its Exynos 2200

Samsung might not release a mid-cycle refresh of the Exynos 2200. The company might not use Exynos chipsets in Galaxy smartphones for the next two years. It is reported that the firm has created a dream team of 1,000+ engineers to build a custom high-end chip for the Galaxy S series, and the first such chip could debut with the Galaxy S25 in 2025.
