MediaTek announced the launch of Dimensity 9000+ chipset for supplying to the makers of 5G smartphones.
The Dimensity 9000+ system-on-chip (SoC) integrates Arm’s v9 CPU architecture with a 4nm octa-core 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 Cortex-A510 cores.
The advanced CPU architecture and Arm Mali-G710 MC10 graphics processor built into the new chipset provide more than a 5 percent boost in CPU performance and more than 10 percent improvement in GPU performance.
“With a suite of top-tier AI, gaming, multimedia, imaging and connectivity features, the Dimensity 9000+ delivers faster gameplay, seamless streaming and an all-around better user experience,” Yenchi Lee, Deputy General Manager of MediaTek’s Wireless Communications Business Unit, said.
The integrated LPDDR5X supports 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 in a power-efficient design.
The chipset major said smartphones powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ are expected to be released in Q3 2022.
