The new MediaTek SoC is the new flagship processor, which will be found in several premium smartphones later this year. As the name suggests, the Dimensity 9000+ SoC is an improved version of the 9000 SoC.
The chipset comes with performance boosts while focusing on improving its power efficiency. MediaTek’s Dimensity 9000+ is integrated into ARM’s v9 CPU architecture. It is based on a 4nm fabrication process. Let’s take a look at the MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ SoC specifications, features and other details announced.
MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ SoC is the New Flagship SoC
MediaTek has unveiled the new Dimensity 9000+ SoC. The chipset will replace the Dimensity 9000 as the company’s flagship chipset. Based on a 4nm process, the SoC has one Cortex-X2 core clocked at 3.2GHz. There are three high-performance Cortex-A710 cores and four Cortex-A510 efficiency cores. MediaTek has integrated ARM’s Mali-G710 GPU for graphics.
The chipset comes with an improved Imagiq 790 Image Signal Processor (ISP) with support for 18-bit HDR video recording. Users can record the 18-bit HDR video from three cameras at the same time. The chipset also supports a 320MP camera sensor along with 4K HDR recording. It can also record videos in 8K at 24fps.
