MediaTek shows its teeth to Qualcomm: its Dimensity 9000 wants to compete with the most powerful Snapdragon

MediaTek is showing Qualcomm its teeth: its Dimensity 9000 wants to compete with the most powerful Snapdragon, Until now, MediaTek has always been one step below Qualcomm in terms of its SoCs, which despite being very popular were not usually able to compete with the most powerful of this manufacturer. That is precisely what they want me to change with the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 . The new SoC was born with the ambition to go beyond what its predecessors achieved and poses an assault on future high-end smartphones. Their arguments? Its 4 nanometer lithography , its eight cores with frequencies up to 3 GHz and support for hypothetical (attention) cameras 320 Mpixels. Dimensity gets bigger With the Dimensity MediaTek family has taken an important step when it comes to competing with other semiconductor manufacturers in their SoC for the most ambitious mobiles of each season. This release goes even further, and theoretically will allow you to deal with the best of Qualcomm, Samsung or Huawei . For this MediaTek claims to have a chip ready to “take computing to the next level.” In this SoC we have a unique combination of ARMv9 cores for its CPU: a Cortex-X2 core to 3, 05 GHz, three Cortex-A 710 at 2, 85 GHz and four Cortex-A 510 at 1.8 GHz . That CPU is accompanied by an Arm Mali-G GPU 710 MC 10 which according to the manufacturer is a 20% more powerful than the previous version and than with its 10 cores will allow you to manage Full HD + screens with refresh rates of 180 Hz. It is in fact a graphics chip capable of supporting raytracing in mobile video games. There are other features Disposables, such as its six-core APU for processing artificial intelligence tasks or for example that aforementioned support for cameras with hypothetical 320 Mpixels thanks to ISP Imagiq Gen 7 from 18 bits. Connectivity is another of its strengths: it supports 5G networks both SA and NSA, per or also Bluetooth 5.3 , the new version of the standard, or Wi-Fi 6E. Now it remains to be seen which manufacturers choose it as the “heart” of their future high-end mobiles, but of course the latest MediaTek chip is promising. Via | 9000 XDA-Developers
