Dimensity 1000, 1100 and 1200 chipsets provide great performance and good features like 5G connectivity, AV1 hardware decoding and support for high refresh screens. However, it has only been used by manufacturers of mid-range phones like OnePlus Nord 2 5G and OnePlus 11T.
The Taiwanese company now offers the Dimensity 9000 chipset, which has the potential to be a strong competitor. As for Samsung's Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 and Exynos 2200 chipsets, it's moving forward. general. The company has also opted for a CPU configuration similar to that of its competitors in future SoCs, which means that the new Dimensity chip will include a triple stack with an Arm Cortex core. -X2 "super" combines three high-performance Cortex-A710 cores and four energy-efficient Cortex-A510 cores. p>
Finbarr Moynihan, Vice President and General Manager of Marketing at MediaTek, explained that the new GPU also supports software-based packet tracing as well as packet tracing via Vulkan for Android. Machine learning tasks will also be much faster on The new chipset, with performance five times higher than the power efficiency possible with Dimensity 1200.
Another part that has been improved is multimedia support with the new Imagiq 790. Signal processor has twice the processing power than its predecessor Supports sensors Maximum 320MP or maximum of 32MP.In addition to the video recording capabilities offered by the Dimensity 1200, the Dimensity 9000 supports 8K video recording at 24fps or up to three simultaneous 4K HDR streams.
