MediaTek today launched its Dimensity 9000 5G smartphone chip for next-generation flagship smartphones, and announced device maker adoption and endorsements from some of the world’s biggest smartphone brands, including OPPO, vivo, Xiaomi and Honor.

The first Dimensity 9000 powered flagship smartphones will be in the market in the first quarter of next year.

The Dimensity 9000 - the world’s first smartphone built on the TMSC N4 (4nm-class) production process.

MediaTek’s Wireless Communications Business Unit Yenchi Lee saidthe Dimensity 9000 was a milestone for MediaTek, highlighting its rise with a true flagship 5G smartphone chip.

“This chip signals MediaTek and our Dimensity family has entered a new phase of innovation. The Dimensity 9000 is the most powerful and energy-efficient chip to date, delivering a number of industry firsts and a full suite of features for the most discerning tech enthusiasts”, he said.

Dimensity 9000 integrates the cutting-edge Armv9 CPU architecture. The octa-core CPU has one ultra Cortex-X2 core operating at up to 3.05GHz, three performance A710 cores operating at up to 2.85GHz and four efficiency Cortex-A510 cores. It has an integrated LPDDR5X supporting up to 7500Mbps, along with an 8MB L3 cache and 6MB system cache.

The chipset integrates MediaTek’s fifth generation Application Processor Unit (APU 5.0), which offers 4X power efficiency gains compared to the previous generation APU, for the ideal balance of performance and power efficiency for a wide range of AI multimedia, gaming, camera and video experiences.

Dimensity 9000 includes the world’s first Arm Mali-G710 MC10 GPU in a smartphone chip. To further boost performance, the chipset integrates MediaTek’s HyperEngine 5.0, the fifth generation of MediaTek’s gaming technology. HyperEngine 5.0 uses AI-acceleration to optimise graphics while reducing the GPU load, resulting in faster gameplay that looks better and is more power-efficient.

HyperEngine integrates AI-VRS, the first AI-enhanced variable rate shading technology for smartphones, along with the industry’s first raytracing software development kit (SDK) using Vulkan for Android.

OPPO Vice President Henry Duan said: “I am excited to share that the next Find X flagship will be the first to be launched with the Dimensity 9000 flagship platform.

"This is a premium device that brings together so many cutting-edge features in one device and we know users will be impressed with its breakthrough performance and outstanding energy efficiency.”
