Mediatek takes up the fight against Qualcomm and Apple with Dimensity 9000

In recent years, the circuit manufacturer Mediatek has mainly produced system circuits for slightly more budget-oriented phones, while Qualcomm, Apple and Samsung have dominated among the flagships. The company’s latest flagship models Helio X20 and Helio X30 have been around for several years and did not have a major impact. Despite this, things are going well, to say the least, for the company, whose growth is going like the train and is forecast to grow by 60 percent in 2021 compared with the previous year.

Now they will once again invest heavily in the premium segment and take up the fight with the flagship Dimensity 9000. It is equipped with eight cores based on the new ARMv9 architectures in a hybrid configuration. It is a core Cortex-X2 accompanied by three Cortex-A710 and four Cortex-A510. This is also flanked by a new graphics part in the form of the Mali-G710 and support for the memory standard LPDDR5X.


According to Mediatek, the Dimensity 9000 with Cortex-X2 will offer 35 percent higher performance while being 37 percent more energy efficient than the current top model for Android. Which model they are compared to is not mentioned, but it is probably Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888. Despite the advantage on the Android side, the battle is smoother in comparisons with Apple’s counterpart, where the Dimensity 9000 performs similar to the Bionic A15 in multi-wire performance.

Already in April, information said that Mediatek looked to be the first at 4 nanometers, which is now confirmed. Dimensity 9000 is manufactured on TSMC’s fresh 4-nanometer technology and is planned to land on the market during the first quarter of 2022. Among stakeholders, former mobile manufacturers Oppo and Xiaomi have been mentioned, where the former already uses system circuits from Mediatek for the Oneplus Nord 2 model.
