MediaTek would push Qualcomm upstairs

The processor, which is expected to be released in the second quarter of next year, has packed pretty much everything MediaTek will need for its 2022 high-end smartphones. The Dimensity 9000 is one of the first to use ARM’s latest core, the Cortex-X2. The upgrade, unveiled in the spring, promises 16 percent higher computing power than the X1 with CPU operations, while jumping in typically less commonly used machine learning can be as much as a jump.

In addition to the one-piece 3.05 GHz peak core, the designers have fitted three more modest-performing Cortex-A710s. Considering the golden mean, the A710 continues the previously known A78-A77-A76 line. The core carries on the design philosophy we have learned so far from ARM, with a strong emphasis on balancing performance and consumption. With this, a 10 percent increase in performance was achieved compared to the A78, while dissipation was reduced by a greater 30 percent.

In terms of efficiency, a quad-core Cortex-A510 cluster was placed at the lowest level. The A510 continues on the path trodden with the A55, primarily with a view to increasing computing power. According to the design company, the A510 has an advantage over the immediate predecessor A55 in integer operations and 50 percent in floating-point operations.

The role of the GPU will also be played by an ARM development, the Mali G710MP10. The ten-core graphics unit will outperform the current Android processors on the market by 35 percent, according to MediaTek, while the efficiency could be significantly higher at 60 percent.


The garnish also seems strong. The Dimensity 9000 will be among the first to support the LPDDR5X memory recently introduced by Samsung. According to MediaTek, the memory controller will be capable of a bandwidth of around 60 GB / s at a clock speed of 3750 MHz. Next to it is the Imagiq790 image processor, which will be able to handle up to three separate 32 megapixel sensors. There will be no shortage of encoders and decoders either: the chip will support decoding movies up to 8K60 during playback, and 8K30 / 4K120 will be the ceiling for encoding.

Last but not least, network connectivity: the Dimensity 9000 will carry MediaTek’s latest 5G radio unit, which, thanks to 3CC carrier aggregation, can bring download speeds of up to 7Gbps in the sub-6GHz range. In addition, the chip will support Wi-Fi 6E as well as Bluetooth 5.3, also among the first on the market.

Qualcomm in the crosshairs

With its latest application processor, MediaTek, which has stayed out of the top category for the past few years, can break peppers primarily under Qualcomm’s nose. According to September data, the Taiwanese chip designer increased its share of the smartphone market by 65 percent (or 17 percentage points) in a single year, leading MediaTek to a significant advantage over second-place Qualcomm: while MediaTek had 43 percent and Qualcomm 24 percent. holdings according to data from early autumn. According to the research, the Taiwanese company took good advantage of the supply problems, allowing it to deliver more 4G chips than any competitor.

At the same time, Qualcomm leads the market for more expensive 5G products with 55 percent, while MediaTek has only a 30 percent share. If Dimensity 9000 lives up to expectations, the Taiwanese company could increase its stake over its number one competitor Qualcom. The first devices based on MediaTek’s high-end processor will be available next spring.
