What you need to know

  • MediaTek has announced the new Dimensity 9000+ flagship chipset.
  • The chip’s Cortex X-2 core is clocked at a higher 3.2GHz for faster performance.
  • The Dimensity will go up against the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 when the first phones launch in Q3 2022.

As we await the first phones with Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 to reach the market, MediaTek is coming onto the scene with a mid-year refresh of its own. The chipmaker has announced the new Dimensity 9000+ chipset to give flagship smartphones a boost in the second half of 2022.

One of the biggest differences between the Dimensity 9000 and this newer chip is the increase in CPU power. The main Cortex X-2 performance core is clocked a bit higher at 3.2GHz, up from 3.05GHz on the standard Dimensity 9000. This should provide a 5% boost in performance, while the Arm Mali-G710 MC10 GPU will see a 10% performance increase.
