The official page of Dimensity 9000 emphasizes that it is the world's first TSMC 4nm process SoC. 'It's the first time MediaTek has been at the forefront of process nodes since the 20nm era,' said Anand Tech, a tech media.

In addition, the Dimensity 9000 is equipped with the Arm v9 architecture-based CPUs 'Arm Cortex-X2', 'Arm Cortex-A710' and 'Arm Cortex-A510' announced in May 2021 for the first time in the world. In addition, Arm's flagship GPU 'Mali-G710' is also installed, and it is said that it will demonstrate high gaming performance.

The image processor (ISP) on the Dimensity 9000 is capable of transferring data at 9 gigapixels per second and is the first in the world to support a 320 megapixel image sensor.

Of course, it also supports 5G communication. In addition, it is equipped with the latest wireless technology, such as being the first SoC for smartphones in the world to support Bluetooth 5.3.

The detailed specifications of Dimensity 9000 are as follows.

CPU 1x Arm Cortex-X2
3x Arm Cortex-A710
4x Arm Cortex-A510
GPU Mali-G710 MC10
ISP Imagiq790
modem 5G NR Sub-6
LTE Category 24/18
Media performance Encoding: 8K30fps, 4K120FPS
Decode: 8K60fps
Process node 4nm

Technology-related media The Verge said, 'At Qualcomm's Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit on November 30, 2021, it is expected that the successor SoC of Snapdragon 888 will be announced, and that SoC will also be equipped with a CPU that adopts the Arm v9 architecture. But even if Qualcomm announces a similar-performance SoC, the Dimensity 9000 is a big win for MediaTek, which has been far behind, 'said Dimensity 9000. It emphasizes that it is an SoC equipped with the latest technology one step ahead of other manufacturers.
