Let us not underestimate MediaTek. Dimensity 9000 is our hope to change the rules of the game

For years MediaTek has been associated mainly with the production of budget systems, created with cheaper phones in mind. Over time, the Taiwanese giant began to sharpen its teeth for the premium segment, but its approaches were rather shy.

At the beginning of 2021, the most efficient MediaTek chip – Dimensity 1200 was released. This one was characterized by surprisingly high efficiency for this brand, but & hairsp; – & hairsp; not just & hairsp; – & hairsp; only for this brand. For the Snapdragon 888 or Exynos 2100 units debuting at the same time, the Taiwanese proposal did not take off.

And you can even see it on paper:

  • Qualcomm and Samsung went down to the 5nm lithographic process and MediaTek stopped at 6nm;
  • Qualcomm and Samsung reached for the ultra-efficient Cortex-X1 cores, and Mediatek stayed with the weaker Cortex-A78;
  • Qualcomm and Samsung used the latest and most powerful graphics chips, and MediaTek was content with the 2019 GPU.

This, of course, translated into lower prices. While many months passed before the Snapdragon 888 began to hit single phones for less than PLN 3,000, the Dimensity 1200 from the beginning was created for smartphones with this, and even much lower price. You can find it, among others in OnePlus Nord 2 for PLN 1899.

MediaTek Dimensity 9000 changes everything

When it comes to technical parameters, the Dimensity 9000 – unlike its predecessors & hairsp; – & hairsp; makes no compromises.

Lowest in the world lithographic process (4 nm). The most efficient cores available on the market (Cortex-X2 and Cortex-A710). newest graphics in the offer of Arm (Mali-G710). MediaTek takes no prisoners for the first time in history.

The giant boasts that it has created the most advanced chip in the world, although this is mainly due to the quick presentation. The company does not hide that the first smartphones with Dimensity 1200 will not hit the market until the first quarter of 2022. And then the market should also be flooded with phones with the successor of Snapdragon 888. MediaTek simply unveiled the cards faster than Qualcomm.

MediaTek Dimensity 9000 can be mixed up quite well. Especially in terms of price

Will the Snapdragon 8 gen1 (or whatever it is called) be more efficient and / or more energy efficient? Maybe. For now, however, nothing indicates that the differences are gigantic, because MediaTek has at least reached for the latest available technologies. This alone will shorten the distance to rivals.

Anyway, more important than the results of the benchmarks is that what the chip is capable of. A Dimensity 9000 supports 144-hertz 1440p screens, 4K HDR movie recording with three cameras simultaneously, and ray tracing in games.

Previous media outlets did not have such opportunities. And we are talking about solutions that the producers of fully-fledged flagships care about.

Chip prices and terms of cooperation with individual producers are not public. However, we can be sure that MediaTek will offer manufacturers lower prices than Qualcommbecause it has always been his bargaining chip. And when the Americans finally feel their rival’s breath on their backs, they will have to react somehow.

Increased competitiveness always has a positive effect on consumers. Dimensity 9000 can be our hope for clearly cheaper, but still very strong flagships.
