We know that Qualcomm launched the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 on the basis of the original Snapdragon 8 flagship chip. Identically, yesterday, MediaTek launched the Dimensity 9000+ on the basis of the Dimensity 9000. Both use TSMC’s 4nm process, an X2 super core at a 3.2GHz ultra-high frequency, and a few other similar parameters. So, which of them does perform better?
The day after its release, the Dimensity 9000+ appeared in the GeekBench 5 benchmark database. From the screenshot, we can see that it scored 1322 points and 4331 points in the single-core and multi-core tests, respectively.
Compared with the results of the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, the Dimensity 9000+ leads by about 20 points in single-core and about 130 points in multi-core tests.
At present, the Dimensity 9000+ has just seen the light. So there is still a lot of room for optimization. In addition, the Dimensity 9000 itself has excellent high energy efficiency. It is expected that the performance and energy efficiency of commercial terminals will be more advantageous.
Based on the Dimensity 9000, the Dimensity 9000+ increases the frequency of a single super-core X2 from 3.05GHz to 3.2GHz, while the three large A710 cores remain at 2.85GHz, and the four small A510 cores are maintained at 1.8GHz. The company proves it has a 5% performance boost.
As for the graphics card, it still uses the deca-core Mali-G710 GPU. Officially, the performance is increased by 10%.
Other specifications remain unchanged, such as LPDDR5X 7500Mbps memory, APU 590 AI unit, HyperEngine 5.0 game engine, Imgiq 790 imaging technology, MiraVision 790 display technology, R16 5G baseband (three-carrier aggregation/downlink 7Gbps/UltraSave 2.0 power saving), Wi- Fi 6E 2×2, Bluetooth 5.3, and more.
However, we will see the real competition between these two only when the final products reach end users. Because on paper, any product might look outstanding. But in real life, they will provide a different performance.
