MediaTek unveiled an enhanced version of its flagship 5G chipset, Dimensity 1000+. It is based on the same hardware core as the Dimensity 1000 but offers numerous enhancements that look like they were tailor-made for a gaming phone.
MediaTek Dimensity 1000+, new Mobile SoC with 144Hz support
The Dimensity 1000+ chip now supports 144Hz displays with a maximum resolution of 1080p+ (with aspect ratios up to 21:9). The MiraEngine automatically enhances SDR videos and converts them to HDR10+.
MediaTek has developed 5G UltraSave to reduce the power consumption of the modem. It has a low and high bandwidth mode and dynamically switches between them depending on what the applications need. This can reduce power consumption by up to 32%.
When running at full speed, the modem can add two 5G sub-6GHz connections and offers 4.7Gbps downstream and 2.5Gbps upstream speeds. In addition, dual SIM phones can connect both SIM cards to 5G. It also supports VoNR, Voice over New Radio (aka 5G). The modem can also dynamically switch seamlessly between 5G and 4G depending on the quality of the connection.
Then there is HyperEngine 2.0, which is responsible for the entire chipset and scales the CPU and GPU frequencies and RAM memory to ensure optimal performance. Any wireless connection (from 5G to Bluetooth) also falls within its scope.
The chipset minimizes the latency of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections and features “anti-interference” technology that should make it resistant to, or at least minimize classic wireless interference.
Like the vanilla version, the Dimensity 1000+ is a 7nm chip with four Cortex A77 cores and four A55 cores and contains a Mali-G77 MP9 GPU. The memory controller supports LPDDR4X in four channel mode.
The first company that would use this chip is iQOO, which wants to take full advantage of this new SoC, especially because of its support for 144Hz displays. We will keep you informed.
