MediaTek announced enhancements to its Dimensity 5G chipset family with the Dimensity 1000+ yesterday, an enhanced 5G-integrated chip with a number of leading technologies and upgrades for gaming, video and power-efficiency.
Dimensity 1000+ is based on the flagship performance of the Dimensity 1000 series and delivers a high-end, premium user experience. With years of accumulated experience in integrated chip technologies, MediaTek has made breakthroughs and innovations in all aspects and has become a pioneer in the 5G era.
“Dimensity 1000+ showcases an incredible, flagship-grade user experience for smartphone users globally. The single chip integrates in a suite of world-leading innovations in 5G connectivity and power-efficiency, plus unique display, video and gaming technologies that make it stand out” said Dr. Yenchi Lee, Assistant General Manager of MediaTek’s Wireless Communications Business Unit.
The chipset may be used in an iQOO smartphone very soon.
World’s Most Advanced 5G-integrated SoC, with Best-in-Class Power Efficiency
Dimensity 1000+ delivers leading 5G capabilities including Carrier Aggregation, dual 5G SIM, superfast 5G speeds, and MediaTek’s 5G UltraSave power saving technologies that dynamically adjust the modem’s power configuration and operating frequency according to network conditions and user activities to significantly save power. When the modem goes full throttle, it can aggregate two 5G sub-6GHz links and deliver 4.7Gbps downlink and 2.5Gbps uplink speeds. Also, on dual SIM phones both SIM cards can connect to 5G. VoNR, Voice over New Radio (aka 5G) is also supported. The modem can also seamlessly switch between 5G and 4G depending on connection quality.
Ultra-Fast 144Hz Display Support
MediaTek’s cutting-edge display technology provides users the ultimate visual experience. Dimensity 1000+ supports the highest 144Hz refresh rate; this operates 2.4 times faster per second than an ordinary 60Hz display found on many smartphones.
144Hz displays are a perfect match for high frame rate videos and gaming apps, minimizing motion blur and jitter, showcasing an ultra-fluid and highly responsive gaming experience.
New Technology Additions to HyperEngine 2.0
Dimensity 1000+ incorporates the latest HyperEngine 2.0 technologies, which optimizes the whole smartphone for a more fluid and immersive gaming experience.
This includes a Resource Management Engine to ensure game performance fluidity with minimal power consumption by intelligently managing CPU, GPU and memory resources.
The upgraded Networking Engine enables call and data concurrency, ensuring the data connection remains live when a call is received. In addition, an intelligent switch between 5G and 4G networks based on application needs, minimizes power consumption while maintaining user experience.
The Rapid Response Engine creates a lag-free gaming experience with multi-peripheral co-existence to avoid any potential interference and ensure Bluetooth/Wi-Fi can transmit simultaneously, without lag, effectively lowering latency.
New MiraVision Video Playback Enhancements
Dimensity 1000+ also incorporates MediaTek’s latest MiraVision technologies that is designed to improve per frame picture quality.
•AI-PQ: Using the integrated APU 3.0’s immense processing power, along with MediaTek’s dedicated MiraVision Picture Quality Engine, the Dimensity 10000+ can dynamically adjust per frame contrast, sharpness and color levels, to enhance the picture quality of 4K videos and streams in real time.
•Better than HDR10+: MiraVision Picture Quality Engine provides real-time, fine-grained frame adjustments to the dynamic range and details of 4K videos and streams, serving up better picture quality than standard HDR10+.
•SDR to HDR: MiraVision Picture Quality Engine uses a fine-grained technique to enhance the dynamic range of 4K videos in real time, intelligently upgrading SDR videos and streams to HDR quality.
With its high performance and upgraded technology feature set, MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ will become a benchmark for flagship-grade user experiences in the 5G era. Multiple devices powered by MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ will be available in the market soon.
