ROG Phone 6D Ultimate

ASUS today announced two more members of the ROG Phone 6 series, named ROG Phone 6D and 6D Ultimate. The “D” here refers to MediaTek’s Dimensity 9000+ processor, which is one of the very few flagship gaming phones on the market that uses the Dimensity processor. Dimensity 9000+ is an octa-core processor and uses TSMC’s 4nm process, with a large core clock peak of 3.2GHz. According to ASUS’ own tests, the GPU in the Dimensity 9000 + is not as good as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, but its CPU score is said to be greater than the latter, along with faster LPDDR5X memory to improve overall performance further.

In terms of appearance, the ROG Phone 6D series is similar to the earlier ROG Phone 6 series, except that the color “Aviation Titanium Grey” is used. However, ROG Phone 6D Ultimate hides a secret: it has an “AeroActive Port” design in the upper center of the back when held horizontally. This cooling valve is normally closed tightly, but it will only be opened when the “COOLER AeroActive 6” package from the ROG Phone 6 series is connected, and it docks with fan air outlet. This allows the wind from the fan to be “sent directly” to the liquid temperature plate inside the phone. According to Asus, this can increase the heat dissipation efficiency of the phone by about 20% and cool it by about 10 degrees Celsius, allowing the phone to maintain a similar body temperature in games, temperature.
