MediaTek brings in 6nm chipsets to the mix!
Oppo recently launched the Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G with the Dimensity 1000+ chipset and it was a long waited one. However MediaTek is not the one to rest and the company has already launched two more new chipsets as the latest addition to its Dimensity line-up namely, Dimensity 1100 and Dimensity 1200. Most of the brands have made a leap from 7nm chipsets to 5nm chipsets directly, however MediaTek took a different route and launched 6nm chipsets brining and offering all the more options to its users in terms of efficient and powerful 5G processors. Let’s take a look into the properties of these chipsets.
Specifications of Dimensity 1200:
Dimensity 1200 consists of ARM Cortex-A78 ulta core, having the capability of clocking a speed of up to 3GHz with 2X L2 cache.
The chipset also has four ARM Cortex-A55 efficiency cores with a speed of up to 2GHz, and three ARM Cortex-A78 super cores clocking up to 2.6GHz.
For graphics, the Dimensity 1200 SoC makes use of ARM Mali-G77 MC9 GPU. It also supports UFS 3.1 storage, along with a maximum of 16GB LDDR4x memory.
And, as mentioned before, it is integrated with the MediaTek HyperEngine 3.0 gaming technology.
A single camera sensor up to 200MP is supported by the SoC. Alternatively, the SoC can also support two sensors of up to 32MP + 16MP.
As for the connectivity features, the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC includes Bluetooth 5.2, mutli-mode 5G, 4G, GPS, Radio as well as Wi-Fi 6.
Specifications of Dimensity 1100:
Dimensity 1100 5G SoC is also an octa-core SoC, equipped with four ARM Cortex-A78 cores with speed up to 2.6GHz and four ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocking a speed of up to 2GHz.
The graphics, storage and memory specifications offered by Dimensity 1100 5G SoC is the same as that of Dimensity 1200.
The resolution support is the same as Dimensity 1200, the MediaTek Dimensity 1100 5G SoC offers a refresh rate of up 144Hz.
The Dimensity 1100 5G SoC can support combo sensors of up to 32MP+16MP cameras, or a single camera sensor of up to 108MP.
While it hasn’t even been long that the company has launched these new chipsets, we already have hints of witnessing the launch of new smartphones that would be powered by these chipsets. Vivo, Oppo, Xiaomi and Realme would soon be launching phones running on these Dimensity SoCs, Realme has announced that it would be among the first manufacturers to release a flagship smartphone running on the Dimensity 1200. Therefore, we sure do have a lot to look forward to in the coming months. It has definitely been a good start to the year 2021. What are your thoughts on the new launches by MediaTek? Are they going to soon rule the flagship segment too?
