MediaTek Dimensity 8100 is a new competitor to Snapdragon in the “middleweight”

MediaTek has expanded its line of Dimensity mobile platforms with two new models at once. Both of them are designed for powerful mid-range smartphones with 5G support and are capable of working with high-resolution camera sensors. In addition, the vendor introduced the Dimensity 1300 chip, an upgraded version of its previous flagship with a few changes.


The 5nm MediaTek Dimensity 8100 architecture includes four performance ARM Cortex-A78 cores (2.85 GHz), four energy-efficient Cortex-A55 (2.0 GHz) and Mali-G610 MC6 graphics. The platform is equipped with the Imagiq 780 ISP image processor, which offers simultaneous HDR video recording from two cameras and HDR10 + movie creation in 4K @ 60 fps, as well as support for 200-megapixel sensors and 2x lossless zoom.

The neural unit APU 580 is responsible for AI calculations: according to the specification, it is 2.5 times faster than its predecessor. In addition, the chipset received a 3GPP Release-16 5G modem with support for 5G Dual SIM Dual Standby and peak downlink performance of 4.7 Gbps. Declared support for Bluetooth 5.3, Wi-Fi 6E 2×2 and Bluetooth LE Audio (Dual-Link True Wireless Stereo).

A more affordable version of the platform called Dimensity 8000 has almost the same characteristics, but the clock speed of the “large” cores in this model is slightly lower (2.75 GHz). In addition, the SoC only supports Full HD+ displays with refresh rates up to 168Hz, while the older model can also handle QHD+ panels at 120Hz.

MediaTek Dimensity is still manufactured using TSMC’s 6nm process and integrates one Cortex-A78 (3.0GHz), three of the same at 2.6GHz, and four “small” Cortex-A55 (2.0 GHz), as well as the Mali-G77 MC9 GPU with support for HyperEngine 5.0 gaming technology. The platform is compatible with 200-megapixel cameras, supports LPDDR4X-4266 memory up to 16 GB and UFS 3.1 drives.

The maximum display resolution that a smartphone with such a processor can have is 2520×1080 pixels with a refresh rate of up to 168 Hz. In addition, the SoC supports Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, and 5G networks, delivering download speeds up to 4.7Gbps. The date of appearance on the market of the first smartphones based on the new MediaTek processors will be announced later.
