MediaTek Dimensity 800U. MediaTek has announced the new mid-range chipset Dimincity 800U in the Dimincity 800 series. It is the company’s sixth system with an integrated 5G modem and the sixth chip in the overall Dimensity series.
MediaTek’s Dioncity 800U lineup integrates with integrated 5G modems, including Dimincity 800U, Dymancity 720, Dymancity 800, Dymancity 820, Dymancity 1000, and Dymancity 1000+.
MediaTek Dimensity 800U
Here are some key features of the new MediaTek Dimension 800U
- It is based on the 7nm production process (TSMC’s 7nm FinFET).
- It has an octa-core CPU clocked at 2.4GHz with 2 ARM Cortex-A76 CPU cores and 6GM Cortex-A55 CPU cores clocked at 2.0GHz.
- It supports ARM’s Mali-G57 GPU, an independent AI processing unit (APU), LPDDR4X RAM (up to 2133MHz), and UFS 2.1-class storage.
- It supports displays at full HD + resolution and 120Hz refresh rates. MediaTek also claims to support HDR10 + video and MediaTek’s custom Miravision PQ engine with additional HDR upgrades for videos.
- Its ISP supports 64MP image sensors and quad camera configurations.
- It includes support for Voice On Awareness (VoW), multiple trigger terms and voice assistant services, and dual mic noise reduction technology.
- Finally, it has 5G + 5G dual SIM dual standby (DSDS), sub-6GHz 5G on SA and NSA networks, dual voice over new radio (VNR), 5G Two carrier aggregation (2cc 5G-CA), and MediaTek’s 5G Ultrasound technology.
- The 4 ARM Cortex-A76 CPU cores on the Tymancity 800 are clocked at up to 2.0 GHz, while the 4 ARM Cortex-A55 CPU cores are clocked at up to 2.0 GHz, while the Tymoncity 820 has 4 ARM Cortex-A76 CPU cores up to 2.6 GHz. And 4 ARM Cortex-A55 CPU cores clocked up to 2.0GHz. So, the new Dimensity 800 U will have better single-core performance than the Density 800, but not the Dimensity 820, but it will have worse multi-core performance than both the Dimensity 800 and Dimension City 820. Like the Tymancity 800 and Diamond City 820 new 800U, the ARM has a Mali-G57 GPU, the 800’s Mali-G57 GPU 4 cores, and the 820’s Mali-G57 GPU5 cores. According to MediaTek, the Daimonity 800U has 11% faster CPU performance and 28% faster GPU performance compared to the Daimoncity 720, which is an ARM Mali-G57 MC3.
Outside of China, MediaTek does not even have a smartphone to launch with the Dimension chipset, although the company recently confirmed that devices with chipsets will be launched outside China in Q3 2020.
