It's no secret that MediaTek intends to give a hard time to Qualcomm in the race to 5G. The Chinese giant has recently presented Dimensity, a new line of processors for smartphones that will support, among other things, the 5G. The flagship model is called its Dimensity 1000 5G, and should be mounted on many Android models in the near future. It especially comes to top of the range of Chinese homes released in the first quarter of 2020. MediaTek
Dimensity 1000 5G is made with FinFET production process to 7 nanometers. Supports 5G 2CC CA, and theoretical maximum speeds of 4.7GB of 2.5GB download and upload speed, but only on a sub-6GHz networks.
The new high-end SoC is a octa-core structure with big.LITTLE. It consists of four core Cortex A77 of 2.6GHz, supported by other four A55 cores which can reach up to 2GHz.
The graphics are entrusted to the new Mali GPU G77, which should guarantee high-level performance with 3D gaming without too many problems in the management of the 2K resolution.
There is also an image processor core 5, which will support cameras with zoom lenses up as many as 80 megapixels.
MediaTek has also spoken of APU 3.0, a unit dedicated to artificial intelligence. It 'an additional 6-core chipset, which on paper should have twice the performance of its predecessor, reaching 4.5 TOPS. It should find its natural application in the camera software. In theory it should be possible to exploit it for managing algorithms that optimize the balance of the different parameters in the shots. The contrast values, exposure, type of HDR and so could be optimized and automated, improving the quality of photos and video.
MediaTek Dimensity 1000 is not only 5G, and artificial intelligence, but also gives the display space. Following the trend of recent years, the new SoC ensures compatibility with new 2K + panels up to 90 hertz, and FHD + up to 120 hertz.
