Although MediaTek is not yet close to competing with Qualcomm in terms of manufacturing technology, and it will reach a 5-nanometer lithography only early next year , it certainly stays around all the time and allows manufacturers to offer 5G solutions even for the relatively low market. It now offers two more new processors and is constantly raising its eyebrows as it produces them at 6 nanometers.
Dimensity 1100 and Dimensity 1200 are also the company’s first processors using the Cortex-A78 have undergone its main cores and they replace the Cortex-A77 cores embedded in + Dimensity 1000. In addition, in 1200 the company offers a core arrangement of 1+ 3 + 4 where the main core, based of course on the Cortex-A78 offers a maximum speed of 3 GHz versus 2.6 GHz of the second level which is also based on the A78, while the third level continues to be based on the Cortex-A55 cores at 2.0 GHz Hertz. According to ARM, the 3 GHz A78 core offers a 20% improvement over the 2.6 GHz A77 core.
In fact the significant difference between 1000 and 1200 is that 1100 offers like +1000 a quad-core display on four cores, with the Cortex-A77 being replaced as stated in the Cortex-A78. In terms of graphics chip there is no change – Mali-G77 in a 9-core configuration. There is also no change in the aspect of 5G support with a maximum download speed of 4.7 Gbps.
Dimensity 1100, like its predecessor, offers support for a refresh rate of 144 Hz at 1080p resolution, and in terms of photography it supports sensors up to 108 megapixels. He also offers like his new friend a 20% shooting speed when shooting at night when used in a dedicated mode.
The Dimesity 1200 offers one more level up with support for a refresh rate of 168 Hz at the same resolution, as well as support for photo sensors up to 200 megapixels, as well as an improvement of the dynamic range by about 40% when shooting videos at 4K resolution.
First phones with the new processors are expected to hit the market in April.
