Rumors and leaks suggest a 5nm node, Mali-G510 GPU in MediaTek’s Dimensity 8000 processor
MediaTek said today that the upcoming Dimensity 9000 chipset will be used in the Oppo Find X4 and Redmi K50 smartphones. The Dimensity 8000 chip, a lower-cost alternative, was also teased at the same time (the 9000 is expected to be pricey).
In presentations, the business announced the chip, but it has not yet revealed the specifics. There are no hiccups with Leakster Digital Chat Station, however. It will be manufactured on TSMC’s 5 nm process instead of the cutting-edge 4 nm process for this chip. That being said, it will be a nice upgrade over the 1000-series of Dimensity chips, most of which ran on the 6 nm node.
In addition, ARMv8 designs with four Cortex-A78 (2.75 GHz) and four Cortex-A55 (2.0 GHz) cores will be utilized in the 8000 chip instead of the new A710/A510 that were used in the 9000, making it more intriguing. The new Mali-G510 MC6 GPU will be used in conjunction with the older cores, which makes for an intriguing combination. In comparison to the previous generation of ARM GPUs, the G510 is twice as fast and 22% more energy efficient.
Having a powerful but efficient GPU could make this chipset a popular choice for high-end mid-range devices. According to reports, Redmi and Realme are interested. Displays of 1080p+ and 1440p+ resolutions are supported by the chipset. It supports LPDDR5 and UFS 3.1 for memory.
The Dimensity 7000 name was first leaked, but now the Dimensity 8000 name has been unveiled. As far as we know, Realme’s Head of Advertising Xu Qi Chase has expressed interest in the new chipset.
