Taiwanese chipset maker, MediaTek has announced the addition of two new chipsets, the Dimensity 920 and the Dimensity 810. Both chipsets are built on the 6nm process and they come from the Dimensity 900 and Dimensity 800 series respectively.
The chipsets look like they were built for mid-range devices. They are powered by octa-core CPUs with support for Full HD+ displays and a 120Hz refresh rate. The Cortex-A78 cores of the Dimensity 920 clocks at 2.5GHz speed while the other Cortex-A55 has a clock speed of 2.0GHz. For graphics, the Dimensity 920 is powered by a Mali-G68 MC4 GPU which according to MediaTek saves more power and is 9% faster when gaming compared to the Dimensity 900.
In terms of memory, Dimensity 920 supports both the LPDDR4x and LPDDR5 RAM options. It also supports both the UFS 2.2 and UFS 3.1 storage options giving more flexibility for storage expansion. In terms of connectivity, there is support for Dual 5G SIM and VoNR service. The latest Bluetooth and Wi-Fi standards are supported as well as 2×2 MIMO.
The Dimensity 810 becomes the first chipset from the 800 series to be built on a 6nm process. Its CPU has Cortex-A76 cores clocked at 2.4GHz and it also has power-efficient Cortex-A55 cores with an unconfirmed speed. For graphics, it has a Mali-G57 GPU and it offers support for LPDDR4x RAM and UFS 2.2 storage. It also offers Dual 5G SIM connectivity support.
The smartphones powered by both chipsets are expected to be available in the third quarter of 2021.
