MediaTek reveals latest Dimensity chips for 5G smartphones


The Dimensity 920 and 810 chipsets are expected to power 5G smartphones slated for a third quarter 2021 release

Taiwanese firm MediaTek announced last Thursday, August 12, it was coming out with new additions to its Dimensity 5G chip family, namely the Dimensity 920 and Dimensity 810 chipsets meant for smartphones.

The Dimensity 920 take advantage of Arm Cortex-A78 processors in the octa-core CPU which can reach 2.5GHz clock speeds. It also sports the latest LPDDR5 memory and UFS 3.1 storage for improved performance, including a 9% boost in gaming performance compared to to the Dimensity 900 chip.

The Dimensity 920 also boasts support for adaptive display refresh rates, depending on the game or user interface action detected, allowing it to boost the refresh rate when gaming or decrease it for less intensive tasks, while also supporting hardware-based 4K HDR video capture.

The Dimensity 810 chipset, meanwhile, is slightly less beefy, but still a powerhouse in its own right, with Arm Cortex-A76 processors supporting up to 2.4GHz clock speeds on the octa-core CPU.

The Dimensity 810 chipset will support advanced noise reduction techniques (MFNR & MCTF) for low-light capture, and allow the use of up to 64-megapixel cameras with a phone. Its use will also allow mainstream 5G smartphones to have 120Hz displays.

MediaTek made this announcement on the heels of the July reveal of the Kompanio 1300T system-on-a-chip for tablets and other personal computing products.

MediaTek’s Dimensity 920 and Dimensity 810 will power 5G smartphones which are expected to come out globally for the third quarter of 2021. More information on the Dimensity chipsets is available here. –
