MediaTek launches the Dimensity 1200 and 1100 as its first 6nm chipsets
Today, MediaTek has announced its first 6nm chipsets that are the Dimensity 1200 and Dimensity 1100. Comparing both, the Dimensity 1200 is more of a flagship chipset from the manufacturer while the Dimensity 1100 targets the affordable premium 5G smartphone sector. The chipsets will debut in smartphones by the end of March this year.
Other than based on the 6nm process, the chipsets also come with an integrated 5G modem that supports sub-6GHz 5G carrier aggregation (2cc), 5G SA (standalone), and NSA (non-standalone) modes. MediaTek claims that the peak download speed can reach 4.7Gbps over 5G networks. The chipsets share some similar connectivity features as well including Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, FM Radio, GPS, BeiDou, Glonass, Galileo, QZSS, and NavIC navigation systems.
Furthermore, both of the chipsets are also octa-core chipsets. However, the Dimensity 1200 features a triple cluster arrangement while the Dimensity 1100 has a dual-cluster arrangement. The Dimensity 1200 has its prime Cortex-A78 CPU core running at a maximum frequency of 3.0GHz, three more Cortex-A78 cores running at 2.6GHz, and four power-efficient Cortex-A55 cores running at 2.0GHz. Meanwhile, the Dimensity 1100 has all four Cortex-A78 CPU cores topped at 2.6GHz alongside the other four power-efficient Cortex-A55 cores that still operate at 2.0GHz. For graphics, they get the same Mali-G77 MC9 GPU.
As a flagship chipset, the Dimensity 1200 naturally has more powerful features compared to the other one. It is stated that the chipset will be supporting up to 200MP cameras. For the Dimensity 1100, it only supports up to 108MP. Besides that, the Dimensity 1200 has a display driver that can handle display refresh rates of up to 168Hz at Full HD+ resolution. The Dimensity 1100 only supports display refresh rates of up to 144Hz at Full HD+ resolution.
If you've been following the news, MediaTek had surpassed Qualcomm and other chip manufacturers in Q3 2020 by grabbing the most market share. It is exciting to see how the Taiwanese chip manufacturer will continue to excel in the near future. Lastly, a rumour has also suggested that the realme X9 Pro will be one of the first smartphones to arrive with the Dimensity 1200 chipset.
