Earlier today, MediaTek officially released the Dimensity 820 processor. The latter uses a 7nm technology and is positioning mid-to-high-end markets. It’s been mainly designed to compete with the Snapdragon 765 and other processors. The chip’s slogan is ‘performance beyond, the strongest at the same level’.
The Dimensity 820 processor uses four big cores and four small cores. The large A76 cores has a clock speed of 2.6GHz, and the small core uses A55 cores. The company claim that its single-core score is 7% higher than Qualcomm 765G. In Antutu, it scored 37% higher, reaching 410,000.
The MediaTek Dimensity 820 processor uses the Mali-G57 MP5 GPU, the same Valhall architecture as the Dimensity 1000+, and also cooperates with the HyperEngine 2.0 game engine to improve game performance.
The Redmi 10X is said to be the first and cheapest phone powered by this processor.
According to the official, the Dimensity 820 processor uses the same APU architecture as the Dimensity 1000+. It also has the independent AI processor APU3.0 to make AI video gameplay richer.
We learned that the Dimensity 820 claims to be equipped with the world’s most advanced M70 5G baseband. It supports NSA/SA, 5G + 5G dual card dual standby as well as 5G dual carrier aggregation. It also comes with an exclusive UltraSave 5G power saving technology. MediaTek said that the 5G power consumption of the Dimensity 820 is lower than that of 765G. And the speed is faster while the delay is smaller.
In addition, the Dimensity 820 supports MediaTek Imagiq 5.0 image processing technology. It uses 4-core HDR-ISP, supports up to 80MP multi-camera combination, and can shoot multiple frames of 4K HDR video. This SoC comes with the exclusive MediaTek MiraVision image quality engine, which supports a maximum screen refresh rate of 120Hz and HDR10+.
