Recently, MediaTek officially announced that it will hold a new product launch conference on January 20 with the theme of “Simbio·Senses”, officially launching the new series of Dimensity chips. It will bring a new and upgraded experience. This morning, we learned that the announced chip will be the upgraded model of the MediaTek Dimensity 1000 series – Dimensity 1100.
As a Weibo blogger said, the Dimensity 1100 is a down-converted peripheral version of Dimensity 1200. It is based on a 6nm process and has an octa-core architecture of 6nm + 4*A78 + 4*A55. Compared with the Dimensity 1200, the Dimensity 1100 is mainly clocked down to 2.6GHz±, GPU is not overclocked, and APU is slightly worse.
In addition, the Dimensity 1100 also supports up to 108MP± ISP, and can adapt to FHD+144Hz refresh rate screens. I also supports UFS 3.1 and LPDDR4x storage specifications.
Regarding the Dimensity 1100 chip, this is the first time it appears. Combined with its parameters, this chip should be positioned in the mid-range market.
In addition to the Snapdragon 888 chip, the upcoming Redmi K40 standard version is likely to be equipped with MediaTek Dimensity chips, maybe this Dimensity 1100.
However, there will be another chip from MediaTek. The so-called Dimensity 2000 will be based on a 5nm process. It has already received orders for a number of China-based smartphone manufacturers. And the first models with it on board will hit the market in the first half of this year.
It is worth noting that due to the late launch of Dimensity 2000, it is expected that new architecture and features such as X2, A79, and G79 will be adopted. They can bring more powerful performance in terms of overall experience and battery life.
MediaTek has now booked TSMC a monthly 5nm process capacity of at least 20,000 pieces to build Dimensity 2000 series flagship processors. Judging from the deployment of MediaTek, they will use the Dimensity 2000 series to benchmark Qualcomm’s flagship processors to impact the high-end market.
