The designer of SoC MediaTek has long remained in the entry and mid-range niches, which has enabled it to gain a foothold in the market. Thanks to the emergence of 5G, it began to move upmarket thanks to its Dimensity ranges, which enabled it to garner market share, to the point to overtake the American giant Qualcomm.
After Dimensity 710, which can be found in some smartphones such as the OnePlus Nord 2 is a new family that is getting ready with the SoC Dimensity 1200 .
This could be one of the first on the market to benefit from a 4 nm engraving at TSMC and to use the new ARMv9 cores unveiled in the spring last.
The Chinese Digital Chat Station leaker again evokes the possible configuration of the SoC Dimensity 2000 which would consist of CPU of:
- 1 ARM Cortex-X2 core at 3 GHz
- 3 ARM Cortex-A cores 710
- 4 cores ARM Cortex-A 510
Besides the powerful core X2 capable of reaching 3 GHz, the great interest of the platform will relate to the use of economic cores A 510 in replacement of aging but still current A 55.
For the graphics part, MediaTek should use the new reference solution ARM Mali-G 710 which promises % of more performance compared to ARM Mali-G 78.
MediaTek’s SoC would therefore benefit from latest advances in terms of CPU and GPU, while still offering 5G compatibility which remains to be seen if it will offer 5G mmWave (millimeter bands) in addition to 5G sub-6 GHz.
The competitor Qualcomm could therefore be subject to greater pressure on its preferred territories, namely the large mid-range, the high-end and even the premium with the arrival of this new pu this mobile, especially since MediaTek could once again play the card of light customization of the SoC according to the needs of manufacturers to constitute a semi-custom solution.
