The Dimensity 9000, which is positioned as the flagship market, has just started commercial implementation. MediaTek officially released a new generation of Dimensity 8000 series for the high-end market today. The first batch includes Dimensity 8000 and Dimensity 8100.
The core specifications of the two are exactly the same. The only difference is that the latter has a higher frequency and is naturally more popular, a bit like the original Dimensity 1000 and Dimensity 1000+.
The MediaTek Dimensity brand was born in 2019, which is the first year of 5G commercial use, and soon formed four series of Dimensity 1000, Dimensity 900, Dimensity 800, and Dimensity 700, which completely covered the high, medium, and low-end market, 2020 In the third quarter of 2018, 45 million units were shipped, and the total shipments of 4G+5G chips ranked first in the world.
In 2021, the Dimensity 9000 series was born, and MediaTek ranked first in the world in terms of 4G+5G shipments for 6 consecutive quarters.
1. Performance and Energy Efficiency
The Dimensity 8000 series uses TSMC’s 5nm manufacturing process. The CPU is eight cores, including four A78s, four A55s, and 4MB L3 cache. The GPU is a six-core Mali-G610, and there is also a fifth generation. AI processor APU 580, including two performance cores and one general-purpose core.
In terms of frequency, the Dimensity 8000 CPU is 2.75GHz + 2.0GHz, the large core of the Dimensity 8100 is increased to 2.85GHz, the GPU frequency is increased by 20%, and the APU large core frequency is increased by 25%.
According to the official statement, the Dimensity 8100 is 12% higher in CPU multi-core performance, 44% higher in multi-core energy efficiency, 4% higher in GPU performance, 35% higher in energy efficiency, and 39% higher in APU AI energy efficiency benchmarks than competing products of the same level (Snapdragon 888). The background blur effect test performance is 62% higher and the energy efficiency is 72% higher.
The Dimensity 9000 smashed the Quartet in the Zurich AI Benchmark, and the running score exceeded one million for the first time, which was 77% higher than that of the Snapdragon 888. The Dimensity 8000 series will naturally not be weak.
In addition to performance, MediaTek has also been emphasizing the high energy efficiency of the Dimensity 9000 series, especially in games, and this time the Dimensity 8000 series is no exception.
According to official data, compared with competing products, the Dimensity 8100 has an average of 27% lower power consumption and 6 degrees lower temperature in moderate games, 24% and 3 degrees lower in moderate to severe games, and stable without frequency reduction in heavy games. , to ensure a continuous high frame rate.
In order to optimize the performance of games, the Dimensity 8000 series integrates the HyperEngine 5.0 optimization engine. First, it can intelligently control and reduce power consumption. Local dynamic rendering, intelligent resource scheduling, and intelligent frame stabilization are reduced by about 15%, 5%, and 5%, respectively. Reduce the jitter rate by 25%.
The second is the low-latency network. FastPath, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth dual-connection anti-jamming 2.0, and Smart Antenna 2.0 can optimize Wi-Fi latency by 44%, 68%, and 25%, respectively. The delay is 85%, and the online game delay does not exceed 100 milliseconds.
The third is free control and adjustment, supports 90/120Hz high brush, intelligent scheduling engine, and opens control function options to players.
2. Video photography
The Dimensity 8000 series integrates the seventh-generation DSP Imagiq 780, including three 14-bit ISPs, with a processing speed of 5 billion pixels per second.
Functionally, it can support up to 200 million pixel single camera, 32 million + 32 million + 16 million pixel triple camera, 4K60 HDR10+ video recording, support dual-camera HDR video simultaneous recording, front and rear dual cameras can be parallel, or rear dual cameras can be parallel. , and both support triple exposure.
Motion Unblur can accurately capture high-speed snapshots, AI recognizes moving subjects, and automatically determines the shutter speed.
AI-NR 2.0 noise reduction and AI anti-blur are specially optimized for night scene shooting, and the noise reduction effect is better than 64 frames of multi-frame noise reduction (MFNR).
In addition, it also brings full-featured HDR to the Android platform and supports 4K multi-exposure HDR video recording.
Once again, MediaTek emphasizes that the power consumption when taking pictures is also lower, 4K video recording is 30% lower than the competition, and the temperature can be 4 degrees lower.
In terms of display, the MiraVision 780 mobile display engine is integrated, which is only one grade lower than that of the Dimensity 9000. It supports WQHD resolution, 120Hz high refresh rate, high color accuracy DeltaE, HLG/HDR10/HDR10+ standard, 4K60 AV1 HDR video, and real-time screen dynamic frame rate. Adjustment, AI SDR-HDR display enhancement, full link HDR10+.
Among them, AI video quality enhancement can convert ordinary SDR video into HDR video, increasing the dynamic range by as much as 25.48%, which is almost comparable to the 29.50% bonus of native HDR.
The integrated 5G baseband of the Dimensity 8000 series supports the 3GPP R16 standard, supports 5G Sub-6GHz full-band network, 2CC CA dual-carrier aggregation technology, and the downlink speed is up to 4.7Gbps.
Of course, PowerSave 2.0 power-saving technology is indispensable. The power consumption of light load/signal connection is 32% lower than that of competing products, and the power consumption of high load/APP download is 41% lower. Other aspects include 2×2 Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.3/LE Audio, LPDDR5-6400 memory, and more.
In terms of terminal equipment, the Redmi K50 universe will launch the Dimensity 8100, and the realme GT Neo3 will also carry the 8100.
