The Taiwanese manufacturer will make a strong entry into the middle segment with MediaTek Dimensity 700 and Dimensity 800 chipsets. MediaTek recently introduced Dimensity 1200 and Dimensity 1100 chipsets for the upper segment. With this launch, it showed us that Snapdragon, which has a large share in chipset production for mobile devices, can shake its throne. The information published by DigiTimes confirms these.
MediaTek’s new chipsets will have a manufacturing process of less than 10 nanometers and 12 nanometers, according to DigiTimes. Their focus will be on power efficiency, 5G connectivity, multimedia and gaming performance. In other words, MediaTek will offer users higher performance with less power consumption with new chipsets. In addition, it will reduce the heat to minimum levels.
Dimensity 700 will have a 7 nanometer manufacturing process and will be introduced in April or June. Dimensity 800 chipset is expected to be introduced at MWC 2021, which will be held between 28 June – 1 July. (MWC may be postponed to a different date due to the 2021 pandemic process.)
It should be noted that the information about the new chipsets is not accurate. Because; In the third quarter of last year, reports have been published that the Dimensity 600 chipset will be introduced. But; The Dimensity 600 chipset has never been introduced.
MediaTek seems to continue to make big moves against Snapdragon. The new chipsets will offer us high performance at an affordable price. This is an indication that MediaTek chipsets can be seen frequently on smartphones. However, it is certain that Snapdragon will not allow this easily. Let’s see what will this cutthroat competition offer us?
