After the announcement with theDimensions 9000 senior in a completely new production process - rumors are circulating about one of the intermediate models that will accompany it and will be based on the current leading production process in the market
The shortage of chips is not moving anywhere, but fortunately the pace of technological progress in the field is not slowing down and even manages to surprise us positively - when it seems that a manufacturing process that was reserved for the most advanced mobile chips this year will become the basis for much more popular and mass processing chips.
According to reports in the Chinese network Weibo, Mediatek plans to launch chip Named Dimensity 7000 next to its flagship product, based on TSMC's manufacturing process at 5nm for the first time (this is after it adopted the N6, or 6nm process, but its senior Dimensity models for 2021). There is almost no technical detail about the chip that is intended to be the successor to the Dimensity 1200, but there is a general claim that the company is aiming for a level of performance that is somewhere between theSnapdragon 888-to-Snapdragon 870 - which would not be bad at all for mid-range devices in 2022, if indeed we can see the product end up on smartphones that cost $ 400 or less.
With the required use of the modern ARMv9 command set, one can try and predict that the Dimensity 7000 will include an array of four large Cortex-A710 cores and another array of cost-effective four Cortex-A510 cores, at operating frequencies of 2.5GHz or less and 1.8GHz or less probably (Depending on the frequencies at which these cores operate in Dimensity 9000), and with an up-to-date built-in graphics core from the company ARM - either from the Mali-G510 family for the mid-range market, or perhaps from the senior Mali-G710 family but with less than ten processing clusters offered in the leading model. You can also expect a 5G-enabled mobile model to be built into the same case chip, In addition to hoping that at least some of the promising innovations of the chip developer in the field of image processing and computational learning acceleration will also permeate this reduced price level.
It is likely that-Mediatek There will be a few more chips for the year ahead beyond the one officially announced and the one rumored to be talking about in this article - we hope that all of them without exception will be based on advanced and efficient production processes at 5nm or 4nm because this strategy has proven itself great for the actress Taiwanese so far.
updating: Another report from China provides various data for the Dimensity 7000 - with four powerful cores at an operating frequency of up to 2.75GHz and four cost-effective cores at a frequency of up to 2GHz that are higher than the operating frequency of the cores of this category in Dimensity 9000. However, at the same time it seems that according to this information ARMv8 cores will be used. Will be based on the Cortex-A78 architecture and the cost-effective cores on the Cortex-A55 architecture, while the senior model uses (first) more recent cores from the ARMv9 era. In addition, there is a claim for the use of a Mali-G510 MC6 graphics core, i.e. from the modern midrange architecture of ARM With six processing clusters, compared to the core from the senior Mali-G710 architecture with ten processing clusters inDimensions 9000
Is the fresh information correct and accurate, or are we expecting a considerable period of rumors and guesses that will not always match each other? We will continue to follow and update.
