In recent years we have known a large variety of disappointments from the Taiwanese chip developer Mediatek, with many models with confusing branding, in veteran manufacturing processes and with performance that in most cases are far behind compared to the alternative processing products from Qualcomm or even Samsung and Huawei. The situation has become so bleak that quite a few consumers have outright rejected any smart device that has been included chip Of the company, even when in some cases this meant savings of tens of percent compared to a device with similar characteristics based on chips Snapdragon Competing.
Despite all the past hardships that have placed the Mediatek In a tangible inferior position, the coming of the generation5G Gave the company an opportunity to start over and improve positions - with the new Dimensity family presenting performance and miraculously improved performance at competitive prices.
The availability of those new chips such as the Dimensity 1000L and Dimensity 820 focused on the Chinese market first and was therefore characterized by zero availability for Western consumers, but the positive reactions to the first models using these materials helped generate increased interest which should also increase the number of models available. In the near future we are expected to see an international expansion for the brand.
Now, with the announcement of chip New Dimensity 800U We are sadly recognizing the possible beginning of a new-old trend that characterized the negative period in Mediatek's history, with names that do not properly represent the capabilities behind the scenes. To date, six Dimensity chips have been launched with model numbers that have easily and relatively effectively illustrated the existing performance rating: the Dimensity 720 is the simplest and most modest in the family while the Dimensity 1000 (replaced with an improved Dimensity 1000 Plus version) is the leading flagship. The Dimensity 800U, on the other hand, includes specifications that are much more similar to the Dimensity 720 rather than the Dimensity 800 - thus quickly evoking memories of the past instead of helping us remain optimistic for a future where Mediatek's 5G products will be a decent replacement for chip Other around.
In the Dimensity 800U you will find eight processing cores in a production process of 7 nm, of which 2 powerful cores based on Cortex A76 architecture with a maximum frequency of 2.4GHz and six Cortex A55 cores cost-effective at a maximum frequency of 2GHz, plus a Mali-G57 MC3 graphics core and of course a modem With support for a pair of SIM cards in Dual Standby configuration. The operating frequency of the chip's leading processing cores is not bad at all and there is also support for fast UFS 5 storage and cost-effective dual-channel LPDDR2.2X memories with a maximum volume of up to 4GB, but it is worth mentioning that the original Dimensity 12 includes four powerful Cortex A800 cores and Mali-G76 core MC57 has a larger built-in graphics, so the best comparison point for the 4U model continues to be the more basic Dimensity 800 - even to me Mediatek Itself which states that the fresh product includes an improvement of about 11 percent in the overall processing performance and also an improvement of up to 28 percent in the graphics processing capabilities compared to the latter.
We will not object to seeing smart devices with Dimensity 800U chips launched in our districts, and hope that this will indeed happen towards the end of this year or early next year - but at the same time we hope that manufacturers and suppliers will be able to price the same models according to their actual processing capabilities. 800 and the Dimensity 820 which are numerically closer. what do you think? Let’s talk about it with others in the comments.
