MediaTek unveiled the Dimensity 820 chipset, a extra highly effective model of the Dimensity 800. Compared to the previous chip, the brand new model will increase CPU and GPU efficiency and improves the 5G connectivity.
This continues to be a 7nm chip with 4 Cortex-A76 and 4 A55 cores. The distinction is that the massive A76 cores run at a higher clock velocity, 2.6GHz. Up to 16GB of LPDDR4x RAM may be related.
The Mali-G57 GPU gained a further core, now as much as 5. This ought to carry video games nearer to the 120Hz refresh charge that’s supported by the chip (when paired with the suitable show panel, after all). It’s not fairly a gaming cellphone chipset just like the Dimensity 1000+, however might be a strong alternative for mid-rangers. Anyway, the decision continues to be capped at 1080p+.
The modem was upgraded to attach two SIM playing cards to a 5G community (full with VoNR assist). Heres a desk to summarize the variations between the 2 mid-range 5G chipsets.

How does this examine to Qualcomms choices? Well be doing our personal exams as soon as the primary telephones with this chip launch, however for now we have now official numbers from MediaTek to take a look at. They examine the 820 in opposition to the older Snapdragon 765G reasonably than the 768G, which boasts clock velocity will increase of its personal.
Dimensity 820 vs. Snapdragon 765G: Geekbench 4.2 GFX Manhattan 3.0 5G energy utilization NPU
Anyway, Geekbench 4.2 exhibits higher CPU efficiency (+7% single core, +37% multi-core), whereas the GPU managed a 33% higher body charge in GFXBench Manhattan 3.0. The firm can also be promising decrease energy utilization for 5G and triple the NPU efficiency. Again, these are official quantity from MediaTek, so look forward to an unbiased comparability (particularly in opposition to the S768G).
Xiaomi is seemingly first in line to make use of the brand new MediaTek Dimensity 820, whether or not its the Redmi Okay30i or the Redmi Note 10 (which we noticed operating Geekbench).
