MediaTek introduced new processors for smartphones and laptops
MediaTek has introduced a new mobile platform with support for 5G networks for mid-budget smartphones called the Dimensity 700. In addition, the vendor's range has been expanded with solutions for energy-efficient laptops - MediaTek MT8192 and MT8195 processors, the first devices based on which will debut this year.
The new mid-range chip Dimensity 700 is made using a 7-nm process technology and received two high-performance ARM Cortex-A76 cores with a clock speed of up to 2.2 GHz and six energy-efficient ARM Cortex-A55 (up to 2.0 GHz). The mobile platform was also equipped with a 5G modem with support for the proprietary UltraSave energy-saving technology, which dynamically adjusts the supply voltage depending on the quality of network coverage and the "weight" of the content.
The built-in graphics ARM Mali G57 MC2 (950 MHz) is responsible for the multimedia capabilities of the new product. The processor supports up to 12 GB of LPDDR4X RAM (2133 MHz) and UFS 2.2 drives, as well as 64-megapixel camera sensors and multi-frame noise reduction. The chip is compatible with 90-inch screens and supports various voice assistants, including Google Assistant.
As for laptop processors, the more advanced MT8195 is made using a 6-nm process technology and includes four Cortex-A78 and four Cortex-A55 cores, as well as a Mali-G57 graphics accelerator. It supports four-channel LPDDR4X memory with a frequency of 2133 MHz, the ability to simultaneously connect three displays, Dolby Vision and Surround Sound 7.1 technology, as well as the AV1 codec.
The younger 7nm model, called MT8192, received four Cortex-A78 cores and four Cortex-A55 cores. Integrated Mali-G57 graphics are compatible with 1440p @ 60Hz or 1080p @ 120Hz displays. Both chips support PCIe 3.0 and USB 3.2 Gen 1 interfaces.
Devices based on the MT8192 chip will go on sale in the second quarter of 2021, while laptops and tablets with the MT8195 processor will be released late next year.
