MediaTek has just unveiled its first 6nm chipsets – the Dimensity 1200 and 1100. They are not only the first 6nm chipsets but they are also the first to use the Cortex-A78 core.

mediatek-dimensity-1200-and-1100-2The Dimensity 1200 is the more premium of the two. It has a 1+3+4 CPU configuration with an A78 core running at 3.0GHz, three additional A78 cores at 2.6GHz, and four power-efficient A55 cores at 2.0GHz.

The Dimensity 1100, on the other hand, has four Cortex-A78 cores running at 2.6GHz. Unlike its stronger sibling, the Dimensity 1100 doesn’t have a prime core though.

Both SoCs have an edge over the Dimensity 1000+ in both single and multi-core performance. The Dimensity 1000+ used an older A77 core clocked at 2.6GHz. Comparing the older chipset with the A78 core at 3.0GHz of the Dimensity 1200, the new chipset is 20% faster with overall CPU performance up by 22% and power efficiency up by 25%.

Both the Dimensity 1200 and 1100 use the Mali-G77 with 9 cores for both chips. This is the same as its fellow Dimensity 1000-series cousins. AV1 video now has hardware acceleration though.

The Dimensity 1200 supports up to 168Hz displays and its 5-core ISP handles up to 200MP camera sensors. It also has staggered HDR support for 4K videos with a dynamic range of up to 40%.

The MediaTek Dimensity 1200 and 1100 chips are expected to power phones from realme, Xiaomi, vivo, and OPPO with phones expected by the end of March – beginning of April.
