- The Mediatek Dimensity 7000 chipset’s specs have leaked online.
- This is shaping up to be a budget-tier processor rather than an SoC for affordable flagships.
Mediatek has just announced the Dimensity 9000, and the company is positioning this processor as its first premium flagship chipset. This isn’t the only SoC Mediatek is said to be working on though, as we previously heard about the Dimensity 7000 as well.
Now, frequent tipster Digital Chat Station has issued a few purported Dimensity 7000 specs on Weibo. The leaker asserts that the new processor has a 5nm TSMC design, along with four Cortex-A78 CPU cores (at 2.75 GHz) and four Cortex-A55 CPU cores (at 2GHz).
This new chipset is also tipped to offer a Mali-G510 MC6 GPU, which is Arm’s latest mid-range graphics part. The Mali-G510 is positioned as a follow-up to the Mali-G57 that was found in phones like the Poco M4 Pro, Samsung Galaxy A22 5G, and Motorola Edge 20 Lite. In fact, Arm claimed that the new GPU offers a 100% performance boost and 22% efficiency gain over the Mali-G57.
So between the use of previous generation CPU cores and distinctly mid-range graphics hardware, it looks like the Dimensity 7000 is more of a budget-focused processor than an upper mid-range effort. By comparison, the Dimensity 1100 which arrived in phones this year packs a very similar CPU setup and a flagship-level Mali-G77 MP9 GPU. In saying so, this new processor would still be a welcome boost over Mediatek’s current non-flagship SoCs.
