MediaTek, as promised, today announced its first processor with a built-in 5G modem.
The novelty was called Dimensity 1000 and it is the flagshipeight-core SoC, built on a 7-nanometer process technology. The chipset uses four Cortex-A77 performance cores with a maximum clock speed of 2.6 GHz and four energy-efficient Cortex-A55 cores with a clock frequency of up to 2.0 GHz. The Mali-G77 accelerator is responsible for the graphics of the new product, and the APU 3.0 module, which is twice as much as the previous version (4.5 million operations per second), is responsible for processing the AI function.
MediaTek Dimensity 1000 comes withbuilt-in 5G modem. It supports autonomous and non-autonomous network architectures (SA / NSA), and can also work on previous generation networks starting with 2G. The maximum download speed in sub-6GHz networks reaches 4.7 Gb / s, and the data transfer rate is 2.5 Gb / s.
The processor also received support for cameras with several modules, LPDDR4x-1866 RAM up to 16 GB, displays with a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz, Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1+.
When to expect
The processor has already begun to supply smartphone manufacturers. The first devices based on this SoC will appear in the first half of 2020.</ p>
