MediaTek Dimensity 1000: Octa-core 7nm processor with integrated 5G modem

MediaTek, as promised, today announced its first processor with a built-in 5G modem.


The new product was called Dimensity 1000 and this is the flagshipeight-core SoC built on a 7-nanometer process technology. The chipset uses four powerful Cortex-A77 cores with a maximum clock speed of 2.6 GHz and four energy-efficient Cortex-A55 cores with a clock speed 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 is responsible for processing the AI ​​function, which is twice as productive as the previous version (4.5 million operations per second).

MediaTek Dimensity 1000 comes withbuilt-in 5G modem. It supports both standalone and non-standalone network architectures (SA/NSA) and can also operate on previous generation networks starting with 2G. The maximum download speed in sub-6GHz networks reaches 4.7 Gbit/s, and the data transfer speed is 2.5 Gbit/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.
