Mediatek teased a Dimensity 8000 platform back in December, and reports were it is going to be manufactured on the 5nm process by TSMC. The chip is almost ready to launch, and now leakster Digital Chat Station revealed it will be named Dimensity 8100 when it arrives in March.
The Dimensity 8100 will have an octa-core CPU, with the four Cortex-A78 performance cores clocked at 2.75 GHz. The GPU will be Mali-G510, developed by Arm and is yet to appear in any SoC.
The platform is likely to arrive as a successor of the Dimensity 1100 because it will be a step down from the Dimensity 9000, Mediatek’s true flagship platform. Interestingly enough, this new chip was reportedly called Dimensity 7000 at first, so hopefully, this will be the last renaming before the product goes live next month.
