Since MediaTek unveiled their Dimensity 9000 chipsets last year, it gained quite a popularity among smartphone enthusiasts. Now, MediaTek officially announced the launch of Dimensity 8000 and Dimensity 8100 chipset for upcoming smartphones. Powering several new 5G smartphones from Q2, here is our curated guide on everything there is to know about the new chipsets.
MediaTek Announces the Launch of Dimensity 8000 Series 5G Chipsets
The Dimensity 8000 Series 5G chipsets are based on TSMC’s 5nm architecture with an octa-core design. According to MediaTek, both the Dimensity 8000 and 8100 shares the same DNA from their predecessor the Dimensity 9000.
Even the company goes as far as stating the new chipsets as ‘little brother’ to the Dimensity 9000. But it still retains all the flagship-grade features along with state-of-the-art energy efficiency for a new era of 5G smartphones.
Both of the chipsets come with ARM Mali-G610 GPU, backed by MediaTek’s HyperEngine 5.0 gaming technology. The Dimensity 8000 comes with ARM Cortex-A78, with a clock speed of 2.75GHz. While the Dimensity 8100 has a slightly better ARM Cortex-A78 with a clock speed of 2.85GHz.

Bear in mind, both of the chipsets equips 4x Cortex-A55 with the core clock at 2.0GHz. Not to mention, it offers support for Quad-Channel LPDDR5 memory along with UFS 3.1 storage. Some other inclusions are Wi-Fi 6E, 5th Gen 580 APU, and Bluetooth 5.3.
The Dimensity 8000 series of chipsets also support a whopping 200 MP camera along with 4K/60 HDR10+ video recording. This is powered by a 5 gigapixels per second ISP (Image Signal Processor) enabling clearer HDR images/videos.
Further including, MediaTek’s 5G UltraSave 2.0 allows longer battery life with power efficiency for 5G networks. As of now, some of the most prominent OEMs including Realme, OnePlus, Oppo and Xiaomi have already confirmed the use of Dimensity 8000 series chipset for their upcoming smartphones. In fact, there is an alleged OnePlus Nord that might feature the latest Dimensity chipset as well.
Starting the first quarter of this year, there are going to be several new smartphones coming with the Dimensity 8000 series of chipsets. It’s just a matter of time before we get our hands on a smartphone to push the chip to its limits. So, let us know in the comment section below, what are your thoughts on Dimensity 8000 and 8100?
