Dimensity 8000 series

Elevating “premium” to new dimensions, our incredible new 5G smartphone chips – Dimensity 8100 & 8000 are built using the highly advanced TSMC N5 (5nm-class) production process and use a wealth of the Dimensity 9000’s groundbreaking technology world-firsts in its design. Here’s a roundup of the best features you get when your smartphone has an 8000 Series chip in charge:

1. Better Battery Life with 5nm-class Chip Design

The MediaTek Dimensity 8100 & 8000 are built using the highly advanced TSMC N5 (5nm-class) chip production process, giving users exceptional power-efficiency and longer battery life. For example, it gives over 25% better CPU power-efficiency vs 6nm-class Dimensity chips.

2. Best-in-class high frame rate (HFR) gaming experience

Four Arm Cortex-A78 super cores offer speeds of up to 2.85GHz in the Dimensity 8100, and 2.75GHz in the Dimensity 8000, within its octa-core CPU. This is combined with a powerful Arm Mali-G610 MC6 graphics core, which sees the Dimensity 8100 give an extra 20% speed boost over the 8000, plus the latest MediaTek HyperEngine 5.0 gaming technologies to provide further whole-smartphone optimizations for gaming.

3. MediaTek Imagiq 780

Borrowing from the Dimensity 9000’s technology arsenal, the Imagiq ISP is clocked at 5Gpixel/s to give the most impressive HDR photo & video capture in its class. It’s capable of supporting two cameras recording simultaneously, with HDR capture snatching three exposures per frame for the most accurate results. Being able to record two cameras at once means you can record from and back cameras together, or two different views at the same time, such as standard and wide.

4. MediaTek APU 580

Featuring a design that maximizes efficiency at every pipeline step, our 5th generation AI processor offers class-leading power-effective performance in a wide variety of AI tasks such as AI-multimedia, AI-camera, and social video experiences. The upgrades are considerable, as the Dimensity 8100 and 8000 produce impressive 2.75X and 2.5X speed boosts respectively over previous generation Dimensity chips with APU 3.0.

5. MediaTek MiraVision 780

MediaTek’s MiraVision 780 provides the latest multimedia standards including CUVA HDR-vivid certification for the Chinese market, support for the very latest HDR10+ Adaptive content, plus hardware-based AV1 video decoding of streaming media up to 4K resolution for better power efficiency.

MediaTek Intelligent Display Sync 2.0 is also available, providing the fastest display refresh rates only when its needed most, then reducing speed to save power when the content is not active.

6. Ultra-fast refresh rate displays

Both the Dimensity 8100 and 8000 support Full HD+ displays with ultra-fast refresh rates up to 168Hz, making an ideal match for gamers that need the most responsive devices. For brands that want to differentiate further, the Dimensity 8100 also offers higher resolution WHQD+ display support up to a fast 120Hz.

7. 3GPP Release-16 5G Smartphone Modem

Both the Dimensity 8100 and 8000 offer unmatched 5G technologies with an in-chip modem that is built to meet the latest 3GPP Release-16 standard. It includes up to 4.7Gbps downlink performance (sub-6GHz), 5G+5G Dual SIM Dual Standby and our latest 5G UltraSave 2.0 power-saving enhancement suite that means you can leave 5G switched on all day and not worry about battery.

8. Latest Connectivity, Location & Wireless Audio

Beyond 5G, the Dimensity 8100 and 8000 feature the latest Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity, and GNSS location technologies.

Wi-Fi connections are boosted with MediaTek Wi-Fi Fast Path technology, while a Wi-Fi/Bluetooth hybrid coexistence design ensures reliable connectivity for peripherals as well as internet. The latest Bluetooth LE Audio technology with Dual-Link True Wireless Stereo Audio standard is ready to give earbuds the most reliable and lowest latency wireless connections.
