Yesterday we got to know the design & specifications of an upcoming 5G phone from Redmi & some sources have claimed that this is the Redmi Note 10. While the name is a mystery, we know that the SOC powering this device is the MediaTek Dimensity 820 which is not yet official. On May 18th, MediaTek is going to launch a new 5G Chipset so the Dimensity 820 might launch that day in China.
Today, Digital Chat Station shared the specifications of Dimensity 820 on his Weibo profile. Also, this upcoming 5G phone from Redmi was spotted on Geekbench, so the Geekbench scores of the Dimensity 820 are now here as well.
Talking about the specifications first, the MediaTek Dimenity 820 chipset has an octa-core CPU featuring 4x Cortex-A76 cores (Performance) clocked at 2.6GHz & 4x Cortex-A55 cores (Efficiency) clocked at 2.0GHz. There is Mali-G57 GPU & the Dimensity 820 chipset is built on the 7nm manufacturing process.
The closest competition to this chipset is the Kirin 820 from Huawei & Snapdragon 768G from Qualcomm, both of which are based on 7nm process & feature an integrated 5G modem.
The Geekbench scores of these three chipsets are not much different. In terms of the single-core performance, the Snapdragon 768G seems to be the better one among the three as it scores the highest. But, in case of the multi-core performance, the Dimensity 820 SOC beats the other two. The scores are extremely close when we compare the Dimensity 820 & Kirin 820.
It is worth mentioning that both Dimensity 820 & Kirin 820 have the same Mali-G57 GPU, although there might ve a difference in the frequency. Here is the core arrangement for each of the three chipsets –
- Dimensity 820 – 4x Cortex-A76 @ 2.6GHz + 4x Cortex-A55 @ 2.0GHz
- Kirin 820 – 1x Cortex-A76 @ 2.36GHz + 3x Cortex-A76 @ 2.22GHz + 4x Cortex-A55 @ 1.84GHz
- Snapdragon 768G – 1x Cortex-A76 @ 2.8GHz + 1x Cortex-A76 @ 2.4GHz + 6x Cortex-A55 @ 1.8GHz
Well, just a couple of days are now left for the launch of MediaTek Dimensity 820 chipset so let’s see what upgrades it brings over the Dimensity 800.
