MediaTek Dimensity 8100:

Over the last few years, Snapdragon is leading in the mobiles chip market, but in 2020 Mediatek launched Mediatek Dimensity Series and we’ve seen some amazing chipsets like MediaTek Dimensity 1000, MediaTek Dimensity 1100 that was launched in Poco X3 GT, MediaTek Dimensity 1200 that was launched in Poco F3 GT and many more smartphones. Now we have the full specs, and full complete details of the MediaTek Dimensity 8100, let’s start off with the benchmarks.

AnTuTu 9:

CPU 197563
GPU 345470
Memory 159037
UX 168160
Total score 841074

MediaTek Dimensity 8100 shows one of the best Antutu 9 scores. We can see the big jump in GPU performance. The total performance of the GPU is 345470, which is a bit faster than the Snapdragon 888. The CPU also shows one of the best scores. It is 197563 which Is a bit slower than the Snapdragon 888 and the Kirin 9000. The memory scores also show a significant boost. MediaTek Dimensity 8100 memory is faster than MediaTek Dimensity 1200, Snapdragon 888, Kirin 9000, and The Apple A15 Bionic. The Ux is also showing one of the best performances. It is 168160, which is faster than MediaTek Dimensity 1200, Snapdragon 888, Kirin 9000, and The Apple A15 Bionic. MediaTek Dimensity 8100 total scores are above 841074. It will depend on which smartphones manufacturers use this chipset with which type of ram. MediaTek Dimensity 8100 is considerably gaining a performance boost and beating every processor in the flagship category. This detail is based on leaks I will refresh with new data when we have more accurate data.


Architecture 4x 2.85 GHz – Cortex-A78
4x 2 GHz – Cortex-A55
Cores 8
Frequency 2850 MHz
Instruction set ARMv8.2-A
Process 5 nanometers

MediaTek Dimensity 8100 lunched with the Big 4 cores of Cortex-A78 which is ultra-high performance cores that is clocked on 2.85 GHz. The other 4 cores are based on Cortex-A55 which is power efficiency cores. There is a little disappointment that why they haven’t used the Cortex X1 or X2. But the Cortex-A78 also has the best speeds and latest set instruction architecture. There are a total of 8 cores with a boost clock of 2.85GHz. MediaTek Dimensity 8100 has the latest set instruction architecture. It is not considered fast but it is strong enough to beat some of the latest and power-full Chipsets. MediaTek Dimensity 8100 is fabricated on 5Nm. This means MediaTek Dimensity 8100 will be power efficient and will consume less battery and will produce less heat. This processor is faster than the Snapdragon 888 Plus, Exynos 2100, kirin 9000, Apple A14 Bionic.


GPU name Mali-G610 MC6
Architecture Valhall 3
Vulkan version 1.1
OpenCL version 2.0
DirectX version 12

 MediaTek Dimensity 8100 has a new architecture-based GPU. Valhal 3 is the new architecture that they are using in the MediaTek Dimensity 8100. The GPU is also manufactured using the 5Nm technology. Which means it will also be power efficient. The name of the GPU is Mali-G610 MC6. This is the fastest GPU in this lineup. The Dimensity 8100 upgrades the gaming experience with an octa-core CPU sporting speeds of up to 2.85GHz, plus the latest Arm Mali-G610 MC6 graphics, allowing high frame rate gaming for extended periods in top titles.


Memory type LPDDR5
Memory frequency 3200 MHz
Bus 4x 16 Bit

 MediaTek Dimensity 8100 uses the new LPDDR5 ram with a memory frequency of 3200 MHz and uses the bus of 4×16. The ram may be changed according to the smartphone manufacturers. Samsung is not going to use this processor but many others will like XIAOMI, REALME, VIVO, etc. The memory frequency is also going to be changed according to the smartphone manufacturers.


Neural processor (NPU) Yes
Storage type UFS 3.1
Max display resolution 2960 x 1440
Max camera resolution 1x 200MP
Video capture 4K at 60FPS
Video playback 4K at 60FPS

MediaTek Dimensity 8100 has its own neural processor which is fast with AI calculations. MediaTek Dimensity 8100 uses the UFS 3.1 which is fast. This gives you fast read and writes speeds.

MediaTek Dimensity 8100 has the maximum display support of QUAD HD+ and can support the 144Hz refresh rate with the super Amoled. MediaTek Dimensity 8100 is going to be very aggressive when it comes to a camera support. It supports a camera of up to 200MP. Luckily Samsung is working on a 200MP camera sensor, which means next year smartphones going to implant this chipset with the 200MP camera. The video capture is kept on 4k at 60FPS and the video playback is also 4k at 60FPS. There is no 8k support on this MediaTek Dimensity 8100.


5G support Yes
Wi-Fi 6
Bluetooth 5.3

MediaTek Dimensity 8100 has 5G support. The MediaTek Dimensity 8100 also comes with the wifi 6 and the Bluetooth version of 5.3 which is the latest version. This will give you better signals and better speeds. MediaTek Dimensity 8100 is using the hyper engine 5.0 which takes 5G to the next level. This give a boost to the 5G in the MediaTek Dimensity 8100.

Gaming Experience:

The gaming experience on this chipset is going to be a little faster than the MediaTek Dimensity 8000. This chipset is combined with the 4 Big A78 cores, which boosts the performance. With 4 big Cortex A-78 cores, there is also going to be a few issues of heating. The frequency of this chipset is 2.85GHz, which is fast for long-term gaming. This chipset also supports the LPDDR5 ram. This means there will be no issues with using this chipset on a long-term gaming session. This chipset also supports a 144Hz refresh rate. This will help in smooth performance with low latency. This chipset is can support PUBG MOBILE at 90FPS, this is because of the scores of the GPU.
