How Powerful Is the Dimensity 800 Processor?
A powerful processor for mid-range smartphones
The Dimensity 800 chipset is designed for those smartphones that want to foray into the 5G market but also don’t want to burn a hole through the pockets of its consumers. MediaTek’s Dimensity 800 chipset is a great option for mid-range smartphones that want good performance and a multi-camera setup.
The processor has 8 CPU cores of which 4 are Cortex A76 and 4 are Cortex-A55 cores, both of which are clocked at 2.0GHz. The Dimensity 800 is a 7nm processor, pretty much like the Dimensity 1000 and Dimensity 1000L. If one is to compare the Dimensity 800 with the previous Dimensity 700 series, you can observe that games and apps load 1.4 secs faster.
Operating up to 2GHz in the Dimensity 800, this indicates faster games, quicker app loading, and everything that needs power. This chip can switch between two sets of processor cores to maximize performance and battery life. For example, when playing a game the more powerful cores will be used to increase performance, whereas checking email will use the less powerful cores to maximize battery life.
The benchmark scores are about 28% faster in GPU and 11% faster in CPU performance. The former also assists in the video encoding and playback to reach 4K and at 30fps. Be it for daily smartphone usage or playing heavy games, the Dimensity 800 can definitely handle it.
