Dimensity 1200 & Dimensity 1100, the new top-end chipsets with embedded 5G announced by MediaTek. Company’s first smartphone chips to use the TSMC’s 6nm process technology. The Dimensity 1200 has an octa-core CPU optimised for extreme performance with an ultra-core ARM Cortex-A78 clocked up to 3GHz, three ARM Cortex-A78 mega cores clocked up to 2.6GHz and four 2GHz ARM Cortex-A55 efficiency cores.
Dimensity 1100 has an octa-core CPU that includes four cores with up to 2.6GHz ARM Cortex-A78 and four 2GHz ARM Cortex-A55 efficiency cores, with the same nine-core ARM Mali-G77 GPU & six-core MediaTek APU 3.0. With True Dual SIM 5G (5G SA+5G SA), this chip support 5G standalone as well as non-standalone architectures.
Dimensity 1200 supports 200MP photos and has 5-core HDR-ISP, 4K HDR video capture, and 108MP camera support for the Dimensity 1100. AI camera features such as AI-Panorama Night Shot, AI Multi-Person Bokeh, AI Noise Reduction (AINR) and HDR capabilities are supported by both chipsets. Latest AI-enhanced video playback capabilities that include AI SDR-to-HDR are also supported by the chipsets.
Ultra-fast 168Hz refresh rates are supported by the Dimensity 1200 and the Dimensity 1100 support 144Hz refresh rates. Both include HyperEngine 3.0 gaming technology from MediaTek, which features 5G call and data rivalry for more secure connectivity, plus multi-touch touchscreen reactivity. In smartphone games and artificial reality applications, the latest chipsets also support ray tracing for more realistic graphics, alongside super hotspot power savings that allow consumers to go between charges for longer.
These have Bluetooth 5.2, support for better quality, reduced latency streaming audio, ultra-low latency real wireless stereo audio as well as LC3 encoding. TÜV Rheinland has been accredited by Dimensity 1200 for its 5G results, with testing addressing 72 real-world scenarios.
Dimensity 1200 vs Dimensity 1100 vs Dimensity 1000+ vs Exynos 1080
Compared to the previous generation, it offers up to 22 percent higher CPU speed and 25 percent more power-efficiency. The nine-core Mali-G77 GPU provides a 13 percent improvement in performance and a six-core MediaTek APU 3.0.
Dimensity 1000+ used older A77 core that clocked out at 2.6GHz for comparison. For ARM’s official estimates, these figures match up just right – a 3.0GHz A78 is 20% better than a 2.6GHz A77. Of course, that was for single-threaded performance, as only one core hits those frequencies in each chipset.
It does not have a prime core as such for the Dimensity 1100 – all four of its Cortex-A78 cores operates at 2.6GHz. However, 1100 has an architectural advantage even without higher clock speeds, so it should have an edge in both single and multi-core output over the Dimensity 1000+. And there is ancillary hardware, too.

At the end of Q1 and the beginning of Q2 this year, the first smartphones with the latest MediaTek Dimensity 1200 & Dimensity 1100 chipsets are expected to be released. Xiaomi, Vivo, OPPO and MediaTek all collaborated with MediaTek to use their phones with these chips. Other partners include ARM, China Mobile, Tetras.AI, ArcSoft, and Tencent Gaming. It has been confirmed among these realme will be one of the first to release a flagship smartphone with Dimensity 1200 SoC.
