MediaTek, a Taiwanese chipmaker, is expected to produce its first 6nm G-series chip in the third quarter of this year. According to GizmoChina, the business plans to release a new processor based on the highly advanced 6nm manufacturing process to replace the Helio G96, already a popular chipset.
Two Cortex-A76 cores running at 2.0 GHz and six Cortex-A55 centres at 2.0 GHz will power the new G-series 6nm device. According to the new MediaTek chip’s performance capabilities, it can handle cameras with resolutions up to 108MP, 2K video recording at 30fps, and a few other metrics similar to the current G96 generation.
On March 1, MediaTek plans to release the Density 8100 chip, an overclocked version of the 8000. The 8100 is being released since the CPU frequencies of its predecessor were on the “conservative” side. The Density 8100 will contain an octa-core CPU with four 2.75 GHz Cortex-A78 performance cores. 4x Cortex-A78 (2.75 GHz) and 4x Cortex-A55 (2.0 GHz) CPU cores make up the Density 8000.
The MediaTek Dimensity 8000 achieved a score of 750,000 points on AnTuTu, surpassing Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 870, while the Density 8100 is likely to achieve even higher results. According to reports, MediaTek’s initial 6nm processor would not support 5G network connectivity. Google, a Chinese phone manufacturer, has also been mentioned as the first to use the Next-G chip. We’ll have to wait for more information on the product from official sources for the time being.
