MediaTek has been the top manufacturer for chipsets since a long time now. The Dimensity 720, 800 and 1000 series have already amazed its users, now the new MediaTek 700 chipset is all set to rule over the market.

The MediaTek 700 chip includes two high-performance ARM Cortex-A76 cores at a maximum clock speed of 2.2GHz, along with six Cortex-A55 cores at 2.0GHz. It is also capable of being paired with up to 12GB of LPDDR4x RAM at a frequency of 2,133MHz and UFS 2.2 two-lane storage, along with up to 1Gbps transfer speeds.

The Dimensity 700 SoC also includes multiple voice assistant support including Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Baidu DuerOS, among others. There is also support for Voice over New Radio (VoNR) services.

Alongside the Dimensity 700, MediaTek at its Executive Summit announced the MT8192 and MT8195 SoCs for Chromebooks. The 7nm MT8192 is specifically designed for mainstream Chromebook models, while the 6nm MT8195 is targeted at premium versions. Both chipsets come with an AI processing unit (APU) to support a range of voice- and vision-based apps. The APU is designed to process voice ID recognition and voice control, speech and image recognition, speech to text, live translation, object recognition, background removal, noise reduction, image and video segmentation, gesture control, and Google AR Core-based enhancements.

The Dimensity 700 is limited to 1080p resolution for video capture, while the 720 goes up to 4K, which makes it more suitable for mid-rangers. For photos, the new chip can handle cameras up to 64MP and features multi-frame noise reduction and several AI enhancements.

Speaking of AI, multiple voice assistants can run on the chip, including the ones from Google, Amazon, Alibaba, Baidu and Tencent.

MediaTek also added two chipsets meant for Chromebooks to its stable, the MT8195 and MT8192. The MT8195 is the more advanced option, using TSMC’s 6 nm process and featuring four of the latest Cortex-A78 cores in addition to four A55 cores.

There’s also a 5-core Mali-G57 and an APU capable of 4 TOPS, which can be used for voice and image recognition (including ultra-low power voice wake-up). Dolby Vision, 7.1 surround sound and AV1 decoding are all supported.

The MT8192 is built on the older 7nm process and uses four A76 cores, which are two generations old now. The APU is slower too, rated at 2.4 TOPS. The GPU is the same, a 5-core Mali-G57, which can drive a 1440p displays at 60 Hz or a 1080p display at 120 Hz. Both chips feature PCIe Gen 3 and UBS 3.2 Gen 1 connectivity.

The Dimensity 700 5G-integrated SoC is the first mainstream smartphone 5G chip to ensure everyone can benefit from essential connectivity features 5G Carrier Aggregation (2CC 5G-CA) and Dual 5G SIM, while also being incredibly power efficient to ensure you’re always connected.
