MediaTek launched a new and powerful MediaTek Dimensity 6020 processor some time back and this is considered a renewed version of the MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor that powers budget segment devices. However, launched more than 2 years after MediaTek Dimensity 700, MediaTek Dimensity 6020 has some enhanced and better features, and here, let’s check them out to get a better idea of the platform:

MediaTek Dimensity 6020 vs MediaTek Dimensity 700:

Although a lot of people will tell you that MediaTek Dimensity 6020 and MediaTek Dimensity 700 have no differences at all, you should not believe it. Of course, the major difference is the MediaTek HyperEngine 3.0 Lite gaming enhancement that is a part of MediaTek Dimensity 6020 but is absent in MediaTek Dimensity 700.

Besides, MediaTek Dimensity 6020 offers you the option to get a 120Hz display refresh rate in the devices and up to 16GB RAM support. Against this, the max display refresh rate in MediaTek Dimensity 700 is limited to 90Hz and it supports up to 12GB RAM.
