MediaTek is set to release a new sub-premium chipset, the Dimensity 7000, and a new leak has now revealed details of the SoC ahead of launch. Specs look impressive, with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 870 tipped to be the new chipset's obvious rival.

MediaTek is set to launch two new chipsets for the flagship and mid-range segments. While the Dimensity 9000 is the star of the show, the Dimensity 7000 may well be the more attractive chipset, and details of the SoC's core configuration have now been revealed.

As leaked by Digital Chat Station, the MediaTek Dimensity 7000 will be built on TSMC's 5nm node, likely the same node underpinning Apple A15 Bionic. The Dimensity 7000 is tipped to feature four Cortex-A78 cores clocked at 2.75 GHz, and four Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.0 GHz. This promises better performance than the Dimensity 1200 which uses a similar configuration but with slightly lower-clocked cores on average. On the GPU end, the Dimensity 7000 is tipped to feature ARM's Mali-G510 MC6.

Digital Chat Station purports that the Dimensity 7000 will wage war on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 870. Considering the core configurations of the two chipsets and the fact that the lesser Dimensity 1200 already competes well with the Snapdragon 870 on the CPU end, the Dimensity 7000 is more likely to find better competition with whatever chipset Qualcomm releases as a direct successor to the Snapdragon 870.

Buy the Snapdragon 870-powered Poco F3 on Amazon.
