Rumor | MediaTek's mid-range chipsets will upgrade to 5nm in 2022

MediaTek is currently believed to unveil an SoC based on an industry-leading 4 nanometer (nm) architecture in 2022. This would mean the OEM would skip the current top-end 5nm standard in the process. Now, the latest leak claims that it is destined for the Taiwanese chip-maker's sub-premium range next year instead.

The latest rumors on MediaTek's plans for 2022 revolve around the prospect of a potentially significant leap in its next-gen mobile flagship processor's specs compared to the existing Dimensity 1200 SoC. The Snapdragon 888 rival (on paper, in any case) is based on a 6nm process; however, its successor that is promised, the 2000, is touted to go directly to 4nm on its launch.

Should this be the case, it would obviously make the SoC a truly top-end product. Such leaks invite speculation as to what the OEM will do with its other, lower tiers of products, not to mention any 5nm silicon that might also be available to it. Now, the prolific tipster Digital Chat Station claims to shed light on both topics by linking the two.

This claim implies that immediate successors for the 1200 and its even more sub-flagship sibling the 1100 might upgrade to 5nm in 2022. They will allegedly be sourced from MediaTek's typical foundry partner TSMC, and may be aimed squarely at counterparts from Samsung that are also to be released in about a year from now, even though those rivals may be 4nm themselves.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
