Dimensity 1100 specs
The Dimensity 1100 is based on TSMC’s 6nm process and integrates a 5G modem. The CPU consists of 4 2.6GHz A78 cores and 4 2GHz A55 cores. The GPU is the ARM G77 MC9. This chip supports dual-channel UFS 3.1 and is a downgrade of the Dimensity 1200 SoC. Furthermore, the Dimensity 1100 also supports up to 100MP lens, a 144Hz refresh rate, WiFi 6, and other features. As for the price, the first Dimensity 1100 model will cost more than 2500 yuan ($386).
The current flagship smartphone processor uses the 5nm process. This raises the question of how well the 6nm chips will perform. According to the information released by the Weibo tipster, Dimensity 1100’s AnTuTu running score reached about 580,000. It includes 160,000 for the CPU sub-test and 210,000 for the GPU sub-test. For comparison, most of the models currently equipped with the Dimensity 1000+ score around 520,000 points. Thus, the Dimensity 1100 has an increase of about 60,000 points. The tipster also said that the game power consumption of the Dimensity 1100 is lower than that of the Dimensity 1000+ and the frame rate is higher. So the actual performance is not bad.
