The AV1 video codec will be supported by Qualcomm’s next flagship SoC

The open-video codec AV1 has had a sluggish adoption rate, with large video providers waiting for more widespread device compatibility. Things may change in the coming months, as both consumer electronics firms and chipset manufacturers prepare to release new hardware that supports native AV1 decoding.

Qualcomm is one of the most well-known

The protocol has received through a person who has seen the chip’s spec sheets that Qualcomm intends to include AV1 functionality in its forthcoming flagship Snapdragon mobile CPU.

The processor, internally known as SM8550, is scheduled to be released towards the end of this year at the earliest, which means no phones powered by it will be available until 2023.

The chip’s Adreno video-processing unit will provide native AV1 decoding, which has never been supplied by Qualcomm before.

That’s assuming no substantial modifications, however, our source warns that things might change before the chip is released.

Qualcomm Mobile GM Alex Katouzian previously told AnandTech that due to the company’s extensive planning cycles, it hasn’t been able to add AV1 functionality to its existing processors, but that it will “in time.”

Qualcomm isn’t the only firm that does this

looking to expand AV1 hardware support The open-video format has been progressively gaining traction since its initial introduction in 2018.

Last month, Samsung stated that its new Exynos 2200 processor “has a power-efficient AV1 decoder that allows for extended playback duration.”

Both MediaTek and Broadcom have released chipsets that enable AV1 decoding.

Google is preparing to release a new version of their Chromecast that includes a Google TV streaming adaptor that can play AV1 feeds.

Last year, Google made Android Av 1 Support a requirement for its Android TV platform, which pushed TV and streaming device vendors to incorporate it into their sets.

Google’s attempt to expand AV1 support has taken two forms, with YouTube now mandating device manufacturers to incorporate AV1 in order to access 4K broadcasts.

The latter was a result of a battle between Roku and Google. The two firms didn’t say how they worked out their issues, but I wouldn’t be shocked if Roku included AV1 compatibility in all-new 4K-capable devices this autumn.

According to one industry source, the bulk of streaming devices coming out this year will support AV1.

It’s about time AV1 gained some traction

Insiders in the industry have long been irritated by AV1’s glacial growth, particularly considering the codec’s strong backing on paper.

The Alliance for Open Media, a 6-year-old industry group that comprises all of the FAANG businesses, as well as ARM, AMD, Microsoft, Mozilla, and others, produced AV1.

Netflix has been the only big streaming provider to accept AV1 thus far, with the exception of YouTube.

Disney, which is linked to the AOM through Hulu, is thought to be in the early stages of planning.

HBO Max isn’t utilising it, either, according to a WarnerMedia representative, who said the company’s product team was “actively studying and monitoring it and other codecs technologies as they arise.”

Even Snap, which recently joined the partnership, hasn’t set a date for when AV1 will be used.

MediaTek Dimensity 8100 Chipset Released with TSMC 5nm process

The MediaTek Dimensity 9000 domestic debut took place in December of last year, towards the conclusion of MediaTek’s formal declaration that the Dimensity 8000 series will be released soon. Despite the fact that there is no new terminal with this processor on the market yet, it is expected to release a newer version of Dimensity 8100 in the model, according to the current news.

Today, Digital Chat Station reported that MediaTek would host a press conference on March 1 to introduce the Dimensity 8100, a high-frequency variant of the Dimensity 8000. Because of the time issue, several producers of the original Dimensity 8000 new machine have replaced it with the Dimensity 8100, which has superior processor data. The quickest new machine will be published next month.

Furthermore, the blogger stated that the Dimensity 8100 employs TSMC’s 5nm process and that the energy efficiency ratio can make Samsung’s node process hammer burst. The Dimensity 8000’s CPU is made up of four 2.75GHz A78 and four 2.0GHz A55 processors, while the GPU is Mali-G510 MC6. Advanced features include FHD+ 168Hz or QHD + 120Hz screen compatibility, as well as LPDDR5 + UFS 3.1 support. So, who is going to be the first maker and model?

Dimensity 9000 was MediaTek’s flagship chipset, manufactured using TSMC’s 4nm technology.

The Dimensity 9000 is MediaTek’s next flagship smartphone processor, and it is the company’s most powerful chip to date, hoping to challenge with leading CPUs from Qualcomm and Samsung.

Dimensity 9000 is MediaTek's

The MediaTek Dimensity 9000 is the world’s first chipset to be manufactured using TSMC’s 4nm process and is also the first to use ARM’s new v9 architecture. Not only that it’s also the first chipset announced with ARM’s new core designs. It comes with a single CortexX2 performance core clocked at 3.05 GHz, three CortexA710 cores at 2.85 GHz and four CortexA510 efficiency cores at 1.8 GHz. For graphics, the chipset is equipped with an Arm MaliG710 with 10 cores. There’s also MediaTek’s fifth-generation APU with a total of six cores for AI processing. The company claims to offer four times the performance and energy efficiency of its previous generation.

The Dimensity 9000 will support LPDDR5x memory with bandwidths of up to 7,500 Mb / s. It would also be capable of handling displays with a refresh rate of up to 180Hz at FHD + resolutions. As for the photographic department, the chipset supports the first 18-bit image signal processor, which offers the ability to capture 4K HDR videos using up to three cameras simultaneously or photos using up to 320 sensors MP.

Dimensity 9000 is MediaTek's

For connectivity, the Dimensity 9000 supports WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3. There is no built-in modem with mmWave 5G support, but the company claims it supports 3CC carrier aggregation for sub6HZ. 5G with data rates up to 7 Gbit / s. Devices powered by this new Dimensity The SoC 9000 should be available on the market from the first quarter of 2022. To know for sure how the chipset behaves, you will have to wait to test a real smartphone powered by this new SoC. The launch of the flagship MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chipset comes as the Taiwan-based company recorded impressive results in 2020 and 2021 and is now the world’s largest smartphone chipset maker with around 40% market share. It is also expected to grow by 28% in the 5G SoC market.

The specs for Qualcomm snapdragon 898 and MediaTek Dimensity 2000 have been leaked.

 Later this year, the Qualcomm snapdragon 898 and mediaTek Dimensity 2000 flagship chipsets are scheduled to be released.

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 898 processor is likely to be unveiled at its annual summit in December. According to rumours, the chipset will power the majority of Android flagships in 2022, starting with the Galaxy S22. Similarly, the Dimensity 2000 chipset is reported to be in the works at MediaTek. Now, a reliable Weibo source has revealed some further details about the chipsets, hinting at what’s to come. The MediaTek Dimensity 2000 chipset’s release date is currently unknown, but we may anticipate it to arrive later this year or early next year.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 898

The Snapdragon 898 would have an octa-core CPU with a cortex-X3 based main core clocked at 3.0GHz and 3x Cortex-A710 performance cores clocked at 2.5GHz. The cores based on the energy-efficient Cortex-A510 will be clocked at 1.79 GHz. To manage graphic demands, the chipset will be combined with the Adreno 730 GPU. What improvements it will offer over the Adreno 660, on the other hand, is yet to be seen.

MediaTek Dimensity 2000

Similarly, the Dimensity 2000 will have the same configuration as the Snapdragon 898, but the cluster of three performance cores will be clocked at 2.85GHz, which is significantly faster than the Snapdragon 898. For graphics, the chipset will be coupled with the Mali G710 MC10 GPU. The chipset will be built using TSMC’s 4nm manufacturing process, thus performance should be consistent and similar to the Snapdragon flagship SoCs. Once the chipset is formally revealed and made accessible to OEMs, we should expect companies like Redmi, Realme, OPPO, and others to line up phones.
