Not a single Qualcomm platform has this – He is better than VP9
Today MediaTek decided to recall another important feature of its top-end platform. The fact is that Dimensity 1000 is the first and at the moment, apparently, the only single-chip system for smartphones with support for the AV1 codec. AV1 is the successor to VP9, bypassing the latter in compression efficiency by 30-40% or more.
A recent MediaTek press release tells us that the Dimensity 1000 will support YouTube videos using the AV1 codec. The capabilities of Dimensity 1000, in this case, are limited to 4K resolution at 60 fps, which is more than enough for smartphones. Using AV1 will allow the YouTube application to use fewer hardware resources, which will increase the device’s autonomy.
