The new flagship mobile processor MediaTek Dimensity 9200 is built on the ARMv9 architecture and is made using TSMC’s second generation 4nm process technology (N4P). It includes one high performance Cortex-X3 core running at 3.05 GHz, a triple-core ARM Immortalis-G715 video adapter with ray tracing support, and four energy-efficient Cortex-A510 cores running at 1.8 GHz. The chip supports LPDDR5X memory (at 8533 Mbps) and UFS 4.0 storage standard.
Support for the MediaTek Dimensity 9200 high-speed wireless Wi-Fi 7 is announced (although the development of the standard has not yet been completed). The 5G modem supports Sub-6 and mmWave connections, which is important for carriers in some countries, including the United States. Headphones and other audio devices can be connected using the Bluetooth 5.3 standard, which includes low-energy and high-quality lossless audio transmission.
Dimensity 9200 opens the door to the next generation of displays. It is capable of supporting a refresh rate of 240Hz for Full HD+ displays, 144Hz for WQHD+ displays, and at 60Hz it can run at an impressive 5K resolution. According to the company, the graphics performance of the novelty is 32% higher, but the leaked test result indicates 1.26 million points in AnTuTu compared to 1.12 million for smartphones with Dimensity 9000+.
MediaTek claims a 12% improvement in the single-core test and a 10% improvement in the multi-core test in Geekbench 5. There’s also an energy efficiency advantage, with a 25% reduction in power consumption, which should increase battery life and reduce heat.
The first smartphones with a MediaTek Dimensity 9200 processor are expected by the end of 2022, their models have not yet been named. Also in the near future, a competitor is expected to be released – the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, which will most likely be announced at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Summit on November 15-17.
