The Dimensity 9200 is the latest high-end mobile platform for smartphones. Among the main features of the component is the pioneering spirit in a number of parts. It is the first to be manufactured in the second generation of TSMC’s 4nm process, for example.
In addition, the hardware debuts the Armv9 Gen 2 architecture, the Cortex-X3 performance core and the three Cortex-A715 numbers. This chip also sees the first appearance of the Immortalis-G715 GPU. To top it off, there’s support for the new Wi-Fi 7 wireless internet standard.
The chipset contains 17 billion transistors and promises up to 12% better performance than its predecessor, the Dimensity 9000, according to GeekBench 5.0. On the other hand, it would consume 25% less energy than the previous generation.
The Dimensity 9000 architecture only supports 64-bit apps. This allows an efficiency of up to 92%, according to LZBench Memcpy, as it would not require more energy to run.
More specifically about the new GPU, the Manhattan 3.0 detected a 32% higher performance than the previous generation, with a 41% lower power consumption. In the MOBA game, running at 120 fps, it was possible to observe a 21% battery saving. There is also now support for Ray Tracing, which allows for more realism and immersion, thanks to improvements in shadows and reflections.
The cooling system also underwent improvements, which allowed for a four times longer delay in temperature rise. In addition to this, there is the APU, which enables up to 98% more performance in the use of Artificial Intelligence.
On the camera side, night recording with the Dimensity 9200 in 4K at 30 fps consumes 25% less power compared to the Dimensity 9000, in addition to having 20% greater noise reduction at 10x zoom. With ISP Imagiq 890, it still supports bokeh effect in videos, when tracking some specific person, through AI.
Modem T800 5G
With a focus on applications and experiences with the fifth generation mobile network, MediaTek introduced the new T800 chipset. It supports both sub-6 GHz and millimeter wave (mmWave) frequencies.
The intention is to drive applications that go beyond the smartphone, into areas such as industrial IoT, M2M and always connected PCs. This modem supports download speeds of up to 7.9 Gbps and Dual 5G SIM (DSDS) and comes with 5G UltraSave technologies for energy efficiency.
“Consumers today want the ability to access 5G speeds from anywhere. MediaTek’s newest 5G chipset solution allows end users to enjoy high-speed, low-latency 5G wherever they are – offering true computing freedom. The T800 excels with super-fast, reliable 5G speeds in a highly efficient design that maximizes battery life for a great user experience.”

Company 520 e 528
In the Chromebook segment, MediaTek made the Kompanio 520 and Kompanio 528 platforms official. Both are focused on offering performance and high battery life for entry-level machines.
The intention of these components is to provide a satisfying experience in tasks such as internet browsing, cloud gaming, streaming and Google Play applications, without affecting the duration away from the outlet.
“Improved energy efficiency, fast performance and reliable connectivity are at the heart of a great user experience, and that’s exactly what MediaTek’s new Kompanio chipsets deliver. As the #1 provider of Arm-based Chromebooks, MediaTek makes the latest AI, connectivity, display and imaging capabilities affordable at every price point.”

Both models come with a dual-core graphics engine and two premium Arm Cortex-A76 cores inside the octa-core CPU. The difference is that on the Kompanio 520 they run at 2.0 GHz, while the clock on the Kompanio 528 reaches 2.2 GHz.
Each chip has an APU to accelerate AI improvements to apps, as well as camera capabilities. There is a way to combine Filic solutions for Wi-Fi 6, as well as being able to work with 32 MP sensors and 60 fps Full HD video recording. Finally, they support a Full HD+ display, with the possibility of adding an external monitor.
Chromebooks powered by MediaTek’s new chipsets are expected to hit the international market in the first half of 2023.
Finally, it was time for the new SoC for Smart TVs to be presented. The Pentonic 1000 comes with a focus on high-end televisions, which support 4K resolution at a frequency rate of 120 Hz, capable of reaching up to 4K at 144 Hz for gaming applications, through VRR technology.
The component supports Wi-Fi 6/6E, MEMC for smoother video, and Dolby Vision IQ with Precision Detail feature. It also combines a multi-core processor, a dual-core GPU and an AI processing unit (APU) with video decoding engines on a single chip.
“By integrating Dolby Vision IQ with Precision Detail, the Pentonic 1000 will enable 4K smart TVs to expand the Dolby Vision experience. Dolby will work with MediaTek and our OEM partners to bring stunning Dolby Vision imaging to more use cases for 4K Smart TVs.”

The Pentonic 1000 supports the popular ATSC 3.0, AV1, HEVC, VP9 and AVS3 standards, in addition to VVC (H.266), to usher in the adoption of VVC. There is also the possibility to explore advanced audio features such as a voice assistant to connect with other smart devices, as well as immersive Dolby Atmos sound.
Another feature present here is Intelligent View, which allows multiple Dolby Vision streams at the same time. You can view up to eight screens of different media sources simultaneously, with high definition on all.
“We designed the MediaTek Pentonic 1000 specifically to accommodate current Smart TV trends, including 4K streaming, cloud gaming, video conferencing and clock parties. With support for 4K HDR content, 120Hz frame rates, MEMC, AI enhancements, Wi-Fi 6/6E connectivity, and cutting-edge codecs like VVC, Pentonic 1000 will provide the best 4K viewing experience.”
