MediaTek continues to chart its path consistently in the field of high-end SoCs for smartphones and tablets. After the launch of Dimensity 9000 and 9000 Plus (at the end of last year and this summer respectively), the Taiwanese manufacturer is making its new Dimensiy 9200 official. The latter will have the difficult task of competing more or less head-on with the future Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 which Qualcomm should propose soon.
To achieve this ambitious goal, MediaTek does not skimp on the means, still relying on the4 nm incision of TSMC, the same one that should exploit its competitor. The Dimensity 9200 also displays a number of tantalizing specs, starting with support for 8533 MHz LPDDR5X RAM and lower power consumption, according to MediaTek, by 25% compared to its predecessor.
In detail of its CPU part, the Dimensity 9200 brings together a powerful Cortex X3 core with clock a 3,05 GHzthree Cortex A715 cores clocked at 2.85 GHz and 4 highly efficient Cortex A510 cores limited this time to a frequency of 1.80 GHz. As WCCFTech points out, however, this is not guaranteed.
The higher frequency could however be observed briefly on the peak performance. It should also be noted that the distribution of the cores of the new MediaTek SoC (1 + 3 + 4) is quite different from that anticipated for the future Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 (1 + 4 + 3). We’ll see if this is confirmed when the processor is announced this winter.
Either way, MediaTek promises a 12% performance increase in single-core over that offered last year by the Dimensity 9000, and 10% more power in the context of multi-core usage. The manufacturer also promises to have thoroughly revised the thermal design of its chip to avoid any overheating issues. A concern that hit Qualcomm earlier this year, over the first generation Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
Lato GPU, the Dimensity 9200 promises native support for ray tracing, but also and above all 32% more performance and 41% less consumption compared to the iGPU of the Dimensity 9000, which is widely outclassed. This graphic part will also allow support for Full HD + screens at a maximum of 240Hz, WQHD up to 144Hz and 2.5K at 60Hz.
MediaTek’s new chip also tries to convince at the photographic level, with support for RGBW capture thanks to a Imagiq 890 ISP (Image Signal Processor), which also offers 35% more performance on the AI and an improvement in system sharpness on the moving image. Unsurprisingly, the Dimensity 9200 finally offers the best in connectivity with support for Wi-Fi 7, 5G mmWave, Bluetooth 5.3 and Bluetooth LE.
This new SoC should arrive on the market at the end of the year on a first batch of smartphones.
