With the introduction of the Dimensity 9200, MediaTek is establishing itself as the market leader for the next generation of flagship CPUs. The Dimensity 9200, a 2023 flagship chip, is more than just a replacement for the Dimensity 9000; it also introduces a number of firsts.
The Dimensity 9200 is the first device to utilize this new ARMv9-based Cortex-X3 core, and it runs at 3.05GHz as its primary core. Three Cortex-A715 cores running at 2.85 GHz and four Cortex-A510 cores running at 1.8 GHz are there alongside it. The Dimensity 9200 is made using TSMC’s second-generation 4nm (N4P) process
The Dimensity 9200 employs an Immortalis-G715 GPU, which is brand-new and has hardware-based ray tracing. This translates to features like ARM Fixed Rate Compression (AFRC) for less bandwidth utilization and Variable Rate Shading (VRS) for better graphics. LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 4.0 storage are also supported, though we haven’t yet seen this sort of storage in a commercial phone.
The Dimensity 9200 supports two 5K displays at 60 Hz, three WQHD screens at 144 Hz, and a Full HD monitor at 240 Hz. It’s one of the first chips to enable WiFi 7, as well as Bluetooth 5.3, sub-6GHz, and both mmWave and 5G.
It’s interesting to note that while its APU 690 AI processor claims a 35% boost for AI tasks, it’s Imagiq 890 ISP will feature native support for RGBW sensors.
According to MediaTek, the first smartphones using the Dimensity 9200 will go on sale by the end of 2022, with a wider release following in the first half of 2023.
