MediaTek Dimensity 9200 dramatically improves power and energy efficiency

MediaTek Dimension 9200 It is the new top-of-the-range ARM-based SoC from the Taiwanese brand. This new model introduces some important improvements and is ready to stand up to Apple’s A16 Bionic and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. For this MediaTek has not only improved the power, but also the energy consumption levels significantly (or at least that is its version).

The MediaTek Dimensity 9200 is built on TSMC’s 4nm process, laying a very powerful foundation for high power efficiency. The distribution of the nuclei is composed of a Cortex-X3 core capable of operating up to 3.05GHz, three Cortex-A715 cores that reach 2. ( 85GHz and another four efficient Cortex-A510 that reach up to 1.80GHz.

The combination of cores in the Dimensity 9200, according to MediaTek, gives it a 12% single-core and 10% multi-core performance improvement compared to the Dimensity 9000. This may not sound like much in itself, but the situation improves a lot if we say that energy efficiency has improved, at least according to the company, by 25%. This can be an aspect that gives it many points when it comes to being incorporated into high-end smartphones if it achieves its goals of competing well within that market segment.

The GPU is another front where the MediaTek Dimensity 9200 has improved significantly thanks to the inclusion of a Immortalis-G715 graphics processor, which has already been shown to be superior to the solution used by the A16 Bionic. Also, the Immortalis-G715 included in the Dimensity 9200 supports ray tracing and improves performance by 32% and power efficiency by 41% compared to its predecessor. At the screen level, it can support FHD + at 240Hz, WQHD at 144Hz and two 2.5K panels at 60Hz.

Features of the MediaTek Dimension 9200

When it comes to camera support, the Dimension 9200 has native support for RGBW capture. The new Imagiq 890 Image Signal Processor (ISP) supports a wide range of features such as motion blur and a 35% AI boost. Another prominent feature is WiFi 7, a specification around which MediaTek has shown a lot of interest. This is in addition to mmWave 5G, Bluetooth 5.3 with studio-grade wireless audio, and Bluetooth LE.

It is speculated that the first family of smartphones equipped with the MediaTek Dimensity 9200 will arrive later this year. By then, and especially if this speculation is true, it is expected that there will be quite a few comparisons with SoC models from Qualcomm and Apple. What is shown by MediaTek looks quite nice, but in addition to the quality of the product, it is also important that it be a commercial success, and here we find ourselves with the trend that is not always meritocratic in consumer computing.
