Based on 2nd Gen TSMC 4nm Process

MediaTek has just showcased its next-generation flagship chipset for smartphones, called the Dimensity 9200, which brings lots of new and exciting upgrades to the already formidable mobile platform. The new Dimensity chipset is based on the ARMv9 architecture and claims to introduce lots of industry-first features with this launch. So, lets us take a look at what we can expect from this processor.



The new Dimensity 9200 processors get a huge power bump thanks to the inclusion of the first-ever ARM Cortex-X3 prime cores that are based on the above-mentioned ARMv9 architecture and can be boosted up to 3.05Ghz in terms of raw compute performance. The chipset itself features three high-performance ARM Cortex-A715 cores, which have been limited to 2.85Ghz, while another four ARM Cortex-A510 cores, set to 1.8Ghz, help maintain the efficiency levels by performing regular tasks that don't need peak performance.

All of this is based on TSMC's second-gen 4nm manufacturing process, which also adds support for LPDDR5X RAM with speeds of up to 8,533Mbps and UFS 4.0 storage that brings direct storage access to the CPU cores. This greatly improves the load balancing that the processor has to do while reducing latency between command and execution.


On the graphics front, you get the new ARM Immortalis-G715 GPU, which brings hardware-based ray tracing to the mobile platform. Ray tracing has been happily adopted en masse by the PC gaming community, and now it seems that with this new in-built hardware engine, we can expect to see better shadows and more details in mobile games as well.

This new engine also adds Variable Rate Shading, with double the machine learning performance compared to the predecessor. It even uses ARM's Fixed Rate Compression for reduced bandwidth usage while performing these tasks. This will help you get better graphical output, not just in games but in videos and photos as well since the new Imagiq 890 ISP brings native support for RGBW sensors. These sensors can utilize these special algorithms to deliver 34% more power savings while also adding a massive upgrade to the picture quality.

AI Enhancements

All these algorithms and more are further enhanced by MediaTek's sixth-generation AI Processing Unit, called the APU 690. This hardware-based AI accelerator claims to deliver a 35% improvement in AI processing, which was tested through the ETHZ5.0 benchmark app. All the while consuming an average of 30% less power, thanks to MediaTek’s eXtreme Power Saving Technology. You can notice these improvements in all sorts of apps and features that rely heavily on AI algorithms, like video games, photo editing, and even battery output. As more developers adopt these AI-based enhancements for their third-party apps, these improvements will become even more valuable as time goes by.

Hardware Support

In addition to all the performance enhancements that the new CPU and GPU can handle on their own, the Dimensity 9200 also adds support for better quality peripherals and other vital components that make up a flagship smartphone. For example, the new platform adds hardware support for up to two 5K resolution displays running at 60Hz. If you don't mind a downgrade in resolution, you can also get a bump in refresh rate, with WHQD displays running at 144Hz, and 1080p panels supporting a maximum of 240Hz refresh rate. Not to mention newly added support for the latest connectivity and networking technologies, such as Bluetooth 5.2, WiFi 7, as well as sub-6Ghz and mmWave 5G.

All of these improvements and more will be all yours once various smartphone makers get around to including this next-generation chipset in their devices. The company had teased a couple of devices, with the Dimensity 9200 launching as soon as the end of the year, but so far, we have not seen any official announcements regarding the same. So, stay tuned for all the news and updates regarding this new processor and any upcoming devices that will host it.
