MediaTek’s Dimensity 9200 chip is packed with world firsts

MediaTek has announced the Dimensity 9200 smartphone processor, which the company says “combines peak performance with significant power savings, extending battery life and keeping smartphones cool.” Built with cutting-edge techniques, it’s the first flagship chip from the manufacturer to include Sub-6 5G and mmWave 5G connectivity, meaning it will be more appealing to brands launching phones in the US and around the world.

Built on the latest 2nd generation 4nm process, it is the first chip to use the 2nd generation ARM V9 architecture, the first with the new LPDDR5X RAM, and the first with UFS 4.0 and MCQ storage. The processor uses a single ARM Cortex X3 running at 3.05GHz, three 2.85GHz Cortex A715 cores, and four 1.8GHz Cortex A510 cores for efficiency. The Dimensity 9200 is also the first chip to use ARM’s 11-core Immortalis G715 GPU, which supports hardware ray tracing.


What does this all mean? It means more power and better efficiency compared to the Dimensity 9000 and across many of the processor capabilities. MediaTek estimates 30% more power efficiency for AI noise reduction tasks and 45% more efficiency for AI super resolution tasks. The AI ​​Processing Unit (APU) is also touted as being up to 35% faster than the previous generation.

The Imagiq 980 Image Signal Processor (ISP) has been updated with support for RGBW camera sensors, and the updated AI promises improved HDR, new cinematic video modes, and less blur in photos. The chip supports cameras up to 300 megapixels and the ability to shoot 8K video. The Dimensity 9200 also supports displays with up to 144Hz adaptive refresh rate and WQHD resolution.

MediaTek says that the Dimensity 9200 will be part of its Dimensity Open Resource Architecture (DORA) initiative, where manufacturers can customize the chip to meet requirements. We recently saw how Oppo and MediaTek successfully worked together on the Reno 8 Pro using DORA and the Dinemsity 8200 Max processor.

When will we start seeing Dimensity 9200 phones? MediaTek says its launch partners will be revealed before the end of the year. The company also promises a faster and wider release than the Dimensity 9000, which didn’t make much of an impact outside of China. He wants more phones released in the US to use the chip, but says this may take some time to catch on.
