Taiwanese fabless semiconductor company MediaTek held an online conference on Nov. 8 to launch the new generation flagship 5G system on a chip (SoC), Dimensity 9200. The new processor adopts TSMC 4nm process technology, and compared with Dimensity 9000, the new product’s CPU single-core performance improves by 12% and multi-core performance improves by 10%.
To solve the problems of heat dissipation and power consumption, Dimensity 9200 adopts innovative packaging technology, which improves heat dissipation capacity by 10%, delays temperature rise by 4 times, and reduces power consumption of the CPU by about 25%. compared to the previous generation. Simply put, it has higher performance and lower power consumption.
In terms of GPU, Dimensity 9200 adopts the 11-core Immortalis-G715 and supports mobile hardware ray tracing. Ray tracing can enhance the authenticity of the image and bring the effects of the real image in the game closer, including refraction, reflection, light and shadow, etc. To promote the application of mobile ray tracing, MediaTek is now cooperating with TencentThe production team of the game “Dark Zone Breakthrough”.
In terms of performance, the Dimensity 9200 GPU was tested with Manhattan 3.0, which improved performance by approximately 32% and reduced power consumption by 41% compared to Dimensity 9000. Major mobile games, including Genshin Impact, Call of Duty: Mobile, QQ Speed, etc., can run at near extreme frame rate, with lower power consumption and save mobile phone batteries.
In terms of AI performance, Dimensity 9200 adopts the 6th generation flagship 690 APU, and its performance in ETHZ 5.0 test is improved by about 35%, and the power efficiency of super-resolution video is improved by 45%. When recording video in 4K 30FPS AI super night mode, compared to Dimensity 9000, power consumption is saved by 25%.
Dimensity 9200 supports 8533Mbps LPDDR5X memory and 8 channel UFS4.0 flash memory. It also supports MediaTek HyperEngine 6.0 game engine, which can eliminate screen ghosting in real time and reduce game lag when using Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. You can also reduce the temperature and power consumption to improve the stability of the game’s frame rate. Its new adaptive game control technology is cooperating with TencentThe MOBA game of Honor of Kings.
Dimensity 9200 is the first to support Wi-Fi7 wireless network, and the theoretical maximum value of transmission speed can reach 6.5Gbps, which is 170% higher than 65GHz Wi-Fi performance and 50% higher than 65GHz Wi-Fi. When Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are connected at the same time, MediaTek HyperCoex technology can improve signal strength and transmission distance.
In addition, Dimensity 9200 covers global satellite signals, including navigation systems such as Beidou in China, Global Positioning System in the United States, Galileo in Europe, and GLONASS in Russia, which also indicates that many mobile phones compatible with satellite communication will be launched soon. .
At the launch event conference, vivo, OPPO, xiaomi and other manufacturers said they would release new Dimensity 9200-equipped models. Among them, vivo has announced that its new flagship (expected to be the X90 series smartphone) will first adopt the Dimensity 9200 chip. MediaTek revealed that smartphones using the flagship Dimensity 9200 mobile 5G chipset are expected to launch in late 2022.
This time, before Qualcomm, MediaTek released a new generation of SoC for flagship mobile phones. From the smiles and confident expressions of the MediaTek executives who came to introduce the product at the event, it can be seen that the company has high expectations for Dimensity 9200. In 2022, MediaTek’s market share in the global SoC for smartphones reached 38%, ranking first. in market share.
