MediaTek's new Dimensity 9200 chip will power new high-end phones coming by the end of this year. The SoC (system-on-chip) includes a 5G modem that supports both sub-6 and mmWave, as well as AI for faster network searching.
The 9200 is "the first smartphone chip to integrate an Arm Cortex X3 with operating speeds over 3GHz, and the first featuring the Arm Immortalis-G715 GPU with a hardware-based ray tracing engine." Rounding out the CPU cores are three Arm Cortex A715 and four Arm Cortex A510 efficiency cores.
MediaTek's new sixth-generation AI engine is up to 35% faster, with 30% power savings for noise reduction applications and 45% power savings for "super resolution tasks".
The chip is also the first for smartphones to support Wi-Fi 7, and the first with native support for new RGBW camera sensors. The chip supports high-end displays, including Full HD+ up to 240Hz, WHQD up to 144Hz, and even 5K displays.
For storage, the 9200 supports UFS 4.0 and "provides each Cortex-A510 CPU core with direct access to storage, significantly boosting data transmission in multi-thread applications."
The Dimensity 9200 is made with TSMC's cutting-edge 2nd Generation 4nm manufacturing process.
