Last Updated on November 22, 2023 by Nahush Gowda

MediaTek has added another flagship chip in its arsenal with Dimensity 9200. This is the first chipset to use the Arm Cortex-X3 prime core, which runs at 3.05 GHz and is based on the ARMv9 architecture. 

The CPU additionally includes three Arm Cortex-A715 cores running at 2.85GHz and four Arm Cortex-A510 cores running at 1.8GHz. The new chip is manufactured on the TSMC 2nd generation 4nm technology (N4P).

J.C. Hsu, Corporate Vice President and General Manager of MediaTek’s wireless communications business unit, said 

“MediaTek’s Dimensity 9200 combines ultimate performance with significant power savings, extending battery life and keeping smartphones cool,”

He also added,

“With notably brighter image capturing and improved gaming speeds, along with the latest display enhancements, Dimensity 9200 will bring new possibilities for next-gen smartphones that come in a variety of stylish and foldable forms,”

The second breakthrough is in the graphics department where it has the ARM Immortalis-G715 GPU with a hardware-based ray tracing engine. The new flagship graphics unit brings Variable Rate Shading (VRS), double machine learning performance compared to the predecessor and ARM Fixed Rate Compression (AFRC) for reduced bandwidth usage.

MediaTek is also introducing a sixth-generation AI Processing Unit, the APU 690, which outperforms its predecessor, Dimensity 9000, by 35% in the ETHZ5.0 test app

The chipset also supports fast LPDDR5X RAM with memory speeds of up to 8,533Mbps and UFS 4.0 storage for lightning-quick data transmission and direct storage access to the CPU cores.
