MediaTek announces its flagship Dimensity 9200 SoC

On November 8th, 2022, MediaTek launched its newest flagship smartphone chipset, the Dimensity 9200, in Hsinchu, Taiwan. MediaTek claims this SoC provides users worldwide with all-day gaming experiences, improved performance and power efficiency, ultra-sharp images, and support for both mmWave 5G and sub-6GHz connectivity.

The Dimensity 9200 is currently the first chip to integrate an Arm Cortex X3 with operating speeds exceeding 3GHz and the first to include the Arm Immortalis-G715 GPU with a hardware-based ray tracing engine. Furthermore, MediaTek is incorporating “HyperEngine 6.0 Gaming Technology” into the 9200 chip. This allows for fast and fluid gaming action, allowing users to immerse themselves in each game they play.

One notable feature is that it is “WiFi 7-ready,” with data rates of up to 6.5Gbps. It includes a built-in 5G modem with AI that searches for networks faster and recovers 5G connections from dead zones. 5G will also be capable of switching between long-reach sub-6GHz and mmWave connections at the same time.

MediaTek’s own Imagiq 980 imaging processor supports RGBW sensors while producing better cinematic videos and stunning images in low or bright light conditions.

MediaTek’s Dimensity 9200 combines ultimate performance with significant power savings, extending battery life and keeping smartphones cool. With notably brighter image capturing and improved gaming speeds, along with the latest display enhancements, the Dimensity 9200 will bring new possibilities for next-gen smartphones that come in a variety of stylish and foldable form factors.
