Mediatek unveiled the Dimension 9200 chip with ray tracing capability
MediaTek made a lot of noise last year with the introduction of its flagship Dimension 9000 chip. Now, after a long wait, the new generation of this chip called Dimension 9200 has arrived, which is going to compete with Qualcomm's flagship chips.
This chip is based on the second generation of 4nm lithography by the Taiwanese company TSMC. The Cortex-X3 main core processor with a speed of 3.05 GHz is responsible for the heaviest processing. In addition, we should mention the presence of 3 Cortex-A715 cores with a speed of 2.85 GHz and 4 Cortex-A510 cores with a speed of 1.8 GHz. The capacity of the L3 cache reaches 8 MB and the entire processor cache is 6 MB, which is no different from the previous generation.
MediaTek has announced that Dimension 9200 is the first chip that only supports 64-bit applications. Therefore, some old games and apps that are 32-bit will not run on phones based on this chip. Meanwhile, Google has stopped supporting 32-bit apps for the Pixel 7 series, which use the exclusive Tensor G2 chip; But the chip itself can support 32-bit apps in terms of hardware.
According to the benchmarks, this The chip provides 12% faster speed than the previous generation in the single-core test and 10% better performance in the multi-core test. In addition, while providing the same performance as the previous generation, this chip consumes 25% less energy. In relation to heat generation, Mediatek has been able to provide a much better performance for this chip.
Immortalis MC11 serves as the graphics processor of this chip, which in the Manhattan 3.0 benchmark achieved 32% faster speed than the generation bring the previous In addition, we must mention the 41% reduction in energy consumption if it provides the same performance as the previous generation. In addition, we should not forget the hardware support for ray tracing technology, which is the first time such a feature is offered among Mediatek chips. Simply put, this technology leads to providing more natural shadows and reflections in games.
We should note that although the Exynos 2200 also supports this feature in hardware, none of the famous and important games have yet. The feature is not supported. Of course, Mediatek has announced that a number of games will receive this feature in the first half of 2023.
In this The chip has a better image processing chip built in, and this chip can detect the background and background of the images using artificial intelligence and apply changes to the photos accordingly. Dimension 9200 supports RGBW sensors, which are more sensitive to light.
The dedicated machine learning chip in this chip is 18% faster than the previous generation and also consumes 30% less energy. We should also mention the support for WHQD displays with a refresh rate of 144 Hz and 5K displays with a refresh rate of 60 Hz. According to Mediatek, the first phones based on this chip will arrive soon before the end of 2022. will be offered.
