VIVO to debut Dimensity 9200 chip benchmarking Snapdragon 8 Gen 2

October 27, 2022

MediaTek’s most powerful chip is the Dimensity 9000+. It even beats the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 on all benchmark platforms. However, Qualcomm will release a new-gen chip as soon as next month. In order to keep the competition pace, the Taiwanese manufacturer will release its representative in the face of the Dimensity 9200. While all major smartphone makers are struggling to become the pioneer of the upcoming Snapdragon chip, VIVO has decided to debut MediaTek’s processor.

Today, the most popular Weibo tipster said that the MediaTek Dimensity 9200 scored over 1.26 million points on AnTuTu. Thus, the performance will be upgraded noticeably.

Compared with the Dimensity 9000, the CPU is the biggest change of the Dimensity 9200. Instead of the Cortex-A2 large core, it will use the latest Cortex-X3 super core. It comes with many improvements in terms of architecture. The number of instructions per cycle of the decoder is increased from 5 to 6, the out-of-order execution window is increased from 288 to 320, and the integer ALU unit is increased from 4 to 6.

In terms of cache, the L2 cache capacity of the Cortex-X3 has also been increased from 512KB to 1MB. At the same time, the L3 cache capacity has reached 8MB. Compared with the previous generation, we think there will be a 25% improvement in performance.

In addition, the MediaTek Dimensity 9200 will use TSMC’s 4nm process. There couldn’t be another option because it is going to make competition to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen2, which also uses TSMC’s 4nm process.

The outstanding performance of the Dimensity 9000 and Dimensity 9000+ made many manufacturers launch terminals powered by those chips. Among them, we can mention the OPPO Find X5 Pro Dimensity Edition, VIVO X80 Pro Dimensity Edition, Xiaomi Mi 12S Pro Dimensity Edition, etc. They reached the ceiling of performance in the Android camp. As the successor, the performance of the Dimensity 9200 is worth looking forward to.
