MediaTek's new Dimensity 8200 chipset is (almost) all with reference to the node soar

Nips and tucks right here and there as properly

supply: MediaTek

MediaTek is as quickly as as quickly as extra out with a mannequin new mobile chipset — this one is meant to hit that candy spot between the mid-differ and premium value zones some Wall road stiffs name “Premium B.” The Dimensity 8200 follows inside the steps of the Dimensity 9200 launched final month, however its bloodline clearly comes from the Dimensity 8000 and 8100 twin releases from again in March. For lack of a greater time period, you’d possibly name the 8200 an affect play.



1x Arm Cortex A78 @ three.1GHz + 3x A78 @ 3GHz + 4x A55 @ 2GHz w/ 4MB L3 Cache


Arm Mali-G610 MC6


MediaTek APU 580

digital camera

Imagiq 785 (320MP single digital camera, 14-bit HDR, assist for triple cameras, twin-publicity HDR video)


Wi-Fi 6E 2×2, Bluetooth 5.three, 3GPP R16 Modem (3CA 200MHz, sub-6GHz 5G)


LPDDR5 quad-channel, UFS three.1


MiraVision 785 (180Hz @ 1080p+, 120Hz @ 1440p, 4K60 video seize, 4K AV1 decode)


TSMC N4 (4nm)

On enhancements, prime billing goes to the Dimensity 8200’s transfer from TSMC’s 5nm die proper down to 4nm, bringing in extra transistors and a terrific deal of extra efficiency. The blueprint, although, hasn’t modified an extreme quantity of from the 8000 or 8100 with the identical Cortex A78 and A55 designs from Arm in place. That mentioned, these self identical eight cores are actually break up into not two, however three clusters: a single A78 working at three.1GHz with three others topping out at 3GHz, tailed by the A55s at 2GHz.

utterly different additions embrace Bluetooth LE Audio and wi-fi stereo synchronous playback, a bump up from 2CC to 3CC aggregation, and boosts to the seen facilities with assist for HDR video seize using a quantity of exposures from utterly different cameras plus a Vulkan SDK touted to make mild work of ray tracing

the agency did not give a particular competitor analog choose it did for the Dimensity 8000 and 8100 — the press stack we acquired was pretty brief and left little room to be taught between the strains.

Premium B telephones appear to matter most probably the most in sure areas like India the place whereas there’s much less disposable income than inside the best markets, there’s additionally extra striation general. there is a terrific deal of method and betting referring to the interplay of releasing Premium B merchandise alongside others inside the worth rungs above and beneath them, nonetheless the general hope for them is to collect margins that will have in any other case been misplaced if a buyer decided in the direction of a flagship and would have been eager on a mid-ranger from the identical mannequin. That makes OEMs particularly delicate to invoice of merchandise on this slim class.

MediaTek seems to suppose it is acquired a great factor going to grab a terrific deal of this space, no decrease than greater than what Qualcomm has executed.
