Mediatek Dimensity 8200 is official with 3.1 GHz CPU and ray tracing

Yordan, 08 December 2022

Mediatek introduced the Dimensity 8200 - a new chipset that brings flagship-level experience to premium smartphones. It is built on the 4 nm process technology and comes with HyperEngine 6.0, which supports Vulkan SDK for raytracing in gaming, FPS improvement and smart resource optimization.

Dimensity 8200 is Mediatek’s first product of the series with one “big” CPU core - Cortex-A78 at 3.1 GHz, three more at 3.0 GHz for performance, and four Cortex-A55 at 2.0 GHz for efficiency.

Mediatek brought improved camera support and Imagiq 785 ISP, but the big changes from predecessors are fueled by the mightier processor. It will allow HyperEngine, a set of features dedicated to improving gaming performance in smartphones in the flagship-killer territory.

Devices with Dimensity 8200 will have the chance to intelligently adapt the refresh rate when a game is powered - the chip will adjust automatically, according to the frame rate.

Connectivity-wise, the new chip inherited from its predecessors the dual-5G connectivity, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.3 and the downlink speed. The max refresh rate increased ever so slightly, but it is still up to the manufacturers to actually enable this feature on their smartphones.

Speaking of smartphones, we already have devices with Dimensity 8200. The first one on the market is the iQOO Neo7 SE, announced earlier today in China. Xiaomi said on Weibo it is also planning to launch a Redmi K60E phone but did not give any time frame.

Guys do not go by specifications, specs show many fancy things but only few things are included in Devices when a Handset comes out. Many features will be either blocked or not included in Handsets motherboard. Budgets devices will miss a lot of thin...

Steam deck does it at like 25w. Assume exynos 2200 does an even lower quality rt at half the power. A phone with 8+g1 is like 12w maxed out, you dont see any power consumption figures on any of the tech demoes of mtk right?

You compare PC to smartphone and don't see any problem! Power consumption and cooling on both have nothing to do! How can you seriously doing that!!! I compare smartphone to smartphone !
