New Mediatek 5G Chipset Launched: Dimensity 920
Taiwanese chip design firm MediaTek launched two new products in its Dimensity lineup of mobile SoCs: the Dimensity 920 and the Dimensity 810. The MediaTek Dimensity family of SoCs comprises numerous chips designed for mobile devices, and they all feature integrated 5G modems. Let’s discuss the features of the D920 today:
The more powerful of the two chips announced today — the MediaTek Dimensity 920 — is fabricated on a 6nm manufacturing node and offers a 9% boost in gaming performance compared to the chip it’s succeeding: the Dimensity 900.
The chip has an octa-core CPU, with multiple ARM Cortex-A78 cores clocked at up to 2.5GHz. The chip also supports LPDDR5 memory and UFS 3.1 storage modules. Its Image Signal Processor (ISP) supports 4K HDR video encoding, quad-camera concurrency, and up to 108MP image capture with zero shutter lag.
In comparison, the MediaTek Dimensity 900 featured 2x ARM Cortex-A78 cores clocked at up to 2.4GHz plus 6x ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at up to 2GHz. Its GPU was ARM’s Mali-G68 with four cores.
In its press release, MediaTek also touts several of its proprietary technologies that are supported by the Dimensity 920. These include the company’s “Smart Adaptive Displays” tech which allows for the adjustment of the display refresh rate based on game or UI activity, “5G UltraSave” for improved power efficiency when 5G networking is active, and “HyperEngine 3.0” which, in conjunction with 5G call and data concurrency as well as unspecified connection enhancements and a “Super Hotspot” technology, promises to improve gaming performance.
