The well-known insider Digital Chat Station has published the characteristics of Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and MediaTek Dimensity 9200 single-chip systems, which will compete with each other in the top-end smartphone market at least in the first half of 2023.
According to the source, both SoCs will be manufactured by TSMC at 4nm standards. Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 configuration will include one Cortex-X3 core at 3.19GHz, two Cortex-A715 cores at 2.8GHz, two Cortex-A710 cores at 2.8GHz, three Cortex-A510 cores at 2GHz and GPU Adreno 740.
The Dimensity 9200 will have a similar but different configuration with one 3.05GHz Cortex-X3 core, three 2.85GHz Cortex-A715s, four 2GHz Cortex-A510s, and an Immortalis-G715 MC11 GPU.
Wherein today there were data that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will actually have four 2.8GHz Cortex-A715 cores, as indicated by Geekbench.
Which solution will be faster and more energy efficient is anyone’s guess. Moreover, we can roughly compare the CPUs at least by their parameters, but there are no details about the GPU.
Digital Chat Station was previously the first to accurately announce the specifications and release dates of Redmi K30, K40, Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 11.
