Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and MediaTek Dimensity 9200 to outperform the A16 Bionic as core configuration details and GPU benchmark numbers leak
The MediaTek Dimensity 9200 has been officially confirmed to debut on November 8, with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 to follow about a week later. Both chipsets will represent the very best Android has to offer, and new leaks seem to indicate they could edge the A16 Bionic in some aspects, too.
As revealed by multiple sources, it appears the Dimensity 9200 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will outperform the A16 Bionic in the GPU department. Citing the 1080p Manhattan 3.1 Offscreen test, both SoCs do better than the iPhone 14 Pro Max's A16 Bionic. According to Digital Chat Station, the Snapdragon 8 Gen and its Adreno 740 score 217 FPS in that test, while the A16 Bionic comes in at 195 FPS. MediaTek looks set to finally catch up to its peers GPU-wise, as the new Mali-G715 Immortalis MC11 on the Dimensity 9200 rockets it straight to a score of 228 FPS.
While clock speeds of the two chipsets remain unconfirmed, leaks currently indicate that the Dimensity 9200 will feature one Cortex-X3 core clocked at 3.05 GHz, three Cortex-A715 cores at 2.85 GHz, and four Cortex-A510 cores clocked at 2.0 GHz. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 looks to feature one Cortex-X3 core clocked at 3.35 GHz, two Cortex-A715 cores clocked at 2.80 GHz, two Cortex-A710 cores at 2.80 GHz, and three Cortex-A510 cores running at 2.0 GHz.
