MediaTek’s next top chipset, the Dimensity 9200+, is set to be officially unveiled on May 10th. Today, however, the new platform has already been shown at the benchmarking service Geekbench and passed a Geekbench 6 test. The single-core and multi-core scores were so high that they actually surpassed the current leader, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. And even the A16 Bionic in Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro models is now in sight.
In the single-core test, Geekbench 6 returned 2,121 points, while in the multi-core test we get 5,655 points. That’s significantly more than most smartphones with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip. According to the Model/Model ID entry, the chipset powered a vivo smartphone – we’re probably seeing the first Geekbench test of the upcoming vivo X90S here.
So far, there is only one Android smartphone that comes close to the Dimensity 9200+ with a single-core score of 1,992 and a multi-core score of 5,641. Namely the Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate with activated X mode for maximum performance. The only chipset that outperforms the Dimensity 9200+ is currently Apple’s A16 Bionic. However, the cards will be reshuffled in September at the latest when Apple introduces the iPhone 15 series with the new A17 Bionic chip.
According to previous leaks and reports, the Dimensity 9200+ has a Cortex-X3 main core clocked at 3.35 GHz. There are also three Cortex-A175 cores with 3.0 GHz and four small Cortex-A510 cores with currently unknown clock speeds.
