The Taiwanese chipmaker, MediaTek, has introduced its latest high-end chipset, the Dimensity 9300, showcasing remarkable performance and energy efficiency. This new System-on-Chip (SoC) has recently emerged on AnTuTu’s platform, securing a groundbreaking score of over 2 million points, and setting a new record for the benchmarking tool.
The Dimensity 9300 is distinguished by its distinctive octa-core CPU setup, incorporating four Cortex-X4 cores and four Cortex-A720 cores, without the inclusion of low-power Cortex-A520 cores. Clock speeds for the CPU are reportedly set at 3.25 GHz for the primary Cortex-X4 core, 2.85 GHz for the remaining three Cortex-X4 cores, and 2.0 GHz for the Cortex-A720 cores. MediaTek has crafted the GPU, known as Immortalis-G720, as a custom design specifically for the Dimensity 9300.
According to the leaks from Digital Chat Station, the Dimensity 9300 surpasses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 by 10% in terms of speed. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is anticipated to power the majority of Android flagships in 2024 and features a distinct CPU layout comprising one Cortex-X4 core, five Cortex-A720 cores, and two Cortex-A520 cores. Notably, the Dimensity 9300 also outperforms the Apple A17 Pro, the powerhouse behind the iPhone 15 series.
Utilizing a 4-nanometer process technology, the Dimensity 9300 achieves a balance between superior performance and reduced power consumption. The chipset is compatible with LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 4.0 storage, further enhancing the device’s speed and responsiveness.
While an official launch date for the Dimensity 9300 remains undisclosed, there are speculations indicating that Xiaomi might be among the first to incorporate this new chipset into its upcoming flagship devices. The Dimensity 9300 is poised to be a formidable competitor in the high-end smartphone market, posing a challenge to the dominance of Qualcomm and Apple.
