The MediaTek Dimensity 9300 chipset boasts an impressive technical configuration. It is built using TSMC’s cutting-edge 4nm process and comprises a configuration of 1 x ARM Cortex-X4 prime core, 3 x Cortex-X4 cores, and 4 x Cortex-A720 cores, ensuring enhanced power efficiency compared to its predecessor.
The Cortex-X4 ultra-large core, based on Armv9 architecture, offers a significant 15% performance boost over the X3 and simultaneously reduces energy consumption by 40 percent.
Furthermore, the Cortex-A720, set to be a mainstream large core in the upcoming year, enhances sustained performance in mobile devices and serves as the primary core in the new CPU cluster.
Expected to reach maximum clocking speeds of 3.25 GHz, this core will significantly contribute to the overall performance of the Dimensity 9300 chipset. In terms of graphics, the chipset is anticipated to feature the latest ARM Immortalis G720 MC12 GPU.
Leaked specifications of the Dimensity 9300 chipset hint at substantial advancements in both performance and power efficiency, positioning it as a formidable competitor in the realm of mobile performance chips. It stands ready to challenge Apple’s chips, particularly the recently unveiled A17 Pro that powers the iPhone 15 Pro series.
