On November 6, MediaTek will unveil the Dimensity 9300 chipset at 19:00 local time in China.
With the upcoming Exynos 2400 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, which are both to be announced later today, Dimensity 9300 will be the chipmaker’s flagship SoC.
The CPU configuration of the Dimensity distinguishes it from its competitors. Instead of one Cortex-X4 core, it has four. There will be a 1.25GHz “prime” core and three 2.85GHz clusters arranged in a 1+3 arrangement. The other four cores will be Cortex-A720s running at 3 GHz – no Cortex-A520s here. Immortalis G720 will be the GPU.
There will only be one Cortex-X4 core on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 and the Exynos 2400, making the Dinemsity 9300 seem like the clear winner. The Cortex-X4 is harder to cool, so, in theory, the Dimensity 9300 could throttle more easily to maintain its thermals.
In early tests, the Dimensity 9300 surpassed the 2,000,000 threshold on AnTuTu. In comparison to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, that’s a 65% improvement in the CPU score and a 55% improvement in the GPU score.
According to early benchmarks, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 scored over 2 million on AnTuTu, while the Exynos 2400 has a ten-core processor, potentially giving it an edge.
