At its flagship chipset launch event, MediaTek officially unveiled the Dimensity 9300, its latest high-end 5G mobile platform, new mobile processor chips makes a leap to a full octa-core CPU configuration for the first time, along with groundbreaking generative AI capabilities.
MediaTek has held the top global smartphone chipset market share for three consecutive years, new Dimensity 9300 looks to extend its leadership with an uncompromising flagship that raises the bar for performance, graphics, AI, imaging, and connectivity.
CPU Architecture: Full Octa-Core Design, 15% Faster
Dimensity 9300 octa-core CPU with a “4+4” big+bigger core layout
- 1x Cortex-X3 core at 3.25GHz
- 3x Cortex-X2 cores at 2.85GHz
- 4x Cortex-A715 cores at 2.0GHz
By utilizing all high-performance cores without any underpowered A55 cores, the Dimensity 9300 achieves a 15% speed boost over the Dimensity 9200 at the same power level. Multi-core performance sees an even bigger 40% jump.
The full octa-core design also enables up to 33% power savings at matched performance levels versus the Dimensity 9200. With its TSMC 4nm process, the Dimensity 9300 packs an astounding 22.7 billion transistors.
Graphics: Up to 23% Faster, Ray Tracing at 60FPS
Dimensity 9300 incorporates MediaTek’s second-gen ray tracing engine within its new Immortalis-G720 MC12 GPU. Combined with the 4nm process enhancements, graphics performance sees up to a 23% increase over the prior model.
Ray tracing performance specifically catapults 46% higher, enabling console-quality effects like global illumination and 60FPS ray tracing for mobile games, supports up to WQHD+ 180Hz or 4K 120Hz displays.
AI: World’s First Smartphone Chip with Generative AI
Likely its biggest innovation, the Dimensity 9300 integrates MediaTek’s 7th gen AI processor, the APU 790, with integrated compression, this AI silicon can run massive generative AI models up to 33 billion parameters in real-time.
The APU 790 delivers lightning fast inference, generating complex Stable Diffusion images in under 1 second. MediaTek also built a full ecosystem for AI development, allowing apps to tap into the full power of generative AI on the Dimensity 9300.
- Upgraded Imagiq 990 image signal processor with support for 33MP + 32MP dual HDR video recording
- Latest Armv9 memory tagging for enhanced security
- Wi-Fi 7 connectivity with speeds up to 7Gbps
- Dual Bluetooth antennas for ultra-low latency audio
By fully embracing an octa-core design and pushing new boundaries in areas like graphics, AI, imaging, and connectivity, MediaTek’s Dimensity 9300 sets a new standard for premium 5G smartphones. Devices featuring the chipset will offer uncompromising performance enveloped in sleek flagship designs.
With its first-of-its-kind integration of real-time generative AI, the Dimensity 9300 also provides a glimpse into the future of on-device computational creativity.
