Mediatek Dimensity 9300 tipped to only feature powerful cores

Yordan, 30 May 2023

Arm unveiled the high-power Cortex-X4 core yesterday for mobile processors alongisde the Cortex-A720 and Cortex-A520 cores. Mediatek followed to confirm its next Dimensity flagship 5G SoC will feature X4 and A720, as well as Immortalis-G720 GPU, but did not mention A520.

The leakster Digital Chat Station used their Weibo account to try and offer an explantion - there isn’t Cortex-A520 in the chipset; the Mediatek Dimensity 9300 will have an octa-core CPU with 4x Cortex-X4 + 4X Cortex-A720 architecture.

Mediatek might launch Dimensity 9300 without little cores

The chip will be built on the N4P process. It is a refined 4 nm next-gen solution, providing a performance boost and power efficiency improvements over the N5 and N4 processes.

According to the leakster, the Dimensity 9300 would beat the eventual Apple A17 Bionic in a head-to-head comparison and will also reduce power consumption by 50%, compared to “the previous generation”.

It is far more likely for the Dimensity 9300 to follow the 1+5+2 configuration, but if Mediatek is really willing to put four super cores in their CPU, we might see the beginning of a revolution in chipset development. For now, we are staying reserved to such bold claims and will wait for the actual products to appear before getting overly excited.
