MediaTek launches Dimensity 9300 flagship mobile chipset

Qualcomm announced its flagship mobile chipset, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 recently, and on November 6, MediaTek unveiled its Snapdragon competitor, Dimensity 9300.  The Dimensity 9300 is MediaTek’s flagship mobile chipset, which we expect to see in multiple flagship smartphones in the coming year. According to the company, the new chipset offers major AI, photography, and graphics improvements. This time, MediaTek has even changed its CPU setup with the hopes of taking on Qualcomm. Whether the company has succeeded or not, we will in the coming weeks. In the meantime, let’s take a look at the new Dimensity 9300.

Unlike those chips, there aren’t any power-efficient Arm Cortex-A5XX series cores, which may improve the performance vastly but could deliver questionable battery life.  Source: MediaTek However, the Dimensity 9300 still employs a three-tier CPU approach here, more or less. There’s a single larger Cortex-X4 core, clocked at 3.25GHz, while the other cores are clocked at 2.85GHz.  According…MediaTek launches Dimensity 9300 flagship mobile chipset
