MediaTek’s Dimensity 9300 could be THE chipset of 2023/2024


Back in the early days of smartphone chipsets, most of the chipsets in the market tended to use similar cores across the board, but that changed and we started to see the incorporation of the big.LITTLE design.

This is basically where a chipset would feature a set of high-performance cores for more intensive applications, and a set of lower-performance cores for the more mundane day-to-day stuff. This allowed chipsets to be more energy efficient instead of running at full speed all the time.

But now it looks like MediaTek could be changing things up. The company recently confirmed that their next-gen chipset, the Dimensity 9300, will be taking advantage of Arm’s latest design and would feature the use of Cortex-X4 cores alongside Cortex-A720 cores. Notably absent are the lower-powered Cortex-A520 cores, which tipster Digital Chat Station explained would mean that MediaTek’s Dimensity could adopt 4x X4 cores and 4x A720 cores.

This means that MediaTek could be moving away from the big, medium, little design which is used by the majority of chipsets today, and could be adopting only the powerful cores from Arm’s latest design. This could potentially result in a chipset that is extremely powerful in performance, and given that Arm did highlight how its new Total Compute Solution is also more energy efficient, it could potentially reduce power consumption by as much as 50%.

If that is the case, MediaTek could have a game-changer on their hands and could put companies like Qualcomm on notice. The company hasn’t officially announced anything yet so we’ll have to wait and see if this is the configuration the company will be going for.
