Mediatek is expected to launch the Dimensity 9300 chipset soon, and previous reports by Digital Chat Station suggested four Cortex-X4 cores and four Cortex-A720 units with no low-power A520 cores whatsoever.
Today, the leakster provided further information about the CPU clock speeds, claiming Dimensity 9300 will be 10% faster than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.
Mediatek is expected to go for the 1+3+4 architecture - 1x3.25 GHz Cortex-X4, 3x2.85 GHz Cortex-X4, 4x2.0 GHz Cortex-A720. We also expect to see an Immortalis-G720 GPU. This is in contrast to the 1+5+2 setup by Snapdragon - 1x3.19 GHz Cortex-X4 & 5x2.96 GHz Cortex-A720 & 2x2.27 GHz Cortex-A520.
While the combination of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is fairly unorthodox, Mediatek is trying something unseen before by omitting the low-power cores. We are curious how this will play out in real-life scenarios and if makers will manage to avoid overheating issues and extract the otherwise huge potential of the chip.
Without A5XX Core, it's so insane, if no issue with this chipset, mediatek can lead the benchmark score and gaming consumer for a few times..
Exactly what I was pointing out. And what is the point of this SoC, if those cores are true (last time they said that it will be A720 instead X4...)
no its all about clock ..more core with underclocked core can run less heating but more perfomance but more efficient compare to high clock with fewer core..higher clock gives more heat lead to throttle and bad perfomance
