Configuration of MediaTek’s Dimensity 9300 AP is reportedly causing a major problem
With a configuration that reportedly does away with any efficiency CPU cores and is made up of four Cortex-X4 prime cores and four Cortex-A720 performance cores, the unannounced MediaTek Dimensity 9300 SoC on paper would seem to be a hot number. Maybe too hot. While most chipsets will include some low-power efficiency cores (Cortex A-5xx), MediaTek has designed a component made to deliver power and speed. But that might come at a price as the component could get too hot.
The Dimensity 9300’s unique configuration is making it a hot chip
The Cortex-A720 core found in the Dimensity 9300 is said to be 20% more efficient than the previous generation A715 core. The Cortex-X4 prime core delivers a 15% increase in performance compared with the previous generation Cortex-X3. And the Dimensity 9300 will employ ARM’s Immortalis-G720 GPU which hikes performance by 15% while using 40% less memory bandwidth. The Dimensity 9300 is expected to be built by TSMC using its 4nm process node.
