MediaTek has announced its latest 8000 series chipset with the Dimensity 8300. The new SoC is based on TSMC’s second-generation 4nm process and is the direct successor to last year’s Dimensity 8200, offering performance improvements to all levels.
MediaTek Dimensions 8300
The Dimensity 8300 features 4 Arm Cortex-A715 performance cores clocked at up to 3.35 GHz as well as 4 Arm Cortex-A510 efficiency units at clock speeds up to 2.2 GHz. The eight cores are based on the Armv9 CPU architecture and MediaTek claims up to 20% faster CPU performance and maximum power efficiency gains of 30% compared to the outgoing Dimensity 8200.

The new chip also features an Arm Mali-G615 MC6 GPU that brings up to 60% performance gains and 55% improved power efficiency at peak speeds compared to its predecessor. MediaTek also claims up to 17% faster cold launch of apps and up to 47% faster launch of apps in sleep mode with the new chip. The new chip also supports quad-channel LPDDR5X RAM at speeds of 8,533 Mbps and UFS 4.0 storage with multi-circle queue (MCQ) support.
The 780 APU inside the Dimensity 8300 makes it the first chip in its class to support generative AI with stable streaming and LLM support with up to 10 billion parameters. The Imagiq 980 ISP supports up to 320 MP camera sensors and 4K video recording at 60 fps.
Distribution of dimension 8300
The Dimensity 8300 has an integrated 5G modem supporting dual-mode 5G and downlink of up to 5.17 Gbps on networks below 6 GHz. The chip is also equipped with Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.4 connectivity.
Xiaomi has already confirmed that its Redmi Note 70E will launch the Dimensity 8300 later this month.
