MediaTek set a new benchmark for Android flagship platforms with its soon-to-launch Dimensity 9300, which scored over 2 million on AnTuTu.
The milestone was announced by AnTuTu on the Chinese social media site Weibo, where it disclosed not just the score, but also some key details about the chip.
The Dimensity 9300 achieved a total score of 2,055,084 on AnTuTu. In comparison, the highest average score of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 on the same app is 1,630,559, held by the gaming smartphone Red Magic 8 Pro+ with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. According to AnTuTu, this marks the first time an Android flagship platform has exceeded 2 million on AnTuTu.
However, the score does not reflect the chip’s actual performance in real-world scenarios, and only shows its potential power.
The test machine used for the AnTuTu benchmark had 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. The Dimensity 9300 uses an architecture of four ultra-large cores Cortex-X4 and four large cores Cortex-A720 in the CPU part. It has an Immortalis-G720 GPU, which supports ray tracing and variable rate shading technologies.
According to a previous report, the Dimensity 9300 also outperforms the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 on AnTuTu 10. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, which is yet to be announced by Qualcomm, is expected to have a 1+2+3+2 core configuration and a more powerful Adreno 750 GPU, which is said to be 50% more powerful than the current Adreno 740.
MediaTek has not yet revealed any details about the Dimensity 9300, but it is expected to power some of the upcoming flagship smartphones. Hopefully, we see it before the year ends.
