The MediaTek Dimensity 9300+ chipset was unveiled by the company on Tuesday (May 7). Last week, the Taiwan-based semiconductor giant announced the unveiling of the new processor and teased that it will arrive with advanced artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities. Based on this, the company said the AI-enabled chipset will support multimodal application processing on the device. It is built with TSMC’s advanced third-generation 4nm technology and offers up to 10 percent less power consumption and up to 25 percent less cellular data consumption.

The successor to the Dimensity 9300 mobile processor is an octa-core chip featuring four Arm Cortex-A720 cores clocked at 2.0 GHz, three Arm Cortex-X4 cores clocked at up to 2.85 GHz and one Cortex-X4 core with a maximum clock speed of frequency speed 3.4GHz. It supports up to LPDDR5T 9600Mbps RAM and UFS 4.0 storage with Multi-Circular Queue (MCQ) support.

Coming to the GPU, the MediaTek Dimensity 9300+ chipset features the Arm Immortalis-G720 GPU, a second generation hardware ray tracing engine. The company claims that the new GPU will offer a fast ray-tracing experience at 60 FPS. In addition, the chip also enables better performance and higher energy efficiency thanks to HyperEngine and MediaTek Adaptive Gaming Technology (MAGT).

Focusing on the AI ​​capabilities of the mobile processor, the Dimensity 9300+ features an APU (Agent Processing Unit) APU 790 AI engine that enables it to support large language models (LLM) with one billion, seven billion and 13 billion parameters. The capability can be further scaled up to 33 billion parameters. The company claims the chip can handle an LLM with seven billion parameters at a rate of 22 tokens per second.

The chipset offers support for LoRA Fusion on the device and NeuroPilot LoRA Fusion 2.0, allowing developers to deploy multimodal AI applications with text, images, music and more. MediaTek claims it can run LLMs like Google Gemini Nano, Meta Llama 2 and Llama 3, Ernie-3.5-SE, Alibaba Cloud Qwen, and more.

Additionally, the SoC comes with Imagiq 990 ISP capabilities, which is claimed to offer 18-bit RAW processing even in low-light conditions. The Imagiq 990 also supports AI video recording as it features the AI ​​Semantic Analysis Video Engine. In addition, the Dimensity 9300+ also features MiraVision 990, which helps in capturing photos in portrait mode.

In terms of connectivity, the new MediaTek Dimensity 9300+ has a 5G R16 modem that supports AI situational awareness. It supports up to 7Gbps downlink as well as 4CC-CA sub-6GHz bands.
