one of its CPUs apparently being considered for inclusion in the next Galaxy S22 FE and Galaxy S23, MediaTek has used the opportunity to quietly announce the debut of its new Dimensity 1300 chipset, which improves on the Dimensity 1200. The Dimensity 1300 octa-core SoC is built on a 6nm technology and has a quad of Arm Cortex-A78 cores, including an Ultra Core with a 3GHz clock speed that enables super-fast frame rates, AV1 hardware decoding, and increased AI capabilities.
Four Arm Cortex-A55 efficiency cores, clocked at up to 2GHz, work alongside the A78 cores to handle lower-priority tasks and improve power efficiency. The visuals are handled by an Arm Mali G77 MC9 GPU, which supports resolutions of up to 2520 x 1080 and a refresh rate of up to 168Hz. There’s support for up to 16GB of LPDDR4x RAM running at up to 4266Mbps, as well as UFS 3.1 storage, and 5G connection, as you’d expect in 2022.
Performance Results ——————————————————————————-
The octa-core CPU in the Dimensity 1300 has four premium Arm Cortex-A78 processors, including a ‘ultra-core’ that runs at 3GHz. The Dimensity 1300 is an exceptionally efficient chip design for longer everyday battery life, built utilising the TSMC N6 (6nm-class) fabrication process.
- 1X Ultra Core: Arm Cortex-A78 up to 3GHz
- 3X Super Cores: Arm Cortex-A78 up to 2.6GHz
- 4X Efficiency Cores: Arm Cortex-A55 up to 2GHz
- 9-core Arm Mali GPU
Gaming technology based on HyperEngine 5.0 ———————————————————-
Exclusive AI-VRS, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth Hybrid 2.0, and wireless earbud latency improvements from Bluetooth LE Audio technology with Dual-Link True Wireless Stereo Audio are among the features included in MediaTek HyperEngine 5.0.
Outstanding AI performance ————————————————————————
The Dimensity 1300 improves the six-core APU 3.0’s AI benchmark results by up to 10%, allowing for more AI jobs. The MediaTek APU 3.0 comes with a powerful multi-tasking scheduler that boosts speed and efficiency while managing several activities at once.
Imagiq Camera by MediaTek ————————————————————————
Improved night photography and HDR capabilities for superb image quality are among the new AI camera features. When compared to regular 4K HDR video capture,’ staggered’ 4K HDR video recording employs real-time 3-exposure fusion to deliver 40% more dynamic range.
The photography department adds better night shot capabilities as well as ‘Staggered’ 4K HDR video recording, which employs real-time 3-exposure fusion to deliver a 40% higher dynamic range than regular 4K HDR video capture. The following are some of the AI camera’s other features:
- 4K HDR Video with 3-Exposure Fusion
- AI-Pano Night Shot
- AI Multi-Person Bokeh Video
- Multi-Depth Smart Focus Video
- AINR + HDR Photo
Displays that are extremely quick ——————————————————————–
The Dimensity 1300 supports super-fast refresh rate displays, allowing users to enjoy stunning, zero-lag graphics when gaming, as well as noticeably better everyday experiences thanks to speedier browsing of webpages, social feeds, and apps animations.
Hardware Decoding for MediaTek MiraVision Enhanced AV1 ———————————————-
MediaTek MiraVision offers a unique set of HDR video playback and display technologies that provide cinema-quality visuals to mobile devices. MediaTek’s MiraVision Enhanced Video Playback and AV1 hardware decoding are also included in the new processor, delivering cinema-quality visual experiences to the tiny screen.
- AI SDR-to-HDR with dynamic, per-frame PQ tuning, AI scene detection and contrast control
- Enhanced HDR10+ video playback
- Hardware-accelerated AV1 decoding ensures excellent power efficiency in 4K video playback from popular streaming services
Make the most of 5G every day ———————————————————————–
The 5G modem integrated into the chip provides profound power savings, super-fast 5G NR performance and range with mixed-duplex 5G carrier aggregation, and full dual 5G SIM functionality. Specialist additions such as ‘5G Elevator Mode’ and ‘5G HSR Mode’ offer smooth 5G experiences with quick recovery times and consistently quicker speeds, respectively.
