MediaTek has woken up in a big way and is willing to fight Qualcomm
MediaTek had been ostracized for some time after failing to make its processors compete with those of its main rivals. However, with the passage of time has recovered the freshness of yesteryear and have achieved a level of development and innovation that is unparalleled. Recently made the surprise with its new Dimensity 9300 against Qualcommbut this is nothing new, since it has been going on since the launch of the first 9000+ achieving some very good numbers.
Now it seems that their mid range phones They will be equipped with processors really powerful who are going to bet on generative Artificial Intelligence to gain a foothold in a market that until now had not innovated much.
This is what the MediaTek Dimensity 8300 are like
MediaTek’s new mid-range processor has wickers of become what is today a high-end. Thus, it has an 8-core configuration, with four for performance and another four for low consumption. Specifically, we find a Cortex-A715 core at 3.35 GHz accompanied by three other Cortex-A715 cores with 3GHz. On the other hand, there would be the low consumption block with the 2.2 GHz Cortex A510. The system caches would be 4 Mb.
The graphics processing unit would fall on a powerful six-core ARM Mali-G615, so we could play everything without problem.
However, the most interesting aspect is the ability you will have to manage the generative artificial intelligence directly from your processor. For this reason, it has a 780 APU capable of having 10 billion parameters inside and stable diffusion image generation. In this way, we would be faced a fairly advanced processor although a step below the Dimensity 9300 which is capable of supporting 33 billion parameters.
In short, we can assure that:
- MediaTek wants generative AI to not be something exclusive to the high-end.
- For this reason, they have launched the new MediaTek Dimensity 8300, capable of supporting language models with up to 10 billion parameters.
- It does not reach the height of the top of the range, but it is true that it is capable of managing a fairly high number of parameters.
- In another order of issues, it will have eight cores in its CPU and six cores in its Mali-G615 GPU.
It was to be expected that mobile technology companies would opt to include this type of issues in their processors. After all, it is the current revolution, the fashion product and it is completely necessary to have this type of functionality to ensure that mobile telephony takes a step forward again to once again be at the technological forefront that smart devices once occupied.
