MediaTek’s Dimensity 9300 SoC scores 2,055,084 points in AnTuTu v10, putting it ahead of the Exynos 2400 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. Similarly, its Geekbench scores of 2,139 and 7,110 also give it a slight multi-core lead over the competition.

MediaTek’s upcoming flagship SoC, the Dimensity 9300, has been conspicuously missing from benchmarking platforms like Geekbench. It was rumoured earlier that its all-P-core configuration resulted in bad thermals. Now, the chipset has finally made its debut on Geekbench and AnTuTu.

In AnTuTu, the Dimensity 9300 scores 2,055,084 points (CPU: 485,064, GPU: 899,463, MEM: 357,691, UI/UX: 312,866). This represents a whopping 50% performance uplift over the Dimensity 9200+ (1,368,597) and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. However, Digital Chat Station over at Weibo says they have seen the Dimensity 9300 score higher. An earlier leak said that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 also scores 2 million points in AnTuTu, indicating that both chips could trade blows in real-world performance.

This is further confirmed by Geekbench 6.1 listings of both chips. A Snapdragon 8 Gen 3-powered Xiaomi 14 scores 2,244 and 6,820 in the benchmark’s single and multi-core tests. Similarly, the Dimensity 9300-powered Oppo Find X7 (tentative) scores 2,139 and 7,110. The multi-core victory isn’t surprising, given the Dimensity 9300’s CPU architecture. It even defeats the Exynos 2400 (2,057/6,520) across the board despite packing fewer CPU cores overall.

MediaTek seems to have nerfed the Dimensity 9300’s clocks. While its prime Cortex-X4 core operates at 3.25 GHz, the 3x Cortex-X4 cluster runs at 2.85 GHz (as opposed to 3 GHz predicted earlier). Lastly, its Cortex-A720 cluster is set at 3.0 GHz. It also has an Arm Immortalis G720 GPU, whose clocks are yet to be determined.
