During the announcement event, MediaTek highlighted its partnerships with several companies to optimize ray tracing in games. As of now, more than 50 games of various genres have joined the Dimensity ray tracing ecosystem, incorporating the three leading engines of Unity, Unreal, and Messiah, providing gamers with a highly immersive visual experience.

Additionally, MediaTek emphasized its commitment to further developing the Dimensity platform's developer ecosystem, fostering deep collaborations with numerous game developers to establish a robust Dimensity game ecosystem.


MediaTek Dimensity 9300 APU features.

MediaTek said that the APU 790 delivers twice the AI processing power in both integer and floating-point operations, along with a 45% reduction in power consumption. Through the implementation of the Transformer model for operator acceleration, the APU 790 achieves a processing speed that is eight times faster than the previous generation. According to the company, it can generate images within one second using Stable Diffusion.

The APU 790 is equipped with NeuroPilot Fusion support, enabling continuous LoRA low-rank adaptation. Moreover, it can handle large language models featuring 1B, 7B, and 13B parameters, with the potential for scalability up to 33B.

AI Ecosystem -

Within the comprehensive AI ecosystem developed by MediaTek, the Dimensity 9300 is designed to support cutting-edge mainstream large language models, including Meta Llama 2, Baichuan 2, Baidu AI LLM, and more.

Utilizing the robust on-device AI capability of the Dimensity 9300, the display system efficiently detects primary objects and background images in real time. Teamed with the MiraVision Picture Quality (PQ) engine, it dynamically adjusts the contrast, sharpness, and color of primary objects, elevating the overall image quality with enhanced depth, and offering a lifelike video experience comparable to today's top-of-the-line DTVs, as per MediaTek.

Display and ISP -

Dimensity 9300 ISP features.

The Dimensity 9300 is capable of supporting always-on HDR up to 4K resolution at 60 frames per second (fps). Moreover, it facilitates a cinematic mode at 4K and 30 fps, incorporating real-time bokeh tracking for professional-grade bokeh enhancements. It also provides 4K AI Noise Reduction (AI-NR) and AI processing for RAW photos and videos.

The Imagiq 990 introduces a novel bidirectional direct coupling between the Image Signal Processor (ISP) and the APU, ensuring a zero-latency video preview experience. The 18-bit RAW ISP design includes an AI Semantic Analysis Video Engine equipped with 16 categories of scene segmentation adjustment, enhancing the visual appeal of cinematic video capture.

Furthermore, the Dimensity 9300 is set to support the upcoming Ultra HDR format within Android 14, catering to the requirements of the next generation of smartphones. It incorporates ambient light adaptive HDR recovery technology.

In terms of connectivity, the Dimensity 9300 is equipped with Wi-Fi 7 support and integrates MediaTek Xtra Range Technology, enabling improved long-range connectivity. According to the company, the MediaTek Multi-Link Hotspot technology enhances smartphone tethering speeds by up to three times compared to competitive solutions.
