The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 has a multi-core score of around 7,500, while the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max have multi-core scores between 7,000 and 7,200.

Joe Chen, President at MediaTek, says that the Dimensity 9300 is their most powerful flagship chip yet, with a new architecture called All Big Core that gives it a huge boost in raw computing power. The Dimensity 9300 also has an upgraded AI Processing Unit (APU) that will enable new generative AI applications on smartphones.
The tech maker offers an octa-core design with 1x Cortex-X4 @ 3.25GHz, 3x Cortex-X4 @ 2.85GHz, and 4x Cortex-A720 @ 2.0GHz. Coupled with MediaTek APU 790 AI processor and Arm Immortalis-G720 12-core in the GPU department, the tech maker boasts that it has “8 times faster” speed than the previous generation.
