And getting closer to 8 Gen 2
It looks like MediaTek has regained its title as the developer of the most powerful mid-budget platform. New tests of SoC Dimensity 8300-Ultra have appeared on the Internet, and the results are impressive.
It's worth starting with absolute indicators. The CPU test shows that the Dimensity 8300-Ultra is on par with the Dimensity 9000/9200 and Apple A14 and is slightly ahead of the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1. The lag behind the Dimensity 9200 Plus is also slight.
But the GPU test looks even more interesting. Here, MediaTek's new product easily beats Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1, Dimensity 9000 and noticeably, but not very much, lags behind Dimensity 9200 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. At the same time, let us remind you that Redmi K70E based on the new SoC costs only $280 , and this is in a 12/256 GB configuration.
It can also be seen that the energy efficiency of the new platform is also very good.
It remains to wait for the Redmi K70E tests to understand how the SoC behaves in real scenarios and what it has with throttling.
