The mobile MediaTek Dimensity 9300 is said to have 4 powerful Cortex-X4 cores

Company MediaTek is preparing a new mobile processor Dimensity 9300 (the successor to the 9200) and the leaked information about it is quite strange. Most mobile phone processors come in two types of configurations, with two or three types of cores. If there are two, we usually have 2 or 4 powerful cores and the rest are economical. In the three types of cores, one of the powerful ones is usually replaced by an extremely powerful core, today it is the Cortex-X series. However, according to leaks, the Dimensity 9300 should have many more such cores, there is talk of four. It should be Cortex-X4 cores, and the first question mark is already raised here. How does MediaTek want to cool this down?

To make matters worse, the remaining four are not to be composed of economical cores (usually Cortex-A5xx), but of powerful ones (Cortex-A7xx). The leaks talk about the Hunter-ELP cores (this is supposed to be the successor of Cortex-X3, i.e. probably Cortex-X4) and Hunter (which are the successors of Cortex-A715, i.e. probably Cortex-A720), so there is no talk of energy-saving cores at all. And here the first question is repeated, how does MediaTek want to cool it reasonably? Today’s configurations like 1+3+4 and the like are very hot and hot, but what about 4+4+0?

Something like that sounds rather unlikely for phones, because it would probably be often limited by throttling due to the temperatures, and the endurance of the phones would drop quite a bit even under low load. If such a processor were to be introduced, I would rather see it not as Dimensity 9300, but more likely as Kompanio for chromebooks and other laptops built on the ARM architecture. How it will turn out in the end remains to be seen, and for now we can only guess.
