  • MediaTek’s Dimensity 9400 chipset will have a powerful CPU, according to a new leak.
  • A leaker claimed that the processor will use Cortex-X5, Cortex-X4, and Cortex-A700 series CPU cores.

MediaTek made a huge splash when it announced the Dimensity 9300 chipset late last year, as this processor eschewed little CPU cores in favor of powerful CPU cores only. It looks like the Taiwanese chip designer could stick with this aggressive approach for its next-generation chip.

Weibo leaker Digital Chat Station claimed that the Dimensity 9400 will ditch little CPU cores once again in favor of using the Cortex-X5, Cortex-X4, and Cortex-A7xx series cores. The leaker didn’t reveal a CPU layout, but if it’s anything like the Dimensity 9300 then we can expect one Cortex-X5, three Cortex-X4 cores, and four Cortex-A730 cores.
