MediaTek’s Dimensity 9400 to Feature Largest Die Size in Smartphone Chipsets

MediaTek is getting ready to push boundaries with its Dimensity 9400 as recent rumors suggest that the system on chip (SoC), will have the die size ever seen in a smartphone platform. This increase in size is anticipated to accommodate over 30 billion transistors marking a 32 percent jump from the 22.7 billion transistors found in the MediaTek Dimensity 9300.

In terms of die size details information from @faridofanani96 and @negativeonehero on X reveals that the Dimensity 9400 will measure 150mm². To put this into perspective NVIDIA’s GT 1030 has a size of 74mm² while the NVIDIA GTX 1650 boasts a size of 200mm². Essentially we are talking about a smartphone chipset with a size to that of a desktop graphics processor which is quite remarkable. The clear advantages of having a die size include enabling companies like MediaTek to incorporate transistors as well as offering a larger cache and Neural Processing Unit.

However, there are drawbacks involved in terms of cost. With TSMCs expected utilization of the ‘N3E’ process at 3nm for production, the MediaTek Dimensity 9400 could potentially become MediaTek’s most expensive smartphone SoC yet. Fortunately, there are benefits too such as enhanced GPU performance and efficiency.

There are rumors circulating about a 20% increase in performance compared to the model, which could surpass the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 4. Earlier reports mentioned that the MediaTek Dimensity 9400 was facing problems linked to ARM’s Cortex X5 and an increase in power usage.

It is plausible that MediaTek has addressed these concerns by enlarging the SoC’s die size, although confirmation is pending. Hopefully, we will see robust competition in the market later this year. As always, we will provide comparisons as soon as they become available, so stay tuned for updates.


  1. Why is a larger die size beneficial in chipsets like the Dimensity 9400?

    A larger die size allows for more transistors, potentially improving performance, and efficiency, and adding extra features like larger caches and NPUs.
