The company MediaTek has officially unveiled the world’s first eight-core chip MT6592, aimed at mobile devices, high-end segment.
According to the manufacturer, the new product will be a very in demand due to rising demand for smart phones with high performance. Chinese manufacturer focuses on the fact that in the upcoming MT6592 can be active all the processor cores, not just four core CPU, just in case Exynos Octa 5, on the basis of which is based smartphone Samsung Galaxy S4.
MediaTek2 However, once it is necessary to clarify that in SoC MediaTek MT6592 uses eight processor cores Cortex-A7, performed at rates 28-nanometer process technology and operating with a frequency of 1.7 – 2.0 GHz. Another nice addition to the MediaTek MT6592 chip will be updated graphics core PowerVR SGX544MP. According to the resource gizchina.com, with PowerVR SGX544MP composition is from 2 to 16 cores, and in the foreseeable future, their number can be increased to 64.
MediaTek3 Earlier in the network has information that the test samples MediaTek MT6592 chip in the test package AnTuTu gather about 30,000 points, which is consistent with the results of high-power SoC Samsung and Qualcomm.
The company MediaTek, in turn, reported that the new product will be able to significantly speed up the Web (redistribution of tasks among all cores), as well as help to achieve maximum detail in modern 3D-games and smoothness of the user interface.
In the video decoding 1080p format HEVC (H.265) MT6592 power consumption is reduced up to 18 percent compared with the quad counterparts. It also reported that the new chip delivers 20 percent more frames in normal use smartphone.
Mass production of MediaTek MT6592 single-chip systems is planned for November, and the appearance of the first devices based on this chip is already waiting at the end of the year.
