Remember all those rumors you heard about an actual existing TRUE eight core processor? Well, yes, they were true. MediaTek just launched the new MediaTek MT6592. This chip, MediaTek claims is the is world’s first true octa-core mobile platform that can utilize full capabilities of all eight cores in any combination, both for low-power and more demanding tasks.This is achieved by allowing all eight of its cores to run simultaneously.
This chip will be able to be used on both smartphone devices and tablets.This comes as great news for gamers who will also benefit from the chips processing speed which clocks at 2GHz.the MT6592 has eight CPU cores, each capable of clock speeds up to 2GHz. The true octa-core architecture is fully scalable, and the MT6592 runs both low-power and more demanding tasks equally effectively by harnessing the full capabilities of all eight cores in any combination. Gameloft in fact announced that they had partnered with MediaTek and that the upcoming Modern Combat 5 would be fully optimized to suit and utilize the power of the MT6592 Octa-Core chip.Not to mention that the chip has,built into it a 700 MHz Mali 450-MP4 GPU for enhanced graphics. Summed,here’s what the MT6592 octa-core chip has to offer:
- It supports the latest codecs – H.265 and VP9
- The chip has an advanced MediaTek scheduling algorithm that monitors temperature and power consumption for optimum performance
- It has an advanced multi-mode cellular modem
- The chip can support up to 16-megapixels onboard camera.
- The MT6592 features a Heterogeneous Multi-Processing (HMP) that distributes the workload to different processors and other specialized computing engines to optimize performance as a whole.
- ARM Cortex-A7 processor in an octa-core configuration that can clock up to 2 GHz per core
- Support for Full HD 1080p displays
- Ultra-HD 4Kx2K H.264 video playback
This in my opinion sound like quite a beast,as for the devices that will sport this chip,Intex has announced that it is in a partnership with MediaTek to produce a smartphone with their chip. Zopo as well, have just announced the Zopo ZP998,which comes with a 5.5 inch full high-definition display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and 401 pixels per inch, the device also comes with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage and of course the MT6592 chip.
