Recent rumors MediaTek will launch the world’s first 10-core chip, MediaTek although no positive response, but did not deny. And now MediaTek’s first 10 core chip Helio X20 processor released.
MediaTek official micro-Bo, MediaTek announced a single-chip solution for systems equipped with the world’s first Tri-Cluster architecture and 10-core processor Helio X20. Helio X20 industry breakthrough technological barriers, providing top mobile computing performance and ultra-low power management technology, integration of the global whole mode LTE Category 6 (Cat 6) modem, and the latest CorePilot3.0 heterogeneous computing technology.
Helio X20 the first time a three-cluster architecture, there are two high-performance core 2.5GHz A72, four balance between performance and power consumption of the 2.0GHz A53 core, four low-load tasks and energy saving 1.4GHz A53 core, performance called terrible. Also Helio X20 is equipped with GPU not exposed, but it may be Mali T800 series.
In conclusion, Helio X20 total of the following characteristics:
1, the image sensor supports up to 32 million pixels, dual ISP improved noise reduction, sharpness, supports native 3D;
2, the video decoding support 10bit 4K H.264 / H.265 / VP coding, reducing power consumption by 30%;
3, GPU performance upgrades, though the GPU Helio X20 model has not been announced, but MediaTek said performance than the previous generation 40% increase;
4, LTE network speed from 150Mbps upgrade to 300Mbps, support the seven-way full Netcom, Telecom users can also use, do not know is carrying or external baseband;
Of course, in order to control costs, MediaTek Helio X20 still using 20nm process technology, with LPDDR3 memory, compared to the competitors have entered the 14nm process, the future of Helio X20 experience how we have to wait to get the product to be known.
