MediaTek Releases Worlds First True Octa-Core Mobile SoC


MediaTek has done what many would have never anticipated a couple of months ago. The supplier of cheap quad-core chipsets to Chinese Smartphone manufacturers has announced the world’s first true Octa-core processor, where all 8 cores work together in tandem, and will reportedly feature performance that matches or surpasses that of the most powerful mobile SoC (based on ARM) currently, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC.


Here are the advantages touted by MediaTek of using its “true” Octa-core solution:

It wasn’t a big surprise when the company share price saw a healthy boost in value shortly after the announcement of the world’s first true Octa-core mobile chipset, which by the way is dubbed the MediaTek MT6592 SoC.


As of now, we know that the SoC features eight ARM Cortex A7 based CPUs and a PowerVR SGX6xx Rouge series GPU, making it the first chipset maker in the world to release an SoC featuring PowerVR’s next-generation (and power-packed) 6 series Rogue GPU.

Products based on the new MT6592 Octa-core chipset is expected to hit the markets towards the end of 2013. Expect a fresh wave of the Chinese super-Smartphones which pack specifications rivalling $750 flagships for just a third of the price.
