MediaTek working on Helio P35 processor
MediaTek is introducing the next generation of its flagship 10 core chipset with its Helio X30. The new top chips from Samsung and Qualcomm are also already in the starting holes.
The next generation of smartphone chipsets comes with at least eight processors, with clock rates of up to 4 GHz and support for a maximum of eight GB of memory: Mediatek has now introduced the X30 as the first manufacturer to present its new flagship. But some information has already been released to the public on the upcoming Samsung and Qualcomm models. Reason enough to take a look at the new chipset generation.
Mediatek’s Helio X30 is the successor to the mid-2015 X20 chip, with its ten-core design for attention. The X30 also has ten data cores, made up of three clusters. However, the new chip is produced in a more efficient 10nm process.
Mediateks Helio X30, like its predecessor, is based on a three-cluster concept.
A cortex-A73 dual core is installed for compute-intensive tasks. According to official data, this clock rate is up to 2.8 GHz and is up to 30 percent more powerful and efficient compared to its predecessor generation. The dual core features two quad-core Cortex-A35-based clusters with 2.2 and 2 GHz clocking. The smaller quad cores are designed for medium to light tasks and are designed to help reduce energy requirements. In the graphics unit, Mediatek relies on the Quad Core GPU PowerVR 7XT. The Helio X30 chip supports a maximum of 8 GB of RAM and UFS 2.1 memory. When the market launch of the chip will take place, Mediatek has not yet explained. By 2017, however, the Helio X30 is not likely to hit the market.
Samsung Exynos 8895 Until then, Samsung is also likely to have completed the development of its new chip flagship Exynos 8895. This is to be manufactured for the first time in 10nm construction and has reached in tests clock rates of up to 4 GHz. For comparison, the current Exynos 8890 from the Galaxy Note 7 was still manufactured with 14nm technology and works with a maximum of 2.3 GHz. Its debut is likely to celebrate the Exynos 8895 with the market launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8.
