Mediatek MT6589T

MT6589T

The Mediatek MT6589T is a low-end system-on-a-chip (SoC) found in many inexpensive smartphones. It is manufactured in 28 nm and integrates a Cortex-A7-based quad-core CPU clocked at 1.5 GHz, a PowerVR SGX544 GPU clocked at 357 MHz, dual SIM and UMTS/HSPA+ support (up to 21 Mbps) and 1080p30 video decoding and encoding.

Both the CPU and GPU offer performances similar to an Nvidia Tegra 3 or the Samsung Exynos 4412 and Mali-400 GPU. Performance-per-clock of the Cortex-A7 is only slightly below that of a Cortex-A9, which can be found in the two aforementioned rivals. The graphics unit offers sufficient power for multimedia tasks and simple games, but not for extremely high resolution displays or complex 3D graphics.

Thanks to the modern 28 nm manufacturing and comparatively low performance, the power consumption of the entire chip is likely very low in order to be compatible with smaller smartphones and battery capacities.
