Marvell Armada PXA1908 vs MediaTek MT8161 vs MediaTek MT8163 V/A 1.5 GHz

Marvell Armada PXA1908

► remove from comparison

The Marvell Armada PXA1908 is an ARM based low end SoC for smartphones and tablets. The chip was announced in late 2014 and integrates four 64-Bit Cortex-A53 processor cores with up to 1.2 GHz. As a graphics card, the SoC integrates a Vivante GC7000UL. Furthermore, a LPDDR2/3 memory controller and a HSPA+/WCDMA/LTE Cat. 4 (max. 150 Mbit/s) radio is integrated. The SoC is manufactured in 28nm and also suited for small smartphones. 

MediaTek MT8161

► remove from comparison

The MediaTek MT8161 is an ARM based entry-level to mid-range SoC for (Android based) tablets. It offers four ARM Cortex-A53 processor cores (quad-core) that are clocked with up to 1.3 GHz. Furthermore, an ARM Mali-720 graphics card, a LPDDR3 memory controller (e.g., accessing 1 GB in the Lenovo Tab 2 A8-50), Bluetooth 4.0 and dual-band 802.11 b/g/n are integrated in the SoC.

The performance is situated in the entry level of 2015 and often similar to the Kirin 910T (see benchmark below).

MediaTek MT8163 V/A 1.5 GHz

► remove from comparison

The MediaTek MT8163 V/A is an ARM based entry-level to mid-range SoC for (Android based) tablets. It offers four ARM Cortex-A53 processor cores (quad-core) that are clocked with up to 1.5 GHz. Furthermore, an ARM Mali-T720 MP2 graphics card clocked at 600 MHz, a DDR3x32 1600Mbps memory controller, Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11 b/g/n, GPS and FM are integrated in the SoC.

The similar named MediaTek MT8163 V/B is the slower clocked version, with a CPU clock o up to 1.3 GHz (-6%) and GPU of up to 520 MHz (-13%).

The performance is situated in the entry level of 2015 and often similar to the Kirin 910T (see benchmark below).
