Mediatek MT6589T vs Mediatek MT6582 vs Mediatek MT8321

Mediatek MT6589T

► remove from comparison 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.

Mediatek MT6582

► remove from comparison MT6582

The Mediatek MT6582 is a system-on-a-chip (SoC) for low-cost tablets and smartphones. It is manufactured in 28 nm and offers a quad-core Cortex-A7 processor as well as an ARM Mali-400 MP2 GPU clocked at 500 MHz (according to Wikipedia the main difference to the MT6582M that is clocked at 416 MHz). Furthermore, the chip supports dual SIM, UMTS and HSPA+, WiFi, FM, Bluetooth and GPS. 

The CPU performance of the MT6582 is similar to other Cortex-A7 SoCs clocked at the same frequency. Depending on the benchmark, the CPU power is roughly comparable with the Nvidia Tegra 3 and sufficient for everyday applications such as browsing. The GPU will handle only simple Android games in moderate resolutions.

Mediatek MT8321

► remove from comparison MT8321

The Mediatek MT8321 is a low-cost ARM SoC (System on a Chip) mainly used in smartphones. It is most likely manufactured in 28 nm and integrates a quad-core Cortex-A7 processor and a ARM Mali-400 MP2. The CPU cores are clocked at up to 1.3 GHz while the GPU is clocked at up to 500 MHz. Furthermore, the chip includes a EDGE / HSPA+ / WDCDMA radio and 802.11 b/g/n WiFi. The integrated single channel memory controller supports LPDDR3 RAM.

Performance

Since the Cortex-A7 architecture is somewhat slower than a Krait or Cortex-A9 design at the same clock speeds, the performance of the MT8121 is just below Nvidia's Tegra 3 or the Samsung Exynos 4412. The PowerVR SGX 544 is also just a low-cost solution not designed for ultra-high resolution displays or very demanding games.
