Mediatek MT6589T vs Mediatek MT8127

Mediatek MT6589T

► remove 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.

► remove MT8127

The MediaTek MT8127 is a cheap ARM-SoC (System on a Chip) that is mainly used in Android based tablets. It is manufactured in 28 nm and integrates a quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz (typically), a ARM Mali-450 MP4 graphics card (at 600 MHz) and a single channel 32 Bit DDDR3-1333 memory controller (max. 5.3 GB/s).

Processor

The ARM Cortex-A7 design is a 32-Bit entry level core with a much lower performance per MHz than the Cortex-A9. Therefore, the MT8127 is only positioned in the lower mid-range similar to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400.

Features

The MT8127 integrates function blocks for full HD videos (en- and decoders), WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and FM radio. Camera modules are supported up to 13 MP.

Power Consumption

Due to the low clocked Cortex-A7 cores and the small GPU, the SoC is using not much power and therefore also suited for small tablets.
