Mediatek MT8121 vs Mediatek MT8127

Mediatek MT8121

► remove MT8121

The Mediatek MT8121 is a low-cost ARM SoC (System on a Chip) mainly used in tablets. It is manufactured in 28 nm and integrates a quad-core Cortex-A7 processor and a PowerVR SGX 544 GPU. The CPU cores are typically clocked at 1.3 GHz while the GPU is clocked at 156 MHz.

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.

Features

In addition to the processor and GPU, the SoC integrates a decoder for 1080p video, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 as well as GPS, but lacks a 2G/3G/4G radio. Cameras are supported up to a resolution of 13 MP.

Power consumption

Thanks to the energy-efficient A7 cores and 28 nm manufacturing, the power consumption is likely very low and suitable for even smaller tablets.

► 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.
