Mediatek MT8389 vs MediaTek MT6572

Mediatek MT8389

► remove from comparison  MT8389

The Mediatek MT8389 is a low-cost ARM SoC (System on a Chip) used 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 1.2 - 1.5 GHz, while the GPU is clocked at 300 MHz. The official specifications of the MT8389 are identical to the MT8125 SoC.

Performance

Since the Cortex-A7 architecture is somewhat slower than a Krait or Cortex-A9 design at the same clock speed, the performance of the MT8389 is just below Nvidia's Tegra 3 or the Samsung Exynos 4412. The PowerVR SGX 544 is also just a simple low-cost solution not designed for ultra-high resolution displays or very demanding games.

Features

In addition to processor and GPU, the SoC also integrates a decoder for 1080p video, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, FM radio, GPS and 2G/3G radios (up to HSPA+). 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 low enough to be a fit for tablets.

MediaTek MT6572

► remove from comparison  MT6572

The dual-core Mediatek MT6572 is an entry-level ARM SoC found in a number of Android smartphones and tablets. It contains two Cortex-A7 CPU cores and an ARM Mali-400 graphics card. The CPU cores are typically clocked at 1.2 GHz and the GPU core at 500 MHz. Furthermore, an LPDDR2 memory controller, a 2G/3G (HSPA+) radio, 720p video decoder, WLAN, Bluetooth and GPS modules are integrated onto the chip. 

Performance

As the Cortex A7 architecture is slightly slower per clock than the older Cortex-A9 or Krait cores, the CPU performance is approximately on the same level as a Samsung Exynos 4210 or similar. The ARM Mali-400 GPU is only an entry-level graphics card unsuited for demanding Android 3D games.

Power Consumption

Due to the power-efficient Cortex-A7 cores and the 28 nm manufacturing process, the power consumption of the Mediatek MT6572 is low enough to be used in smaller smartphones.
