MediaTek unveils octa-core Helio P10 SoC
Just over two weeks ago, MediaTek released its high-end, deca-core SoC, the Helio X20. Today, the Chinese chip maker continues its offensive by launching the mid-range Helio P10.
MediaTek Helio P10 is an octa-core, 64-bit SoC, based on ARM Cortex-A53 architecture and clocked up to 2 GHz. The new chip has been manufactured with TSMC’s 28nm HPC+ process, which allows for reduced processor power consumption.
Graphics is provided by dual-core, also 64-bit, Mali-T860 MP2 GPU, working at 700 MHz. It offers up to 45 percent better performance than its predecessor, Mali-T628.
The CPU supports dual-channel, 32-bit LPDDR3, 800 MHz memory modules, as well as MiraVision 2.0 technology, allowing wireless streaming of Full HD, 60 fps video.
The new chip features LTE Cat.6 with transfer speeds up to 300/50 Mbps, WiFi 802.11 ac and Bluetooth LE (Low Energy) modules. It also comes with TruBright ISP, allowing devices with Helio P10 to use a single 21MP camera or a 16MP/8MP dual camera setup with phase detection autofocus.
MediaTek Helio P10 will be available Q3 2015 and is expected to be in consumer products in late 2015.
