After a few long months full of rumors and leaks MediaTek finally unveils the MT6592 SoC, described as "the world’s first heterogeneous computing SOC with scalable eight-core processing."

The MediaTek MT6592 uses eight CPU cores capable of clock speeds up to 2 GHz each and has a fully scalable architecture. The graphics engine packs four cores and offers support for Ultra-HD 4Kx2K H.264 video playback, as well as for new codecs such as VP9 and H.265, Full HD displays and 16 MP cameras.

The MediaTek ClearMotion technology allows automatic conversion of 24/30 fps video content to 60 fps video for an improved visual experience. More than these, the MT6592 comes with support for Miracast screen-sharing, dual-band 801.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and even a FM tuner.

According to MediaTek's General Manager of the Smartphone Business Unit, Jeffrey Ju "The MT6592 delivers longer battery life, low-latency response times and the best possible mobile multimedia experience. Being the first to market with this advanced eight-core SOC is testament to the industry-leading position of MediaTek." 

This chip offers excellent performance for the price and first devices using it are expected to arrive before the end of the year running Jelly Bean, while first MT6592-powered smartphones and tablets loaded with Android 4.4 KitKat should arrive in early 2014.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
