World's first true octa-core processor announced by mediatek

MediaTek has officially unveiled the world's first true octa-core processor. The latest SoCs allows all the eight cores to run simultaneously, unlike the Samsung's Exynos 5 octa, which can activate up to half of its CPU cores at once. The true octa-core processors offers enhanced performance, power efficiency and improved user experience.
By allowing tasks to run concurrently with the use of multiple different cores, MediaTek True Octa-Core intelligently allocates processing power to where it is needed, both on a per-application and per-task basis. With MediaTek True Octa-Core, users can enjoy heavy web downloading, hardcore gaming, high-quality premium video viewing or other types of rigorous multitasking without experiencing lag times or excessive battery consumption.

MediaTek true octa-core features (as claimed by the company)

  • Advanced web browsing: With the unique ability to allocate individual browser tabs to CPU cores, MediaTek True Octa-Core allows for a faster, more stable web browsing experiences.
  • Smoother user interfaces: With the ability to delegate user inputs to individual cores and render 3D effects more smoothly, the functionality and appearance of user interfaces in both applications and operating systems are significantly enhanced.
  • Superior gaming experiences: The advanced multi-threaded programming deployed in the MediaTek True Octa-Core, enables different sequences to be allocated to different cores, delivering enhanced video frame-rate processing and exceptionally low-latency gaming experiences.
  • Efficient video playback: When on decoding mode, the battery used for decoding HEVC (H.265) FHD video can be reduced by up to 18 percent compared to current quad-core solutions. While on display mode, MediaTek True Octa-Core provides users 20 percent more frames.
Android devices featuring the chip are expected to hit the markets in late september,the processors are expected to be clocked at 1.7GHz-2 GHz range. This chip could be a turning point  for MediaTek which was offering low-Mid range solutions till now.
Stay tuned for more updates
