Xz8441, 16 Mar 2016Mediatek, spam your low performance cores all you want, but you still won't win against the SD... moreI don't think they're even expecting that, remember: Mediatek focuses on providing nice performance at a cheaper price.
Anonymous, 16 Mar 2016Smartphones larger than 5 "are too much overweighted in the product range of manufacturers.
... moremost huge phones that you describe are much more compact these days.
phones are giving 6 inches in a body smaller than iphone 6s plus.
Xz8441, 16 Mar 2016Well there may be some small optimizations on the efficiency or it may just never reach the ad... moreYeah its a gimmick, but its also a false statement, that energy has to come from somewhere, you cant speedup and use the same energy, unless you use different manufacturing process, etc... so a change only to speed will use more energy
Anonymous, 16 Mar 2016Unless the car driven in question has an all-electric powertrain or has a drivetrain that runs... moreLOL its all about kinetic to potential energy, so you have two system doing work instead of one, but the energy still has to come from somewhere... you cant speed up and use less energy, if that was the case the universe would be a very different place.

Mediatek u should go with 10nm to be step forward from other companies and not just follow. Create 8 core processors, 16 core flagship - not big small architecture, make all cores can work at the same time and have the same speed. Take your GPU step forward an not just follow. Create good marketing plan! Brainwash people for a year and there u go! ;)
Still on 28nm fabrication process? No way! Mediatek should know how to step up theyre game, focus on how to make it it on 16nm fabrication process or even 14, 20, not by just adding cores which is useless most of the time.
just give an incredibly brilliant dual core or quad core rather than adding numbers to make yourselves sound better.
I'm not sure why the whole lot of upgrades on mobile phone's CPU and GPU. what they need to focus on (idk if im the only thinking on this) is the battery life of a mobile phone. you have a powerful GPU and CPU but your battery life is being consumed and to think that most of the smartphones now does have non removable batteries. one more thing, specs of your phone be like:
CPU: octacore, hexacore all cores, unlicores etc etc...
RAM: unlimited GB
Camera: unli pixel
apps: unlimited apps
games: unlimited games
Battery: 5000mah (what do you think how long it will last?)
Time you can use your phone: working hours in the office 8hours, travel time 2 hours max, quality time for gf/bf/family 4 hours, ME time 2 hours, 8 hours sleep. do we think that we can maximize our phone that much?
i dont think.
Nowadays, i see smartphones as disposable, every quarter new modes arrive, bigger specs, but not a necessity.
i dont understand why it required a name change, other then for marketing purposes. can almost guarantee you this is nothing more then binning. these cheaps are just center wafer , so can be clocked higher, nothing more.
Assefa, 16 Mar 2016you are right but thats pretty obvious, meaditek says the direct competitor to the 820 is the x30It's not even out yet and by the time it is, maybe it'll be competing with SD830 or Exynos 9000+ by then :)
eh, 16 Mar 2016but, currently mediatek "high end" are only x10 and x20.
current mediatek "High end" is on pa... moreIn terms of GPU performance, yes.
In terms of CPU performance, no. Benchmarks and personal reviews did show a good rating for the Helio X series
I agree with you though as GPU performance among all the handset I owned will ALWAYS eat up CPU performance and will cause lag and other performance issues.
Anonymous, 16 Mar 2016Smartphones larger than 5 "are too much overweighted in the product range of manufacturers. ... moreThe majority of consumers like bigger phones now. It's just the way it is. In time, smaller phones will be widely accepted again.
Smartphones larger than 5 "are too much overweighted in the product range of manufacturers.
These huge "smart" phones fit in any shirt pocket and in a jeans pocket they invite you to theft
Users with hands like toilet seats are CLEARLY in the minority.
There are far too few devices between 4.6 - 5.0 "with SoC like 650, X20 or Exynos 7420 with 2 -3 RAM and a 3,000mAh battery.
Hopefully Apple initializes a turnaround!
Cancelling the Pro 5 Mini they missed an opportunity - imo
answer to some body don't know any thing about mediate. now the 3rd place in chipset market. first is great quallcom and second is favorite name as apple. but 3rd place emerges with mediate name. why some body say don't use mediate devices. I have htc one M9+ and it's very faster than my brother galaxy s6 edge. also M9+ is better than my previous htc one E8 and xperia z2. I compare it with many smartphone and was better especially in multi tasking. but Gpu is very low in comparison with adreno 430. I belive mediate high class chips.
I say again I have htc one M9+ with mediate helio X10 and enjoy of it.
Mirkran, 16 Mar 2016But the SD650 and 652 use stock ARM cores (A72 and A53) and they're still more powerful than t... moreNailed it. Cortex-A72 even better than both Kryo and Mongoose considering Kirin 950.
Snapdragon 820 and Exynos 8890 can only deliver their respective peak performances with 2 core, yet early reports mentions heating.
Cortex-A72 at Helio X20 gonna be different story hence its manufactured inferior 20nm planar process comparison to 14/16nm FinFET high-end SoCs. Snapdragon 650/652 has been manufacturing even more inferior 28nm planar process.
