cyborg.bit, 30 Mar 2016I could already smell am awesome CPU fight in 2017 !! QC vs Exynos vs MTK !!!!!!Considering X20/X25, i wont hold my breathe for X30. And considering X30 was supossedly to be the competitor for SD820/E8890 they are like a year late to the party
Just as i predicted, X30 wont be competing with SD820/e8890. By the time they arrive in 2017, we'll have the next gen from both Qualcomm and Samsung. And X30 will lose to them again, claiming flagshit chipset for less than flagship performance. LoL...

Remember the Elephone and the Innos Yi Luo D6000?
They are 5in+ smartphones with at least 5000 mAH battery life.
The problem now is thinning them down as forever unsatisfied customers like you don't want a "fatty" phone.

Learn to read and get out of here: http://www.anandtech.com/show/9518/the-mobile-cpu-corecount-debate/18
Βtw the new Exynos shames SD820 in both battery and real life performance. High core count would always beat low core counts. Stop living in 00s when few multi threaded apps existed. Multi core is clearly the future because it's easy to increase performance that way instead of cramming mhz/ipc as if we live in 2000 ... wake up and smell the coffee.

Mobile gaming is a joke, mobile gpus are useless. Smart of Mediatek not to buy into the Hype. Also large gpus take up much of the much needed mobile ram. They're a double threat and they should be eliminated ... better use a gpu with good hardware acceleration, anything more is a waste. Mediatek is wise.
Yawn enough with this power saving and fast charging nonsense they are all marketing gimmick just give us a battery that lasts at least a week i am sure several technologies already exist to make this happen

This junk is just for marketing.specs race. This stupid soc will be in all the crappy no name phones that ruins android reputation. With crap software with no optimisation and no software support
aceofgenerations, 29 Mar 2016Mediatek is definitely impressing. It even has 10nm manufacturing process...damA believe MediaTec is FAB less (like apple), but mediatec is budget so will have to wait for fabrication to become affordable.
Boldy, 29 Mar 2016The thing is that high clocked GPUs throttle fast. Going wider and slower on GPU should be the... moretrue that, but keep in mind the 10nm manufacturing process, that could easily lead to current savings big enough to let the chip run through without throtteling. if other chips can output that kind of pixel power, the x30 should be able to do the same with a lower clock efficiency but a higher or the same overall efficiency due to the smaller process.
if thats the case, and its very likely so, the 4 core solution is the only right choice because it delivers good performance and is cheap at the same time. that means a good chip with a good gpu in midrange smartphones and thats something we all can profit in. even if we don't want to have medicore smartphones, the better the midrange gets, the higher is the pressure on the highend line to deliver even more.

I don't believe that this piece of cr#p would even be able to come close to SD820 (even SD810 will probably outperform it in graphic department LOL) yet to next generation 830... are you serious ?
