Anonymous, 09 Aug 2016Too many cores!! 8 should be the max.. Please have mercy on the battery mediatek Not all cores are used at the same time,they are like a car with 3 gears!
The first part with the 2 cores clocked at 2GHz is like the energy saving mode,the second part with the 4 core part with the cores clocked at 2.2GHz is for heavier work loads and the last part with the 4 A73 cores clocked at 2.8GHz will be for extremely heavy work load!
Also the CPU will use the 10nm architecture that will be more power efficient and with less heat output,in addition there might be a more powerful GPU inside because the CPU cores will take less space and produce less heat so that means that they can put more GPU cores inside at higher clock speeds!!

Anonymous, 09 Aug 2016Use only 4 cores A73 at 2.8GHz and ditch the rest.
Oh, and release it next month, not next ... morePersonally. I know I'm not a MTK worker. I'd keep the mid cluster of 2.2 GHz and ditch the low cluster. Or atleast swap the A53 with A57 even though it's a "BIG" core. (for middle cluster that is)
as for GPU. Hmm... I think Hexa core GPU will run better than Quad imho but that's just my opinion.
no matter how powerful they are, they are all suk because they are not developer friendly. Dont buy phone with Mediatek or Kirin. Go to Hauwei mate 7/8 forum and you know why. Phone is beautiful and powerful, but no custom rom. I rather buy midrange phone with sn650/652.

Can you tell me what you've read because what you're posting makes me confused. Previously you wrote about using only 4 cores and now you're saying you read something before I did, which I didn't. What the f? I wrote this stuff here mostly by pure logic and read stuff on the ARM page. You're considering me smart? Thank you. Now for real, stop hating on me for no actual reason. I proved you wrong because you tried to act smart by saying only to use 4 cores and that's it. Nothing is that simple.
Edit: Please post the link of what you've read because I'm really interested in what is your base of these nonsense posts.
divis200, 09 Aug 2016How ignorant can you people be? Do you know the meaning of the other cores? A73 cores are used... moreNo one is ignorant here ... I read it all in AnandTech long before you did Mr. know-it-all internet expert
Anonymous, 09 Aug 2016Use only 4 cores A73 at 2.8GHz and ditch the rest. Oh, and release it next month, not next ... moreHow ignorant can you people be? Do you know the meaning of the other cores? A73 cores are used for most demanding tasks and of course they probably use more power than average. Imagine using highest performance cores for tasks such as music listening. This is really inefficient. A53 cores are used for average tasks, such as video playback, browsing and etc. A35 cores are very efficient (they use less than 90mW at 1GHz so in this case it would use around 180mW), but not very powerful (could actually power smartphones by themselves). They are used for not demanding tasks like music listening, texting. If all of the cores other than A73 were ditched, the battery life would suffer a lot. By a lot I mean could be even up to 50% or more.
Very wise move. I guess Kirin and Mediatech create the best super mid SoCs with highest value for money compared to others. On the other hand Samsung, Qualcomm and Apple tend to create the best premium SoCs. I see Helio X30 as an endeavour to close this gap more than ever.
Anonymous, 09 Aug 2016If you do not know anything about processors. Then don't comment. Who cares if Apple is using ... more u simply didnt read my comment all the way to the end , the fact u say exynos use 8 cores when i said that 8 cores are good as long its in 2 clusters not 3 makes my point . and u missing my point or maybe dnt understand it , my point is 2 clusters of cpus is better optimized for android system than 3 clusters ... give hellio X10 A73 cores and that GPU and u got urself better chip than this new Helio X30 .....
Use only 4 cores A73 at 2.8GHz and ditch the rest.
Oh, and release it next month, not next year.
regs, 09 Aug 2016So MediaTek still make CPUs just for statistics. More cores for statistics that will never be ... moreYou can underclock it but that would immensely stupid, not to say inefficient on just A73 cores...
galaxyS7, 09 Aug 2016Why are you so negative dude?. Just imagine if it's super fast and power efficient at the same... morethat sounds great if it happens , but thats too many wishes dnt u think. so why not use something that is real instead of making wishes.
AnonD-563937, 09 Aug 2016it seems some people will allways go with their wrong plans untill they are ruined , the fact ... moreIf you do not know anything about processors. Then don't comment. Who cares if Apple is using dual cores? Is Apple running android? Run Android on Apple's dual core and see what a fail it will be.
Also Exynos has 8 core. More parallel a cpu is the more efficient it is. 4 cores at 50% is both faster and uses less power than a dual core at 100%.
So MediaTek still make CPUs just for statistics. More cores for statistics that will never be in use due to overheat.
They better make 3-core A73 underclocked with powerful graphics for smooth interface, web browsing and and games.
Instead, i guess, they will for slow overlocked GT7200.
Too many cores!! 8 should be the max.. Please have mercy on the battery mediatek
