ReesanVaine, 11 Mar 2017I know. But a decent GPU from Mediatek is what I was suggesting. ^^;They do....
Gpu on X30 will be 2.4 time more powerfull than X20.
PowerVR cores are bigger than Mali : 1 powervr=2 Mali
It brings probably GPU 20% over Apple A9...(4 cores 800Mhz vs 6 cores 450Mhz)
And over 820. As Mediatek main goal on X30 is stability, GPU in real games will probably be even greater!

The phrase "xx nm node" means that the smallest spacing between repeated features on a chip along one direction is xx nm. It does not actually mean that transistors are now xx nm by xx nm.
Samsung and TSMC may well get out a 7nm process that is less advanced than Intel's 10nm. The fact that all of these processes are FinFET is far more important than the nm.

TSMC will manufacture the chip designed by MediaTek.
I dont understand how they beating Intel in the nanometer race? Intel are struggling to bring out 10nm chips, and still have 14nm out there at the moment, phone chip manufacturers seem to be doing it with not much problem

But currently only two companies make chips at 10 nm = Samsung with Exynos 8895 and Snapdragon 835 (yes, the SD is manufactured by Samsung. The other company is MediAtek.

They just meant that samsung develops and manufactures it on their own.

I use s6edge+ to shoot videos cuz better audio n video then iphone. Then i use imovie to edit those videos cuz best video editor. and sync it to iphone. And when i upload the videos to youtube it gets hot as hell. Iphone does open apps faster. But thats whr the good part ends. Now when i wanna go thru a lot of articles. I visit the main website n long oress n open various tabs. Upto 25-30 tabs at once. Cuz i dont like going back n again clicking on a link. I orefer that page is already loaded. I can open 35 tabs on chrome on android without any slowing down. But on iphone or ipad when i cross 10-12 the operation becomes slow. Thrs lag while switching tabs n is very annoying. N one more place whr the iphone really sucks is battery life. I rely dont know how gsmarena manages to show a decent score. But iphone normal version has the worst battery life. My brightness is always lowest setting. Only the plus models have decent battery life. I used to buy iphones only cuz of the nice build. Now luckily thr are many androids that match n even surpass it in build and feel. So i can finally break free from ios.

Tho they call it quad core its actually dual core as only two processors are available for benchmarks and other tasks, it's not the same big little architecture as it can show you all four cores or even 8 cores in benchmarks. Ever tried heavy operations like video uploading or editing on an iPhone. Try uploading a 10 min video on drive from an iPhone 7 and a Galaxy S6 edge which is from 2015 and you'll see the difference. Iphone turns hot like hell and almost start to sweat in uploading a 10 min video to drive. I'm sure an A10 chip can never be used to operate a phone with hardware equivalent to Galaxy S7/Note 7.
Apple is fast as it is optimised? Is it just optimised to open an app some 0.0005s faster compared to other phones?
consumersmartphone, 11 Mar 2017Qualcomm cant underestimate Mediatek from now, they are serious Competitor since 4-5 years and... moreUnless they improve their GPU first, though...
MTK devices are known to lag because of poor GPU performance.
xxt, 10 Mar 2017Exynos isn't exclusive and never was, the thing is that the other companies don't want to use it. Whatever the reason is, exynos is only used in samsung devices 99.99% of the times....
