MediaTek Adds to Deca-core Lineup

Mediatek announced two new ten core application processors, the Helio X23 and Helio X27. There is a boost in general performance of around 20% with operation of the Arm Cortex-A72 cores at 2.6GHz and 875MHz for the Mali GPU. The cores are 2x Arm Cortex-A72 + 4x Arm Cortex-A53 + 4x Arm Cortex-A53. A particular feature is support for dual camera operation.

The newly introduced chipsets also include MiraVision EnergySmart Screen power-saving technology. It effectively modifies the smart display parameters based on the on-screen content and ambient lighting for up to a 25% reduction in display power consumption. The chips support displays up to 2560 x 1440 and can encode and decode UltraHD video.

MediaTek said the chips would be available ‘soon’.
