MediaTek, the gargantuan Taiwanese chip manufacturer has unveiled its three newest chips, the Helio P20, the Helio P25, and the Helio X30 at an event just yesterday. Let’s have a look at what’s new! (MTK officially announce the info of X30, P25 chipset features in Vernee 2016 new products conference – Vernee product roadmap)The Flagship MediaTek Helio X30Those interested in the best that MediaTek has to offer will be interested in the company’s new offering in the Helio X30. Built on TSMC’s new 10nm process, the Helio X30 will keep the same tri-cluster setup as the previous Helio X20. Every cluster is clocked above 2.0GHz, from the four Cortex-A35 cores (2GHz), the four A53 cores (2.3GHz) and the two new A73 cores (2.8GHz).
The X30 will support up to 8GB of LPDDR4 RAM, 4K video playback and 4K recording at 30fps.
The Helio P20 & the Helio P25 Mediatek’s Helio P10 chip has enjoyed heavy use amongst many chinese OEMs lately, equipping many popular smartphones such as the UMi Super and the Alcatel Flash Plus 2.
The Helio P20 and Helio P25 are both updates to the P10, enjoying a slightly higher CPU and GPU clock speed. Built on a 16nm process from TMSC, the P20 and P25 will both support LPDDR4x RAM, which will provide a much zippier app to app experience. The Helio P25 will also support dual cameras with optical zoom, where dual camera setups have been tried in phones like the Huawei P9 and the iPhone 7. It will be interesting to see these new chipsets in new devices, and hopefully we will be able to see more of these chipsets in the market soon.
