Lately, rumors have proliferated on the new processor MediaTek Helio X30, so much that we already know all about its technical characteristics despite the chipmaker has never confirmed the existence of the SoC in recent months. The announcement, however, came: with an event held in China for the local press, MediaTek has launched the new Helio X30 reciting its specifications and it merges with a new Helio P25, but for which we still know little.
As expected, MediaTek Helio X30 is a deca-core built with 10 nm production process developed by TSMC. Is the successor dell’Helio X20, against which owns two core ARM Cortex-A73 (A72 and no more) with 2.8GHz frequency, along with four other core 2.2GHz Cortex-A53 and four Cortex-A35 2GHz. According to allegations made by the company, the new processor should provide more power savings of 53% and a 43% improvement in performance compared to Helio X20.
LPDDR4 also would support memory up to 8GB and up to 28 MP dual ISP. Turning to graphics, MediaTek Helio X30 uses a quad-core GPU PowerVR 7XT, offering performance 2.4 times higher than those of the Mali-T880 integrated in Helio X20 with an energy saving of 58%. At the same time, MediaTek has also launched a new Helio P25 P20 successor dell’Helio presented earlier this year. We have a lot of technical information about this chip, if not that will be realized with production process to 16nm TSMC and will have a higher frequency of the model that preceded it.
MediaTek Helio X30 will go into mass production in the first half of 2017, and the first devices to be fitted will be launched in the second half of next year.
