As the CPU power has came as an inevitable part of Smartphone industry, Chipset companies also entered into a greater competition, apart from the smartphone manufacturers. Among the companies including Qualcomm, Mediatek and Intel, the Taiwanese chipset manufacturer MediaTek, who begun by making semi conductors, has gone a step ahead by making the world’s first tri-cluster Deca-Core (10 Core) SoC, the Helio X20. It is made up of 2x Cortex-A72 clocked at 2.5GHz, 4x Cortex-A53 at 2.0GHz and 4x Cortex-A53 at 1.4GHz chips included.
MediaTek Helio X20 is currently in an uncertainty state, and Meizu MX6 could be the first smartphone to make use of it. Its latter, the Helio X25 is also on its way and to be utilized with LeTV Le2 (aka LeEco Le2).
Some leaked reports from China suggest that MediaTek is currently working on the next-gen Deca Core SoC, which will use TSMC 10nm FinFET manufacturing process, which has already reported to be used in Apple A10X CPUs, for mass production at a while, with low power consumption and powerful usage. Not only in the clockspeed and Cores, in networking also the Helio X30 will be improved than Helio X20/X25. It is to be produced by moulding up of A53 and A57 cores with 2 x 2.8Ghz A53 cores.
Helio X30 could reduce the rate of battery discharging by 50% than Helio X25. It is reportedly says that MediaTek is also planning to take all Mobile Gamers into it by using Quad-Core PowerVR 7XT GPU, which will support multi tasking even in games, dual camera setup, VR as well as the fastest LTE Connections.
The Deca-Core, tri-cluster Chipset from the MediaTek will be moulded up with some powerful device earlier in 2017. Smartphone industry not only a competition among smartphone makers, it is mainly a game with CPU.
