MediaTek Helio X20

MediaTek, one of the leading chip manufacturing company today announced a new chipset for mobile phones, the Helio X20, claimed as the world’s first mobile chipset to have 10-core (deca) tri-cluster architecture.

The MediaTek Helio X20 is more powerful and highly sufficient than 7-core (octa) chipsets that have been in existence for a while. According to the firm, the processor can easily handle high-graphics games and heavy load tasks seamlessly. Despite its high workload, the Helio X20 can manage power and thermal effect and save up to 30% of power consumption, thanks to the new CorePilot 3.0 computing scheduling system.

Jeffrey Ju, Senior Vice President of MediaTek said:

We are excited to see device manufacturers raise the bar – in camera, display, audio and other consumer features. MediaTek has been adding innovative multimedia features to our platforms since the very beginning, enhancing the overall computing and multimedia experience as part of our strategy to put leading technology into the hands of everyone.

The Tri-Cluster CPU consist of 2-core ARM Cortex A72 clocked at 2.5GHz, 4-core ARM Cortex A53 clocked at 2.0GHz, and 4-core ARM Cortex A53 clocked at 1.4GHz.

Features of MediaTek Helio X20

  • Dual main cameras with a built-in 3D depth engine that allows for a faster shot-to-shot experience in creating complex depth-of-field images.
  • Multi-scale de-noise engines to deliver high quality images with unprecedented detail, color accuracy, and sharpness even under extreme conditions.
  • A 120Hz mobile display that breaks the barriers of the current 60Hz refresh rate to provide crisp and responsive browsing and uncompromised motion viewing.
  • An integrated, low power sensor processor – ARM Cortex-M4-to support diverse always-on applications such as MP3 playback and voice activation. The sensor hub operates on an isolated, low power domain to assist with tasks for better battery efficiency.

The Helio X20 will be available for consumers before Q1 2016.
