MediaTek to announce 4G, QHD capable, octa-core MT6595 CPU clocked at up to 2.5GHz
Reports from China relayed that MediaTek is about to announce a monster of an affordable processor tomorrow, July 15. Allegedly, it's the MT6595 - an octa-core 32-bit CPU with cutting-edge features such as 4G LTE network and QuadHD display support that's also able to hit speeds of up to 2.5GHz.

The SoC is built on four Cortex-A17 cores and four Cortex-A7 cores - a mid-range solution, according to their chip designers from ARM. But if MediaTek is able to bring the aforementioned features to affordable devices, along with 4K recording and playback, then more power to the company, we say.

The MT6595 is expected to ship in three varieties - the MT6595M running on 2GHz, the MT6595 with a slightly faster 2.1-2.2GHz clock, and the MT6595 Turbo, which is souped up to 2.4-2.5GHz. It is said that MediaTek won't be late to bring out its 64-bit line-up in the fourth quarter of 2014. The manufacturer is looking to ship 15 million LTE-compatible chips by the end of the year as Chinese telecoms are looking to promote their 4G networks by selling up to 160 million affordable LTE smartphones this year.

Hopefully MediaTek keeps the pedal down and keeps making better and better chips.

It's clear that Qualcomm needs serious competitive pressure otherwise they just stop working on new stuff so they maximize profits selling old designs, like they did with the 801.

Yes, but maybe Snapdragon bring good value to manufacturers with a complete package which is impotent. It seems that both up coming Tegra K1 and Exynos will be more powerful than Snapdragon 805 for example.

Wasn't MT6595 announced on Feb 11 (see official web-site)? And please correct the title.

Quality over quantity, seriously their most powerful SoC doesn't even feel like an S4 pro.

that was a nice comment but really stupid.. !!

you do realize that Snapdragon is doing the same right ?

look no further than snapdragon 615 and 810 .. by the time snapdragon 810 arrives , mediatek would be having 4 cortex A57 + 4 cortex A53 which is what snapdragon 810 has.. and in comparison to snapdragon 615 8 x cortex A53 they have Mediatek 6752 ..

their most powerful Soc doesn't feel like S4 pro because their most powerful chip competes with snapdragon 400 ... and it even beats the snapdragon 410
atleast make a fair comparison at the same price.. ..

Goodness, MediaTek are really after Qualcomm's market share, if this chip can outperform the Snapdragon 400 and 410 then MediaTek have a decent mid range SoC.

their old Mediatek 6592 Chip already beats the crap out of snapdragon 400 and snapdragon 410 easily

and i am not even talking about the Mediatek 6752 chip which is expected to sport Mali T760 4 core variant...

that is why they are king in low - mid range mobiles all they lack is being more open and development support..

once they have that snapdragon won't stand a chance,.at least in the mid end.. in high end this chip looks very promising , they are going similar to exynos path .. using COrtex A17 and i am sure in 6 months they will be pairing 4 Cortex A57 with 4 cortex A53

They haven't really used the A15, so I doubt they will use 4 A57s

read the article they are using Cortex A17 which performs same as Cortex A15 but consumes much less power that is why they are able to post scores of 44000 on antutu...

maybe you are right about not using Cortex A57 but by that time arm would come up with with successor of Arm A17 in 64 bit more like A55 or something .. remember mediatek is not competing at the high end .. these chips are for 300-400 $ devices

much better than snapdragon atleast

i don't know about 410 but 400 is pretty much based on A7. this new chip is based on A17 which i believe it is much closer A15 (or even matching) in terms of performance. so for sure it will beat snapdragon 400 performance.

Never buying mediatek again, my memo pad hd7 is still on Jellybean, and the performance is mediocre.

That's mediatek for you. xD
Can't expect much from those chips... yet.

I hope there is a Qualcomm or Mediatek of batteries.

i think samsung deliberately tries to keep performance on par with snapdragon..

look how close the benchmarks are

they can make better chip than snapdragon but if they do they will face huge demand which they won't be able to fulfil plus they can't use exynos in usa due to no lte so in order to not upset us customers they try to be same or little bit behind than snapdragon
