Mediatek planning an octa-core chip for this year
Mediatek has been aggressively renewing its chip portfolio and after its first quad-core chip, the MT6589, the company quickly followed up with more variety adding products like the more powerful MT6589T.
Now, the leaked Mediatek roadmap below unveils the MT6592, the first octa-core chip by Mediatek. Just as its predecessors, the MT6592 will be based on Cortex A7 and run at speeds of up to 2GHz.
It is not the only new chip in the roadmap, though. The company plans on refreshing its quad-core products and even affordable new dual-core chips are coming soon. Take a look at it all, the hardware that will power the new affordable smartphones, right below.

Rogue GPU? It's too great to be true if that is the flagship GPU, not cheap (or so-called energy efficient) GPU

I think you're right. GPUs of Imagination always occupy for a very large die size with 3-4 cores, so due to production cost factor it would be one core only.

If this Chipset will use PowerVR Rogue Series It will be totally good but we still dont know if it is Power Efficient And I think it is only 1 core coz if they will use 2 or more it will be in mid to high range phones.

I have two phones with mediatek CPUs (MT6575 & MT6577T). Mediatek CPUs suck because the GPS can't get fix position, even after waiting for hours. Everything else is fine. Please mediatek, fix your GPS problem and add compass too. I rely on GPS so much.

I just hope MediaTek help Samsung to get all eight cores working on their exynos 5, and they become buddies. Dreaming of a "True Octa Core smartphone, with powerful chips.
