MediaTek officially launches MT6592 true octa-core chip
MediaTek president Hsieh Ching-chiang says that the MT6592 meets his customers' desires for a powerful processor that consumes very little power. The chip will also allow the average selling price of a smartphone in China to decline this year to CNY1500 ($246 USD) from CNY2000 ($328 USD).
MediaTek is working with TSMC to produce the chip, using the 28nm HMP process. The pair is working on using a 20nm process and by 2015, both will use a 15nm FinFET process to manufacture the chip.
