Roadmap confirms true octa-core chip coming from MediaTek
As we told you earlier, the MT6592 scored close to 30,000 on the AnTuTu benchmark test, and while that is a pretty good score, it is not as high as the tally produced by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800. On the other hand, you can be pretty sure that the MediaTek chip will offer the better value. And instead of the big.LITTLE technology employed by the Samsung Exynos octa-core chips in which only four cores work at any one time, all eight cores will work together at the same time on the MT6592.
Other reports in the region show that MediaTek has 100 job openings it is looking to fill. Based on the positions being advertised, it looks like MediaTek plans on concentrating in chips for 4G LTE technology along with the development of GPU chips and products for Android. Looks like we might start seeing a lot more MediaTek silicon in smartphones in the near future.
