The MediaTek company already has a SoC with 8 cores, MediaTek MT6592, CPU and this doubled in number to the nuclei of the previous generation of chips from the company and even to stop the competition range.
However, and without wanting to downplay the progress of the company with this chip, the video makes clear graphic differences, that no pure computing power or the number of nuclei that have the flag. I.e., all these effects that show us are managed internally in the GPU, in other words, thanks to the Mali GPU-450 MP4.
It must be taken with great care this kind of information as that available from 8 CPUs Cortex A7 does not have why be better than 4 cores of family Cortex A15 / Krait (Qualcomm), and what is worse, in real life will be really difficult to take advantage of this latent power multicore due to lack of optimization multithreading applications.
To make matters worse, the comparison made, apart from being merely a comparison of GPU effects, mentioned a quad – core, but not discussed what chip, if it is MediaTek or competition.
On this occasion, we think that this video is not to create hype about the new chip, which would love to be able to prove and will be then, and only then when compare you to you, and by the same standard, with other alternative top of the market. We look forward to the arrival of the terminal Zopo ZP998.
