MediaTek has finally introduced the MT6592 chipset, which is being called as the world's first true octa-core mobile processor. The company is now planning to make this brand new chipset available in the devices which have been running on the most popular Android Jelly Bean mobile Operating System by the end of current running year i.e. 2013.
However, the Android KitKat powered smartphones featuring the new MT6592 chipset is very much likely to be launched in early months of 2014. It is going to be real fun to watch how these new chipsets perform in the smartphones running the most advanced version of Android OS.
MediaTek claimed that the MT6592 mobile processor is basically an advanced heterogeneous computing SOC, and it also includes scalable multi-core processing exclusively developed for advanced multi-tasking purpose. It is developed on the 28nm HPM (high-performance process), and it carries eight CPU cores. Each of the cores is fully capable of clock speeds up to 2GHz. MediaTek added that this processor can easily run both advanced demanding tasks and low-power consuming equally well. Just the full capabilities of all eight-cores need to be attached in any combination whatsoever.
