Just recently, MediaTek has unveiled its latest MT6592 mobile platform, which is dubbed as the world’s first true octa-core platform. The MediaTek MT6592 SOC combines an advanced eight-core application processor with industry-leading multimedia capabilities and mobile connectivity for a perfect balance of performance and power consumption.

Building on the advanced 28nm HPM high-performance process, the MT6592 has eight CPU cores, each capable of clock speeds up to 2GHz. This chipset runs both low-power and demanding tasks equally effectively by harnessing the full capabilities of all eight cores in any combination. An advanced MediaTek scheduling algorithm also monitors temperature and power consumption to ensure optimum performance at all times.

The MT6592 features a world-class multimedia subsystem with a quad-core graphics engine, an advanced video playback system supporting Ultra HD playback and support for new video codecs such as H.265 and VP9, a 16-megapixel camera, and a Full HD display. The SOC also features the ClearMotion technology for automatic frame-rate conversion of standard 24/30fps video to high-quality 60fps video for significantly smoother playback.

Enhancing mobile performance further, the MT6592 incorporates the MediaTek advanced multi-mode cellular modem and full connectivity capability for dual-band 801.11n Wi-Fi, Miracast screen-sharing as well as Bluetooth, GPS, and an FM tuner.

With its heightened computational capabilities, this chipset delivers premium gaming performance, enhanced multi-tasking, and a better web browsing experience for smartphones and tablets. MT6592-enabled mobile devices are expected to arrive in early 2014.
