Represented MediaTek Helio X30, the first 10-core 10-nanometer system-on-chip for smartphones
At the MWC 2017, the company MediaTek has introduced its new flagship single-chip system — Helio X30. This is the first decategory SoC produced at 10-nanometer process technology.
In comparison with the Helio X20 the manufacturer promises increased by 35% improved performance and 50% energy efficiency. Thus, the processor contains three new items in the cluster. The core consists of two cores Cortex-A73 frequency up to 2.5 GHz, the second received four cores Cortex-A53 with a frequency up to 2.2 GHz, and the youngest has four Cortex-A35 with frequency up to 1.9 GHz. As GPU PowerVR acts 7XTP-MP4 with frequency of 800 MHz. The solution is able to decode 10-bit video format of 4K2K supported HDR10.
Helio X30 contains two 14-bit image processor that allows it to work with dual cameras at resolutions up to 16 megapixels each. System-on-chip supports up to 8 GB of RAM LPDDR4x with frequency up to 1866 MHz and flash memory UFS 2.1. Also, the configuration includes LTE WorldMode modem Cat.10.
Another distinguishing feature is the support of management technology cores CorePilot 4.0. MediaTek claims that this technology can save 25% more energy than the technology of the previous generation. CorePilot 4.0 uses an intelligent system is task scheduling, which, along with the UX monitoring system and Monitoring system power management System Power Allocator (SPA), leads the work of the SoC in the most energy efficient modes.
Smartphones based on Helio X30, will appear on the market in the second quarter.
