The company MediaTek said that fought its main competitor in the mobile Qualcomm processors. Their new MT6797 «did» top-end crafts Qualcomm Snapdragon 810.
But other characteristics of the product differ from Qualcomm is not in favor of the latter. The company MediaTek has led a comparative table with the top processor in the mobile market – Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 – to show the advantages of their new system.
AT MediaTek MT6797 used 10 cores, divided into three clusters. This bundle consists of 4 cores Cortex-A53 (2,0 GHz), 4 cores Cortex-A53 (1,4 GHz) and 2 high-frequency core Cortex-A72 (2,3-2,5 GHz). For comparison, Snapdragon 810 using 8 cores, clock speed which is capped at 2 GHz.
Moreover, in Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 use 4 cores Cortex-A57, which are considered the most powerful, but have problems with increased heat. This problem has led some top producers refuse to use Snapdragon 810 in its flagship. For example, LG G4 decided to build more Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 to do a smartphone from the stove.
Great opportunities offered MediaTek Helio 20 to work with the camera. The chipset supports a matrix of 25 megapixels, allows you to shoot 3D video and slow motion. For comparison, Snapdragon 810, the first figure is limited to 21 megapixel sensor, and the last two features are not supported.
But while there are questions to the nuclei, which are involved in MediaTek MT6797. Cortex-A72 have advantages in computing abilities, but have problems with memory bandwidth. In addition, the graphics engine 20 Helio able to work with a screen resolution of no more 2560 by 1600 pixels (at Snapdragon 810, this figure reaches 3840 × 2160). Not so good in the chipset MediaTek implemented LTE support: Modem Category 6 Helio 20 against Category 9 Snapdragon 810.
However, this is just numbers, and to compare the actual performance of the iron we can only in the late autumn and early winter, when the market will be released the first devices based on the MediaTek MT6797 Helio 20.
