Mediatek has gone stark raving mad. Soon, you will not need a high-end smartphone to get the best performance possible. Chip maker, Mediatek, have announced a newocta-core chip at a fraction of the cost. Besides good performance on your mid-range smartphone, you also get improved battery usage. An excerpt from a news report:
The real beauty, says Mediatek, is the MT65695’s ability to fire up each of its cores one by one to weigh in on any given task. So if you command your phone to play a music track while it’s sitting in your pocket (with the screen off) then just one core jumps into action. More intensive activities such as HD video or gaming require the extra might of two, three, or even all four cores. The upside is you get all the power you need but only when you need it. As a result the battery should take less of a hit, and less often.
Sounds impressive? Yes; Mediatek has gone stark raving mad. Long live Mediatek.
