Slowly but surely , progress in the competition MediaTek chip mobile processors increasingly received positive response from the vendor of smartphones and tablets . MediaTek success with the solutions it offers, of course, will make the chipset market leader , Qualcomm , worried .
Last year , when presenting MediaTek MT6577 dual-core processor for affordable devices , Qualcomm reacted by issuing a Snapdragon MSM8225 chip that seems to answer the challenges of MediaTek .
Interestingly , both the competition now seems to be happening again . MediaTek currently has a quad - core chip MT6589 and MT6589T . With the new chip , MediaTek not only pose a threat in the segment of entry-level and middle course , but also ready to become a player in the segment above .
Then what about Qualcomm ?
As reported in GizChina site recently , called Qualcomm is preparing known as the MSM8228 chip . Processor chip is already in the testing phase was expected to be present to compete with quad - core processor made by MediaTek .
In detail Qualcomm MSM8228 comes with features :
- 1.4GHz quad -core , the Cortex A7
- 28nm manufacturing process
- Adreno 305 GPU 450MHz
- Support for 1080p display and 13 MP camera
- It's embedded 4G LTE modem and dual SIM
SupportIn addition to bringing key features as written above , also called the MSM8228 chip will offer better power management , with a rate of 30 % better efficiency when compared to other processors based on the Cortex A7 .
Shown in the figure below, the MSM8228 chip got a score of over 18,000 looking on AnTuTu Benchmark .
Unfortunately, at this time it is unknown when the device with the MSM8228 chip would be circulated out. For that we wait
