MediaTek plans to release 10-core processors next quarter

MediaTek has been playing with multicore processors for smartphones for quite some time lately, promising to release 10-core chips. Now if you think that is a joke, think again – the Taiwanese company is ready to launch 10-core smartphone processors next quarter.

The new chips will be produced by TSMC on 20 nm process technology and will belong to the new Helios X20 chip family. The new processors will serve smartphones made by Chinese manufacturers that want to upgrade their flagship solutions to 10-core processors. The first marketing efforts dedicated to Helios X20 will start in the middle of Q2 2015. The new chip will be the world’s first 10-core processor and will feature an interesting 2+4+4 design that will deliver 40 per cent more performance compared to 8-core solutions.

By offering a 10-core chip MediaTek will follow NVIDIA in offering chips with a strange number of cores. NVIDIA launched Tegra processors with five cores a while ago.
