After architecture of 32-bit quad-core Cortex-A17 and Cortex-A7 four cores, the Taiwanese Gaint MediaTek is moving ahead with octo-core MT6795, a 64-bit architecture. MediaTek also announced three more chipsets on 64-bit architecture: MT6732, MT6752 and MT6795.
The chipmaker issued a press release three new chipsets whose common point is to rely on a 64-bit architecture. Their name: MT6732, MT6752 and MT6795. The first two components respectively for the entry and midrange. The first is a quad-core Cortex-A53 1.5GHz, while the second is an octo-core Cortex-A53 always clocked at 1.7 GHz. The graphics is supported by GPU Mali-T760 ARM (not the PowerVR Series 6 of MT6595). All these three chipsets are designed for all types of smartphones.
The third chipset, as its name suggests, is a high end chipset (the “9” is a good indication). It will take on the following: MT6592 and MT6595. Unlike the MT6595, which includes a pair of quad-core running on a big. LITTLE architecture, the MT6795 integrates 8 cores Cortex-A53 operating simultaneously. Their rate will rise to 2.2 GHz as the standard version of the MT6595, with whom he also shares the GPU, namely the PowerVR Series 6 of Imagination Technologies. So that can provide very good performance.
The performance of the MT6795 will be similar to the octo-core. The chipset will therefore support qHD screens with refresh rate to 120 Hz, decoding and encoding video in Ultra HD and slow-motion at 480 frames per second in full HD mode. No difference so, for now, with the 32-bit chipset. But compared to the MT6592, the power gain should be considerable.
The question is what will be the performance of this new component on AnTuTu after a comparison between 32-bit and 64-bit Cortex-A7 and between Cortex-A17 and Cortex-53.
