Posted by Charbax – July 27, 2013

MediaTek MT6592 is announced, as far as I understand it's 8-cores of ARM Cortex-A7 with ARM Mali graphics?

So this MediaTek MT6592 does not use big.LITTLE combining ARM Cortex-A15 and A7 but only uses 8 ARM Cortex-A7 cores?

Basically, the MT6592 and the MT6588 will be the new high-end offers, the MT6589 becomes the new mid-end and the MT6582 and MT6572 will be the company's low-end chips.
Just as its predecessors The MediaTek MTK MT6592  is built on ARM A7 architecture and can be clocked from 1.7 to 2.0 GHz. This  pure 8 core processor chipset supports full HD recording and playback.
According to some leaked benchmarks this MT6592 SoC supposedly performs quite fast?

This may be MediaTek's processor for Android 5.0 to be released.
