MediaTek MT6795 chipset released: “first”, “eight-core”, “64-bit”

Recently, the Taiwanese manufacturer of hearts for budget smartphones and tablets officially announced the release of MediaTek MT6795 - its first 64-bit 8-core chipset. One of the main features of the model is the support for displays with a resolution of 2K (2560 x 1600 pixels). That is, the chip maker again puts a “pig” to the first-tier brands: it will not be necessary to spend money on the flagship just because of the ultra-high resolution screen.

A little history: Mediatek MT6577 was released at the end of June 2012, and the first HD-smartphone under the Russian brand with it appeared on board in August-September of the same year. The release of the Mediatek MT6589 took place around November of the year before last, the first Russian Full HD smartphone had to wait until August 2013. It should be assumed that according to optimistic forecasts, just in time for the New Year's shopping season, we will get the opportunity to get a 2k smartphone for relatively modest money.

Perhaps I’ll immediately give you the key characteristics of the chipset:

  • 64-bit processor, 8 computing cores with a clock frequency of 2.2 GHz (are we waiting for a version of Turbo with a frequency of 2.5 GHz?);
  • dual channel LPDDR3 memory controller with a frequency of 933 MHz;
  • Support for CorePilot technology (maximum performance with minimum power consumption);
  • displays with a resolution of 2k (2560 x 1600 pixels);
  • screens with a frequency of 120 Hz, along with ClearMotion technologies (converting video from 24-30 FPS to 120 FPS) and Response Time Enhancement;
  • Super-Slow Motion - shooting video with a frequency of 480 FPS and subsequent playback up to 1/16 of the rated speed;
  • hardware support for recording and playback of H.265 Ultra HD video (4K2K), as well as H.264 and VP9 video playback;
  • Support for 3GPP Rel.9 (LTE-Advanced) specification, Category 4 FDD and TDD LTE (up to 150 Mbps), as well as 2G / 3G networks;
  • Wireless - Wi-Fi 802.11ac, GLONASS, Beidou and ANT +;
  • Wireless multi-mode charging based on MediaTek’s universal IC charger.

Now a little more about some points. Technology Response Time Enhancement, according to MediaTek, "reduces the response time of the display and 50% reduces the motion blur of a moving object, typical of 60 Hz displays, literally" animating "everything that happens on the screen." Based on this development, a Taiwanese company, together with Japan Display, implemented support for 120 Hz displays.

Super-Slow Motion technology was announced just the other day with the following explanation: “This technology controls several interacting subsystems, starting, in particular, with Sony IMX220 - a sensor with a resolution of 20.7 megapixels, designed for video recording. Subsequently, the received high-FPS video files undergo a specially developed process of advanced processing by MediaTek. ”

As for CorePilot - if I understood correctly, the essence of the technology lies in a heterogeneous model of the processor. In this regard, MediaTek general manager for international sales and marketing said in an interview on “Of the three big.LITTLE architecture options that can be used, MediaTek preferred the heterogeneous processor algorithm, which turned out to be the most effective for the most optimized operation. Because it is he who makes possible the work of cores in any configurations - for example, 2 cores from one cluster and one from another can work simultaneously. Or all 4 at the same time. Or only 1 ”- then it was about MediaTek MT8135 and a bunch of ARM Cortex-A15 / A7. In MediaTek MT6795 - two "quad", ARM Cortex-A53 and Cortex-A57.

While I do not see official information about which version of the system “on board” the MediaTek MT6795 will be delivered with, we will hope that we will talk about Android 4.4. In this regard, MediaTek MT6592, which initially offers far from the most current Android 4.2, somewhat disappointed. Although there is good news, the other day, the first at least in Russia smartphone with MediaTek MT6592 upgraded to Android 4.4 KitKat became (OMG) "highscreen Thor" jigurdafon. The trend is looming quite well - this year is the second time that B-brands have released updates to Android 4.4. Earlier in March, teXet TM-9767 and TM-9757 received an update.
