There has been a lot of talk about Mediatek’s 8-core MT6592, with many claiming it is just not needed on a mobile device, however this may not be true as game developers Gameloft are already announcing new games will be optimised for the powerful new SoC.
While it is true that many of the apps we use on a day to day basis don’t really require an 8-core processor, there will be instances the extra processing grunt will come in to play. One of those times will be when playing Gameloft’s latest instalment of their Modern Combat franchise, Modern Combat 5.
In a press release on Mediatek’s website it has been revealed that Mediatek and Gameloft have worked together to optimise the new game for use on the chip makers octa-core processors.
Just how good is Modern Combat 5 on the MT6592 processor? Well below is a demo video, but we won’t know first hand until the game is available for download next year.[ Mediatek ]
