MediaTek will continue to develop the Helio X series chips

In the chip manufacturing industry, Qualcomm is clearly ahead of the likes of Samsung and MediaTek. However, the Helio chips give manufacturers, especially the smaller ones a cheaper alternative.  Two years ago, MediaTek introduced the high-end chip series – Helio X series. However, since the launch of the maiden Helio X30, the company is yet to release its predecessor.

Gizchina News of the week

Now, recent reports show that MediaTek is not abandoning the Helio X series. The company said that though it has given more attention to the Helio P series, the stalled flagship processor, Helio X series is not a history. According to the company, the Helio X series will still be developed depending on the needs of the market.

Unfortunately, MediaTek did not disclose details of the next generation Helio X series chips. In 2017, MediaTek launched the Helio X30 chip, which was first used by the Meizu PRO 7 series. It is based on a 10nm process and uses a three-cluster ten-core architecture, including two Cortex A73s, four Cortex A53s and four Cortex A35s. Actually, this chip is rarely used by manufacturers. In addition to Meizu PRO 7, the Meizu PRO 7 Plus, and Mito V6 and the other flagship phones to use this chip

The latest chip from MediaTek is the Helio P90, which is positioned as a mid-range chipset. It is based on a 12nm process and combines two powerful Cortex A75 processors with six Cortex A55 processors in an eight-core cluster system.

      Mediatek are way behind. Their processor don’t match up. Unless recently there’s no single chip from the company that can run fortnite. And yet you know they exist as major dealers because the give you quantity over quality. Really bunch of garbage are their lot.

      I surely did read you asked where the mediatek phones were and I told you, I won’t argue with a subjective view of them not being “good” didnt make sense I even went there especially seeing how vague that point was

    Mediatek new P series chipsets are good from P22 up to P90. Q.C will always be ahead because of their monopolistic policies towards manufacturers of fones with patent troll. They don’t invent nothing. They take ideas from the manufactures and others and just put it into production and call it their invention. Broadcomm, Huawei, Mediatek and Samsung don’t with patent troll where Q.C makes most of its money. Mediatek needs to use more A55 and A75 in octocore or hexacore configuration with quad graphics and go 12/10nm with all its processors
