Mediatek Smartphone SoC Roadmap Until 2015

February 28th, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

Mediatek already has over a dozen of dual, quad and octa processors for smartphone and tablets based on ARM Cortex A7, A9 and A15 cores, and they’ve already announced a 64-Bit ARM SoC (MT6732) as well as MT6595 with four Cortex A17 cores. A leaked product roadmap show the timeline for Mediatek smartphone SoCs, as well as showing some new application processors such as MT6591 Hexa-core SoC, MT6571 dual core Cortex A7 and MT6752 octa core Cortex A53 with LTE.

So let’s recapitulate the new and upcoming SoCs from Mediatek:

  • MT6572/M – Dual core Cortex A7 @ 1.3 GHz / 1.0 GHz with qHD/HVGA screen support. Available since Q3 2013, and found in phones such as Cubot GT72.
  • MT6582/M – Quad core Cortex A7 @ 1.3 GHz with HA720/qHD screen support. Available since Q4 2013, found in phones such as W450.
  • MT6588 – Quad core Cortex A7 @ 1.7 GHz supporting FHD screens. Available since Q1 2014, only found is a handful of phones.
  • MT6591 – Hexa core Cortex A7? @ 1.5 GHz supporting FHD screens. Available in Q1 2014. Unannounced, and I could not find phones yet.
  • MT6592/M – Octa core Cortex A7 @ 1.7-2.0GHz/1.4GHz supporting FHD screens. Available since Q1 2014. and found in phones such as HTM H100.
  • MT6571 – Dual core Cortex A7 @ 1.3 GHz with support for qHD screens, and TD/EDGE. Available in Q2 2014.
  • MT6595 – Octa core big.LITTLE processor with 4x Cortex A17 @ 2.2-2.5 GHz and 4x Cortex A7,  WQXGA (2560 x 1600) screens, and LTE. Available in Q3 2014.
  • MT6732 – Quad core ARM Cortex A53 @ 1.5 GHz with 720p screen support and LTE. Available in Q3 2014.
  • MT6752 – Octa core ARM Cortex A53 @ 1.7 GHz, supporting 1080p displays and LTE. Available in Q4 2014, Q1 2015

I can’t really understand Mediatek’s naming convention, and why they need so many different SoCs, but apparently it’s working for them.

    I do wonder if their A53 based SOCs will be able to use the universal ARM kernel, that would be a really big step forward indeed as it would mean we wouldn’t need the kernel sources for all these Chinese phones.

    Do they have devboards?

    They do of course but good luck getting one unless you’ve got a company and the cash to buy it.
