MediaTek Helio X20 – The Power of the Deca-Core In The Next ZOPO
Shenzhen, China – October 12th – It has been said before that ZOPO's next flagship smartphone will be powered by the brand new deca-core Helio X20 SoC from MediaTek (that's 10 processors!) that is to be launched in December 2015. It has been said, and that is true. So having said that, let us take a look at what exactly makes the Helio X20 so special and why it will foster the begining of a new grand leap for the smartphone industry.
From the makers itself, here is what MediaTek has to say about their new shiny crown jewel:
"...the world's first mobile processor with Tri-Cluster™ CPU architecture and ten processing cores. Delivering extreme computing performance with unmatched power efficiency, the new Helio X20 processor is set to revolutionize the smartphone industry and address the growing global demand for flagship mobile devices.
Helio X20 provides three processor clusters, each designed to more efficiently handle different types of workloads. Much like adding gears to vehicles, dividing the cores into three clusters provides a more efficient allocation of tasks for optimum performance and extended battery life.
It can delegate simple tasks to one cluster of cores, while directing more-complex (and more-power-hungry) tasks to the other clusters. If the smartphone is doing only simple tasks - such as sending text messages or running the calculator - on one cluster, the other clusters can power down, and therefore drive smoother performance and extended battery life.
In other words, besides being extremely powerful and setting up new performance benchmarks, the Helio X20 is a masterful energy and task manager that promises to make the devices in which it will be employed to run smoother than any others before, while saving more battery life.
ZOPO pays very careful attention to the demands and comments of the community and its fans. One of the most common and widespread opinions about the most important elements that constitute a good smartphone, concerns performance and battery life. The Helio X20 taps into these issues in its most fundamental core design ideas.
On a more technical and detailed side of things, here are the specifications of the Helio X20:
