MTK releases the MT6795, an octa-core 64-bit LTE chip
The MT6795 is at the top of the product line of MTK’s cell phone processors and has been predicted to have more powerful specs than the MT6595 and MT6752. It looks like this is true. The MT6795 can be considered a combination of both octa-core processors, integrating the 6752’s 64-bit octa-core design with the powerful multimedia specs of the 6595.
As previously stated, the MT6795 follows a 64-bit octa-core design. It has CPU main frequency that goes up to 2.2GHz. It will probably use the ARM Cortex-A53 like the MT6752, but the upgrades in main frequency should make it more powerful than the 6752. It also uses LTE Modem, supporting LTE Cat 4 (50Mbps upstream/150Mbps downstream), TD-LTE, FDD-LTE, HSPA + 42M/11M (WCDMA), TD-SCDMA, and GSM.
The MT6795 perfectly inherits the MT6595’s excellent multimedia functions. It supports display screens with 2K resolution, 20mp Ultra HD cameras, and video codecs like the H.265 4K*2K. It still has the IMG PowerVR G6 GPU.
Mass production of the MT6795 should start before the Chinese New Year at the latest.
2. Snapdragon 820 Spotted On GeekBench
The device running this chip had 3GB RAM on board, but with such low clock speeds, the results are less than impressive. In the single core test, this Snapdragon 820 version scored 714 and in the multi-score test around 1942, which is way below other flagship chips like Samsung’s Exynos 7420.
But given the fact that Qualcomm is reportedly using custom Kryo cores instead of stock ones from ARM along with the much better 14nm manufacturing process, the final version of Snapdragon 820 should definitely be impressive.
Also, we have already seen the Buy Motorola Moto 360 Smartwatch from Flipkart.com”>Qualcomm Snapdragon 620 chipset in another leak which showed that it will boast of superior performance than most other rival chipsets. So, the much higher-end Snapdragon 820 chipset should definitely be more powerful than 620.
Anyways, we are sure that we will see more information about Snapdragon 820 in the coming days, so stay tuned.
