Today we come with the latest information via Taiwanese publication Digitimes that the devices with Cortex-A72 based chipset likely to be announced in Q4, 2015, it means there is lots of expectation that we will see the arrival of devices at CES or MWC event of 2016.
We hope MediaTek MT679X chipset will pair the fast Cortex-A72 processor cores with A53 ones in a big.LITTLE setup for improved power efficiency in coming days.
The new chipset will leave the current 28nm process for a more efficient one. It is not clear whether the company will use 20nm or the latest 16nm FinFET.
At 16nm, the process of A72 core will be 3.5x faster than a 28nm A15 and also it will show 1.9x faster than a 20nm A57 at the same power consumption.
We are coming with lots of rumors that MediaTek has broken its partnership with ARM’s Mali and became new partner of AMD for new mobile graphics.
As we know AMD has already sold the phone or GPU game department to Qualcomm and it renamed it as Adreno.
