MediaTek has unveiled its new P15 chipset Helio, a Helio P10 update.
The SoC Helio P15 offers an octa-core CPU with eight Cortex-A53 cores with clock speeds up to 2.2 GHz, while the GPU is the dual-core Mali-T860 MP2 with a speed of 800MHz.
For comparison, the original P10 chip has the same processor eight Cortex-A53 core but with less than 2.0 GHz clock, and the same GPU clocked at 700MHz.
The chip also supports LPDDR3-933MHz RAM and LTE Cat.6 with dual carrier aggregation.
MediaTek Helio P15 is manufactured by using the process from TSMC 28nm, the same used for the P10 chip.
The manufacturer promises a performance increase of 10% over the previous model P15 Helio Helio P10, as well as improved energy efficiency.
When will we see on the market the first devices powered by the new chip Helio P15 do not know, but they should be inexpensive devices.Today :
