MT6795 is now Helio X10
Starting last week, following a strong showing at the Mobile World Congress, MediaTek has a new brand name for its premium phone SoCs that is easier to remember than MT, followed by four digits.
Both rely on MediaTek 6795 SoC
HTC will be launching two cool phones to follow up the HTC One M9 release. The flagship phone looks good and performs quite well, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810. We could not get to overheat it doing our time with the device.
San Diego born and raised
Samsung's Exynos 7240 is a little miracle, and being the first mobile 14nm SoC in the market has its own benefits.
No one expected such good yields
We found out one rather interesting story at the Mobile World Congress and it sheds more light on Samsung's decision to use Exynos SoCs for most markets instead of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810.
For high-end SoCs
One of the hottest things we learned at the Mobile World Congress is that MediaTek is working with AMD on mobile SoC graphics.
28nm MT8173 is a big.LITTLE quad
MediaTek is definitely Qualcomm's number one competitor in the smartphone space, and the company has just announced rather interesting product for tablets as well.
Qualcomm in trouble
Recently Samsung announced that serial production of its new 14nm SoC has already commenced. The new part is going to end up in Samsung Galaxy S6 and a few other devices.
4K times 2K resolution too
Braswell 14nm Atom is coming to notebooks / netbooks in Q3 2015, with a new iGPU in tow.
But that’s good news -- really.
Nvidia had a record Q4 and record financial year but tanking Tegra did not really help.
