MediaTek comes with ARM Cortex-A50 SOCs

MediaTek has taken licenses to the Cortex-A50 core technology from ARM. Although there is still nothing concrete has been announced, it seems that the manufacturer intends to build based on the Cortex A50. Soc a MediaTek has also licensed the Mali GPU.

According MediaTek there is both a license taken on the Cortex-A50 technology as the Mali-GPU designs. This gives the chip maker’s ability to design based on energy-efficient Cortex A53 and the more high-end Cortex A57. SOCs

Although no specific products are announced, it seems that MediaTek intends to use a big.little-setting up, based on the interruption economical, slower cores combined with faster variants. In this case it would thus be due to a combination of the Cortex A53 and A57 Cortex. MediaTek has with all the MT8135 a soc which is based on big.little. Here are two Cortex-A15 cores combined with two Cortex-A7 cores.

ARM announced the Cortex-A50 design last year. Most notable is the new ARMv8 instruction that can also handle with 64bit. The chip designer promises that the Cortex A57 series offers three times better performance than the current top, although that is not further specified.
