Me­di­aTek ex­pands He­lio chips with P se­ries

The China Post - - LOCAL -

Tai­wan’s Me­di­aTek Inc., a ma­jor sup­plier of hand­set chips to Chi­nese man­u­fac­tur­ers, launched the He­lio P10 sys­tem-on-a-chip (SoC) Mon­day at Com­pu­tex Taipei to fo­cus on the grow­ing de­mand for slim smartphones with strong fea­tures.

The He­lio P10 runs a 2GHz octa-core 64-bit pro­ces­sor based on the Cor­tex-A53 ar­chi­tec­ture and a 700MHz dual-core 64-bit Mali-T860 graphic pro­cess­ing unit.

The SoC will be avail­able in the third quar­ter of this year and is ex- pected to be in con­sumer prod­ucts in late 2015, ac­cord­ing to Me­di­aTek.

The P10 is the first chip in the new He­lio P fam­ily, a se­ries that the Hs­inchu-based com­pany said is aimed at in­te­grat­ing fea­tures such as high-per­for­mance mo­dem tech­nol­ogy into a high-value chipset.

With the help of Tai­wan Semi­con­duc­tor Man­u­fac­tur­ing Co.’ s (TSMC’s) lat­est 28HPC+ process tech­nol­ogy and nu­mer­ous ar­chi­tec­ture and cir­cuit de­sign op­ti­miza­tions, the He­lio P10 can re­duce power con­sump­tion by 30 per­cent com­pared to ex­ist­ing smart­phone SoCs man­u­fac­tured us­ing the 28 HPC process tech­nol­ogy, Me­di­aTek said.

“The P se­ries will pro­vide OEM smart­phone mak­ers with greater de­sign flex­i­bil­ity to meet con­sumer de­mands for slim form­fac­tors, which pro­vide dy­namic mul­ti­me­dia ex­pe­ri­ences,” said Jef­frey Ju, se­nior vice pres­i­dent of Me­di­aTek.

“The P10 en­ables state-of-the-art mo­bile com­put­ing and mul­ti­me­dia fea­tures all while bal­anc­ing per­for­mance and bat­tery life,” Ju noted.
