MediaTek Is Quite Confident That Helio X30 Can Take On Snapdragon 820. This is something quite bold for the company as just very recently we finally begin seeing devices equipped with Helio X20 processors.
The new Helio X30 is a deca core processor, with 10nm FinFET architecture. Helio X20 and X25 that are on the market right now are with a 20nm architecture. Four of those 10 cores are Cortex A73 cores clocked at 2.8GHz, four are Cortex A53 cores clocked at 2.2GHz and the final two are Cortex A35 cores at 2GHz.
The most impressive of the X30 is the GPU that holds, a massive improvement over the X20 and X25’s. The X30 has a PowerVR 7XT quad core GPU, which should give it a the much needed boost from its predecessor’s average graphics performance.
The new CPU can support up to 8GB of LPDDR4 RAM, UFS 2.1 storage, up to 26MP camera and dual cameras. The modem included can support three carrier aggregation (3CA) which combines the three bands, and if that isn’t enough the modem also supports LTE Cat. 12.
Helio X30 probably we will see it until the first or second half of next year, since only now we just started seeing devices with X20.
So, is X30 good for you? Do you think it can surpass Snapdragon 820 or the upcoming 821?
