Chipset manufacturer MediaTek has officially unveiled its new chipset, the MediaTek MT6592. The MediaTek MT6592 can be considered as the ‘flagship chipset’ of the company and happens to be a true octa-core chipset.
Yes, that’s right, the MediaTek MT6592 is not an octa-core chipset like the Samsung Exynos chipset found inside the Samsung Galaxy S4 or the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The biggest difference is that even though both these chipsets have 8 cores in total, all these cores can run and process data at the same time on the MediaTek MT6592.
MediaTek says that the new MT6592 chipset has an advanced eight-core processor that can manage a better balance between performance and power consumption. Hence the chipset will not simply drain your smartphone out of juice in order to provide fuel to its 8 cylinders! We do not know how good this balance is, but we are looking forward to some great battery life figures when this chipset is used in smartphones.

The MediaTek MT6592 chipset has been built on 28nm architecture and has 8 cores that can be clocked as high as 2GHz. According to MediaTek, the main reason for designing this chipset is to deliver the best of power and ensure that users have a great experience every time.
The MediaTek MT6592 chipset will be used in a number of high-end smartphone and tablets and aims at delivering an ultimate gaming experience, advanced multi-tasking, enhanced web browsing and seamless performance no matter what the task at hand is.
MediaTek has definitely put in a lot of efforts in designing this chipset, and the various components and the features they provide say it all! The MediaTek MT6592 chipset consists of a lot more technology apart from the octa-core processor. Here’s a list of features supported by the chipset:
- An advanced MediaTek scheduling algorithm that monitors the temperature and the power consumption of the SoC and accordingly delivers optimum performance every time
- A multimedia subsystem equipped with a quad-core graphics engine
- A video playback system that supports up to 4K Ultra-HD playphone
- Support for up to a 16 megapixel camera and full HD display
- ClearMotion technology that converts 24/30 fps videos to 60fps and ensures smoother playback
- An advanced multi-mode cellular modem with support for dual-band 801.11n Wi-Fi, Miracast screen-sharing, Bluetooth, GPS and an FM tuner
So now when we say that the MediaTek MT6592 chipset is actually a powerhouse that will not only provide great power and performance, but at the same time take care of battery usage, you have to believe us!
Now if you are excited about checking out a smartphone that makes use of this MediaTek MT6592 chipset, you will have to wait for some more months. MediaTek MT6592 chipset powered Android smartphones will not be available in the market before the year 2014. But if you are lucky enough, you will be able to get your hands on an Android 4.3 Jelly Bean based smartphone before the end of this year but the KitKat version will be out in 2014 only.
