Last year, several reports were made on the MT6592, MediaTek's new octa-core SoC. This chip has eight cores, clocked at 1.7 to 2.0 GHz. It can be combined with LPDDR3 667 MHz memory. The processor's video chip is an ARM Mali 450-MP4, clocked at 700 MHz.
Aside from this 'smartphone SoC', MediaTek is rumoured to also be working on a chip that's specifically meant for tablets. This model will be largely the same as the MT6592, but has some optimizations to benefit tablets. Information on this chip has now surfaced in AnTuTu's benchmark database.
It shows a device called 'mt6592_tablet_p1_v1', powered by a MediaTek MT8392 octa-core processor with Mali 450 GPU. It's likely to be a first prototype, which also has a 1280x800 pixel display, 1 GB of memory, 2 GB of storage capacity and a 5 megapixel camera. The chip scores 28.904 points and is slightly better all-round than the MT6592.
