MediaTek announces Helio P22, a new mid-range 'premium' octa-core SoC

MediaTek announced the newest member of its Helio P family, the P22. According to the company, this is the first 12nm mid-range system-on-chip. It joins its siblings, the P23, P30, and P60, to offer device manufacturers a wide portfolio of options to keep costs low while "meeting mid-tier market demands."

MediaTek unveils the new Helio X30 with CorePilot 4.0 in tow

MediaTek has been busy in the last few months. In December, the semiconductor company launched the Helio X23 and X27 system-on-chips, which were upgrades to the previous X20 and X25, respectively. Then, just earlier this month, we saw the announcement for the Helio P25, a new SoC that hoped to bring some premium smartphone features (especially in regards to photography) to a mid-level chip. And now we have the Helio X30 announced at MWC, MTK's newest high-end entrant that could start a new chapter for the company.

MediaTek announces the new Helio P25 chip for dual-camera smartphones

Even with the AMD complaint against it, MediaTek keeps chugging along with its system-on-chips. The latest in the Helio family is the P25, an evolution of the P20 that is targeted toward dual-camera smartphones (because those are a thing again). This fancy new SoC maintains the power efficiency for which MTK is known while bumping up image and graphics processing capabilities.

MediaTek announces the new Helio X23 and X27 deca-core mobile processors

The name MediaTek is usually associated with lower-end Chinese smartphones and tablets, since their SoCs are rather inexpensive. In the last year or so, the chip manufacturer has been working to push past that reputation. When it introduced the Helio X20, a few people took notice. Innovation is not usually the game with MediaTek, but it does try some interesting CPU designs. Today, it revealed the new Helio X23 and Helio X27 mobile processors.

MediaTek Announces Helio X20, A New Deca-Core Mobile SoC With 'Tri-Cluster' Architecture

MediaTek may not be the first name that comes to mind when talking about CPU innovation, but that doesn't stop the company from doing its best to try and change the game with interesting designs and new takes on existing tech. Today, it announced a new mobile SoC that is unlike anything I've personally heard of before: a deca-core processor with the company's own design that it calls "Tri-Cluster" technology.

This new chip is called the Helio X20, and it actually seems pretty interesting in design. Like "Tri-Cluster" suggests, it splits the 10 CPU cores into three clusters - one with two 2.5Ghz A72 cores for "extreme performance," one with four A53 cores clocked at 2.0Ghz for medium tasks, and a light-load cluster containing four 1.4GHz A53 cores.
