MT6795 is now Helio X10
Starting last week, following a strong showing at the Mobile World Congress, MediaTek has a new brand name for its premium phone SoCs that is easier to remember than MT, followed by four digits.
Both rely on MediaTek 6795 SoC
HTC will be launching two cool phones to follow up the HTC One M9 release. The flagship phone looks good and performs quite well, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810. We could not get to overheat it doing our time with the device.
San Diego born and raised
Samsung's Exynos 7240 is a little miracle, and being the first mobile 14nm SoC in the market has its own benefits.
No one expected such good yields
We found out one rather interesting story at the Mobile World Congress and it sheds more light on Samsung's decision to use Exynos SoCs for most markets instead of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810.
For high-end SoCs
One of the hottest things we learned at the Mobile World Congress is that MediaTek is working with AMD on mobile SoC graphics.
MediaTek MT8173 runs prototype tablet
We had a chance to see the world’s first Cortex-A72 CPU core in the quad-core MediaTek 8173 SoC.
Snapdragon 810 in action
We had a chance to run AnTuTu on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 in the HTC One M9, and we managed to run the latest and greatest 64-bit version of the test.
It can run AMD too
We still hope that there is a chance that we can see the HTC Vive demo in Barcelona at the Mobile World Congress, but we have a slim chance, right next to hell freezing over.
By 2019 says, CFO
AMD definitely plans to win back some market share in the server space with ARM-based chips.
New designs signed and coming
AMD is hoping it can ramp up production of semicustom chips and boost revenue in the long run.
