First Mediatek 20nm SoC coming next year

Written by Fudzilla staff

First half of 2015

Mediatek will not introduce any 20nm SoC designs this year, but it is planning to roll out octa-core 20nm parts in the first half of 2015.

Few chipmakers will. Qualcomm is planning to launch the Snapdragon 810 by the end of the year, but realistically the first devices based on the new chip will show up in early 2015.

The Snapdragon is an octa-core, with four Cortex A53 and four Cortex A57 CPU cores on board. According to Digitimes, the first Mediatek 20nm chip is an octa-core, too. However, it is not clear whether or not it is a big.LITTLE design like Qualcomm’s first 20nm part. 

Mediatek has surprised us in the past, namely with its octa-core MT6592, based on the Cortex A7. For its 20nm octa-cores the company is reportedly planning to use 64-bit CPUs, which narrows the choice down to the Cortex A53 and four Cortex A57. Mediatek could do a 64-bit part with eight Cortex A53 cores, or a big.LITTLE design – or both.

Not much is known about Samsung’s next generation Exynos parts, or 20nm ARM SoCs from other chipmakers.
