MediaTek announced the first octa core SoC for portable devices!

MediaTek announced yesterday the first true octa-core processor in the world for portable devices such as smartphones and tablets. The company's SoC uses 8 cores simultaneously and not only 4 of them like the Exynos Octa SoC by Samsung.


Both SoC's are based on ARM's big.LITTLE CPU clusters but thanks to a special time programming algorithm, MediaTek's solution manages to use all 8 cores at the same time offering impressive benchmarks! One of the most impressive features of this 8 core SoC is that it can understand when you want to browse the Internet and at that time it offers one core exclusively for each one of your browser's tabs!
