MediaTek Helium Helium and 23 X 27 X, New Chips to Pave The Way for Future Helium X 30

MediaTek seems to have noticed that their helium line is being both critical and sales success, and is throwing the rest in its construction by subtracting almost every effort to its numerical chips, which now come in a much more limited way. With the year 2016 coming to an end, Taiwanese just announced the arrival of two new components of the line X: Helium helium and 23 X 27 X.
These two new processors, whose arrival in the market already expected for next year, represent a new dance partner that should replace the previous X 20 and X 25 and that, for practical purposes, it will do exactly the same. Two essentially identical chips that it will only vary in both the CPU and the GPU clock speed. But we’re going to see them in detail.

X means 10

In the same way that P means 8. At least for the time being is thus how to create the dictionary of MediaTek. And with the new helium helium and 23 X 27 X Repeat with the triple cluster of nuclei in both chips. Two chips of maximum power Cortex-A72, four medium-power Cortex-A53 chips and other quad-core power lower Cortex-A53.
The difference, as we said, is the clock speed of each cluster. For helium 23 X have 2, 3 GHz, 1, 85GHz and 1, 4 GHz, while bets go up in Helium 27 X which reaches 2, 6 GHz, 2, 0GHz and 1, 6 GHz. We said that the speed of the GPU also varied and is that although both share the Mali-T880 MP4 quad-core, one has 780 MHz while the other goes up to 875%.
In the rest, everything is similar. Both chips will support resolutions of 2560 x 1600 pixels at 60 fps, and reach the 120 FPS in resolution FulHD. Bear memory LPDDR3 800 MHz with a maximum of 4 GB and have a modem LTE category 6 for connections of up to 500Mbps. The chip will not only, clear, SoC you will find WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth and even an FM radio receiver integrated.
We would miss only the features of the cameras supported by helium 23 X and the X 27. Here we are before an ISP Dual which will support up to 32 megapixel sensors with features such as support for couples of color sensors and monochrome, and the selection of the depth of field. Prepared by both for dual cameras.

Seen all together, would represent a remarkable improvement these new helium 23 X and helium 27 X with respect to its predecessors? The answer clearly is not. Both are a slight update of the high range of MediaTek to pave the way to the great arrival, helium X 30 to bring the native virtual reality to the family of the Taiwanese chips.
While that happens, which is accustomed to that will see few processors already with 20 X and X models 25 once the new reach the market. As we mentioned before, the date is set in 2017 but there is nothing concrete. Our view is, however, in the future X 30 and X 35. They will be the real bets for next year.
