Xperia C - Using Mediatek processor quad core
Report of the Taiwan media said that MediaTek has introduced a eight-core chipset for some new clients recently. MT6592 chip sample seems to go to some manufacturers like Sony, to launch devices with this chipset in early 2014.
The Xperia C was Sony’s first smartphone to utilise a MediaTek quad-core chipset (MT6589). The new 28nm MT6592 chip is rumoured to have a native eight-core processor with clock speeds between 1.7GHz to 2.0GHz. Whilst AnTuTu benchmark scores don’t exceed that of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 chipset, they are pretty good in their own right at 30,000. We’d be surprised if Sony wasn’t looking at what MediaTek had to offer to be honest, especially considering the cheaper prices and Sony’s focus on China.
