MediaTek Inc. has introduced the MT8135 SoC for high-end tablets that integrates two high-performance ARM Cortex-A15, two ultra-efficient ARM Cortex-A7 processors and the latest GPU from Imagination Technologies, the PowerVR Series6.

Complemented by a highly optimised ARM big-little processing sub-system that allows for heterogeneous multi-processing, the quad-core solution is primed to deliver premium user experiences, stated the company. This includes the ability to seamlessly and efficiently engage in a range of processor-intensive applications such as heavy web-downloading, hardcore gaming, high-quality video viewing and rigorous multi-tasking.

MediaTek has deployed an advanced scheduler algorithm, combined with adaptive thermal and interactive power management to maximise the performance and energy efficiency benefits of the ARM big-little architecture. This technology enables application software to access all of the processors in the big-little cluster simultaneously for a true heterogeneous experience. As the first company to enable heterogeneous multi-processing on a mobile SoC, MediaTek has uniquely positioned the MT8135 to support the next generation of tablet and mobile device designs.

The MT8135 features a MediaTek-developed four-in-one connectivity combination that includes WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and FM, designed to bring highly integrated wireless technologies and expanded functionality to market-leading multimedia tablets. The MT8135 also supports WiFi certified Miracast that makes multimedia content sharing between devices remarkably easier.

In addition, the tablet SoC boasts unprecedented graphics performance enabled by its PowerVR Series6 GPU from Imagination Technologies, added the firm.
