    The race to the power of smartphones and tablets is not about to stop. Component manufacturer Mediatek has just announced a new ultra-powerful Helio X30 processor, a mobile ARM processor with 10 cores.


    In detail, the Helio X30 has 2 cores Cortex A73 at 2.5 GHz (designed to support the most resource-intensive applications like some games), but also 4 Cortex A53 at 2.2 GHz and 4 other Cortex A53 at 1 , 9 GHz . With such performance, smartphones and tablets equipped with this processor should not experience reduced performance and loss of speed.

    Even more surprising , Mediatek says that this processor is 50% more economical than the previous ones manufactured by the firm, while being 25% more powerful . Even at the graphic level, the Helio X30 has 800VHz PowerVR 7XT cores that would also be more energy efficient (60% less expensive), while being 2.4 times more powerful than their predecessors.

    It remains to be seen who will be the manufacturers of smartphones and tablets who will choose the first this super processor to equip their next devices. Samsung, Huawei, OnePlus, Moto, Sony ... The bets are open.
