MediaTek Helio X30 chipset which was announced a couple of months ago and yet to be embedded in a smartphone recently spotted on a benchmarking website. earlier, the Chinese chipset manufacturer announced this processor in the month of August with plans of pushing further into flagship chipset market. The X30 is the second deca-core chipset from the company, following the trail of X20.
The X30 chipset is built with process size of 10nm which is a significant improvement from the 20nm sized X20 chipset. It includes two Cortex A-53 cores clocked at 2.0GHz, four Cortex A-73 cores clocked at 2.2GHz and another set of four Cortex A-73 cores clocked at 2.8GHz.
Coming back to the benchmarking website, where a number of devices with strange names spotted with MediaTek Helio X30. Looking at its benchmarking scores for multi-core, it surpasses all the Snapdragon chipsets. However, it does score a little disappointing for the single core. But at the same time, the listing also reveal the chipset to be heavily underclocked which justifies the lower single-core score.
According to the MediaTek, the chipset will support up to 8GB of LPDDR4 RAM which is quite better than Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 which support up to 6GB of RAM. Also, the X30 chipset comes with UFS 2.1 rapid-fast storage technology and camera support up to 23-megapixel. The MediaTek X30 chipset will compete with next generation of Qualcomm Snapdragon and Samsung Exynos 10nm chipsets. We’re speculating to see smartphones powered by X30 chipset in mid next year.
