MediaTek Helio X23 and Helio X27 chips are the new member in deca core sporting chipset family, which was started by the Helio X20. Taiwanese chipmaker MediaTek has expanded its deca-core Helio lineup with the launch of these two new chips and now there are four deca-core chips including X20 and X25.
Helio X23 and Helio X27 use the tri-cluster deca-core CPU configuration as well as X20 and X25, and using two high performance ARM Cortex A72 cores for heavy workloads and two sets of quad-core Cortex A53 processors for medium to light workloads. The two new chipsets are said to bring about improvements in the overall performance, camera quality and power consumption of the X2x family. So there are now four members in the X series – X20, X23, X25 and X27.
The Helio X23 processors are clocked thus: 2x Cortex A72 @2.3GHz, 4x Cortex A53 @1.85GHz and 4x Cortex A53 @1.4GHz along with ARM Mali T880MP4 GPU clocked at 780MHz.
The Helio X27 processors are clocked thus: 2x Cortex A72 @2.6GHz, 4x Cortex A53 @2.0GHz and 4x Cortex A53 @1.6GHz along with ARM Mali T880MP4 GPU clocked at 875MHz.
The other configurations of the X23 and X27 remain at par with X20 and X25. These include support for dual Imagiq ISPs and 32MP camera (single camera) or 13MP + 13MP (dual cameras), support for LTE Cat 6 modem and so on. The ISP can support colour + monochrome image sensors as well as depth sensing applications
