Finally some solid MTK6592 news. Rumors about MTK6592 have abounded and now we’ve got some word directly from MTK Managing Director, Mr. Zhu Shangzu. After rumors circulating had insiders frustrated, Mr. Shangzu finally engaged us with some dialogue. Though I’m not sure we’re any clearer on exactly what the MTK6592 will sport, it’s good to have confirmation that MTK is working on it.

First up, pin-compatibility. The MTK6592 will be pin-compatible with MTK6582. What’s that mean? It means that phones manufactured and made for MTK6582 will enable manufacturers to simply swap out chips, without having to change anything else hardware-wise in the phone. Similar to a computer motherboard which accepts the same socket CPUs. This will greatly speed up time to market.

The MTK6592 will be using 28nm process with 8 A7 cores clocked at up to 2GHz.

Now for the whammy… Current rumor is that MTK6592 may not be going with PowerVR SGX554MP or SGX544MP, but may be going with Mali Quad-Core GPU instead! Though which specific Mali Quad-Core GPU it will be wasn’t made clear. This is a huge change for MTK who has been using PowerVR SGX GPUs for the last several generations of MTK chips.

The time to market is expected to be ‘early 2014’ with the chips being released to manufacturers sometime around November 2013.
