Among both processors it is the MT6592 that’s getting a lot of attention from the media lately due to its true octa-core capability. This means that all eight cores can be used at once unlike Samsung’s current octa-core Exynos chipsets that can use only four cores at a single time. Early AnTuTu benchmark score for the MT6592 has it at 28,000 which places the chip in between the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 and Snapdragon 800.

For most consumers the quad-core MT6588 will be sufficient to handle most tasks. Those looking for more performance on their devices might want to choose the octa-core MT6592.

There are two version of the octa-core chip that’s going to be available in the market. One is running on 1.7GHz while the other will be running on 2.0GHz.  The octa-core model will have a faster GPU compared to the quad-core variant.

MediaTek is reportedly going to price both processors competitively making them interesting to established Android brands. Sony’s upcoming Xperia Tianchi will even be sporting the new MediaTek octa-core chip and is set for a November release. This won’t be the first Sony device using a MediaTek processor as this distinction goes to the Sony Xperia C that uses a quad-core MediaTek MT6589 SoC.
