Dual-Core A15+Dual-Core A7 a different Quad-Core chipset from Mediatek

The Rockchip, Allwinner, Nufront, Mediatek etc are all common chipset solution chipset company by many tablet computers! While, Mediatek is not only widely used in tablets but also in smart mobile phones! And recently we got the information that it would start to produce the MT8135 new quad-core chipset for low-end devices!

However, this time, MT8135 is not a normal quad-core chipset. We know that the previous MT6589 and MT8125 are just based on ARM quad-core cortex-A9 program. While the MT8135 is similar with Samsung Exynos 5410 chipset and used the idea of ARM big.LITTLE. But not like the Samsung put 4 Cortex-A15 and 4 Cortex-A7 into one chipset(we call it fake 8-core CPU). MT8135 has 2 Cortex-A15 and 2 Cortex-A7. So it is fake 4-core cpu cause it can only run two cortex-a15 or two cortex-a7 at the same time, we would say it is dual-core CPU actually! Considering the high power consumption of cortex-a15, so it combines the cortex-a7 to descrease the cost and power consumption!
Mediatek MT8135 is also 28nm  technology with 1GHz+ processor speed. But the detail of specification has not published yet. We can imagine that those tablet computers using this chipset in the near future would be cheap.
