EUROSTAR Group and Fly UK launched the Tornado IQ455 Smartphone in the UAE today for AED 799. The Tornado IQ455 is powered by MediaTek’s MT6592 true octa-core chipset which benefits from MediaTek’s scalable octa-core architecture that can run both low-power and processor intensive tasks highly efficiently by harnessing the full capabilities of its eight individual CPU cores in optimal combination.
MediaTek’s MT6592 chipset is the world’s first SoC to integrate eight power-efficient ARM Cortex-A7 processors, each clocked at up to 2GHz in an individually scalable configuration as necessitated by the handset’s task workload using MediaTek’s CorePilot technology, thereby delivering excellent performance-per-watt. In addition to the groundbreaking True octa-core CPU architecture, the MT6592 features a quad-core graphics engine, enabling an immersive console-like gaming experience.
