High performance open source platform

The MediaTek X20 development board is an open source platform jointly launched by ArcherMind Technology (Nanjing) Co., Ltd.

and MediaTek Inc. It conforms to the 96boards specification, with an incredibly powerful 10-core heterogeneous processor,

Mali-T880 series GPU and industry leading multimedia capabilities.

MediaTek X20 deca-core processor

MediaTek X20 is the world’s first smart phone processor with tri-cluster architecture with deca-core. The 10 cores consist of a unique heterogeneous system of an ARM Cortex-A72 ultra-high performance cluster operating up to 2.3GHz,an ARM Cortex-A53 balanced performance cluster up to 1.85GHz and an ARM Cortex-A53 low-energy cluster up to 1.4GHz. Overall performance is improved by up to 15%, with up to 35% less power consumption.

ARM Mali-T880 Graphics Processing Units

Featuring the highest performance series Mali graphics engine, the T880-series, it supports up to WQXGA 2560X1600 60FPS displays with the latest graphics and compute APIs such as OpenGL ES 3.1 and OpenCL 1.2. 4K UltraHD video recording and H.265,VP9 and H.264 hardware video encoding/decoding are supported. With a dual-ISP, it supports camera modules of up to 32 MP.

MediaTek X20 Development Board can maximally support 1080P resolution of the screen
