MediaTek is planning on releasing 64-bit quad and octa-core chips for the smartphone market, next quarter. The company is moving a month ahead of schedule in releasing bothÃ‚Â chips.
The MT6732 will be the quad-core solution, while the MT6752 will be an octa-core version of the 64-bit processor.
Ever since AppleÃ‚Â released the 64-bit A7 processor for the Apple iPhone 5s, other nanufacturers have been hard at work to offer their own 64-bit chips.
MediaTek will target low to mid-end devices initially, and will be facing a ton of competition from the likes of Qualcomm, Marvell, Broadcom, NVIDIA and Intel.
By the second half of this year, both segments of the market will see 64-bit and octa-core technology as being mainstream.[signoff predefined=”Enjoy this?” icon=”icon-users”][/signoff]
