MediaTek bringing LTE and Cortex-A15 big.LITTLE to CES


MediaTek is instantly setting up itself as probably the most well-liked chipset providers however it has best been related to worth-for-cash devices. What it is bringing to CES will assist it break free from that picture and even soar on the wearables bandwagon.

One of the crucial key elements is the MT6290 modem. Constructed on a 28nm course of, the modem helps LTE Cat. four, that means it will probably succeed in downlink speeds of as much as 150Mbps. This chipset is suitable with MediaTek’s present software processors, so integrating it into new products will have to be straightforward.

The MT8135 will also be at the trade show – a big.LITTLE processor with two Cortex-A7s and two Cortex-A15s and a PowerVR Series 6 GPU (same generation as the iPhone 5s GPU). This chipset was announced back in July, so we hope to see actual devices with it at CES. The octa-core MediaTek MT6592 will be at the stands too.

Then there’s the smallest chipset in the world (according to MediaTek), which will be used for wearables (a market set to explode in 2014). Smart TVs, another market gaining popularity, will be catered to by a chipset capable of decoding UHD HEVC-encoded video at 60fps. There will be products for home automation, indoor positioning an Qi wireless charging too.

With demand for NVIDIA Tegra chipsets waning, Samsung’s 5th gen Exynos struggling and TI out of the game, MediaTek has a golden opportunity to become the other big player on the market (other than Qualcomm that is, which is making big promises too).
