Qualcomm and Samsung aren’t the only ones who are working on new 64-bit mobile processors. MediaTek, the relatively low-cost SoC provider from Taiwan is also working on a brand new 64-bit mobile processor SoC. According to a newly leaked slide, which shows the company’s 2015 roadmap, MediaTek is working on a new 20nm high-end chipset with LTE connectivity, though it hasn’t been given a final model number yet.
The MT67xx chipset, which can be seen in the slide, will feature an octa-core 64-bit CPU, which is built using a 20nm fabrication process, along with LTE connectivity. In comparison, both Qualcomm and Samsung already have SoCs based on 20nm manufacturing process, which means that MediaTek is a full year late in releasing a competing SoC. Moreover, Qualcomm is on its way to develop their first SoC based on a relatively power-efficient 14nm FinFet process.
Other chipsets, which are showcased on the leaked slide, are the MT6735, the MT6735M, the MT6580, and the MT6570. The first two chipsets feature quad-core 64-bit Cortex A53 CPU built using 28nm LP, while the latter chipsets feature Cortex A7 CPU cores, and 3G connectivity.
