Mediatek to launch its own hexa-core chipset - MT6591 - read the full textBeside working on two Cortex-A53-based chipsets and on the reportedly super-fast octa-core Mediatek MT6595, the company obviously has a hexa-core chipset in the pipeline, too. Yup, that's a six-core chipset, much like the just announced Samsung's Exynos 5260 Hexa. The new chip is called the...

MediaTek already has octa core processors in their hands. Why copy Samsung? Hexa core isn't needed when octa core is there. Waiting for the Nvidia chipset.

This is sad. You just knew? Now you must know these.
Who made the first tea powder, airplane, motor car, PC, paper, pen, pencil, door mat, stapler, etc etc etc etc? Remember, this is a business world. Every thing that had been presented to us in the market has the original creator. Whoever follow 2nd, will always be a copy cat. To me, it's nothing wrong. Sometimes copy cat can do better than the original creator. Its a plus for us as user because we have choices rather than being monopolize. Choices meaning getting things cheap or expensive. Way to go China.

Like seriously?? Why?? So that it can play 'Angry Birds' much smoother? Triples the score on benchmarks? Omg.. I thought these people were gonna stop at 'quad', but they didn't, and there came Mr.'octa' and now 'hexa' is in the making.. 😑

I finally know why Mediatek's chipsets suck. They are so busy copying and advertising their products that they don't have time to work on their products. These s**theads even forced Qualcomm's hands and forced them to get into the core race.
