jonathan, 19 Apr 2015Mediateak, mediatek. You are the most hated CPUs by custom ROM devlopers like me. Why don't yo... moreBecause someone at the upper management thinks that their tech is so unique and forward-looking that providing open source drivers would somehow help their competitors. It's mostly not true, of course, but still
there has been companies like that since there have been opens source operating systems. For example NVidia is still reluctant to give info about their latest GPU designs to open source developers.
What a complete utter fail, Mediatek you are an embarrassment to this industry please disappear quickly.
Mediateak, mediatek. You are the most hated CPUs by custom ROM devlopers like me. Why don't you provide the source for your chips?

max, 18 Apr 2015They will be cheap.Like cheaper than $10 each.Yes. Mediatek must be feeling the heat of the ultra-cheap Allwinner A3x and A8x tablet SoCs and tries to play the 64-bit card.
Vegator, 18 Apr 2015The MT8735 is most likely the same chip as the MT6735, a new entry-level SoC for smartphones. ... moreWell that's news to me. GSMArena didn't even reported the launch of MT8173. I won't say it sounds promising cause we know so little about it right now. But at least now I know that A72 is build around performance and not efficiency quite like the A57.
Umbilical Noose, 18 Apr 2015They should try the new A72 cores. A53 with A72 would be a nice choice if they can keep the di... moreDie size of 20nm? To call this a technological revolution would be an understatement. :)
The MT8735 is most likely the same chip as the MT6735, a new entry-level SoC for smartphones. Previously, MediaTek has sold the same chip for both tablets and smartphones but with different version numbers (e.g. MT8382 vs MT6582, MT8312 vs MT6572). All these chip have an integrated cellular modem (3G/4G).
MT8163 however is a Wi-Fi-only SoC, it does not have an integrated modem, so is mainly suitable for tablets. Other MediaTek SoCs for tablets without 3G/4G include the MT8127 and the recently announced MT8173 with Cortex-A72 cores.
They should try the new A72 cores. A53 with A72 would be a nice choice if they can keep the die size close to 20nm.
thejamesarnold, 18 Apr 2015what's the point of having a separate chipset for tablet? and they're boasting it can run 1080... moreMT8163 this is for budget. u can get this tablet using for this less than 150usd
MT8735 this is for performance. u get simcard slot so u can use 4G LTE in this tablet also u can direct play dtv using this tablet.
what's the point of having a separate chipset for tablet? and they're boasting it can run 1080 displays? mediatek has already chipsets that are capable of running 1080 displays for phones and tablets... I just don't get this...
