MediaTek's ARM tablet chip goes quad-core

  • Media Tek is perhaps best known for its budget ARM processors (single and dual-core) that power a wide range of smartphones and tablets.

    Earlier this month, MediaTek rolled out a quad-core chip targeted at smartphones and is now launching a quad-core tablet processor.

    Essentially, the MT125 is an ARM Cortex-A7 quad-core SoC capable of running at speeds up to 1.5 GHz.

    As expected, the silicon supports PowerVR Series 5 graphics, along with 3G HSPA+ mobile broadband, WiFi, Bluetooth, and Miracast wireless display technology.

    In addition, the chip can be used to power tablets equipped with display up to 1920 x 1200 pixels, as well as cameras up to 13 megapixels.

    Tablets fitted with MediaTek's new silicon will likely hit the streets in Asia over the next few months.
