MediaTek continues to set monthly and quarterly revenue records

MediaTek continues to set monthly and quarterly revenue records
Chipset designer MediaTek reported August revenue of $827.9 million. That is a 4.2% gain from July's revenue, and an impressive 36.1% gain year-over-year. For the second quarter of 2016, the company reported sales of $2.32 billion. That was a record amount of revenue for any quarter in MediaTek's history. And another record is expected for the third quarter as MediaTek expects to post revenue of $2.51 billion to $2.69 billion from July through September. That would be a gain of 8% to 16%

August set a record for an individual month as Chinese smartphone manufacturers continue to fall in love with MediaTek's chipset range. Some are turning to the company's deca-core CPU to power their phones. Industry watchers say that another record will be set in September as companies like Oppo continue to ply MediaTek with orders.

MediaTek is also expanding its order book to include manufacturers like Asus (for the Asus ZenPad 3S 10). Microsoft's Xbox One S is also employing a MediaTek SoC inside.

Hi, Alan F. You said: "Microsoft's Xbox One S is also employing a MediaTek SoC inside" I suggest you clairify that statement. MediaTek's SoC used in the Xbox One S is only for WI-FI and wireless connectivity. The powerhouse SoC is from AMD. I mean, if you do not clairify it, those who are ignorant could think that the MediaTek SoC employed in the Xbox One S is used as powerhouse (computation and graphics), which is kinda misleading... Just my two cents.

their computing performance is really bang for buck, 85.000+ antutu score for ~$200 device that uses helio X20/X25 (SD650 inside redmi note 3 pro have faster GPU and cheaper, but that is rare case, other SD650 devices isn't that cheap :P) mediatek need to improve this part: - no 4k recording - they already have quick charge, but manufacturer rarely use it - GPU is weak

I'm impressed with the performance of the lenovo k4 note which my colleague owns. All mediatek needs to do is release their driver sources and optimise their kernel and drivers for better performance and battery management.

I agree with your improvements they always use the crappiest GPU's. I've also noticed most mediatek devices don't bother using NFC. What gives? Off the top of my head I can only think of the Elephone p9000. Also no mediatek devices that I know of have OIS in there cameras. But those are both manufacturer faults.
