MediaTek unveils two new 64-bit chipsets for tablets
The MT8163 chipset is designed for tablets that feature Wi-Fi connectivity only. MediaTek promotes the SoC as one that can produce AnTuTu scores in the 30,000 area. It offers four Cortex A53 cores and can support Android 5.1, H.265 video, dual band Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth 4.0. The chip can also handle screen resolution up to 1080p. There is some talk that manufacturers will be paying $5 a unit for the MT8163.
According to MediaTek, the MT8736 with its 64-bit architecture is 20% faster than the competition while using 10% less power. The chipset can handle high-end camera features including picture-in-picture. It supports FDD-LTE, TDD-LTE, WCDMA, CMDA2000, full-mode 4G tablet TDS, and GSM pipelines. It also carries support for dual-band WiFi, GPS, and Bluetooth 4.0.
The manufacturer might need to do some tweaking still on both chips. The pair are both believed to employ an AMD produced GPU that scored poorly on benchmark tests. The MT8163 and MT8736 are designed for low-to mid-range slates.
