Qualcomm is still the mobile processor market leader, Intel pretty close to MediaTek
With a 64% market share, Qualcomm was the undisputed champion of the SoC market in 2013. MediaTek overtook Intel and gets the silver medal with 12% of the market, while the former is responsible for as much as 8% of all SoCs sold last year. Spreadtrum and Broadcom complement the list of top SoC manufacturers. This information was disclosed by Strategy Analytics, a predictive analysis agency.

The agency also revealed that the baseband processor market has grown by 8.3% to $18.9 billion last year. It is expected that the market will grown even more in 2014 once other manufacturers, such as Marvel, Ericsson, and Nvidia release LTE-enabled SoCs. The increased level of competition will most likely bring LTE-capable baseband processors to even more mid- and low-range devices.

As we told you several weeks ago, Qualcomm posted record financial results for the first fiscal quarter of 2014, which ended in December 2013. The California-based company revealed that it has earned as much as $6.62 billion in revenue and an operating income of $1.26 billion.

You overpowered it with the those A15' s..for that battery, they shouldn't hit more than 1.8GHz

Intel's next wave of phone CPUs are about to launch. Now much more powerful than arm while using less power with improved graphics, built in LTE and US bands and a cheap price these will be very appealing CPUs that make the 805 lookbad.
