Fabless semiconductor vendor MediaTek has announced an eight core LTE system on chip that supports eight 2GHz ARM Cortex 53 CPUs and a Mali T760 GPU
The MT6752 is also pin compatible with the previously announced quad-core MT6732.
"The MT6752 is part of our commitment to provide high performance yet cost effective solutions, accelerating the global demographic and cultural transformation for the Super-mid market. We continue to democratize technology as previously seen in the TV and DVD industries. We launched world's first true octa-core solution in November 2013 and now we continue to extend our lead to deliver on our vision to make the world a more inclusive place," said Jeffrey Ju, General Manager of the MediaTek Smartphone Business Unit.
The MT6752 platform will be commercially available early Q3 of 2014, with a complete reference design and mass production in Q4.
