MWC 2014: MediaTek announces its first 64-bit chip

MediaTek is the first company to officially announce an SoC based on ARM's 64-bit chips. It has launched the MT6732 which includes a 1.5GHz quad-core CPU.

The CPU is based on the Cortex A53 architecure which is a lower end 64-bit ARM chip. It supports the efficient ARMv8 instruction set and is paired with a Mali-T760 GPU. The Mali GPU supports modern graphics like OpenGL ES 3.0 and OpenCL 1.2.

The SoC will also support Dual-band 802.11n and 150Mbps down/50Mbps up LTE speed.

MediaTek, which is a Taiwan based SoC manufacturer, usually makes SoC's for mid range devices and claims to have shipped about 220 million chipsets for phones in 2013 and about 20 million for tablets.

Devices running on the MT6732 will likely be shipped in early 2015. The company had recently launched its second octa-core processor also.
