MediaTek launches MT8125 quad-core chip for tablets

Taiwanese chip maker MediaTek makes relatively inexpensive processors for phones, tablets, and other low-power devices. Earlier this month the company introduced a new quad-core chip aimed at smartphones. Now MediaTek is following up with a quad-core tablet chip.

The MediaTek MT8125 is an ARM Cortex-A7 quad-core chip with support for speeds up to 1.5 GHz.


MediaTek’s new tablet chip features PowerVR Series 5 graphics and supports 3G HSPA+ mobile broadband as well as WiFi, Bluetooth, and Miracast wireless display technology.

The company says the chip can be used in tablets with displays up to 1920 x 1200 pixels and cameras up to 13 megapixels.

MediaTek chips have proven popular with Chinese device makers in the past few months, and we’re starting to see the company’s chips show up in relatively low-cost tablets in the US as well. Lenovo, for instance, uses MediaTek processor for some of its latest budget tablets.

    You need to stop calling ‘clock frequency’ speed. It is related but different on different architectures and memory setups

      I believe you are confusing “speed” with “performance”. Processors still use frequency speeds last time I checked.
