MediaTek’s strong hold on the Chinese market is slowly becoming more and more loose as the days go by. Qualcomm is only looking to make that further this with the Snapdragon 670 posting incredible scores on Geekbench.
2015 hasn’t really been the year of Qualcomm, their SD810 and SD615 chipsets had major issues and Mediatek really upped their game, but perhaps they can claw their way back with the release of the Snapdragon 820.
When Mediatek first announced it would make an 8-core chip, Qualcomm made a video mocking only to turn around and build octacore chips themselves. What’s going to be the response to the Helio X20 10 core?
