MediaTek muscles into tablets

Written by Peter Scott



Joins Apple, Samsung at the top

MediaTek is on a roll. According to the latest tablet CPU share report from Strategy Analytics, MediaTek is now practically tied with Samsung as the second biggest supplier of tablet chipsets.

Apple still dominates the market with its A5 and A6X processors and it enjoyed a 34 percent revenue share in the second quarter. Samsung and MediaTek had about 10 percent each, although Samsung was in a slim lead. Marvell and Qualcomm also made some progress in Q2, while Intel and Nvidia are expected to gain share in the second half of the year.

"MediaTek, a late comer to the tablet applications processor market, made strong progress in a relatively short time and captured the number three revenue share spot in Q2 2013. MediaTek scored significant design-wins with Acer, Asus and Lenovo,” said senior analyst Sravan Kundojjala.

Strategy Analytics notes that MediaTek's tactics of releasing stand-alone applications processors for the tablet market coupled with its reference design know-how have propelled its share to double-digits in the tablet applications processor market.

On the whole, the tablet SoC market saw 46 percent of year-on-year growth and Q2 revenue was $759 million.
