The race for 64-bit SoCs has begun to heat up as Taiwan’s MediaTek has announced its own 64-bit MT6732 chip at MWC 2014. With the new chip, the small but up-and-coming chipmaker looks to make inroads into the US market.

The MediaTek MT6732 is a 1.5Ghz quad-core CPU based on the lower-end ARM Cortex A53 architecture. It is paired with a Mali-T760 GPU which supports modern APIs like OpenGL ES 3.0 and Open CL 1.2. Dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and 150Mbps/50Mbps LTE support are included.

MediaTek’s chips are regular feature in mid-end phones and tablets typically in Asia and emerging markets. Mobile vendors like Lenovo, Acer, Huawei and ZTE just to name a few use MediaTek’s portfolio of affordable, mid-range chips.

The new MT6372 will compete directly with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 410.

MediaTek shipped some 220 million chips for phones in 2013 and 20 million for tablets. It hopes to increase numbers to 300 million and 40 million for phones and tablets respectively.

The MT6732 is scheduled for release in September 2014 while a high-end 64-bit chip, the 8-core MT6752 is slated for Q4 2014.
