I'd love to hear some specifics of what will be the specs to meet or beat in LTE and 64-bit cores in 2014.

64-bit

It's shaping up to be quite a horserace behind Apple in this market segment. The key is who will ship 64-bit ARM-based SOCs and when. That kind of low-power RISC architecture is paving the way for smaller companies to take aim at the established giants in the processor market.

Just a couple years ago, who would've said that tablets really need 64-bit performance? Now it seems obvious, and perhaps not only for tablets, but for high end smartphones as well.

MT will be the winner of Asian Markets

Mediatek will be a more successful as compared to the first two giants in Asian markets, as Asian phone market is booming these days and every android phone is shipping with MT chipsets. And these phone is in huge demand as Chinese manufacturers are being able to sale at a very competitive price as compared to Samsung, Apple, HTC and Sony.

What Mediatek has accomplished in this case is to win a solid share of the market in Asia, then move to other geographical areas with time. They are in a pretty good poisiton, but there is no shortage of competitors out there for them to vie against.

Quite right, but simultaneously the demand and affordability of smartphones in Asian market is in increasing curve, and it will continue for next few years, so there is enough vacuum for new competitors and existing both.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
