According to a published report in China, Amazon has signed a deal with MediaTek to supply chips for the Amazon Kindle Fire tablets. The report says that Amazon will use the MT8135 quad-core chipset which features ARM’s big.LITTLE design. This includes two Cortex-A15 cores that are fast and used for graphic intensive duties while the two Cortex-A7 cores are used for basic stuff.
Signing a deal with Amazon would be pretty amazing for MediaTek, since the online retailer has become the fourth largest tablet vendor in the global market. Amazon ships 1.8 million to 2 million Kindle Fire units a quarter, just zipping them out the door.
MediaTek has not confirmed the report, but the company did say that it would sign any potential client to a deal. Especially a client like this.
