While everyone is rushing to 10nm process technology for smartphones, fabless chipmaker MediaTek is about to create a 10 core SoC using TSMC's 20nm process tech.
AMD's Embedded R-Series accelerated processing unit, previously codenamed "Bald Eagle," is powering Samsung's latest set-back-box digital media players.
Thanks to Samsung
GlobalFoundries has started its ramp up in production of 14nm technology and it is mostly thanks to its partnership with Samsung.

MediaTek is going through a big branding transition, so in the future we will see more emphasis on the new Helio brand than on the model numbers such as MT6795.
Server on a chip
Gigabyte's server arm has come out with a couple of 'Server on a Chip' solutions based around ARM chips..
As well as Broadwell and Atoms
Intel recently showcased its Compute Stick, and this marks the emergence of a new niche for chipmaker. As you can imagine, it's a proper PC, but it's roughly the size of a Cromecast HDMI stick.
MT6795 is now Helio X10
Starting last week, following a strong showing at the Mobile World Congress, MediaTek has a new brand name for its premium phone SoCs that is easier to remember than MT, followed by four digits.
Both rely on MediaTek 6795 SoC
HTC will be launching two cool phones to follow up the HTC One M9 release. The flagship phone looks good and performs quite well, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810. We could not get to overheat it doing our time with the device.
San Diego born and raised
Samsung's Exynos 7240 is a little miracle, and being the first mobile 14nm SoC in the market has its own benefits.
No one expected such good yields
We found out one rather interesting story at the Mobile World Congress and it sheds more light on Samsung's decision to use Exynos SoCs for most markets instead of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810.
