MT6517T is MT6577T without 3G?[edit]

If MT6517T is just merely one stripped MT6577T, why MT6517T is Cortex A7 implementation, in-order microarchitecture; meanwhile MT6577T implementing Cortex A9, out-of-order microarchitecture. They are completely two things according to the description in this topic. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Janagewen (talkcontribs) 13:57, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

All your base are belong to us[edit]

Not only "This article appears to be written like an advertisement", as the header says right now. Pearls like "has democratized the global market for smartphones" should have no place in wikipedia, but it is much more telling that there's not a single mention of their GPL violations: they sell devices with modified GPL software, as the Linux kernel, without releasing the source code. I own a device built around one of their SoCs (never again) and there are requests from other users in the forums of the end-manufacturer, and the reply is always "If Mediatek don't release the sources, there's nothing we can do". And I've read about the same situation with Mediatek-based products of other companies.

A guy in the IRC network freenode told that all imports to USA have to comply with the software licenses and that as a result of the GPL violation they can't sell all their devices there. I don't know if that is true, but for sure this issue deserves some mention by an expert and English-speaker editor. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.20.10.66 (talk) 00:44, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

Very long lists of utilizing devices in product list[edit]

The number of utilizing devices listed for some popular chips (e.g. MT6589 family and MT6592) is extremely long, and because of the small column size it impacts the readability of the product list table.

I am not completely against lists of end-products utilizing certain chips, but to improve readability it might be a good idea to either limit the list to the largest manufacturers or to split off device lists to another section. Any sugggestions? Calamites (talk) 23:20, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject templates added[edit]

I have added WikiProject templates for Companies, Technology, Computing and Telecommunications. As a S&P Asia 50 company and being part of the top 25 semiconductor companies worldwide, MediaTek appears to be notable enough to be part of Wikipedia:WikiProject Companies. Its products and engineering seem to also place it in Wikipedia:WikiProject Technology, Wikipedia:WikiProject Computing (since most MediaTek chips contains processors, smartphones and tablets are essentially computers and used as such, and MediaTek's shipments even exceed that of traditional PCs), and Wikipedia:WikiProject Telecommunications (since a significant part of the world population uses MediaTek's technology intensively on a daily basis for telecommunication).

MT6589/6589M/6589T has SGX544MP, not SGX544mp2.[edit]

To user User:5.14.235.160: I noticed you changed the GPU for the MT6589 family from SGX544 to SGX544mp2. However, as can be seen in the SGX544 page on the Imagination website (PowerVR designers),[1] the MT6589 family actually has an SGX544MP (one core), not SGX544MP2. See also [2] I will change the GPU for these chips in the article to SGX544MP.

Also, you changed the header for the chip list from 2013 and later to "(2013-present)" to "(2013-past)". "(2013-past)" does not make sense in English. I will change it to "(2013 and later)". Calamites (talk) 08:24, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
