The major chip makers revenue share
MediaTek ranked third, with a share of 14%, less than 18% of the same period of previous year; Samsung Electronics share of 11%, higher than 8% over the same period last year; Huawei Hass chip share of 8%, higher than the same period last year Of the 6%.
Neil Shah, director of research at Counterpoint, says the industry has focused on the number of cores each chip contains. "Apple and Huawei have both introduced SoC with a neural network processing unit, NPU, to handle artificial intelligence tasks," Saha said. This trend will gradually intensify over the next few years.
