The top-3 suppliers - Allwinner, Rockchip and MediaTek - are expected to contribute a combined 70.2% to the overall tablet AP shipments to China in the third quarter, Digitimes Research indicated.

Allwinner is forecast to ship a total of seven million tablet APs to the China market in the third quarter, up 16.7% on quarter, Digitimes Research said.
