MediaTek launches Kompanio 900T chip for tablets, laptops
MediaTek has added Kompanio 900T to its growing range of chipsets for tablets, laptops and Chromebooks.
This mid-range chip is built on TSMC’s 6-nanometer production process with an octa-core processor and features two Cortex A78 performance cores, six Cortex-A55 performance cores and a Mali-G68 graphics processor, along with MediaTek’s own graphics APU and AI performance. The chipset also supports LPDDR5 memory and UFS 3.1 storage.
A huge bonus here is that the Kompanio 900T is compatible with 5G thanks to a special 5G modem that supports standalone (SA) and non-standard (NSA) dual-mode network with full coverage of 5G below-6GHz, along with 5G dual operator aggregation services and voice on new radio (VoNR). The wireless connection doesn’t end there, with Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 also included.
MediaTek says the Kompanio 900T supports displays with a resolution of up to 2K at a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz. The chipset is also able to improve SDR video content to close to HDR quality and can even upgrade HDR10 to near HDR10 + quality, also thanks to this AI engine. All this is done in real time. The chip also supports the use of multiple display extensions, which probably makes it possible to connect to external or secondary monitors.
The Kompanio 900T also supports dual 20-megapixel cameras or a single 108-megapixel camera. Video support is included up to 4K resolution. This would make the chipset ideal for many affordable Android tablets that are likely to hit the market in the next 12 months – although MediaTek has confirmed that the Kompanio 900T-powered devices will be “available soon”.
