With the new T800 chipset solution for sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G networks, MediaTek is advancing 5G applications and experiences. Following the release of MediaTek’s T700 5G modem, this quick and energy-efficient 5G solution will enable cutting-edge 5G “beyond smartphone” applications including Industrial IoT, M2M, and always-connected PCs.
The latest T800 chip from MediaTek provides download rates of up to 7.9Gbps and upload speeds of up to 4.2Gbps. With the T800, users can browse, stream, and play games for a longer period of time thanks to MediaTek’s most recent 5G UltraSave power-efficiency technologies, which are optimised for all 5G connection situations.
According to the company, the fully integrated architecture of the T800 contributes to faster time to market and cheaper development costs. The chipset solution includes an envelope tracking module, FR1 transceivers, and a small modem with a fully integrated 3GPP Release-16 5G cellular modem.
“Consumers today want the ability to access 5G speeds from anywhere. MediaTek’s newest 5G chipset solution allows end users to enjoy high-speed, low-latency 5G wherever they are – offering true computing freedom,” said JC Hsu, Corporate Vice President at MediaTek. “The T800 stands out with super fast, reliable 5G speeds in a highly efficient design that maximises battery life for an all-around great user experience.”
Kompanio 520 and Kompanio 528
The Kompanio 520 and Kompanio 528 are two new Kompanio chipsets from MediaTek that are designed for Chromebooks. It is said to offer a seamless experience so customers can browse, play cloud games, stream content, and utilise Google Play apps while enjoying all-day battery life thanks to the improved computational performance and battery life for low-level Chromebooks.
For slick and quick performance, the Kompanio 520 and Kompanio 528 both incorporate two premium Arm Cortex-A76 CPU cores within an octa-core CPU in addition to an updated dual-core graphics engine. The chip supports eMMC 5.1 storage and LPDDR4X RAM (up to 3,733Mbps). The Kompanio 520 and Kompanio 528’s Arm Cortex-A76 cores can run at speeds of up to 2GHz and 2.2GHz, respectively while enhancing battery life so that users may go longer between charges. Each chipset incorporates a dual-core AI processing unit (APU) to provide applications with enhanced AI advancements and AI camera functions.
Additionally, marketers may pair the Kompanio chipsets with MediaTek’s Filogic Wi-Fi 6 solutions for quick and dependable connectivity when customers are streaming and playing cloud games.
A Mali-G52 MC2 2EE GPU and a multimedia engine that can decode VP9 and H.265 videos are responsible for handling graphics. A HiFi-5 DSP for low-power microphone audio processing is also supported. It comes with compatibility for cameras up to 32 MP.
The processor can also control an external monitor and supports FHD+ onboard displays with resolutions of up to 2,520 x 1,080 pixels at 60 frames per second.
By 1H 2023, Chromebooks with the Kompanio 520 and Kompanio 528 chipsets will be marketed.
