MediaTek launches 6nm chipset for tablets
Earlier this year, MediaTek released the Kompanio 1300T chipset for high-end tablets. Today, the chipset manufacturer announced a less powerful follow-up product to the 1300T platform-MediaTek Kompanio 900T, which focuses on tablets, portable laptops, and other devices. MediaTek’s Kompanio platform is a chipset platform that focuses on large-screen computing devices such as tablets and notebooks, which is different from the Dimensity chipset platform that focuses on mobile devices.
Kompanio 900T uses the same 6nm node process as the 1300T. It is an eight-core CPU with two Arm Cortex-A78 ultra-high performance cores and six Arm Cortex-A55 energy-saving cores. In addition to the powerful CPU, it is also equipped with Arm Mali-G68 GPU and MediaTek APU, which can provide “powerful mobile computing capabilities.” It also supports LPDDR5 memory and UFS 3.1 storage.
The processor required by modern tablet computers can handle screens up to 2K resolution with a refresh rate of 120Hz. MediaTek also equipped Kompanio 900T with MiraVision technology to improve image quality. MediaTek said it can upgrade SDR video to “close to HDR quality” and HDR to “close to HDR10+”. It also provides real-time image enhancement for videos already in HDR10+.
In terms of connectivity, Kompanio 900T is a 5G chipset that supports independent (SA) and non-independent (NSA) networks in the sub-6GHz range. It supports dual-carrier aggregation to provide higher speeds and MediaTek’s 5G UltraSave technology, which is expected to reduce power consumption by 50% when using 5G. It also supports dual 5G SIM cards and Voice over New Radio (VoNR) technology. According to the requirements of modern tablets, the chipset is equipped with Wi-Fi 6 with 2×2 MIMO technology and Bluetooth 5.2 support.
