MediaTek Pentonic 2000 chipset now official




MediaTek has officially unveiled the new Pentonic 2000 chipset, which will power next-generation flagship 8K TVs.

The Pentonic 2000 is dubbed as the world’s first commercial TV chip manufactured using TSMC’s N7 (7nm-class) process, delivering unparalleled performance and power efficiency. In addition, this chip supports 8K 120Hz displays and can even support 144Hz for gaming PC hardware and the ninth generation of consoles.

Moreover, Pentonic 2000 is the first chip with an integrated 8K 120Hz MEMC engine. According to MediaTek, the chip’s built-in high-performance MediaTek APU (AI processor) powers MediaTek’s new 8K AI-Super Resolution technology. This technology intelligently upscales lower-resolution content to the display’s native resolution and performs real-time image quality enhancements.


 

With MediaTek’s Intelligent View technology, the chip supports multiple picture-in-picture (PiP) or picture-by-picture (PbP) screens, allowing a large 8K resolution display to showcase a display wall of different media sources.

MediaTek also claims that the chip is equipped with the TV industry’s fastest CPU and GPU, fueled by an ultra-wide memory bus and UFS 3.1. What’s more, MediaTek Wi-Fi 6E or even 5G cellular modems can be used by device makers to provide the fastest wireless internet connectivity for 8K streaming media or up to multiple streamed sources displayed at once.

Pentonic 2000 is the first commercial 8K TV chip with Versatile Video Coding (VVC) H.266 media support. Besides, the Pentonic 2000 supports Dolby’s latest imaging and audio technologies, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. In addition, the chip supports AV1 for streaming services and all global TV broadcast standards, including the latest ATSC 3.0.

The MediaTek Pentonic 2000 will power next-generation flagship 8K TVs that are expected to launch in the global market in 2022.
