MediaTek is expanding its range of Kompanio processors, which were developed for use in ARM-based notebooks and tablets. MediaTek has just presented its new MediaTek Kompanio 900T 5G processor, manufactured with the same 6nm process as the Kompanio 1300T.
The new Kompanio 900T is based on the Dimensity 900, which is designed for smartphones. Kompanio 900T comes with two high-performance Arm Cortex-A78 cores accompanied by six high-efficiency Arm Cortex-A55 cores. MediaTek also keeps a low profile on the GPU and only mentions an ARM Mali-G68 without any further details.
The maximum resolution that it supports is 2000 x 1200 with a refresh rate of 120Hz, and it also integrates 5G connectivity, as well as technology designed to make energy consumption more efficient. In addition to being a multimedia-oriented SoC, it has the MediaTek MiraVision engine, capable of improving SDR content to “almost HDR” and HDR10 content to HDR10+.
In the area of memory, MediaTek relies on LPDDR5 for the RAM and UFS 3.1 for the operating system and its own files. The Kompanio 900T will be used in notebooks and there also in Chromebooks and tablets.
