MediaTek announced the launch of its Kompanio 1300T, an SoC (system on chip) designed to power incredible experiences across computing devices. Built on the leading 6nm process technology, the chip is bringing premium performance to tablets with advanced 5G, multimedia, AI, and gaming technologies for a premium user experience.
Kompanio 1300T allows OEMs to build powerful, lightweight, and portable tablets for online education, business, streaming services, gaming, and artificial intelligence (AI) applications.
“There is a growing demand right now for personal computing devices designed for both remote work and multimedia entertainment,” said PC Tseng, GM of Intelligent Multimedia Business Unit at MediaTek. “Our Kompanio chips allow brands to design lightweight tablets and personal computing products with robust performance and prolonged battery life so they can bring innovative features and new mobile computing experiences to users.”
The Kompanio 1300T chip is built on TSMC’s 6nm process technology and integrates an octa-core CPU with high-performance Arm Cortex-A78 cores and power-efficient Arm Cortex-A55 cores. Also, its high-performance nine-core Arm Mali-G77 MC9 GPU provides premium computing performance and supports high frame rates for longer, smoother gaming.
The Kompanio 1300T promises to deliver faster, more reliable Wi-Fi connectivity for ultra-efficient performance and all-day battery life. It incorporates MediaTek’s APU (AI processing unit) to provide powerful, energy-efficient AI computing power for the latest voice and visual applications.
The Kompanio 1300T integrates MediaTek’s cutting-edge 5G technologies with support for a complete set of 5G sub-6GHz bands, 5G-2CA as well as Dual 5G SIM, in addition to supporting 5G Elevator Mode and 5G HSR Mode enhancements, it allows users to enjoy high-speed connectivity for a variety of applications. Combined with MediaTek’s 5G UltraSave power-saving enhancements, the platform can automatically adjust power consumption and other configurations based on a device’s network and data transmission quality to extend battery life.
As for multimedia, the Kompanio 1300T supports multiple-scene HDR10+, AI-PQ (picture quality) technologies, and MediaTek’s chip-level eye protection engine to filter blue light. The chip also supports staggered 4K HDR video recording technology and integrates the latest imaging, encoding, decoding and playback features for unrivaled 4K video capabilities.
Kompanio chips are now widely adopted by many device manufacturers, powering several best-selling personal computing devices, including Chromebooks and tablets. Tablet computers powered by the Kompanio 1300T platform are expected to be announced in the third quarter of 2021.
