MediaTek Reveals Pentonic 2000 SoC: The World’s First 7nm Chip for TVs

The Mediatek Pentonic 2000 Seems to Feature the World's Most Powerful CPU and GPU Combination in the TV Industry

MediaTek, the Taiwanese chip maker that has been known as the second-best chip maker after Qualcomm, has already taken the world by storm with its upcoming flagship Dimensity 9000 SoC which is an absolute beast ready to give Qualcomm a run for its money.

However, MediaTek didn’t want to stop there and unveiled its MediaTek Pentonic 2000, the world’s first-ever 7-nanometer processor for TVs built using TSMC’s N7 process.

The new chip that will be built using TSMC’s N7 process reportedly provides a 30% speed improvement with a 55% reduction in power consumption compared to TSMC’s older 16 nm process used to manufacture chips for most consumer electronics.
Interestingly the MediaTek Pentonic 2000 features the world’s fastest CPU and GPU ever found in a TV, with a high bandwidth ultra-wide memory bus combined with support for UFS 3.1 storage and the latest Wi-Fi 6E standard.

The new CPU and GPU allows the chip to provide 8K resolution at refresh rates up to 120Hz, while at the same time providing 4Kor 1080p resolution at refresh rates up to 144Hz, putting the performance at par with top of the line gaming monitors.

And the claims still don’t stop here; the chip also features MediaTek’s new 8K AI-super resolution technology that upscales lower resolution content to the native 8K resolution display while providing real-time image and colour enhancements.

The Pentatonic 2000 is the first commercial 8K TV chip with support for Versatile Video Coding (VVC) H.266 encoder, which results in overall improved compression efficiency providing crisp images.

While the chip is also said to support Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, Dolby’s latest imaging and audio technologies, additionally, the chip also supports AV1 video coding format for streaming services combined with the latest global TV broadcast standard ATSC 3.0, which allows for transmission of 4K 120hz content over the air.
