Continuing with the Mediatek product announcements. Today they announced the Pentonic 1000 chipset, which is designed for 4K displays with a refresh rate of 120Hz.
This new powerful chipset integrates all the technology you could want for a modern TV.
As well as the 4K 120Hz support, it is capable of VRR up to 4K at 144Hz for gaming applications. In addition to supporting super-fast frame rates for smoother gaming, it provides a lag-free experience with Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM).
Connectivity gets a big boost with Wi-Fi 6 and 6E, allowing you to achieve multigigabit throughput for quick downloads and no buffering.
It then supports hardware decoding of all the latest codecs, including ATSC 3.0, AV1, HEVC, VP9 and AVS3 standards, but is also designed for VVC (H.266) to usher in the first wave of VVC adoption.
The quality of the video should also be improved thanks to Dolby Vision IQ with Precision Detail. This unlocks more from Dolby Vision content by revealing incredible detail in both bright and dark areas. With added texture and depth, images take on a new dimension with astonishing crispness on 4K smart TVs. In addition to Precision Detail, MediaTek’s Intelligent View technology paired with Dolby’s latest advancements in imaging technology can process multiple Dolby Vision streams simultaneously. Consumers can now watch different media sources at the same time in Dolby Vision in multiple windows, all in stunning detail.
Just like the phone chipsets, the Pentonic 1000 has powerful AI processing. The on-chip AI engine delivers industry-leading AI enhancements with higher performance and power efficiency compared to other multi-chip platforms. MediaTek’s upgraded AISuper Resolution (AI-SR) technology provides edge smoothing and detail reconstruction to make FHD look like 4K, while the company’s AI-Picture Quality (AI-PQ) Scene Recognition and AI-PQ Object Recognition technologies improve picture quality for realistic depth perception that brings content to life.
