MediaTek's new Kompanio 900T is a 6nm SoC for Chromebooks and 5G tablets

The chipset is a toned down version of the Kompanio 1300T that MediaTek announced in July.

What you need to know

  • MediaTek has rolled out a new 5G chipset for tablets and notebooks.
  • Similar to the Kompanio 1300T, the new Kompanio 900T is built on a 6nm process.
  • MediaTek says the first devices powered by the chipset will be available "soon."

Earlier this year, MediaTek launched the Kompanio 1300T chipset for premium Android tablets. The Taiwanese chipmaker has now announced a new Kompanio chipset for tablets and notebooks, dubbed the Kompanio 900T.

The Kompanio 900T is manufactured on the same 6nm process as the Kompanio 1300T. It is an octa-core chipset with two Arm Cortex-A78 ultra-performance cores, six Arm Cortex-A55 cores, and an Arm Mali-G68 GPU. As you would expect from a modern 5G chipset that promises "serious computing power," the Kompanio 900T supports LPDDR5 memory and UFS 3.1 storage.

The chipset also supports up to 2K resolution screens with a 120Hz refresh rate. Since tablets are mainly multimedia-focused devices, the chipset features MediaTek's MiraVision image quality engine. MediaTek claims the Kompanio 900T can enhance SDR videos to "near HDR quality" and upgrade HDR10 content to HDR10+.

On the connectivity front, the Kompanio 900T offers 2x2 MIMO Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, and an integrated 5G modem with support for both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) networks.

The first devices featuring the new Kompanio 900T are expected to hit the market "soon." Thanks to its impressive performance, the chipset will likely be used in quite a few upcoming Chromebooks. MediaTek's Kompanio 500, which was announced in late 2019, powers some of the best Chromebooks on the market.

As revealed by data from Counterpoint Research earlier this week, MediaTek was the world's largest smartphone SoC maker in the second quarter of 2021.

It held a 43% share of the global market, thanks to its competitive lineup of low-end and mid-range Dimensity 5G chips. Its flagship Dimensity 1200 is also proving to be quite popular in the high-end segment. Qualcomm's market share, on the other hand, stood at just 24% in the April to June quarter.

The hidden cost of food delivery

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
