MediaTek Pentonic 2000 will power flagship 8K 120Hz TVs

MediaTek is already powering over two billion smart TVs today but they’re taking things to the next level with the Pentonic 2000. The new chip will power future 8K 120Hz TVs.

The MediaTek Pentonic smart TV series is built on MediaTek’s innovative technologies in display, audio, AI,
broadcasting and connectivity. Pentonic 2000 is the world’s first commercial TV chip manufactured using TSMC’s N7 (7nm-class) process, delivering unparalleled performance and power-efficiency.

The all-in-one chip supports 8K 120Hz displays, and can even support 144Hz for gaming PC hardware and the ninth generation of consoles. It’s the first chip with an integrated 8K 120Hz MEMC engine. The chip’s built-in high performance MediaTek APU (AI processor) powers MediaTek’s new 8K AI-Super Resolution technology that intelligently upscales lower-resolution content to the display’s native resolution, while also performing real-time image quality enhancements.

Multiview madness

The Pentonic 2000 supports multiple picture-in-picture (PiP) or picture-by-picture (PbP) screens through MediaTek’s Intelligent View technology. This allows a large 8K resolution display to showcase a display wall of different media sources.

With it consumers can have multiple apps open and stream from different sources, all at the same time. MediaTek’s Intelligent View ensures the video in each window continues to display seamlessly — even when the window size or display layout changes. It also provides the same level of picture quality in each window to ensure the best viewing experience.

Inside the chip is the TV industry’s fastest CPU and GPU, which is fueled by an ultra-wide memory bus
and ultra-fast UFS 3.1 storage. MediaTek Wi-Fi 6E or even 5G cellular modems can be used by device
makers to provide the fastest wireless internet connectivity for 8K streaming media, or up to multiple
streamed sources displayed at once.

Made for streaming

Pentonic 2000 is the first commercial 8K TV chip with Versatile Video Coding (VVC) H.266 media support. It offers improved compression efficiency — an essential in today’s streaming era. It also supports Dolby’s latest imaging and audio technologies to provide the ultimate cinematic experiences in Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.

Additionally, the chip supports AV1 for streaming services and all global TV broadcast standards including the latest ATSC 3.0.
