The chipset also offers other advanced tech support to the table. This includes in-built MEMC which pairs up with a MediaTek APU. This allows the chipset to automatically and efficiently upscale content of lower resolution. Not only does it upscale the content but applies real-time enhancements to the quality of it as well. In addition, the MediaTek Pentonic 2000 SoC brings multiple picture-in-picture support as well.
The brand new chipset by MediaTek also offers an industry-leading CPU and GPU performance. We also get to see support for super fast UFS 3.1 internal storage. One of the best things about the chipset is that it can also be coupled with MediaTek Wi-Fi 6E. This will offer users with 8K content streaming capabilities on their Smart TVs.
The MediaTek Pentonic 2000 is also the very first commercial 8K TV chipset which brings VVC H.266 media support. VVC stands for Versatile Video Coding which offers an enhanced media compression efficiency. What more, it is backed by Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos support as well. The chipset will be powering 8K Smart TVs which will be launching next year.
