MediaTek has announced the addition of a new flagship variant for its Pentonic chipsets specifically for TVs. The Pentonic 1000 is pitched at the 4K/120Hz screens of the near future, and is rated for on-board support for broadcast standards worldwide as well as high-end TV features such as ALLM, VRR up to 144Hz and multi-split-screen views.

MediaTek has augmented its Pentonic series of silicon custom-designed for TVs with a new chip. The 1000 improves on the up-to-date specs of its 700 sibling with an auto-low latency mode (ALLM) as well as specs such as variable refresh rate (VRR) technology at up to 4K/144Hz for gaming.

Then again, the 1000 seems to lack the « Wi-Fi 7-readiness » of the 700, preferring to go with 6/6E support instead. Nevertheless, MediaTek asserts that it will deliver a flagship-grade experience OEMs might aim for in their next premium 4K TV with on-board demodulation for a global range of broadcast standards.

It will be found alongside the Pentonic 1000’s quad-ARM Cortex-A73 CPU and dual-core Mali-G57 MC2 GPU, clocked at 2GHz and 800MHz respectively. It has an APU for MediaTek’s deep learning acceleration (DLA) that delivers features such as AI-Super Resolution 2.0 and AI-Picture Quality Object Recognition 3.0.

The Pentonic 1000 also packs cutting-edge features such as Dolby Vision IQ with Precision Detail, Dolby Atmos 2.6 and the MediaTek Intelligent View technology necessary to split a screen into up to 8 individual windows for different sources or video-conferencing feeds.

MediaTek estimates that the first TV to ship with the Pentonic 1000 will be on the market in the first quarter of 2023.
