MediaTek has announced a new addition to its line of chipsets specifically intended for Chromebook laptops and tablets. The Kompanio 1380 is a chipset rated for speeds of up to 3GHz thanks to the presence of high-end ARM cores. It may be released soon in the form of an upcoming Acer PC.

MediaTek has launched the 1380 as the latest Kompanio chipset. This family of processors has been established as more tablet-optimized counterparts to the mobile Dimensity line, and is also now pitched at similar devices such as Chromebooks.

On that note, MediaTek asserts that the 1380 has been developed with the demands of modern-day Chrome OS applications in mind. To this end, half of its 8 cores are fast ARM Cortex-A78s, accompanied by a penta-core Mali-G57 GPU. 

Accordingly, the Kompanio 1380 is a 6nm chipset, capable of "outstanding processing performance, best-in-class multimedia and AI features, and smooth cloud gaming capabilities", according to MediaTek's Intelligent Multimedia Business Unit, PC Tseng.

The 1380 is also rated to supports up-to-date connectivity, Wi-Fi 6/6E and Bluetooth 5, included, as well as AV1 decoding and HDR in up to 4K/60fps. MediaTek has indicated that these features might thus be found in a new version of Acer's Chromebook Spin 513, now slated to launch with the Kompanio 1380 instead of a Qualcomm platform soon.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
