MediaTek just unveiled the Pentonic 2000, the world's first commercial TV chip built on the 7nm process. 

According to MediaTek, the Pentonic 2000 supports 8K 120Hz displays and 144Hz for gaming PC hardware or 9th-gen consoles. The Pentonic 2000 is also the world's first chip with an integrated 8K 120Hz MEMC engine, and Versatile Video Coding (VVC) H.266 media support. 

The Pentonic 2000 supports multiple picture-in-picture (PiP) or picture-by-picture (PbP) screens, which allows the 8K resolution display to showcase a display wall of different media sources.

Other specs include UFS 3.1 storage, Wi-Fi 6E connectivity, support for 5G modems, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, AV1 for streaming services and all global TV broadcast standards. 

The next generation of 8K TVs powered by the MediaTek Pentonic 2000 are expected to launch in 2022.
