MediaTek's Pentonic 2000 is the world's first 7nm TV chip, decodes 8K@120Hz

First and foremost, this is the first 7nm chip for TVs and is based on TSMC's node. Secondly, it's the first to commercial TV chipset to support Versatile Video Coding (VVC) for H.266 content. That's a new codec with improved compression efficiency, mainly for streaming and broadcasting media. HEVC, VP9 and VS3 are also on the list of natively supported encodings.

The first Pentonic 2000-powered TVs are expected to arrive sometime in 2022.
