A new partnership between MediaTek and AMD has been announced. Combining both companies’ expertise, the new AMD RZ600 Series Wi-Fi 6E Modules are being developed with MediaTek’s Filogic 330P chipset.
The new chipset is designed to deliver faster Wi-Fi speeds by reducing interference from other signals and lowering latency while also consuming a minimal amount of power for longer battery life.
In wanting to provide a seamless connection to its customers, AMD and MediaTek developed certified PCI3 and USB interfaces as well. These will handle modern sleep states and power management to ensure that processes are optimized.
“We believe that combining powerful AMD Ryzen processors with MediaTek’s leadership advanced connectivity technologies will deliver an all-around incredible computing experience,” says Saeid Moshkelani, senior vice president and general manager, client business unit of AMD.
In terms of connectivity, MediaTek’s Filogic 330P offers the latest in today’s standards like 2×2 Wi-Fi 6 (2.4/5GHz) and 6E (6GHz band up to 7.125GHz) and Bluetooth 5.2. Speeds offered can go up to 2.4Gbps and also support the new 6GHz spectrum at 160MHz channel bandwidth.
MediaTek’s power amplifier and low noise amplifier have also been integrated which resulted in a smaller design. This allowed the chip to be installed in laptops across a number of sizes, adding to its accessibility.
Designed to power the next-generation AMD laptops, MediaTek and AMD’s offering will bring an ultra-low-power chipset to laptops so users can enjoy their devices for longer.
The new technology will arrive in laptops by 2022.
