MediaTek Kompanio 520


Elevating Entry Performance

The MediaTek Kompanio 520 processor is a significant upgrade to entry Chromebooks, elevating CPU and graphics performance in everyday activities like web, media, casual gaming, streaming, Google Play apps and educational activities such as STEM, Tinkercad and Minecraft Education Edition.

Now featuring two, premium Arm Cortex-A76 CPU cores within its octa-core CPU, plus an upgraded dual-core graphics engine, performance is notably smoother and more responsive. Faster memory and storage balance the platform with improved data-throughput performance. Users benefit from superfast start-up times for immediate connectivity, breeze through multitasking with multiple applications, and take advantage of even longer battery life for all-day use.

  • Over 80% greater single core CPU performance
  • Over 15% greater multi-core CPU performance
  • Upgraded GPU with over 20% greater performance

Smooth & Detailed Video Streaming

A new-generation imaging processor upgrades performance and improves power efficiency, allowing device makers to build Chromebooks with large 32MP cameras to capture highly detailed images. Up to 60fps Full HD video recording goes far beyond basic webcam experiences to give more detailed, smoother, and more natural virtual interactions in online conferencing, remote education, and working from home.

The cameras are backed by MediaTek’s hardware imaging engine that works behind the scenes to automatically enhance photo and video capture in all lighting conditions.

  • Smartphone-like camera quality and experience
  • Excellent low-light capture performance

More Detailed Displays

With a greater resolution Full HD+ display and the ability to add a Full HD external display – over twice the resolution of the previous generation – the Kompanio 520 provides a notable boost to dual monitor productivity, and is more suited for projectors and presentations in work and education. It is ideal for connecting to smart TVs to play movies, shows and online streams.

  • 2.25X greater resolution external display than previous generation
  • Ideal for a second display or viewing on a projector or smart TV

Enhanced Multimedia

An upgraded multimedia engine now includes VP9 decoding that’s ideal for YouTube and web video. A new, dedicated HiFi-5 DSP provides ultra-low power audio microphone processing, whether for video conferencing interactions, or for device makers to include virtual assistants.

  • 2X faster video encoding performance
  • Power-efficient microphone audio processing engine
