MediaTek and Intel Partner to Bring 5G Connectivity to the Next Generation of PCs

MediaTek announces 5G modem optimized for key laptop segments.

MediaTek, a fabless semiconductor company, announced it is partnering with Intel to bring MediaTek’s 5G modem to PCs. Intel has been working with MediaTek on the 5G solution for deployment in key laptop segments. MediaTek is developing the 5G modem and working with partners to manufacture the solution. 

The first rollout of devices is expected for early 2021.  

MediaTek’s new 5G modem for PCs is based in part on its Helio M70 5G modem it introduced earlier this year as part of its integrated 5G system-on-chip for 5G flagship smartphones.
