MediaTek Partners with Intel to Bring 5G Connectivity to PCs

MediaTek has announced a new partnership with Intel to integrate its 5G modem into PCs. Through this partnership, Intel will be working with MediaTek on the 5G solution for deployment in key consumer and commercial laptop segments. MediaTek is developing the 5G modem and working with partners to manufacture the solution.

The new 5G modem for PCs is based in part on the Helio M70 5G modem, introduced earlier as part of MediaTek’s integrated 5G system-on-chip for the first wave of 5G flagship smartphones. With 5G poised to unleash a new level of computing and connectivity that will transform the way we interact with the world, Intel’s partnership with MediaTek brings together industry leaders with deep engineering, system integration and connectivity expertise to deliver 5G experiences on the next generation of the world’s best PCs.

This partnership with Intel continues MediaTek’s leadership role in driving the rollout of 5G to the mass market across mobile, home and auto market places. MediaTek has been active in the development of 5G technology, participating in the standardization of the full 5G feature set, and collaborating with industry leaders to establish a 5G industry ecosystem.

Dell and HP are expected to be among the first original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to deliver laptops powered by Intel and MediaTek’s 5G solution. The first rollout of devices is expected for early 2021.
