In order to create 5G modems for use in laptop processors, Intel will work with MediaTek. Initially, Intel had planned to manufacture 5G chips but gave up since Qualcomm was a stronger competitor.
The T700 5G modem for use in laptops equipped with Intel technology is the result of a collaboration between Intel and MediaTek.
The first 5G device made by MediaTek for laptops is this 5G modem. Non-Standalone Sub-6 5G and standalone 5G calls that are independent of the 4G LTE network are supported by the chip.
The Non-Standalone Sub-6 network will have longer battery life because of enhanced power management, claims MediaTek. In terms of 5G products, Qualcomm is the market leader at the moment. 5G laptops have been released, including the 2-in-1 Dell Latitude 9510 model.
Qualcomm’s 5G Modem is also used by the HP Elite Dragonfly G2 and Lenovo Flex 5G. New laptop models featuring MediaTek’s 5G modems will soon be available thanks to their partnership with Intel.
Due to MediaTek’s product being less expensive than Qualcomm’s, new 5G laptops will also be released at competitive prices.
