MediaTek T700 brings 5G to laptops with the help of Intel
The new chip also supports non-standalone Sub-6 5G networks and is “highly power-efficient”, according to MediaTek. In practice, this means that you won’t need to worry about battery life when surfing the net on 5G or making calls.
5G connectivity is slowly but steadily coming to laptops and it’s a convenient way to get a fast connection on the road. Most of the models announced so far rely on Qualcomm 5G modems, but Intel will surely dish out many laptops with MediaTek T700 5G to make the most of the partnership. Diversity is key and the more companies get involved in the 5G era, the better.
