If you think it’s time to improve your setup, Hisense has you covered with some amazing new announcements at CES 2022.

The Latest from the 2021 MediaTek Summit: Dimensity 9000 is LPDDR5X Validated, and Pentonic 2000 Will Deliver Flagship Smart TV Experiences

I’m in Laguna Beach attending the second day of the 2021 MediaTek Summit, and there have been several announcements revolving around their latest chipsets, including cameos from partnering companies.
