Apart from MediaTek MT8195, the Taiwanese manufacturer also released the MT8192 chipset. It is intended for Chromebook devices, such as the MT8195 model. Only this time it’s built on a 7nm process. The MT8192 also has lower specs than its brother. It packs a 4x core Cortex A76 configuration.
Furthermore, it is combined with 4x cores Cortex-A55 along with APU 2.0 which only gets 2.4 TOPS. There is currently no word on which devices will use the MT8192 and MT8195 chipsets. But it is reported that Chromebooks using MediaTek’s new chips are expected to come out in the second quarter of 2021.
