Recently, Realtek showed the RTD2893 chip, which is the first 8K image decoding and processing chip to be showcased by them.
The transition to 8K Ultra HD TVs requires not only new display panels, new display technologies, new wires and new media but also new codecs and new SoCs. To this end, Realtek demonstrated its first 8K image decoding and processing chip, supporting TVs, set-top boxes and players. Expect a lot more devices to be launched in the coming time with these chips. You can read the salient features of this chip in the image below.
According to the Anandtech’s website, the Realtek RTD2983 has PCIe and USB 3.0 interfaces. The Realtek RTD2893 chip supports 8K AV1, HEVC, VP9 image decoding, HDMI 2.1 8K input and output, USB and PCIe security image stream transmission. And it also supports all HDR specifications of 8K image processing.
It should be noted that due to the scarcity of Ultra HD content, Realtek’s RTD2983 platform uses static images; the lack of complex motion images may be a bit disappointing for many users.
