Because of the new MediaTek Kompanio 1380 chip, Chromebooks will have "extra long battery life" - here's why

This is where MediaTek swoops in to save the day with the new brand spankin’ new Kompanio 1380 chip. The leading chipset manufacturer claims that the new system-on-a-chip (SoC) will usher in a new wave of better-performing, longer-lasting Chromebooks. MediaTek’s new Kompanio 1380 chip, based on a six-nanometer architecture, features an octa-core CPU with four high-performance ARM Cortex-A78 cores with speeds up to 3.0 GHz. All of this hardware goodness manifests positively for Chromebooks in the following ways:

Laptop Mag frequently tests Chromebooks in our lab, and according to our data, Chrome OS devices have an average battery runtime of 10 hours.

Kimberly Gedeon, holding a Master’s degree in International Journalism, launched her career as a journalist for MadameNoire’s business beat in 2013. She loved translating stuffy stories about the economy, personal finance and investing into digestible, easy-to-understand, entertaining stories for young women of color. During her time on the business beat, she discovered her passion for tech as she dove into articles about tech entrepreneurship, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and the latest tablets. After eight years of freelancing, dabbling in a myriad of beats, she’s finally found a home at Laptop Mag that accepts her as the crypto-addicted, virtual reality-loving, investing-focused, tech-fascinated nerd she is. Woot!
