MediaTek had announced the launch of its new processor. Dubbed as MediaTek Helio P65, the new chipset will be available in upcoming smartphones pretty soon.
The successor of MediaTek Helio P60 comes with a host of interesting features. To start with, the new chipset is made through 12nm process and features eight cores. There are two performance Cortex A75 cores clocked at 2 GHz along with six efficiency Cortex A55 cores. These are interlinked and share a large L3 cache for improved performance. Furthermore, MediaTek’s CorePilot resource control maintains a reliable, consistent performance while gaming.
In terms of AI performance, the Helio P65 is claimed to offer 30 per cent improved performance as compared to its direct competitors. The AI performance has been improved for Google Lens, scene detection, bokeh effects and more. The P65 builds in VoW (voice on wakeup) capability, optimizing platform size and power use. MediaTek has also separated the audio channels for voice commands and calls from media and games, allowing for respectively better quality.
The company claims that the new chipset comes with 25 per cent improved performance as compared to its predecessor. It features Mali-G52 GPU with a frequency of 820MHz. On the camera front, the chipset supports single 48-megapixel sensor or two 16-megapixel sensors for the rear. The chipset also support range of camera features like Depth of Field (Bokeh) effects, Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) and Rolling Shutter Compensation (RSC) technology. The latter allows to mitigate warped (‘jello effect’) video when capturing ultra-fast action (up to 240fps) or panning shots.
The processor is also loaded with a new ISP for faster and safer use of facial recognition while unlocking the device. There is a Camera Control Unit (CCU) that helps enables faster focusing exposure adjustment when environmental lighting conditions change suddenly. For connectivity, the Helio P65 supports dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 5.0 and FM radio.
