MediaTek Helio G90 SoC for gaming phones

 

To recall, the Helio P90 was announced in December last year with faster AI and longer battery life than on the Helio P70. The chipset came with two ARM A75 processors clocked at 2.2GHz and six A55 cores operating at 2.0GHz. For graphics, the P90 featured a PowerVR GM 9446 GPU and MediaTek’s newest CorePilot technology to ensure efficient processing and sustainable performance with low power operation. 

 

Taking into consideration that the Helio G90 will be a gaming-based chipset, we can expect Mediatek to employ a more powerful GPU than the PowerVR GM 9446 chip on the P90. The company could likely use ARM’s latest Mali-G77 GPU based on the Valhall GPU design and offering 1.4 times more performance than the Mail-G76. Mali-G77 is also equipped to bring 30 percent additional energy efficiency and 60 percent faster machine learning inference.

 

Prior to this, MediaTek announced the first smartphone system-on-chip powered by ARM’s Cortex-A77 CPU and Mali-G77 GPU at the Computex 2019 event in Taipei. The unnamed chipset also was the first in the world to come with an on-die 5G modem - the Helio M70 5G. In the past couple of months, MediaTek has also announced the Helio P65 chipset for mid-range smartphones and an i700 AI platform for the Internet of Things products.
