MediaTek recently announced its latest flagship processor, the Helio G90 and the Helio G90T. The new chips are the first SoCs in their gaming-focused G-Series lineup.
The G90 and G90T feature an octa-core Arm Cortex-A76 and Cortex-A55 cores clocked at up to 2.05GHz. It is paired with a Mali-G76 3EEMC4 with speeds of up to 800MHz with support for up to 10GB LPDDR4x RAM.
The new chips will come with MediaTek’s new “HyperEngine” game technology, which boosts gaming performance of smartphones. It supports HDR10, dual camera arrays of up to 24MP + 16MP, and Cat-12 4G LTE connectivity with download speeds of up to 1Gbps. There’s also a “rapid response engine” designed to accurately sense touchscreen input to eliminate or lessen lag.
There’s no announcement yet on when we’ll see the Helio G90 and G90T, but it’s highly likely to be on an entry-level flagship or an upper midrange smartphone. Either way, both MediaTek and Qualcomm are on their way to secure a space in the gaming market.
