MediaTek’s mobile processors are commonly associated with budget smartphones than gaming, but it is determined to change your mind. The chip designer introduced a Helio G90 with performance and features intended with cutting-edge games in mind. Both the G90 and G90T are 8-core chips that use 2.05GHz Cortex-A76 cores for demanding tasks and Cortex-A55 for less demanding duties, and also Mali-G76 graphics (up to 800MHz) and up to 10GB of LPDDR4x memory.
The G90 chips will use HyperEngine game tech that promises to reduce lag and interruptions. It can invoke LTE, like some phones to help out if you have a bad WiFi connection. It can also maintain two WiFi connections on different bands. MediaTek also vows low touch lag, higher prioritization for processing resources and an image quality engine that supports HDR10 visuals.
Photographers will get support for up to 64-megapixel single- and multi-camera arrays, support for night shots and AI facial detection.
There have been no mention of when G90-equipped phones will ship, which is going to depend on individual manufacturers. Really, it is amazing showing that MediaTek can produce powerful chips you can use for that round of PUBG you have been eager to play. Though they may not be as fast as the best from Qualcomm or Apple, they don’t have to be. Just showing up in lower-cost phones that can offer comparable speed is enough.
