How is the MediaTek Helio P70

MediaTek Helio P70 presented: More power for affordable smartphones

The Taiwanese chip manufacturer MediaTek has presented a new mid-range SoC that is supposed to give cheap smartphones a good performance. The company is upgrading the graphics unit and the CPU cores in the new MediaTek Helio P70, among other things, in order to achieve more performance not only in terms of computing speed. According to the manufacturer, the MediaTek Helio P70 is an octacore SoC with a structure width of 12 nanometers, which has four ARM Cortex-53 cores with a maximum clock rate of 2.0 gigahertz and four ARM Cortex-A73 cores up to 2.1 gigahertz disposes. This means that the SoC should compete with chips such as the Huawei Kirin 710 or the mid-range SoCs from Qualcomm.


In addition, the Helio P70 also has a three-core ARM Mali-G72 graphics unit on board, which achieves a maximum clock rate of 900 megahertz and is supposed to take on tasks from the field of artificial intelligence in addition to pure graphics calculation. Overall, MediaTek promises a performance increase of around 13 percent compared to the predecessor Helio P60.

For the first time, the P70 also has its own "AI engine", which is used to outsource various features based on artificial intelligence to a dedicated part of the chip, thereby relieving the CPU and GPU as much as possible. The new SoC can expressly also be used in devices with face recognition.

There is also support for camera resolutions of up to 32 megapixels for a single camera, while dual cam configurations with sensors with 16 and 24 megapixels are also possible. In addition, the chip has an integrated LTE modem that allows downstream speeds of up to 300 Mbit / s. Dual SIM and Dual VoLTE are also possible.

MediaTek plans to have the new Helio P70 mass-produced by the Taiwanese contract manufacturer TSMC with immediate effect and is assuming that the first devices with the new chip will come onto the market from November. The P70 will probably be used primarily in devices for the Asian markets and in cheap smartphones from China. Processor, SoC, Mediatek, ARM CPU, MediaTek LogoToms hardware
