Official launch of Mediatek of its new Helio P90 SoC, of which all its specifications have been made known in full. This will be the top of the range of Mediatek for a season and will be manufactured by TSMC in 12nm FinFET, a process that is giving excellent results. The Helio P90 is an Octa Core Chip that makes a big jump compared to the Helio P70 at a graphic level where the company itself figures the improvement by 50%. Also its APU 2.0 is one of the main improvements since it quadruples the performance of the APU of the Helio P70 something that would have to be noticed without a doubt in the processing of images in real time of the cameras.
Helio P90 includes a pair of clusters, the first with high performance with 2 ARM Cortex-A75 processors capable of reaching 2.2Ghz while the second includes 6 ARM Cortex-A55 processors that reach a maximum speed of 2.0Ghz. The GPU this time is in the hands of Imagination Technologies with a PowerVR GM9446 that reaches 970MHz and will allow screens up to resolutions of 2520 x 1080 (Full HD+). It will support up to 8GB of LPDDR4x memory in Dual Channel, storage type UFS 2.1 and sensors up to 48 MP or dual 24 + 16 MP. it will also integrate GPS, WiFi aC, Bluetooth 5.0, FM Radio and a 4G LTE modem Cat-12 (Download) / Cat-13 (Upload).
- It is expected to see the Helio P90 in mid-range Smartphones during the first half of 2019.
