MediaTek has not lived up to expectation with flagship processors and Qualcomm is clearly ahead of the Taiwanese fabless semiconductor company. However, its mid-range chips are not that bad especially its new boy – Helio P60 which was released at MWC 2018 in Barcelona, Spain. Although, the company has not officially listed the manufacturers to use this chip, reports out of China suggests that three Chinese manufacturing giants – Xiaomi, OPPO, and Meizu are scheduled to sport this chip. We already know (from rumors) that OPPO R15 and Meizu E3 will feature a MediaTek Helio P60 but the Xiaomi smartphone to feature this chip is still unknown.
Gizchina News of the week
The MediaTek Helio P60 is designed with Edge AI processing which helps devices to act intuitively. Its hardware supports a camera system with 20MP + 16MP dual camera or 32MP single camera and it also has a power-optimized triple-Image Signal Processor (ISP) system which improves photography. Helio P60 is equipped with CorePilot 4.0 which gives the chip an edge in heavy gaming and multitasking applications. This chip is designed using a 12nm FinFET process and it is equipped with four ARM Cortex-A73 processors clocking 2.0GHz and four ARM A53 processors which also clocks 2.0GHz. Furthermore, it has an ARM Mali-G72 MP3 GPU clocked at up to 800MHz. With this configuration, the Helio P60 gives 70% higher performance than the earlier generation Helio P23 series chipset. Another highlight of this chip is that it comes with much-improved power saving capacity and when compared to Helio P23, P60 delivers up to 12% more power
That’s nice and all but mediatek phones won’t sell unless there are android updates for them.
So it will be a lower estimate in calculation from two days ago & much even under Adreno 509. So much about your optimism.
what do you mean? adreno 509 is still better compared to mali g72 mp3?
As commented earlier:
G72 MP 18 on new Equnos 9810 is some 20% faster than S835 Adreno A540, A512 is half the performance of the A540. Now G72 on Equnos is clocked at 572 MHz the one on MTK P60 will be clocked considerably higher 800~900 MHz which will bring the performance up 40~60% per cluster (with close to tripled power consumption per cluster). That brings us to; G72 MP3 on P60 will be able to achieve 23.3~26.6% performance of G72 MP18 on Exunos SoC & A512 achieves some 45%. In fact it will even be slower than Adreno 509 & 510 (that achieve some 30 – 29%) so it won’t even meet the performance of the T880 MP4 from X20 (29~30%).
Now we know it’s lower one of 23.3% as that’s the one for G72 MP3 @ 800 MHz.
