MediaTek released a new generation of smartphone chip platform Helio P65 today. This SoC uses a 12nm process technology and comes with an upgraded mobile game and shooting experience.
The Helio P65 chipset integrates two powerful Arm Cortex-A75 CPUs and six Cortex-A55 processors into a cluster of large shared L3 cache. They are paired with the GPU of Arm G52. MediaTek said the overall performance of the P65 has increased by 25% compared to competing products using the older generation of octa-core architecture.
In terms of specific parameters, the Helio P65 uses an octa-core architecture. Two ARM Cortex-A75 CPUs operate at up to 2GHz, while six Cortex-A55 processors operate at 1.7GHz. The eight-core cluster system shares a large L3 cache. MediaTek’s heterogeneous computing technology CorePilot can achieve intelligent task scheduling, intelligent temperature control management, and user habit monitoring. This will ensure the reliability and consistency of its performance. Thus, it gives an upgraded gaming experience.
The Helio P65 features built-in voice wake-up capabilities and is optimized for platform size and power usage. MediaTek also separates the audio channels of voice commands and phones from the media and games.
Our protagonist supports dual cameras up to 16MP + 16MP. Unlike other mainstream products, the Helio P65 supports the popular 48MP (4-unit) camera in addition to multiple cameras. This SoC offers a variety of hardware accelerators, including a professional-grade depth engine for bokeh effects; Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) technology and Rolling Curtain Compensation (RSC) technology for capturing ultra-fast motion or panoramas up to 240fps; the distortion (Jello effect) video can be subtly compensated when shooting; and when the ambient lighting conditions suddenly change, the camera control unit (CCU) can implement the exposure self-adjustment (Instant AE) to adjust the focus exposure more quickly.
The Helio P65 is equipped with an upgraded inertial navigation engine. It is officially claimed to be more accurately positioned when driving indoors, underground or in a tunnel. The Helio P65 supports dual 4G VoLTE for voice and video call quality, faster connectivity, more reliable coverage, and lower power consumption. In addition, 802.11ac connectivity provides fast Wi-Fi performance, while Bluetooth/Wi-Fi coexistence simplifies product design and ensures reliable performance for the user.
Compared to the previous generation, the Helio P65’s AI performance is up to 2x. At the same time, its AI camera tasks such as object recognition (Google Lens), smart album classification, scene detection, image segmentation, background removal, and portrait shooting have 30% faster AI processing speed than competing products.
Finally, MediaTek said that the Helio P65 is now in volume production and the final products will be available in July.
