MediaTek announced the launch of the Helio P90 system-on-chip, which features APU 2.0, its new generation AI architecture for a great AI processing boost. The new system has 1127 GMACs (2.25TOPs) performance.
The Helio P90 has a built-in processing unit, APU 2.0 to deliver 4X more powerful performance than the Helio P70 and Helio P60 chipsets.
“The Helio P90 gives device makers the ability to offer outstanding camera features, battery life, performance and top of the line AI capabilities, while making devices accessible to mass-market consumers, The Helio P90 is an AI processing powerhouse with ultra-fast performance and a host of AI-powered imaging improvements. This chip will reset consumer expectations of what a smartphone can do, and usher in a new era of super high-resolution smartphone photography to the market” said TL Lee, General Manager of MediaTek’s Wireless Communication business unit.
The octa-core Helio P90 is designed with two Arm A75 processors operating at up to 2.2GHz and six A55 processors operating at up to 2.0GHz. It packs an Imagination Technologies PowerVR GM 9446 GPU. MediaTek’s CorePilot technology ensures efficient processing. Helio P90 gives users the highest sustainable performance with low power operation for the perfect combination of battery life and power on demand.
Helio P90 supports faster, complex and more dynamic AI experiences, Google Lens, deep-learning facial detection, real-time beautification, object and scene identification, artificial reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR) acceleration, plus other real-time enhancements for photos and videos.
Helio P90 comes with 48MP camera or 24+16 MP dual cameras, with the highest resolution advanced smartphone photography, to capture at 48MP with up to 30 frames per second (FPS) with zero shutter delay, or enjoy super slow-motion at 480FPS in HD.
The new ISP AI engine, specially designed to provide AI camera experiences, can accurately detect faces and scenes in real-time under low light and motion conditions. It supports dual SIM dual VoLTE 4G LTE WorldMode with a fast Cat-12 (DL) / Cat-13 (UL) 4G LTE modem. 4×4 MIMO and 256QAM provided better data throughput in highly populated areas. It also supports 2×2 802.11ac and Bluetooth 5.0
