MediaTek Helio P70

Taiwanese chip makes MediaTek Inc has announced the Helio G80. This is the company’s latest addition to the ‘G series’ and a successor to the G70 series which was announced last month. Designed for budget and mid-range gaming smartphones, the chip comes with MediaTek’s HyperEngine game technology.

It packs dual ARM Cortex-A75 and Hexa Cortex-A55 CPUs with the Arm Mali — G52 2EEMC2 with speeds of up to 950MHz and is based on 12nm TSMC FinFET technology. Similar to the G70, the G80 also lacks dedicated APU, which the Helio G90 series have.

MediaTek’s HyperEngine technology includes:

  • Intelligent Speed Uplift for Rapid Gameplay
  • Intelligent prediction of Wi-Fi & LTE concurrency triggers in just 13 milliseconds
  • A faster response between smartphone and cell-tower
    Simply defer calls while in-game without the connection dropping for a moment
  • Resource Management Engine for Better, Longer Gameplay
  • Intelligent, dynamic management of CPU, GPU and memory
  • Smoother performance in heavy-loading game engines, demanding scenes and intense gameplay
  • Enhanced power efficiency for even longer gameplay
