Qualcomm is currently the hardware manufacturer that makes the most powerful chips for smartphones but this doesn’t mean that Qualcomm doesn’t have any real competition. While the new Snapdragon 855 Plus CPU might offer outstanding performances, Qualcomm’s competitors are not backing down at all. In fact, the Taiwanese chip manufacturer MediaTek has announced two brand-new flagship smartphone processors called Helio G90 and G90T.
Introducing: MediaTek Helio G90 and G90T
The new chips from MediaTek are shipping with an octa-core CPU that clocks at the maximum speed of 2.05GHz. The processor features the same ARM Cortex-A76 and A55 cores as the latest processors from Qualcomm and Huawei do. This is quite impressive and to make things even better, the new MediaTek chips are also bundled with a Mali G76 graphics processing unit that speeds up to 800MHz and supports up to 10GB of LPDDR4x RAM.
MediaTek was proud to announce that the new G90 and G90T chips will feature the HyperEngine technology. This technology has been patented by MediaTek and it consists of several features that have been specially designed to boost the overall performance of mobile games.
Furthermore, the two MediaTek chips support HDR10 and they benefit from an intelligent network prediction engine that according to MediaTek can sense when the Wi-Fi quality is dropping and automatically switch the internet connectivity to mobile data (LTE).
From the looks of it, the new chips from MediaTek are perfect for people who enjoy playing mobile games. To top it all off, MediaTek has also equipped with them with a “rapid response engine” that will make the touchscreen controls feel more responsive than usual.
As previously noted, the new MediaTek chips are ideal for gaming smartphone such as the new Razer Phone 2 or Asus ROG Phone 2. Let’s just hope that the new chips are impressive enough so that smartphone makers decide to drop their contracts with Qualcomm.
