MediaTek Discloses Helio G95 4G Gaming Focused Chip
MediaTek has launched MediaTek Helio G95, its most powerful smartphone gaming-focused chip. This chip has in-built premium features such as AI-enabled camera, sharper imaging, graphics, and AI Super Resolution for next-generation Video Streaming, Tele-Conferencing, and Gaming experiences.
MediaTek Helio G95 offers gaming enthusiasts faster performance and high-end features like advanced multi-camera photography – up to 4 cameras, with an inbuilt AI processing unit (APU). It provides dual wake-up word support and enables HDR10 standard display, which can be enhanced to approach HDR10+ quality in real-time.
“The smartphone gaming segment shows sustained growth, with device makers keen on offering newer, more advanced technologies to gaming enthusiasts. MediaTek continues to enhance its G series gaming chips to deliver robust performance and MediaTek Helio G95 is our most powerful gaming chip to date,” said Dr. Yenchi Lee, Deputy General Manager, Wireless Communications Business Unit, MediaTek.
MediaTek Helio G95 incorporates a pair of powerful Arm Cortex-A76 CPUs operating up to 2.05GHz, plus six Cortex-A55 power-efficient CPUs, with upgraded Arm Mali-g76 MC4, operating at up to 900 MHz for advanced single and multicore performance.
The chip is also equipped with an ultra-low power, always-on DSP that supports dual wake-up word detection, ensuring seamless concurrence between two parallel Voice Wakeup (VoW) functions. The ultra-low power DSP minimizes power consumption of applications such as the always-on Google Assistant and supports multiple keyword triggers and virtual assistants.
AI Super Resolution Display
MediaTek’s new chip offers an AI Super Resolution display for superior video calling and video streaming on various platforms like Netflix, Hotstar & Amazon Prime. It can support video qualities ranging from 360p to 720p HD resolution in real-time, reducing the network bandwidth by up to 75% without any perceptible difference in quality. It features FHD+ 90fps displays for fast responsiveness and smooth experience, making the chip ideal for gaming and daily User Interface.
Premium Imaging via Multi-Camera Support
Offering multi-camera support for premium imaging, the chip enables devices featuring up to 64MP camera, with quad-pixel technology for incredible low-light results during night shots. It also enables depth engines for real-time portrait bokeh, AI-FD (Fast & precise AI face detection engine), MFNR, Warping, 3DNR, video encoding and decoding at 4K 30fps, along with integrated APU for AI camera enhancement.
