After recently showcasing MediaTek’s Helio P70 chipset, the Taiwanese chip company is reportedly known to be working on its next premier mid-range SoC, dubbed as Helio P90.
The company has been lately sharing a glimpse of the chip on Twitter. The MediaTek Helio P90 is expected to feature “groundbreaking AI” flaunting more power, precision and efficiency.
The AI bit is definitely believable (at least for a mid-range chip) when you take into account the result that the also not announced Helio P80 was able to achieve in a dedicated benchmark – it was second only to Qualcomm‘s upcoming top of the line SoC.
Just on the verge of Qualcomm’s big announcement on December 4, MediaTek seems to be teasing their competitors and large market that they are nowhere behind in the league of perennial innovation.
We also saw the Helio P80 come second on the AI benchmark result, beaten by the Snapdragon 8150. So it should be pretty easy for the Helio P90 to surpass Qualcomm’s flagship chipset.
