MediaTek, last week, refreshed their smartphone chipset lineup with the MediaTek Helio P70. As the name suggests, this is the successor of the popular Helio P60 which we’ve seen in a large number of phones. This mid-range chipset is said to be much more powerful and efficient than the Helio P60. The Taiwanese chipset maker claimed to provide a better experience, including clock-speed enhancement in both the CPU and GPU.
MediaTek Helio P70 is built on the success of Helio P60
The Helio P70 is basically an improved and upgraded version of the Helio P60. It is not built from the scratch, rather constructed on Helio P60. With the Helio P70, the brand did a ton of improvements in terms of performance and Artificial Intelligence capabilities. This new processor now delivers up to 30 percent more AI processing efficiency. MediaTek was able to achieve this with multi-threading scheduler. On top of this, Helio P70 offers 4.5 degrees Celsius lower temperature when compared with the P60. With other competitors focusing on gaming performance, MediaTek finally decided to join the party. In terms of gaming, the P70 processor gives you much faster, fluid experience and around 35-percent less power consumption in the GPU.
Other major improvement includes the addition of 24MP+16MP sensors support, 24fps bokeh reading speed, improved AI face detection and shot-to-jpeg processing speeds. It is worth noting that this new chipset has a three-fold improvement over P60 in terms of bokeh reading speed.
MediaTek Helio P70: Technical Specifications
Coming to the figures, MediaTek Helio P70 shares most of its technical specification with the previous Helio P60. The P70 is fabricated over the same 12nm process with eight cores. Out of the eight, the four are clocked at 2.1GHz and the remaining four is clocked at 2.0GHz. When compared with the P60, there is not that big of a difference in clock speeds. In GPU, the brand upped the figures of Mali-G72 MP3 from 800MHz to 900MHz. The rest of the specs remain the same.
Sadly, this chipset is not processed over the latest 10nm fabrication process. Although, the brand does claims improvements in terms of performance and user experience. To really recognize the difference between Helio P60 and Helio P70, we have to wait for smartphones to incorporate it. On that note, Realme is working on their next-gen budget smartphone. That device is going to run on this latest chipset. We’re already aware of the success of P60 that is featured in devices like Oppo F9 Pro and Nokia 5.1 Plus. We can expect decent improvement over that.
