Today, smartphones for gamers have become an attractive segment for manufacturers. For this purpose, Qualcomm placed a powerful GPU inside the Snapdragon star chips while Huawei boosts its Kirin chipset series through GPU Turbo technology. This made other mobile chip manufacturers stay a little behind. This is especially true for the manufacturer MediaTek. As is well known, in the past, its biggest drawback was the weakness of the GPUs which they usually incorporate and the average game performance of their SoCs. However, the Taiwanese manufacturer wants to leave that fame of weakness in very back games. Mediatek is going to launch the Helio G90 processor designed to boost performance in mobile games.

Qualcomm recently announced the Snapdragon 855 Plus, a boost in power to its high-end chip. This model It offers higher speeds in both CPU and GPU. The central frequency of the CPU has been increased from 2.84 GHz to 2.96 GHz, and the GPU frequency has increased from 585 MHz to 675 MHz. Without a doubt, to be the leading range in the next phones for gamers that will be coming to market soon

As for MediaTek, it is also entering the mobile games market. The recently published pster indic have the manufacturer launch the Helio G90, a mobile phone chip for games. The MediaTek Helio G90 pster comes with the slogan Game Core, Awakening". As you can guess, the letter "G" refers to "gaming." Unfortunately, There is no information about the architecture, frequency, graphics and other parameters of this SoC.

At present, the most advanced MediaTek processor It's the Helio P90 announced last year. This chip is manufactured in a 12 nm process and consists of two Cortex A75 (2.2 GHz) and six Cortex A55 (2.0 GHz) cores. The GPU comes from Imagination, that is, the IMG 9XM-HP8 GPU (PowerVR gm9446) with a frequency of 970 MHz. It provides 50% faster performance than the Mali-G72 MP3 of the Helio P60 and Helio 70 models.

But nevertheless, The Helio P90 still positions in the mid-range market. The main rivals are the Snapdragon 600 series of processors, and above it has the Snapdragon 700 series. After all, the 12 nm process of the Helio P90 is two generations lower than that of the Kirin 980 and the Snapdragon 855. Therefore, it cannot be called a high-end processor.

Earlier this year, MediaTek stated that launch a high-end mobile processor in 2019. In particular, he said the new chip will be updated to a 7 nm process and can support 5G. So there are many reasons to think that the Helio G90 is this chipset.
