MediaTek’s Helio P series chipsets are both agile and powerful, and offer smartphone manufacturers a highly flexible tool that allows them to differentiate themselves in the most competitive segment thanks to their performance and, with that premise in mind, on today’s article we are going to talk about three of the processors that are under this series, and it is a war between Helio G70 vs Helio P70 vs Helio P60.
Let’s start this great fight of Titans talking about the CPUs that are inside these three processors. First, we have the Helio G70, which has a 12nm process with a dual-cluster design (2+6) on the octa-core architecture. This architecture works in base of two Cortex A75 high-performance cores running at 2.0GHz and six Cortex A55 power-efficient cores running at 1.7GHz.
That being said, this processor is based on a 12nm octa-core 64-bit memory architecture that works with ARM. The 8 cores of Helio P70 are divided into two parts according to the management of the tasks, so there are 4 main Cortex ARM 73 cores at a maximum clock speed of 2.1GHz and 4 cores for power saving Cortex ARM 53 at 2.0GHz.
On the other hand, with respect to the Helio P60, this is a processor with a great power, which works based on the 12nm architecture and has eight cores, but the layout is a bit different, since the four Cortex A73 cores and the other four remaining Cortex A53 cores are synchronized at a speed of 2.0GHz.
Now, it’s time to move on to the second point of this comparison, and it’s time to talk about the GPUs of these processors. In terms of GPU, the Helio processor has the ARM’s Mali-G52 MC2. The CPU performance might be small, but that’s not the case with the GPU section and that’s because of the large frequency difference, and that’s because the Helio G70 GPU has a frequency of 830MHz.
With that said, the P70 chipset has an improved ARM Mali-G72 MP3 GPU operating at up to 900 MHz based on a 16nm process. Also, gaming becoming a common activity on the mobile, MediaTek has used the Mali-G72 MP3 GPU inside the Helio P70 to ensure low latency as well as great gaming performance.
Having said this, for the Helio P60 MediaTek has chosen a Mali-G72 MP3 at 800MHz, which means that we will have three rendering cores at the service of the graphic section. In addition, the new chip will support LPDDR4X RAM thanks to its dual 32-bit channel.
Well, although much can be said about the power with which a processor has, we will never really know the way and efficiency with which it works until we know what score it obtained in AnTuTu and GeekBench, and that is why we will bring you the scores here of these three processors. Regarding the AnTuTu Benchmark scores, the Helio G70 has got 191731 points. In GeekBench, this processor has a single-core score of 251 points and a multi-core score of 1256 points.
On the other hand, in AnTuTu, the Helio P70 has registered a total score of 156906 points, while in GeekBench it got 1571 points for a single-core score and 5844 points for multiple+-cores. Lastly, in the AnTuTu Benchmark scores, the Helio P60 has got 121353 points, while in GeekBench, obtained a result of 1524 points in the single core and 5871 points in the multi-core
In relation to other features that these three processors can give us and our smart devices, the Helio G70 run on the Cat-7, 2xCA modem and Wifi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, and four positioned GPS + GLONASS + Beidou + Galileo. Dual Wifi antennas are also supported. Other features common are CorePilot, NeuroPilot, Pump Express, Tiny Sensor Hub, Integrated VoW, and HyperEngine Game Technology. Also, targeted as low and mid-end gaming SoCs, this processor has no APU hence no AI capabilities are found.
That said, the Helio P70 that has support for a single camera up to 32 megapixels (30 fps) or a dual camera configuration of up to 24 megapixels + 16 megapixels (90fps). Also, it is possible to record 4k videos at 30 fps. It also offers sensor AI features such as face detection and scene detection, EIS, anti-bloom engine, multi-frame noise reduction, real-time HDR recording and viewing with Zig-Zag HDR included, and much more. This processor also supports connectivity options in the LTE category Cat-7 DL and Cat-13 UL.
The Helio P60 has a mobile APU (which is a multi-core artificial intelligence processing unit), which works alongside a multi-core processor combined with intelligent control logic. Also, this processor created by MediaTek is compatible with LTE Cat. 7 and LTE Cat. 13 and, lastly, supports cameras up to 24 megapixels and 16 megapixels.
After talking about all the features that these three processors have, it was time to reach a conclusion, and decide which the best processor is. Seeing the way they work, you can see that one of these MediaTek processors, the Helio P70, works in an incredible way, based on the mechanisms and technologies that are inside. Now, this does not mean that the other two doesn’t work in a good way, only that they lack power and efficiency in some categories.
However, regardless of what we say, each person decides which processor to use, all depending on their personal tastes, so we recommend reading this article with a gram of salt.
