Before today’s conference, MediaTek released the Helio G90 series SoCs (including G90 and G90T) claiming to be specially prepared for the ultimate gaming experience.
In terms of basic specifications, the G90 series adopts octa-core design and is based on the 12nm process. It’s a Cortex A76 + A55 combination where the high core frequency is 2.05GHz. Getting into details, there are two high A76 cores and six A55 cores. The GPU has been upgraded to Mali-G76 3EEMC4, with a frequency of 800MHz. Moreover, as a mid-end SoC it supports up to 10GB LPDDR4X-2133 memory, eMMC5.1/UFS 2.1 flash memory. The ISP support up to 64MP single camera, 24MP + 16MP dual-camera, 240FPS slow-motion shooting, 4G baseband Cat.12 full Netcom (3CA, 4×4 MIMO), Bluetooth 5.0 and HDR10 technology.
In addition, G90 series AI computing performance is up to 1TMACs, carrying a screen resolution of up to 2520×1080 pixel, with HyperEngine game engine, intelligent network monitoring, dual WiFi connection, game control, dual voice wake-up command and other features. The bandbase and download rate is up to 1Gbps.
What’s the Difference Between Helio G90 and G90T?
It is reported that Helio G90 CPU is clocked at 2GHz and GPU clocked at 720MHz, up to 48 MP single camera, screen refresh rate of 60Hz. The G90T CPU is clocked at 2.05GHz, GPU frequency of 800MHz, up to 64MP single camera, screen refresh rate up to 90Hz. In short:
G90T has better CPU frequency over G90
G90T has better GPU frequency over G90
G90T supports up to 64MP camera over G90 (48MP)
G90T support better screen refresh rate than G90
Can MediaTek Helio G90 and G90T Compete with Snapdragon 730G?
Comparing MediaTek Helio G90 and G90T with Snapdragon 730 and 730G, the G90 series has a low frequency and the supported screen resolution is only 1080P. Let’s see how good will it perform once a phone features it. In the recent AnTuTu and Geekbench benchmark it has already beaten Snapdragon 730.
