MediaTek Helio G90, G90T Officially Announced to Help Make Gaming Phones Affordable


The mobile gaming industry has swelled exponentially over the past year, thanks to one battle royale title, witnessing a major shift in what users desire from their smartphones. This led Qualcomm to unveil their first-ever gamer-centric chipset earlier this year. Well, the American chipmaker has since also launched a souped-up variant of its Snapdragon 855 flagship chipset as well.


MediaTek has been rumored to be launching a new chipset to take on Qualcomm’s ever-growing dominance. And well, it’s doing just that with the launch of its first dedicated gamer-centric Helio G90 and G90T chipset. They’ll enable low-latency, stutter-free gameplay and better performance at lower price points.

MediaTek Helio G90 series includes octa-core chipsets, which utilize the Cortex-A76 and Cortex-A55 CPU architecture. These are paired with the Mali-G76 3EEMC4 GPU, with speeds of up to 800MHz. This is higher than even the 672MHz overclock speed of the Adreno 640 GPU in Snapdragon 855 Plus. You can include up to 10GB of LPDDR4x RAM, with peak frequency up to 2133MHz. MediaTek has also bundled a large L3 cache and is offering speeds up to 2.05GHz for smoother gameplay and app performance.

Boasting about the capabilities of the new Helio G90 chipset, TL Lee, General Manager of MediaTek’s Wireless Communication business unit in an official statement said, “With the Helio G90 series, you get a super-fast and responsive display, reduced lag for smoother gameplay – because every millisecond counts in the gaming world. Whether it’s Fortnite, PUBG or other top titles, this chip is a gaming powerhouse.”

One of the most striking features of the Helio G90 & G90T chipsets has to be MediaTek’s HyperEngine game technology. It’s a software feature which is said to ‘tune the entire smartphone for the greatest gaming experience possible.’ HyperEngine is a collection of software features that sees to the fact that the gameplay isn’t hampered in any possible way.

MediaTek Helio G90 will allow the smartphone to connect with two Wi-Fi bands (both the 2.4GHz/5GHz) for improved latency, won’t drop the data connection when you receive a call, and kick in WiFi+LTE concurrency when the network quality starts to degrade. This chipset also packs a rapid response engine to improve in-game action-to-display speeds using touch acceleration.

The HyperEngine also works to deliver optimum performance via CPU and GPU resource management, improving power consumption for longer gameplay times. Finally, it packs support for HDR10 standard with a 10-bit color depth for vivid photos on HDR-supported screens.

Moving past the hardware specs, the Helio G90 series also supports up to 64MP cameras because that’s the latest fad. Phone makers can use multi-camera configurations, with a triple-ISP design backing the hardware. This helps optimize power and performance while also offering night shot mode, AI facial unlock, and much more.

MediaTek hasn’t pointed out the difference in the Helio G90 and G90T chipset, but we’re assuming that it’s got to do with peak clock frequency. We should expect to see phones (possibly, first from Realme) powered by the Helio G90 in the next couple of months. Do tell us your opinion on this gamer-centric chipset in the comments below.



MediaTek Helio G: mobile gaming SoCs should arrive on July 30th


MediaTek's new mobile SoC family dedicated to gaming could be the protagonist of the event that the chipmaker will hold in a few days, on July 30th. The series should be called Helio G (G as Gaming, of course) and a first model has already been sighted. In fact, a teaser published a few days ago spoke of Helio G90 , without revealing any technical details. Also the new teaser, visible here on the side, has a clearly gaming matrix, which supports the theory that Helio G will be the protagonists of the event.



The niche of mobile hardware specialized in gaming is expanding: even if it was not without improved aspects ( updates in the first place ), the arrival of the first dedicated smartphones (including ASUS ROG Phone 1 and 2 , Xiaomi Black Shark 1 and 2 , Razer Phone 1 and 2 ) gave the market a shock that even the chipmakers seem to have noticed. The main advantages of some of the latest SoCs presented, such as Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus and HiSilicon Kirin 810, are found just on the GPU side. Appointment then in a few days to find out how the Helio G. family will be structured.

Apple announces acquisition of Intel's cellular modem business for a billion dollars


Earlier this week, it was reported that Apple would be acquiring Intel's smartphone modem business. Today, Apple announced the billion-dollar deal. The original report was pretty spot-on, with the deal being worth $1B and it including patents, employees, and equipment. The deal is expected to close in the fourth quarter of this year.

“This agreement enables us to focus on developing technology for the 5G network while retaining critical intellectual property and modem technology that our team has created,” said Intel CEO Bob Swan. “We have long respected Apple and we’re confident they provide the right environment for this talented team and these important assets moving forward. We’re looking forward to putting our full effort into 5G where it most closely aligns with the needs of our global customer base, including network operators, telecommunications equipment manufacturers and cloud service providers.”

With this deal, 2,200 Intel employees will join Apple, and the company says that it will now hold more than 17,000 wireless technology patents, now that it has absorbed Intel's patents.

Interestingly, Intel will still be able to make cellular modems, just not for smartphones. That means that if you buy a PC that connects to a 4G LTE network, it could have an Intel modem.

But Intel's entire cellular business has been struggling. Back in February, Intel announced that its 5G modem would be delayed until 2020. After Apple and Qualcomm settled their legal disputes, Intel said it was canceling its 5G plans altogether, just hours later. 5G PCs are coming next year, and Intel clearly won't be a part of that, so while the firm can continue to make modems for PCs, it clearly won't be a part of that next generation.

While today's deal should give Apple what it needs to get involved with 5G without relying on Qualcomm, don't expect to see it this year. After all, new iPhones will be announced in about a month and a half, and this deal won't be finalized until the fourth quarter of this year. 2020 or 2021 seems more likely for a 5G iPhone, and most customers won't have access to the technology until then anyway.

AMD responds to Nvidia with lower prices for its new Radeon GPUs


Last month at E3, AMD announced new Radeon GPUs which threatened to put a dent in some on Nvidia's RTX offerings thanks to their comparatively lower prices. In response to the impending release of AMD's cards, Nvidia decided to fight back with the new RTX Super cards earlier this week, which offer more performance for the same price, save for the RTX 2060 Super.


Now, in a nearly perfect demonstration of why competition is good, AMD has responded to the green team's new offerings by lowering the price of the new Radeon RX 5700 series of GPUs before they're even officially released. In a tweet posted earlier today, the red team announced that the Radeon RX 5700, 5700 XT, and 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition will all start at lower price points than originally expected.

As such, the Radeon RX 5700 will now start at $349, $30 below the original price. The RX 5700 XT will now cost $399 instead of $449, and the RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition will cost $449 instead of $499. That means that each of the cards now matches the prices of Nvidia's RTX 2060, 2060 Super, and 2070 Super, respectively. Here's a rundown of the specs in AMD's cards:


AMD has been gaining some popularity in both the CPU and GPU markets, thanks in no small part to the fact that its offerings usually undercut the price of Nvidia and Intel's competing products. Nvidia's response may have come as something of a surprise, but AMD isn't giving up, and ultimately, that's better for gamers, who now have more choices at more compelling price points.


NVIDIA RTX SUPER line has specs, announcement date and leaked prices


NVIDIA is always bringing new features to the global graphics marketplace with the aim of providing its loyal customers with the best experiences of use in different activities. Recently information related to the price, specifications and date of product launches of the line ' RTX SUPER ' leaked on the internet, making clear the effort of the company to further boost their equipment in this family.



This information was shared with the public through VideoCardz , which left a detailed graphical comparison of the new GPUs with the versions released a few months ago. According to the shared data, the 'SUPER' models gained potentiation ranging from 15% to 16% when compared to normal RTX.

The figures show a real effort by NVIDIA to exceed the performance delivered by the Radeon RX 5000 line from AMD, which owns the second largest chip in the video card market and is the main competitor of the US technology giant.

Still according to the leak, the boards that will receive the nomenclature 'SUPER' are the RTX 2060, 2070 and 2080, managing to cover the main markets of the company's operations. The most "basic" model is under the speculation of suffering a price increase compared to its normal model due to the implementation of more memory, now counting with 8 GB.


Already the 2070 SUPER can cost $ 100 dollars less than the common, applying a surprising discount to those expected something more expensive. However, the top model of the three to be announced is likely to receive a reconfiguration to increase the number of cores and memory, something that should be directly reflected in the price.

In the table below it is possible to have a notion of the values ​​that can be applied by NVIDIA in its new GPUs, as well as the release date and availability to the market.
