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.

Huawei, Kirin top range with integrated 5G modem later this year | Rumor

Huawei could present two top-of-the-line SoCs by the end of the year: in addition to the already planned Kirin 985 , whose debut should take place with the launch of Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro , a chip with an integrated 5G modem would be coming ; it would be the first on the market, given that so far all processors with support for 5G networks rely on external modems mounted on the motherboard. For example, staying at Huawei, the Mate 20 X uses a normal Kirin 980 with integrated 4G modem, while 5G connectivity is guaranteed by the "external" Balong 5000 modem .

The solution of the external modem is naturally temporary for everyone. It allowed the arrival of 5G more quickly, but it has important negative aspects to take into account, including greater consumption and more space occupied on the motherboard - and in a smartphone every square millimeter is precious.

The indiscretion, which comes from the respected Japanese financial newspaper Nikkei , does not dwell on the possible technical details of the new SoC. We do not know if Huawei will be able to keep the Kirin 985 features unchanged and simply include a 5G modem instead of the 4G one, or it will have to compromise. Also for this chip, however, the debut should take place on a Mate, specifically the 5G variant of the 30 , whose presentation is scheduled for December .


Lenovo signs dual-screen foldable device patent

Lenovo was the first major manufacturer to introduce the world to a folding notebook with Windows . So it's no wonder that the company has been recording a number of curious patents involving this type of device.

This week, the Chinese giant has requested another record for a "two-screen electronic device with display control method." According to the documentation available, when using two displays , the device can gain some extra features.

The images that were attached to the patent application also confirm that this device keeps a certain resemblance to the ZTE Axon M . For those who do not remember, the Chinese smartphone was the first in the world to have two screens .

Documents from the United States Patent Office also provide a brief description of Lenovo . Check out:

The apparatus includes: a first display screen with a physical edge; a second display screen with a second physical edge; and a processor, configured to control the display of the first display screen and the second display screen. One mode of use: the first display screen is user-friendly, while the second display is positioned on the backside of the first display.

In general terms, this device is practically the same as ZTE Axon M , and the biggest differences can be the size of the displays and the operating system.

It is worth remembering that simply registering a patent does not always indicate that the manufacturer is actually planning to launch a product on the market. Therefore, we emphasize that in many cases, these ideas end up being "shelved" .


Qualcomm announces Snapdragon 855 Plus with 15% faster graphics and even more powerful CPU

Qualcomm has just officialized its latest mobile processor, which comes as a slightly turbinated version of Snapgradon 855, chipset presented at the end of last year by the manufacturer.

The Snapdragon 855 Plus, the new platform brings improvements in graphics rendering speed, performance and also 5G performance, with the first device to be shipped with it being the upcoming ASUS ROG Phone II.

Qualcomm's newest technology delivers 15% more GPU and higher CPU clock speeds, with the frequency at 2.96 GHz - the original model was at 2.84GHz.

The new SoC is designed for gamer smartphones and will also offer, of course, high-speed 5G connectivity (X50 modem) and features like artificial intelligence and virtual reality. It also comes equipped with the X24 LTE modem for 4G connectivity.

The first models to bring the Snapdrgaon 855 Plus will hit the market by the end of the year. According to Kedar Kondap, vice president of product management at Qualcomm:

The Snapdragon 855 Plus will elevate the concept for smartphone gamers with improved CPU and GPU performance.

ASUS will kick off the adoption of the new platform in its ROG Phone II, which also features an AMOLED 90Hz screen and a feature called AirTriggers, which are touch-sensitive corners that can be used as extra buttons in games .

The arrival of the new processor aims to "warm up" the market for mobile devices that, in recent years, is still a bit of news.

As users increasingly take time to upgrade their smartphones, components with even better processing power and performance may actually be something to appeal to consumers, especially the niche that is a fan of games.

It is worth mentioning that Qualcomm also introduced a few days ago an input processor , the 215 that, interestingly, came to market without the Snapdragon brand.


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.
