MediaTek Helio P60 Launched At MWC 2018
MediaTek launched the MediaTek Helio P60 chipset at MWC 2018. The is the most powerful P series chipset from the Chinese chipset manufacturer, which is based on 12nm FinFET architecture. This is the first processor from the brand with native features like hardware accelerated AI and a dedicated NeuroPilot Core.
The processor is manufactured by TSMC based on 12 nm FinFET technology based on big.LITTLE architecture. The four high-performance cores are based on ARM Cortex-A73 cores and the other four efficient cores are based on ARM Cortex-A53 cores. Compared to the Helio P30 chipset, the Helio P60 offers up to 70% improved CPU performance.
The same goes for the GPU as well. The Mali-G72 MP3 is a flagship-class CPU, which is used in the chipsets like Kirin 970. The chipset offers a staggering 70% boost in overall GPU performance compared to its predecessor. In fact, the performance will be similar to Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset.
The dedicated NeuroPilot can handle native AI tasks using Android Neural Networks API with class-leading performance. The three image sensing processors support dual camera module. In fact, this uses 16% less power by combining Ai accelerators with the real-time image enhancement.
The MediaTek Helio P60 chipset supports displays with up to 1080p resolution. In fact, the smartphone manufacturers can go with a display with up to 20:9 aspect ratio. In terms of storage and RAM, the chipset can handle up to 8GB LPDDR4x RAM. The chipset can handle UFS 2.1 storage.
Finally, coming to the connectivity the processor can handle dual LTE and VoLte network with Cat 7 download speeds and Cat 13 upload speeds.
