MediaTek unveils Helio P70: a faster version of the P60
MediaTek is following up on its AI-centric P60 chipset with a new more polished platform. The Helio P70 promises a 10-30% boost in AI tasks and a 13% improvement on general tasks. That said, things haven’t changed that much from the P60.
The new chipset is built on the same 12nm process, but it runs both its CPU and its GPU at higher clock speeds. On the processor side, the four big cores, Cortex-A73, now run at 2.1GHz. Meanwhile, the Mali-G72 MP3 GPU is now clocked at 900MHz. There’s a table below with more details.
The Helio P70 claims to use up to 35% less power in popular games compared to the P60, despite the bump in performance. Energy Aware Scheduling+ is a thermal management solution that promises to lower operating temperature by up to 4.5°C (the P60 had the non-plus version of this tech).
The chipset has hardware to do the heavy lifting when it comes to camera effects. Bokeh is rendered at 24fps, a 3x improvement in performance. It has a hardware warping engine for low-power electronic image stabilization (MediaTek says it saves 23mA per second vs. doing it on the GPU).
The P70 has triple ISPs that can handle a 24+16MP dual camera or a single 32MP camera. supports up to 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM (1,800MHz). It can use UFS 2.1 or eMMC 5.1 storage. The built-in modem supports two SIMs, VoLTE and Band 71 (600MHz), which is popular in the US.

This was a very cool upgrade from P60 as it made gaming experience so much better! Now P90 is in the market and it will change the whole thing!
