MediaTek's Helio P70 coming soon with more advanced AI hardware, insiders claim
The Helio P70 will be very similar to the P60 – it will be built on the same 12nm process and will feature an octa-core processor (four A73 and four A53) plus a Mali-G72 GPU. Details like CPU clock speed or GPU core count are not known yet, but that’s not the key upgrade.
The P60 was billed as MediaTek’s AI-focused chipset with an “AI processing unit” (APU). The P70 will use a Neural Processing Unit (NPU), which will offer higher performance.
It’s not clear if the name change indicates a change in architecture or just core count (the APU was a dual core unit). Either way, this is MediaTek’s answer to the Snapdragon 710.
In related news, MediaTek will soon be starting mass producing ASIC (application-specific integrated circuits) on a 7nm process. These will reportedly be supplied to “the world’s two leading gaming console makers” (take your pick from Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft).
Mediatek Helio P70 will be a tough competition to Snapdragon's latest chipset!
