Helio P70 with enhanced AI and upgraded CPU & GPU offers higher performance, better camera features, quicker connectivity and more efficient power consumption for a superior user experience
MediaTek launched Helio P70 system-on-chip (SoC) with enhanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) engine designed to support full-featured smartphones at affordable price.
MediaTek quoted- “The Helio P70 chipset is embedded with CPU (central processing unit) and GPU (graphics processing unit) upgrades for more powerful AI processing, and also brings upgraded imaging and camera support, a gaming performance boost and advanced connectivity features.”
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company’s (TSM) 12nm FinFET technology is used in the Helio P70 SoC to support multi-core APU operating at up to 525 MHz (megahertz) for fast and efficient edge-AI processing.
The chipset packs four Arm Cortex-A73 2.1 GHz (gigahertz) processors and four Arm Cortex-A53 2.0 GHz processors in an octa-core big.LITTLE configuration. The chipset is integrated with MediaTek’s NeuroPilot platform to support edge-AI.
The chipset has an improved Arm Mali-G72 MP3 GPU operating at up to 900 MHz, which provides a 13 per cent performance improvement compared to the Helio P60 to provide additional power boost.
MediaTek claims that Helio P70’s enhanced AI engine delivers a 10 to 30 per cent AI processing boost compared to the Helio P60.
NeuroPilot supports common AI frameworks, including TensorFlow, TF Lite, Caffe, Caffe2 and custom third party offerings.
Helio P70 comes with a 4G LTE modem and 300MBit/s (megabit per second) of download performance.
“With an enhanced AI engine that works seamlessly across the CPU and GPU, Helio P70 delivers much faster performance for AI applications and is still highly power efficient,” said TL Lee, General Manager of MediaTek’s Wireless Communication business unit.
“The introduction of Helio P70 continues MediaTek’s commitment to deliver high-end smartphone features and advanced technology for the mass market,” Lee said.
