MediaTek announced a mobile chip Helio P65 (2 photos)

The new Helio P65 processor, developed by MediaTek, will significantly increase the power of mobile gadgets. The beginner has 8 cores, of which 2 Cortex-A75 cores with up to 2.0 GHz and 6 Cortex-A55 cores with up to 1.5 GHz. The use of the Cortex-A75 is a significant improvement over the previously used Cortex-A73 cores in the Helio P60 / P70. The performance assessment of the new chipsets is ambiguous compared to the previous series. On the one hand, old processors had 4 high-performance cores, and Helio P65 has only 2 high-performance cores. However, on the other hand, the Helio P65 uses an 820 MHz ARM Mali-G52 graphics processor similar to that used in the Kirin 810. It supports display formats up to 2520 × 1080 pixels and hardware decoding of a 2K video stream at 30 fps using H.265 (HEVC) and VP9. In addition, the chipset is compatible with up to 8 GB LPDDR3 and LPDDR4x RAM and eMMC 5.1 flash drives. MediaTek Helio P65 is capable of supporting the operation of two 16-megapixel cameras or one at 48 megapixels. From the functional there is an analysis of the depth of field when shooting with bokeh effect and electronic frame stabilization (EIS). The processor is available face recognition technology, compensation for the effect of jelly during video recording and fast charging Pump Express. It is stated that the processing of images and clips is 30% faster than their predecessors. Other features include support for satellite navigation systems GPS, GLONASS, Beidou and Galileo, fourth-generation mobile communications Dual 4G VoLTE, wireless Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11a / b / g / n / ac, FM-radio. Using MediaTek Helio P65 in mid-range smartphones imposes a limitation on some technologies. The processor does not support Wi-Fi 6, UFS storage, and cannot record 4K video. The developers are announcing a twofold increase in processor performance compared to the base MediaTek chips. However, during the presentation it was not said whether an artificial intelligence processor (APU) will be installed in the new chips. The first gadgets with a MediaTek Helio P65 processor should be announced in the third quarter of this year.
