MediaTek has recently launched the latest processor of its G series, the Helio G95. It is the successor of the Helio G90T processor, which the company launched back in January 2019. The company has made some minor improvements to the new Helio G95 processor. Both the processors are gaming chipsets with powerful CPU and GPU units. The Helio G95 SoC is packed on a Realme 7 smartphone, whereas its predecessor, the Helio G90T, is housed in Redmi Note 8 Pro, Realme 6, and Realme 6i. The Helio G95 processor has proved itself to be a great competitor to the recently launched Snapdragon 732G SoC. In this article, we have made a detailed comparison of the Helio G95 to the Helio G90T processor.
Helio G95 vs Helio G90T Comparison
The Helio G95 chip is fabricated with 12nm TSMC process technology. Similarly, the Helio G90T is made with the 12nm TSMC process technology. Since both the processors are made with the same manufacturing process, both will be equally efficient.
Both the processors are octa-cores, with two cores of ARM Cortex-A76 clocked at 2.05GHz, and six cores of ARM Cortex-A55 clocked at 2GHz. Though the two processors have the same CPU cores and clocked speed, the company has claimed that the Helio G95 will be 5% more efficient and powerful than the Helio G90T. Therefore, in terms of performance and gaming, the Helio G95 processor gets the point.
Both the processors are built with the ARM Mali G-76 MC4 GPU unit. The main difference lies in the maximum frequency of the two processors. The Helio G95 is tuned at a maximum frequency of 900 MHz, while the Helio G90T shows a maximum frequency of 800 MHz. Helio G95 offers an 8% better GPU than G90T in the Manhattan 3.0 benchmark test. Hence, the Helio G95 will have higher graphics rendering speed and improved graphics quality than the G90T. This could be a major difference for users to choose the G95 over the G90T.
Camera and Display
Regarding the Camera unit, the Helio G95 and Helio G90T have 24MP+16MP, 48MP, and 64MP setups. The 64MP sensor captures images at 22.5fps, the 48MP sensor captures photos at 30fps, and 24MP + 16MP captures images at 30fps. The camera sensors of both processors also support video playback in 4K 30fps, FHD 120fps, and HD 240fps. Talking about the display unit, the Helio G95 and Helio G90T have exactly similar display features. Both the chip supports Full HD+ display up to 2520 X 1080 pixels. The display refresh rate is 90Hz.
Both the Helio G95 and G90T have a Cat-12 4G LTE WorldMode modem that comes with multiple connectivity features such as 3x CA, 4×4 MIMO, and 256QAM. It also packs advanced IMS (VoLTE/ ViLTE/ VoWi-Fi), supported by over 175 cellular operators worldwide.
Regarding the AnTuTu test report, Helio G90T-powered Realme 6 has achieved around 2,91,216 points. On the other hand, Helio G95-powered Realme 7 has managed to score 3,02,716 points. So, we see that Helio G95 has over 3.9% overall performance advantage compared to its predecessor G90T.
