Recently MediaTek launched a new chipset known as the Helio G95 that is specifically focused on gaming. It’s a budget game-centric chipset with 8% better GPU performance than the previous G90T which makes the G95 superior. It’s a mid-range processor that has almost all the features of G90T but with a small change in GPU. The company claims that it is the most powerful 4G chipset for smartphones. Until now, there are a few smartphones that come with the new Helio G95. We will talk about that later but first, let’s look at the amazing features of the G95 chipset.
MediaTek Helio G95 SoC Features
The Helio G95 is the new offering from the Taiwan company which is built on 12nm process technology by TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company). It is an Octa-core processor with two ARM Cortex-A76 cores with a clock speed up to 2.05GHz and six pieces of Cortex-A55 operating up to 2GHz.
For the memory part, it can support up to 2x LPDDR4x which is clocked up to 2133MHz and it has a RAM size capacity of up to 10GB. The internal storage is paired with eMMC 5.1 and UFS 2.1.
The chipset supports ARM Mali G76 3EEMC4 which is an overclocked version of the GPU from the G90T. Helio G95 has a GPU clock speed of 900MHz while the G90T has a clock speed of 800MHz. Since there is a slight performance difference theoretically so the G95 has 5% more CPU benchmarks (Antutu) and up to 8% more GPU benchmarks (Manhattan 3.0) compared to the G90T benchmarks.
For the cameras, the G95 can support up to 64MP multi-camera setup with the option to record 4K videos @ 30fps. The CPU is capable to handle a Full HD+ display with a refresh rate of 90Hz. From the connectivity point of view, it supports Dual 4G VoLTE, ViLTE, VoWifi, and also supports Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, Glonass, Beidou, Galileo as well as FM radio.
Moreover, the chipset comes with HyperEngine gaming technology which has the feature of networking, rapid response, picture quality, and resource management engines for seamless gameplay and a highly responsive user experience. According to the company, the technology will provide better connectivity by enabling both WiFi and 4G LTE together which in turn will provide lag-free smooth gameplay.
