“MediaTek Helio P65’s AI performance has been improved 2X compared to the previous generation Helio chipsets”
MediaTek has announced the new Helio P65 chipset. It is based on the 12nm process technology and is also claimed to offer 25 percent faster performance than the competition. The latest chipset is equipped with a pair of ARM Cortex-A75 CPUs operating up to 2GHz and Cortex-A55 processors in a single, octa-core cluster paired with Mali-G52 2EEMC2 GPU. These are said to be interlinked and share a large L3 cache for improved performance. MediaTek also claims that the AI performance has been improved 2X compared to the previous generation Helio chipsets.
Furthermore, Helio P65 SoC is also 30 percent faster performance in AI-camera tasks such as object recognition via Google Lens, Smart Photo Album, scene detection and segmentation with background removal, and single or dual camera Bokeh shots. It also features built-in voice wake-up capabilities and is optimised for platform size and power usage. The Helio P65 also enables large, dual camera systems up to 16MP + 16MP and 48MP (4-cell) camera in addition to multiple cameras. It supports up to 2K video recording at 30fps.
The MediaTek Helio P65 includes a range of hardware accelerators including a depth engine that enables professional-grade Depth of Field (Bokeh) effects; Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS) and Rolling Shutter Compensation (RSC) technologies to capture motion or panorama shots at 240fps. The Camera Control Unit (CCU) enables Instant AE for faster-focusing exposure adjustment when environmental lighting conditions change suddenly. MediaTek Helio P65 also includes an upgraded inertial navigation engine for accurate positioning in indoors, underground or driving through tunnels. Connectivity features include dual 4G VoLTE, 802.11ac, and Bluetooth 5.0. Lastly, it also supports 4 or 8GB RAM with eMMC 5.1 storage.
