Chipset manufacturer MediaTek launched its newest mid-range gaming chipset today (September 1). The new processor is dubbed MediaTek Helio G95 and is an upgrade to the MediaTek Helio G90T, known for its performance.
Even if the newly launched chipset doesn’t bring many changes, it has the same cores as the G90T – compared to its predecessor, we should expect some significant improvements. Here is what you need to know.
MediaTek Helio G95 Specs and Features
The MediaTek Helio G95 comes with six high-efficiency Cortex-A55 cores and two high-performance Cortex-A76 CPUs running at 2.05GHz. The chipset uses the same GPU as its predecessor, the ATM Mali-G76 MC4, but it has overclocked the GPU with a frequency of 900MHz this time around.
The chipset manufacturer claims that the improvement of frequency will allow the G95 to get a 5 % boost in AnTuTu benchmark scores, and an 8 % in Manhattan 3.0.
And of course, being a gaming centered processor, the MediaTek Helio G95 comes with some sleek gaming-focused features, as well. The MediaTek HyperEngine tech, for instance, provides features such as the ability to connect your handset to two routers simultaneously for a lower ping. Also, if you receive a call mid-game, your connection won’t be lost.
The newly launched chipset offers a 60 % shorter GPU rendering, too, to display latency, and limits the lags when playing intensive games.
The best part, however, is how the MediaTek Helio G95 smartly allocates CPU, memory resources, and GPU to offer the greatest gaming experience while maintaining power performance.
Coming to the camera capabilities, the MediaTek Helio G95 supports up to 64MP camera, slow-motion videos at 240fps with HEVC encoding for smaller file sizes, and dual 24+16MP camera setups, as well.
Finally, the processor can support a feature dubbed dual wake words. Such a thing means that the MediaTek Helio G95 can listen for two wake-up words simultaneously. Users can say “Hey Google” and “Alexa” at the same time to launch their virtual assistants.
We should expect the smartphone companies to start using the MediaTek Helio G95 chipset in the near feature.
