MediaTek Helio G90/G90T

Octa-core CPU boosts speeds up to 2.05GHz using a mix of the latest Arm Cortex-A76 and Cortex-A55 in combination with a large L3 cache

A major highlight of the new chipsets is the HyperEngine game technology which brings support for an array of functions that should improve the overall gameplay experience. Chief among them is a networking engine which can automatically combine WiFi and LTE connectivity to boost signal strength.

MediaTek has not just built a powerful chip, but a complete platform of hardware and software enhancements that excels at smartphone gaming.
The upgraded octa-core CPU uses the latest Arm Cortex-A76 and Cortex-A55 processors in combination with a large L3 cache, which pushes the G90 series multi-threaded performance up to 9%1 beyond direct competitors. The latest Arm G76 3EEMC4 GPU can play Fortnight and PUBG incredibly smoothly, blazing through Manhattan benchmark up to 26%1 faster versus direct competitors.
Beyond gaming, the G90 series is the first to enable up to 64MP1 4-cell sensor cameras that can capture incredibly detailed photos or using quad-pixel technology provides the best low-light performance ever. Multi-camera framework allows brands to integrate a variety of lens and sensor options for vast product differentiation potential. It’s incredibly fast AI processor (APU), which combined with its premium CPU and GPU, powers up to 1TMACs1 AI performance; ideal for AI-camera applications, OS enhancements, exciting apps and much more. 
Fully integrated into its design for power and costoptimization, the G90 series can listen for multiple wakeup words1 that trigger virtual assistants such as Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa or other localized services.

Connectivity includes a Cat-12 4G LTE WorldMode modem with 3x CA and 4x4 MIMO and 256QAM, plus DSDS (dual SIM) for essential dual 4G VoLTE and 4G data that provides the best user experience. Advanced cellular features such as IMS (VoLTE\ViLTE\VoWi-Fi), is now supported by over 175 cellular operators worldwide, and other standards include global eMBMS, HPUE and Band 71 support in North America

Another headline is the dual WiFi connectivity support allowing a single device to connect simultaneously to two routers for a more reliable connection and decreased latency. HDR10 support and display touch acceleration are also present to add to the fluid in-game experience.
MediaTek is clearly aiming to gain traction in the growing gaming smartphone industry with more affordable offerings compared to rivals Qualcomm. The company hinted that the new G90 series SoC will make its debut on a Xiaomi device in India soon.
