MediaTek today announced the Helio P90, a system-on-a-chip that delivers improvements to artificial intelligence performance and media capture. The P90 is an octa-core chip with two ARM A75 cores at 2.2 GHz and six A55 cores at 2.0 GHz. MediaTek paired the processor cores with the Imagination Technologies PowerVR GM 9446 GPU. The company says its new CorePilot technology doles out tasks so each is handled with the proper balance of performance and efficiency across the eight cores. The P90 adopts MediaTek's new APU 2.0, which can muster four times the AI performance of the Helio P60 and P70. MediaTek says this APU is able to provide more accurate results while conserving power. All this leads to better AI-based experiences, such as human pose and movement tracking, Google Lens, facial recognition, augmented reality, as well as real-time enhancements while using the camera or video camera. The chip supports a number of camera configurations, including a single 48-megapixel sensor or paired 24-/16-megapixel sensors. Cameras supported by the P90 will be able to snag HD super slow-motion video at 480fps. The P90 packs triple image signal processors (ISP) capable of capturing 14-bit RAW images. The ISP has its own AI engine for face/scene detection in low light. On the connectivity front, the P90 can handle dual SIM devices with Cat 12 LTE. It includes 4x4 MIMO and 256QAM for better data throughput, as well as 2x2 WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0. MediaTek expects to see the chip in consumer devices by the end of the first quarter of 2019.
