On Tuesday, MediaTek has launched its new chipset, ‘MediaTek Helio G85’ in the ‘G series’. It is an upgrade to the G80 series. It is focused on mid-range smartphones for gaming and has the HyperEngine game technology to boost the mobile gaming experience.
It is based on 12 nm TSMC FinFET Technology and includes dual ARM Cortex-A75 and one Hexa Cortex-A55 CPUs with Mali – G52 2EEMC2 with speeds up to 1 GHz. The G85 lacks a dedicated APU similar to G70 and G80.
Helio G85’s HyperEngine game technology comes with Intelligent Speed Uplift for Rapid Gameplay and Resource Management Engine for Better, Longer Gameplay.
The chip can switch between networks in just 13 ms — enough for a lag-free connection — promises intelligent prediction Wi-Fi and LTE concurrency. It will also bring faster responses between cell towers and mobile phones and defer calls while in the game without dropping the data connection.
The chip is intelligent and controls CPU, GPU and memory dynamically. It offers smoother performance in heavy games, advanced scenes and intense gameplay. For even longer gameplay, it has improved power performance.
MediaTek already started shipping the SoC to smartphone manufacturers and in the sub-Rs. 15,000 price range we expect new smartphones to be available with the Helio G85.
