MediaTek HyperEngine technology is optimized from four aspects: network optimization, control optimization, image quality optimization, and load regulation. The Helio G90T is the world’s first chip to receive the TÜV Rhein mobile game experience certification, supporting 90Hz screen refresh rate.

The MediaTek Helio G90T consists of two ARM Cortex-A76 and six Cortex-A55 cores. It integrates ARM Mali–G76 MC4 GPU, clocked at up to 800MHz, and built-in dual-core APU. The combined CPU and GPU can provide 1TMACs AI computing power, and support 10GB LPDDR4x memory, frequency up to 2133MHz.

You may think this is a top-level mobile chip, but MediaTek has designed it to compete with the Snapdragon 730. Thus, this is a classic mid-range SoC. Moreover, though its biggest highlight is the improved gaming experience, the Helio G90 series chips are not going to appear on gaming smartphones. For this purpose, the manufacturer should use flagship chips such as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus.

Just look at the current gaming smartphones. They all are high-end models sporting the best configuration. Even though the Helio G90 and G90T are considered to provide better gaming experience, they won’t be able to compete with the high-class chips.

In addition to the new product announcement, the company also showed the running points of the MediaTek Helio G90T at Geekbench and AnTuTu. In the former benchmark, it scores 2579 points, while in AnTuTu, the chip got 222,923points. This data is at a medium to an upper level.
