MediaTek has been producing mobile processors for over 15 years and over the years has produced various different chipsets. It now has its latest entry called MediaTek Helio G85. The company is now available.
The processor is built with a game in mind as part of the G series. In Redmi Note 9 revealed on Thursday, the processor made his debut. In addition, the company announced the use of an AV1 video codec on a MediaTek Dimension 1000 5 G SoC to allow YouTube video streams.
According to Xiaomi, the MediaTek Helio G85 is “designed for everyday sports” during the Redmi Note 9 launch ceremony. The 2 + 6 core structure includes two Cortex-A75 cores, up to 2.0 GHz, and six Cortex-A55 cores.
The Cortex-A55 cores have not yet been clocked at their speeds. According to the Redmi Note 9 specifications, the integrated Mali G52 GPU is clocked at 1000MHz. During the phone launch, Xiaomi posted also a range of benchmarks against Snapdragon 665 and Exynos 9611 with the Helio G85 score.
It should also be remembered that the difference between the modern Helio G85 and the more ancient Helio G80 on the arm Mali G52 GPU has an extra 50MHz. Both Helio G85 and Helio G80 are key in their Processor configuration.
In addition, MediaTek announced that the new AV1 video codec on the MediaTek Dimension 1,000 5 G soC would allow YouTube video streams. With the AV1 coding, the processor offers users exceptional visual quality and smoother video experiences by using fewer resources, says the firm.
In a time when the media use on the phone is high, the application is very helpful as the consumers consume less power for the same amount of video sharing. Furthermore, the video decoder allows AV1 hardware playback of video streams up to a resolution of 4 K at 60 fps.
“MediaTek is engaged in consistently upgrading its offerings to enhance user experience, and AV1 technology is a prime example,” said Dr. Yenchi Lee, Assistant General Manager of MediaTek’s Wireless Business Unit in a statement. “Video is now the most used form of communication, with 70 percent of Millennials and Gen Z reportedly using streaming services.”
The company’s announcement also states that the AV1 codec is an incredibly high speed, 30% better compressor output video codec than the latest VP9 format.
