MediaTek 5G SoC to Feature Arm Cortex-A77 Processor & Mali-G77 GPU

It did not take long this time. Just a couple of days after Arm announced their latest Cortex-A77 CPU and Mali-G77 GPU IP blocks, MediaTek unveiled an upcoming 5G processor based on their Helio M70 modem, an unspecified number of Arm Cortex-A77 cores, a Mali-G77 GPU, all manufactured using a 7nm FinFET process.

The company did not bother finding a name for the processor nor provided details specifications before the announcement, but here’s what we know  about the first MediaTek 5G SoC:

  • CPU- Arm Cortex-A77 cores
  • GPU- Arm Mali-G77
  • NPU – APU 3.0 with support for advanced AI applications including imaging
  • Video – 4K60 video encode and decode
  • Camera – 80MP ISP
  • Cellular Connectivity – Helio M70 5G modem with peak 4.7 Gbps download using sub-6GHz bands, support for standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) 5G networks
  • Process – TSMC’s 7nm FinFET

Samples will be available in Q4 2019, and commercial devices are expected for early next year.

Mediaktek finally wants to return to having a halo product line after the failed tri-cluster designs 😀

Now they just have to get the SW support right and those products could become interesting.

Indeed, their two-cluster SoCs have been enjoying much higher acceptance.

Okay, I laughed at that. MediaTek have such horrible part naming/numbering that leaving a part unnamed is probably an improvement.
