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.

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.
