MediaTek launches entry-level Helio gaming chipsets

New Delhi: Taiwanese fabless semiconductor company MediaTek on Tuesday launched Helio G25 and G35 as its latest entry-level gaming chipsets for smartphones.

Both chips are powered by Arm Cortex-A53 CPUs and aims to provide fast-gaming experiences.

The chips feature IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPUs, with speed up to 650MHz and up to 680 MHz for the MediaTek Helio G25 and G35, respectively, the company said in a statement.

Both Helio G25 and G35 have optimal power efficiency due to an advanced 12nm FinFET production process which, combined with MediaTek HyperEngine's intelligent power management, ensures long battery-life and power efficiency, even during long gaming sessions.

The chips feature an enhanced MediaTek HyperEngine, for intelligent resource management that ensures sustained and smooth performance, even in demanding action.

When theWi-Fi signal is weak, the technology intelligently triggers Wi-Fi and LTE concurrency within milliseconds, to ensure a lag-free connection.

MediaTek HyperEngine also lets users defer calls, while in a game, so you never drop a connection or have to stop your game-play.

In terms of cameras, both the chipsets support multi-camera setup and include a hardware depth engine for dual-camera bokeh photography.

The G25 supports a single camera mode of up to 21MP at 30fps, while the G35 supports up to 25MP cameras and AI-enhanced camera features including simulated bokeh effects.
