MediaTek Powers the Future of Mobile with New Helio P60 Chipset
The MediaTek Helio P60 features four Arm Cortex-A73 2.0 GHz processors and four Arm Cortex-A53 2.0 GHz processors in an octa-core big.LITTLE configuration. The SoC is fabricated on the TSMC 12nm production process and is MediaTek’s most power efficient Helio P series SoC yet. Compared to the previous generation Helio P series, Helio P23, the MediaTek Helio P60 is up to 12 percent more efficient overall and up to 25 percent more power efficient in highly demanding games, so consumers can play longer on their device. Managed by MediaTek’s CorePilot 4.0 technology, with thermal management, user experience monitoring and Energy Aware Scheduling (EAS), the chipset optimizes processor performance and power conservation for a sustainable user experience even across the most compute-intensive tasks.
MediaTek Helio P60 brings MeidaTek’s NeuroPilot AI technology to the heart of your smartphone. Its AI-compute architecture works seamlessly across CPU, GPU and Mobile APU within the SoC to maximize performance and energy efficiency. With double the power efficiency of a GPU solution, MediaTek Helio P60’s multi-core APU provides superb power efficiency and class-leading performance of 280GMAC/s.
The MediaTek’s NeuroPilot SDK in P60 is compatible with Google Android Neural Networks API (Android NNAPI), and also supports common AI frameworks, including TensorFlow, TF Lite, Caffe, and Caffe2. That makes it easy for developers to quickly bring-to-market innovative AI applications. As a partner of the Open Neural Network Exchange (ONNX), MediaTek is working on bringing ONNX support to the chipset in Q2 2018 to provide developers with even more flexibility for designing AI-powered applications.
