After Qualcomm, MediaTek Announces Gaming Processor Helio G90

Taiwanese leading semiconductor company MediaTek has showcased a sneak peek into the Helio G90, which is its first dedicated gaming chipset. The teaser poster is announced just after the US-based Qualcomm announced its Snapdragon 855+ processor built for gaming and virtual reality (VR). However, the teaser did not reveal much.

According to speculations, the MediaTek Helio G90 may be based on the Helio P90, which has a CPU with two Cortex-A75 cores (2.2GHz) and six A55 cores (2.0GHz).
