MediaTek Helio G35 and G25 chipsets unveiled for gaming on a budget
Adding on to its list of gaming-focused Helio G series chipsets, Taiwanese chipmaker MediaTek has now unveiled the budget-friendly Helio G35 and Helio G25. The new budget chips come just a month after the company unveiled the mid-range Helio G85, which is an octa-core processor that’s built on a 12nm process. Much like the Helio G85, both the Helio G25 and Helio G35 are fabricated on a 12nm manufacturing process.
Out of the two new chips, the entry-level MediaTek Helio G25 features 8x ARM Cortex A-53 CPU cores clocked at 2.0GHz and an Imagination PowerVR GE8320 GPU clocked at up to 650MHz. The G25 is capable of running displays at 1600×720 resolution at 60Hz. On the other hand, the MediaTek Helio G35 features 8x ARM Cortex A-53 CPU cores clocked at 2.3GHz, and an Imagination PowerVR GE8320 GPU clocked at up to 680MHz. The G35 is capable of running displays at 2400×1080 resolution at 60Hz.
In the camera department, the Helio G25 supports dual 13MP+8MP cameras or a single 21MP camera with Zero Shutter Lag, while the G35 supports dual 13MP+13MP cameras or a single 25MP camera with Zero Shutter Lag. Both the Helio G25 and Helio G35 support MediaTek’s HyperEngine technology, which boasts of dynamic allocation of CPU, GPU, and memory while factoring in power, thermal, and gameplay requirements, to offer smooth gaming performance on budget devices, enhance power efficiency and facilitate low-latency connections. The new chipsets support up to 6GB LPDDR4x RAM at 1600MHz frequency, eMMC 5.1 storage, Dual 4G VoLTE, LTE Cat. 7 DL/Cat.13 UL, Wi-Fi 5 (b/g/n/ac), and Bluetooth 5.0.
