the cheapest gaming processor for mobile phones

Traditionally MediaTek has been considered as a manufacturer of poor quality processors, but this does not mean that the processor manufacturer has to live in those low-end models.

Processors like the G90T that we could enjoy in the Redmi Note 8 Pro or the Dimensity 1000L that will include the first cheaper 5G phones are impressive. Today we know a new chip for mid-range mobiles.

MediaTek Helio G70: power for cheap mobiles

Redmi Note 8 Pro showed us the capabilities of the Helio G90T.

MediaTek is a manufacturer that for years has had serious performance problems. The main reason used to be due to the use of low-cost technologies, such as the use of processors Of eight cores in which no core offered power, as well as low-performance graphics processors or positioning systems that were not up to par.

It seems that the company wants to clear its name in the only correct way, designing good quality processors. The G90T that included the Redmi Note 8 Pro impressed us with its great speed, and today we know the MediaTek Helio G70.

It is a chip that takes a step backwards from the G90T, but which is in the same G family, destined to mobile phones to play. It has two main Cortex A75 cores, architecture that has been the base of high-end processors. At the graphics level it is somewhat weaker, yes.

Taking into account the step in which his older brother is, it is expected that this processor is popular in mobile phones of 150-200 euros, competing at the level of processors such as the Snapdragon 665.
