MediaTek Announces First 7nm 5G SoC: Built on Cortex-A77 CPU and Mali-G77 GPU

By  Adeline Belluz 2019-05-30 287 0

MediaTek threw a heavy news today, the company's first 7nm SoC with integrated 5G modem. It is worth mentioning that this chip uses the latest Cortex-A77 CPU core released by ARM a few days ago, and the Mali-G77 GPU. Unfortunately, as the protagonist of this announcement, it will not meet with you very quickly, and the company did not disclose the exact SoC naming and detailed specifications.

It is known that MTK's first 5G SoC uses TSMC's 7nm process and integrates MediaTek's own Helio M70 modem.

This baseband supports 5G NR spectrum below 6GHz, carrier aggregation up to 2x, and a standalone/non-independent 5G network architecture.

It should be noted that we are unable to see millimeter wave (mmWave) applications in the early stages of 5G construction. Therefore, the strategic consideration of MTK should be a few years after the popularization of 5G.

Of course, for those who have been complaining about MediaTek's "disappointment", this time the company is able to "launch" products based on ARM's latest Cortex-A77 CPU and Mali-G77 GPU, which is a major advancement.

In addition, MediaTek will also adopt its own third-generation APU design and significantly enhance the image performance of the SoC. It is said that it now supports 4K@60fps codec and ISP with up to 80 megapixels.

Finally, we don't know much about the market positioning of this SoC. However, from the perspective of historical strategy, MediaTek is expected to exert its strength on mid-end products, and related products are expected to arrive in 2020.
