Yesterday, MediaTek confirmed on Weibo that the MediaTek Helio G90T SOC powers the Redmi Note 8 Pro. Now, Redmi GM, Lu Weibing, explained on Weibo how powerful the G90T actually is & how it compares other powerhouses like the Kirin 810 from Huawei & the Snapdragon 710.
In a nutshell, the Helio G90T is an octa-core SOC featuring 2x Cortex-A76 cores clocked at 2.05GHz & 6x Cortex-A55 cores. It is worth mentioning that Cortex-A76 is something we see on flagship chipsets like the Kirin 980 & the Kirin 810. The Helio G90T is a 12nm SOC that is made especially for mid-range phones to get amazing gaming experience. There is an ARM Mali-G76 3EEMC4 GPU clocked at 800MHz.
Lu Weibing shared the AnTuTu benchmark v8 scores of the Helio G90T & other comparable chipsets & as we can see, the Redmi Note 8 with MediaTek Helio G90T scores 283,333 on AntuTu v8 while the score is 214,729 in case of Snapdragon 710. The Kirin 810 is a very powerful SOC as we know already & hence, it scores around 301,419. It is the only 7nm chipset among the three.
Now, it is worth mentioning that Lu Weibing didn’t mention if the regular Note 8 has a MediaTek SOC as well. But, MediaTek revealed that the Note 8 “Series” is powered by the Helio G90T SOC so maybe the regular Note 8 gets the G90.
