We need competition in the mobile SoC space, and that competition could very well be MediaTek and its Dimensity line of chips.
MediaTek aims to bring 5G to the masses with its new Dimensity 720 chipset. It is built on a 7nm process and supports global sub-6GHz 5G networks.
MediaTek's latest gaming-focused chipset for budget phones has a 1GHz ARM Mali-G52 GPU and comes with HyperEngine Game technology enhancements to deliver a better gaming experience.
Google is working on its own chip so it has a handy back-up plan. What better reason to go for it and try MediaTek?
Gaming the system when it comes to benchmarks is nothing new. Seeing the actual chipmaker do it though means things have gone too far.
Android devices from Amazon, Nokia, LG and more are affected and need the March 2020 security patch or a fix from the device-maker itself.
MediaTek's "new" Helio P95 chipset is an insignificant upgrade over the Helio P90 that the Taiwanese chipmaker introduced in late 2018.
