Chinese benchmark platform Master Lu has just released the list of the best mobile chipsets in terms of artificial intelligence performance for the first half of 2019.
In the first quarter of the year, the first, second and third places were respectively Qualcomm Snapdragon SoCs 855 SoC, Apple A12 and Huawei Hisilicon Kirin 980.
However, the arrival of news to the market changed the placement of Huawei’s top-of-the-line chip, giving way to the new MediaTek solution, the Helio P90, which was formalized in December 2018 :
The results reinforce that the Helio P90 chip brings excellent performance when it comes to performance in the AI environment, which even surpasses most of the solutions offered by the competition.
Of course, he still can not hit the Snapdragon 855 or the Apple A12, but having passed Kirin 980, one of the kings of Artificial Intelligence, he has just received his crown.
As you can see in the screenshot above, the rest of the list consists of other Snapdragon (middleware) chipsets, which also employ this type of technology.
In fact, it was a nice surprise to see a MediaTek processor reaching third place in IA performance; this shows that the company is moving in the right direction in relation to the development of its products.
