MediaTek has launched its new chipset – MTK i700 which is a new AI IoT-focused chipset. This chipset is the successor of i500 and is more powerful than its predecessor even by smartphone standards. The chipset may be deployed in Smart Displays, high-end security cameras and other power demanding applications.
As for the architecture, the MediaTek i700 features an Octa-core CPU with two Cortex-A75 cores and two Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.2GHz and 2.0GHz respectively. The chipset also features an IMG PowerVR GM 9446 GPU clocked at 970MHz. The chipset work with up to 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM at 1866MHz.
Apart from this, the MTK i700 features a dual-core NPU, which speeds up face detection five times compared to the i500. The chipset supports the Android Neural Networks API, as well as the most popular deep learning frameworks.
Furthermore, this chipset can be paired with a single 32MP camera or a dual 24MP+16MP setup. In the latter configuration, it can make use of its built-in depth-sensing engine and distance estimation. Pose estimation and motion tracking are available for fitness and AR applications. Running the camera at 120fps allows the chipset to track fast-moving objects.
Further, the chip supports Wi-Fi 5 (2×2 802.11ac) and Bluetooth 5.0 for local connections. It also has a Cat. 12 LTE modem for mobile applications. As for its applicability, MediaTek says the chipset will be useful in access control for smart buildings, facial recognition for payment authentication, fitness and entertainment devices and even some autonomous vehicles in factories and warehouses.
As for its availability, this chipset will start being available on products from next year.
