The MediaTek Helio G96 is known as the best SoC of the Helio G Series. The Helio G Series was referred to by MediaTek as a gaming-class for mid-range. So, this is expected to provide a relatively high gaming experience in its class. Gaming Test Mediatek Helio G96 Redmi Note 11 Pro 4

Well, at the end of 2021, MediaTek upgraded the Helio G Series with three new SoCs. One of which is the Helio G96. We have reviewed smartphones with this Helio G96 several times. We are satisfied with the gaming performance.

Helio G96. When we first tried this SoC, we were quite surprised by the benchmark score. In benchmarks, this SoC does not score as high as its predecessor, the Helio G95.

But that’s just a benchmark score. It’s not necessarily a higher benchmark score, it means it’s definitely faster in everyday use and also in games. Helio G96

When I tried to play the game, the Helio G96 could offer a better gaming experience than the Helio G95. So, it’s only natural that MediaTek as the best SoC in the Helio G Series family. So, before looking at the performance offered by the Helio G96 in the games.

Specifications of Helio G96

This SoC carries a CPU with the exact same configuration as the Helio G90T and Helio G95. Two SoCs that had previously been the fastest of the Helio G Series. There are 2x Cortex A76 2.05 GHz and 6x Cortex A55 2.0 GHz in the CPU. This configuration is fairly common in the middle class.

Turning to the GPU, this SoC uses the Mali-G57 MC2. Well, this is different from its predecessors, Helio G90T and Helio G95, which use the Mali-G76 MC4. At first glance, this looks like a “downgrade”. Mali-G7X Series GPUs are commonly used in flagship class SoCs. Meanwhile, the Mali-G5X Series used to be widely used by affordable middle-class SoCs.

However, if you look closely, the Mali-G57 already uses a new architecture, with the Valhall code, which of course carries an improvement from the “Bifrost” used by the Mali-G76.

The GPU used by MediaTek as their premium-class SoC motor in 2020 and 2021. So it’s answered, even though it’s “like a downgrade”, the GPU actually gets an upgrade.

RAM and storage support offered by this SoC is LPDDR4X 2133 MHz for RAM and UFS 2.2 for storage. This is already qualified in its class.

Then, this Helio G96 supports a Full HD + screen with a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. For cameras, the ISP in this SoC supports cameras up to 108 MP. Two cameras simultaneously, it can be 16 MP + 16 MP. Connectivity, of course, is still 4G. There is also support for Wi-Fi 5 1T1R and Bluetooth 5.2 in this SoC.

MediaTek also offers MediaTek HyperEngine 2.0 on the Helio G96. This is a set of optimizations for system performance efficiency with Intelligent Resource Management Engine. There’s also a Networking Engine in MediaTek HyperEngine 2.0 to ensure connections to optimal Wi-Fi or cellular networks. This is reducing in-game lag caused by network connections.


Well, as we mentioned earlier, the smartphone we use is the Redmi Note 11 Pro (4G). This is one of the newest smartphones with the Helio G96 SoC inside. The smartphone that we use has 8 GB LPDDR4X RAM, with 128 GB of internal storage.
