According to MediaTek, the new octa-core Genio 700 is designed for smart home, smart retail, and industrial IoT products. It will complete the Genio family, between the flagship Genio 1200 focused on high performance, and the Genio 500, a 12 nm architecture designed for edge processing and multimedia capabilities.
Designed with power efficiency in mind, the Genio 700 is a 6nm chipset equipped with two ARM A78 performance cores clocked at 2.2GHz and six ARM A55 efficient cores running at 2.0GHz. It delivers 4.0 TOPs AI accelerator. By comparison, the performance-oriented Genio 1200 features four ARM A78 cores (2.2GHz) and four ARM A55 cores (2.0GHz).
The new SoC offers Dual Display support FHD60+4K60 with AV1, VP9, H.265 and H.264 (video decode) support. The ISP allows for camera support, however, MediaTek did not share the specifications of the camera it will support.
The Genio 700 SDK will allows developers to create and customize industrial and smart home products running on Yocto Linux, Ubuntu, and Android.
Additional features include:
- Supports high-speed interfaces, including PCIe 2.0, USB 3.2 Gen1 and MIPI-CSI interface for camera
- Support for industrial grade design and wide temp with 10 years longevity
- ARM SystemReady certification for providing a standard and easy way to integrate the platform
- ARM PSA certification for increased security
