Get to know the MariSilicon X NPU which will soon debut on the Oppo Reno8

Suara.com – Series Oppo Reno8 sure to go to Indonesia soon. Although the specifications have not been revealed, this phone will carry a Neural Processing Unit (NPU) MariSilicon X.

Please note, the MariSilicon X NPU first debuted in the series Oppo Find X5, which is also present in Indonesia through the Oppo Find X5 Pro. Now the NPU is also present in the mid-range segment through the Oppo Reno8.

“The MariSilicon X NPU will soon debut in the Oppo Reno8 series,” said Oppo Indonesia PR Manager, Aryo Meidianto, at a press conference in Jakarta, Tuesday (26/7/2022).

Aryo explained that the MariSilicon X NPU was created to provide increased smartphone imaging capabilities, both for photos and videos.

Although this chip is separate from system-on-chip (SoC) such as those made by Qualcomm and MediaTek, Aryo claims that MariSilicon X also focuses on optimizing power management and artificial intelligence computing workloads.

“MariSilicon X is a solution to the gap in power consumption, processing power, and customized imaging results and quality through computational photography through artificial intelligence (AI) presented by chipset manufacturers,” said Aryo.

He continued, the NPU is basically an inseparable part of the Central Processing Unit (CPU) and also the Graphic Processing Unit (GPU). This unit is commonly referred to as a System-on-a-Chip (SoC).

To support the performance of a SoC, the chipset developers will add a shared DDR Bandwidth memory. The shared DDR Bandwidth system can actually make the image processing process last much longer and of course wasteful of power, memory will work for all three parts of the SoC.

“With the presence of MariSilicon X on OPPO smartphone devices, imaging processing can take place much faster. This is because of the Dedicated Extra DDR Bandwidth with data transmission speeds of up to 8.5 Gbps which is made exclusively for the MariSilicon X chipset,” he said.

Furthermore, MariSilicon X can also provide the best photo quality on smartphones with Ultra High Dynamic Range support through a contrast ratio of 1,000,000: 1 or four times the dynamic range produced by the OPPO Find X3 Pro device.
