1.7Ghz 8-core Mediatek MT6592 scores 29,600 on Antutu

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 SoC might have finally met its match in the form of the octa-core Mediatek MT6592.

Mediatek has been cropping up in headlines concerning their next generation processors for the past few days, but this latests news/leak is by far the most exciting we have seen so far!

The image above comes from an internal Mediatek slide show where which claims that the new MT6592 is capable of reaching Antutu scores of 29,600! That’s edging in to Snapdragon 800 territory! What we find even more interesting (and exciting) though is the fact the benchmarks were taken from a 1.7Ghz CPU and the MT6592 is capable of running at a full 2Ghz!

Mediatek will launch the MT6592 8-core processor along with a few other new chips later this year. For more Mediatek details take a look at the 2013-14 Mediatek roadmap here.
