Mediatek MT6595 benchmarks spotted on GFX Bench

Mediatek’s new MT6595 octacore processor has shown up in the popular graphics benchmarks database GFX Bench.

The Mediatek MT6595 processor is a large step in the right direction for Mediatek processor. The chip is an 8-core SoS similar to the current MT6592, but will be based on Cortex A7 and Cortex A17 cores running in a big,LITTLE set up. big.LITTLE is also what Samsung use in their Exynos processors and means that the 8-cores will switch from the A7 to A17 depending on the task the SoC is required to perform.

We also understand from leaked road maps that the MT6595 will be one of the first Mediatek processors to have support for 4G LTE networks.

Anyway, back to what GFX Bench tells us about the processor. According to the database, the MT6595 is being tested in a phone with 4.6-inch 1080 display, 2GB RAM, 16GB memory, 12 mega-pixel main camera and 7 mega-pixel front. The chips is shown to offer the following features:

  • 4K video recording.
  • 1.9Ghz speed (1898mhz)
  • Supports OpenGL ES 3.0
  • Runs Android 4.4.2 Jelly Bean.

GFX Bench also tells us the graphical prowess of the Mediatek MT6595, but if you were hoping for a Snapdragon 800 killer you might want to turn away now. In the Manhattan test the MT6596 managed 398 frames (6.4fps) while it failed the more demanding T-Rex test.

On the bright side this is the first GFX test we have spotted and might just be an early version of the chip needing optimizations. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.

    Hello Andy , in the description for the Android version when you write 4.4.2 Jelly Bean … You mean 4.4.2 Kit Kat right ?

    Mediatek is impressing so much and promises this year, but if they want really be a great brand and compete with Qualcomn, will need change his policies about source codes.

    didn’t understand, if this big.little will be more powerful than octacore 1.7ghz 6592 or not? is it good to wait for the release of 6595 purely for performance or not.

      it definitely will be faster
      the 4x A17 alone could already be faster than 8x A7 and from rumors Mediatek is using the latest big.LITTLE-archticture which allows using all cores (so 4x A17 and 8x A7) altogether if demand is high

      the other point is single thread performance:
      if a given application isnt multi threaded (= not able to use more than 1 or 2 cores) the MT6592 isnt faster than a A7 dual core. with the much better ipc of the A17 MT6595 will notecably faster in single thread applications.

      but all this is about CPU performance… GFX Bench results shown here are all about GPU performance and that is enterly up to the PowerVR Rouge HAN!

        thank you for your insight. never got around to trying to understand what’s the a7 , a15 and a17 are and why a15 could be slower, than a7 too. guess then there is a point in waiting couple more months, because the launcher, the core should work much smoother, if operated by the faster cores with even more clock speed. but so tired of waiting. give me jiayu g6 6595 please))

          the way i understood it, is that ARM provides chipdesigns they come out with eg. the a7 coredesign or any other like A17 wich is a reference design of the Chip. (in comparison nvidia comes out with a reference design for its latest Titan GUP chip and graphic-card-board) other companies then have the possibillity to do some minor or major changes to this designs and adapt it to theur needs like Mediatec or samsung. using the standard A17 design is not allways the best in powerefficiency or pure maximum power. Apple uses also arm designs but they do major changes and put a lot of work hours in optimizing the design thats why the chips are so performant and need low power. Other companies dont even change a thing and just buy the readymade chips. so there are a lot of faktors in the designs … going multicore is only good if the software can use the cores i guess it will take a lot more time untill all the multicore chips can be really utilized in a practical way. its all nice to read that big antutu score. but if only antutu can use the full maximum and none of your apps then the phone is still verry slow…

    I’d love to buy this chipset, but I don’t know if I want to buy another Mediatek phone if I’m going to be stuck on an old Android.
