Crazy 70,000 point Antutu score from the 10 core Mediatek MT6797 posted


mediatek mt6797

Antutu isn’t everything, but a massive score of over 70,000 points is pretty phenomenal considering it comes from Taiwanese chip maker Mediatek.

Mediate are coming out with a new 10 core processor with tri-cluster architecture. We looked at the set up of the chipset earlier today, but basically the processor ramps up from 4 x A53 cores at 1.4Ghz, to 4 x A53 at 2.0Ghz before finally hitting turbo boost with 2 x A72 cores at 2.5Ghz.

The idea isn’t just to offer crazy performance but also allow the processor to switch from cluster to cluster for the best battery performance possible, but performance does appear to be on the crazy side of insane!

As Mediatek claimed, Antutu benchmarks based on the MT6797, aka Helios 20, SoC is in to the 70,000 range with this screenshot showing 70,366 points.

10 cores and tri-clusters are sure to be the tip on the iceburg for this chip, and we expect more interesting features wants the full details are made public.

    When will phones be released with this chip ? next year ?

      One article says mass production is in July, don’t know if this is true or not. If mass production is really in July, then I expect phones with that chipset in late third or fourth quarter. Maybe Meizu MX5 will have that chipset. I also wonder what chipset Xiaomi Mi5 will get.

    Are there people believe it yet?

    They’re going to have to go with a foundry that can do it on a 14nm process otherwise it’s going to be a real toaster. Even Qualcomm is turning to Samsung to produce their next gen chip so who knows, maybe MTK is next in line.

      I don’t think so. Except dual A72 part it’s pretty much mundane.

      it’s built on 20nm process according to the Chinese article. Another article say mass production is in July, don’t know if this is true or not. Not all the cores are active at once, so I don’t see much a problem there.

    Double the cores double the Antutu score. Too bad most applications will not use anywhere close to 4 cores not to mention 10.

    • April 21, 2015

      sure, apps won’t use multicore. but yeah, apps will be directed to the suitable core as the architecture says, hardcore games will use the a72 cores while small computing needs apps will use a53 instead.

      not sure why people keep thinking 8 or 10 cores are useless. even qualcomm lick their own spittle for releasing 8 cores, do you think qualcomm is stupid enough to follow mediatek?

        Because they are usles. If they have gone with 2xA72 & 4xA53 with two states for A72’s (1.6GHz & when load is above 92% enabling higher part of frequency table) & keeping A53 cluster around 1~1.1GHz I would say OK. App switching & light apps won’t use A57’s, everything else will & hardly anything more than two. Your browser is a thing that will use them most frequently. Waisted place with another A53 cluster could have been used for another GPU cluster. Task migration from one to another core is costly process in some cases not worth of spend time & certainly not worth doing two times especially switching from A72’s to higher clocked A53s. At the end power consumption curve rise linearly up to 1~1.1GHz after that it rises almost exponentially.

          16 ghz? that won’t be possible on a A72, for it will consume way too much power, and heat up.

      Antutu uses the 10 cores… but the real utilisation is : “Use cores you need”. 4 LITTLE, 4 big, 2 enormous, not all at the same time! And most of apps, will only use ONE core of the cluster.

    Bet this won’t be released till next year, hopefully I’m wrong though! I hope it’s built around a 16nm node with equally impressive GPU.

        That would be very surprising as it usually takes them around 8 months from announcing a chip to actually mass producing them. Also their leaked roadmap doesn’t have any 67xx chips due till earliest Q4. Pair this to a 6″ 4k sharp panel (purely for the hell of it) and that’s my next phone sorted! Lol

    i guess 6797 is helio 20 but 70000 dont take me back to mediatek cause of the first true octa core deception, they always get nice score on antutu but always something goes wrong with mediatek bugs, and any custoM ROM out here.

    well, the samsung s6’s exynos 7420 is can score 69000+ points in AnTuTu already, and its only got A57 cores, so this news ain’t too crazy. What can make this SoC succeed is the price. BTW Pls make the gpu at least a power vr x6450. I know its a bit to ask for, but you gotta get the gpu part straight

    We DON’T need 10 cores dear Mediatek! We NEED a strong SINGLE CORE performance!
    It’s like the war Intel vs Amd where 8 core Amd cpu still loses from a 4 core Intel CPU.

    • Alexis Paques

      Intel also have much more “technology” and experience than AMD. AMD was a newcomer, better when there were 2 cores, but slower to upgrade.
