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.
