First MediaTek Helio P10 (MT6755) benchmarks surface


zuk z1 mini

The first benchmarks of the MediaTek Helio P10, i.e., the MT6755 have made an appearance. An unknown phone powered by the SoC was found to have been benchmarked on Geekbench.

The ‘super’ mid-range chipset from MediaTek, first announced in June, managed to score a decent 882 and 3371 points on the Geekbench single- and multi-core tests. It is important also to note that the phone (presumably a prototype) was powered by Android 5.1 Lollipop and had 2GB of RAM.

Detailed scores of the Helio P10 are as follows:

  • Integer Performance
    Single core: 1077
    Multi core: 4746
  • Floating Point Performance
    Single core: 734
    Multi core: 3106
  • Memory Performance
    Single core: 790
    Multi core: 1152

The Helio P10 comes with an octa-core processor, which in essence are two clusters of four cores each. At least one variant of the upcoming Elephone P9000 is confirmed to have the Helio P10 chip… but knowing Elephone, it could take a while to come out.

Coming back to the P10, the mid-range SoC combines octa-core goodness with various connectivity options; the SoC also has on-board support for LTE Cat 6. It also ups the MiraVision game, from version 1.0 to MiraVision 2.0.

What price would you be happy to pay for a Helio P10 phone?

    This is an interesting SOC but it remains to be seen how it will compare to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 618 and 620 which it will go against. It will loose in single core for sure since an A52 is no match for an A72 but this might be good enough if the phones are under $200… it should go into the same price range as the MT6752 and MT6753.

      It’s well bellow SD620. This one follows the older 8xA53 in sub 20$ ( this 6755 follows the 6752 and 6753) while SD620 will likely be up to 2x the price. SD620 gives you better than SD810 CPU perf and SD801 GPU perf, more or less and that comes at a cost, they won’t sell it at 15-20$. SD620 is more of a stop gap high end SoC ahead of 820, this one is midrange and will battle with SD617 and SD425. SD620 is more of a Helio X20 competitor, a fight it can’t win to be fair so it should be a bit cheaper.
      So you got P10 vs SD425 , SD617 ,then X20 vs SD620 and in the very high end SD820 vs the yet to be named 16ff Mediatek due in the first half of next year. Plus some SoCs from others.

      As realjjj pointed out the 620 isn’t going to be a mid range SoC, Qualcomm kind of fudged the numbering with that chip, it should be an 800 series chip.

    What I`m interested is the GPU score, CPU is more than fine with those numbers. It`s rumoured to be Mali 860MP2(which should offer 20-25% improved performance over Mali 760) , but we`ll have to wait and see.
