MediaTek MT6592 Octa-core CPU Goes Through AnTuTu

By 09:25 Sat, 17 Jul 2021 Comments

Back in the heat of the summer MediaTek announced the world first accurate octa-core processor. Dubbed the MediaTek MT6592, it features eight Cortex-A7 Central Processing Units (CPU) cores utilizing the 28nm manufacturing process and is able to run them all simultaneously.

Now that the MediaTek MT6592 prototypes are already available, it was only a matter of time until one of them gets benchmarked. The test of choice was AnTuTu 4.0 and it gives us an overall concept of the chipset's performance.

The test was performed on a prototype running assumed octa-core Central Processing Units (CPU) operating at 1.7Giga Hertz (GHz) paired with a Mali-450 GPU, 1GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and a 720p HD display. In this configuration, the AnTuTu benchimprint suite returned a score of 25,496 points. As you can see in the chart below, that's a not too far behind the scores of the Snapdragon 800 beasts and almost on par with the HTC One rocking a Snapdragon 600.

Higher is better

  • Samsung Galaxy Note 3


  • Sony Xperia Z1


  • LG G2


  • Sony Xperia Z Ultra


  • Samsung Galaxy S4


  • HTC One


  • MediaTek MT6592 prototype


  • LG Nexus 4


MediaTek has officially confirmed that the chip can run at 2GHz. The higher frequency should be able to return more than 30,000 points, and software optimizations might assist improve the score even further, but that's yet to be confirmed and remains just a speculation at this point.

A couple of months ago elegant Qualcomm released a video bashing MediaTek's octa-core chipset, saying that it's not the number of core that matters, but their performance.

It appears Samsung doesn't share Qualcomm's view on the matter, thought, as it also announced it's working on a accurate octa-core Exynos chip. The company has confirmed it won't update the Galaxy Note 3 or the Galaxy S4 with accurate octa-core capabilities, recommending that it's probably saving it for the upcoming Galaxy S5 flagship.
