slowest chip manufacturer is scoring the highest score... thats not bad

It is good news since we (consumers) need more competition between SoC manufacturers. :)

No...it's not promising...it's very misleading...that high score is achieved with 8 cpu cores running simultaneously...in real world that won't be the case...you'd barely find 4 active cpu cores under load conditions.
SOC manufacturers need to stop cheating people and make high performing 2 core solutions with cores like cyclone and denver...that'd ensure best performance for users...not 8 core solutions.

".in real world that won't be the case...you'd barely find 4 active cpu cores under load conditions."
It depends on how apps and OS manages multitasking.

not really android under load ( chrome and other process in the background ) constantly switched between 3 to 2 cores because chrome and browsers in general are highly multithreaded because they have to load different elements oaf the webpage all at once.I think increasing per core performance will result in a faster device for most situations .

Fisrt of all what wrong or incorrect I have said?
"because chrome and browsers in general are highly multithreaded because they have to load different elements oaf the webpage all at once."
Yes, I very well known that.
"I think increasing per core performance will result in a faster device for most situations."
Slow single core will not be able to process many tasks at the same time. Tasks will stand in to the "line" and it will generate lag so it is not good! One of the solutions is to increase frequency. After increasing frequency tasks will be performed faster and "line" will be shorter or maybe even there will be no line at all which means there will be less lag or maybe even no lag. But there is one big problem, single core running at very high frequency generates a lot of heat and eats a lot of power and that's mean that such solution is not good! That's why in these days CPUs has more than one core.

You are absolutely right but there is a point of diminishing return .
apart from chrome how many apps can use 3 or more cores?
now for apps that use 2-3 cores increasing per core performance but improving the architecture will be more beneficial than slapping on low power cores .

Snapdragon 400>>Mediatek octa core

Is that really reliable? I mean real life experience is still the ice breaker here. Anyways kudos to MT, hopefully it'll not explode to someone's hand.

in power management no but in performance yes. its the oems fault that they lag because cheap phone makers dont take timw to optimize hw and sw

Mediatek octa core????????Snapdragon 400/615/800
We need to wait and see real world performance, battery efficiency and thermals before jumping to conclusions (same for the K1, A8 and Samsung's new Exynos)

are you serious..? in terms of raw performance, Meidiatek is always ahead, but their GPS and radio are not integrated properly thus ruining experience.

A15 is truly powerful soc.
It took Oems 3years to migrate to A15, from A9.
Only clocked at 2.2ghz.

I'm Not sure if they've cheated or not,Either way,Good effort MediaTek,Good effort..

MediaTek doing here some serious stuff. Hope it should be par with SD 800.
6. timukh (Posts: 291; Member since: 04 Feb 2013)
Currently the only thing in which they are laggin behind is the power management! SD chips are more power efficient which puts them one step ahead.

What's the point in sacrificing power over battery.?
I would take speed then saving battery.
26. pulkit1 (Posts: 354; Member since: 03 Jul 2014)
Working phone is better then a phone with 0 battery besides there is only so much power you need atm.

hopefully gps/radios are good, then we have some real competition

If mediatek become succesfull with this CPU, then 2015 will be interesting.

MT is growing fast and but now i perfer Qualcomms SoCs.
12. Planterz (Posts: 1973; Member since: 30 Apr 2012)
Just like AMD and Intel need each other, Quallcomm needs a good company to keep them on their toes. One would expect Nvidia, but MT is looking like they're ready to compete at the top level, and not just with low-to-mid-range devices.

Which version of Antutu is used though?
X, which gives a accurate test.
V5 which has inflated scores.
Or earlier V4 that was easily duped.
I suspect V5, on X my stock N5 hits 35k, on V5 I hit 40k plus, so yeah.

Allwinner octa core processor score more than 48000
