MediaTek's new MT6595 octa-core processor scores as high as 47,000 on AnTuTu, has support for advanced features
MediaTek's new MT6595 octa-core processor, about which we told you the other day, is now official, and initial benchmarks show that it's crazy fast. During the Taiwanese company's unveiling presentation, the audience was provided with an early peek at the kinds of synthetic scores it can achieve on one of the most popular benchmarking suites -- AnTuTu. That score reads over 47,000, which is far and way the highest score we've seen so far.

We still don't know exactly when manufacturers will start churning out devices with this impressive-sounding piece of hardware, though it's probably safe to say that we're still several months away from that. In any case, if MediaTek manages to price this competitively (compared with Qualcomm's Snapdragon chips), one could argue that MediaTek will be back in business with local brands that have lately resorted to Qualcomm in order to deliver true flagship experience. That's because the MT6595, apart from being the first MediaTek chip to run in a big.LITTLE formation (like Samsung's Exynos: two clusters of four cores -- four bigger (Cortex-A17) and four smaller (Cortex-A7) -- take turns handling load), the new silicon also supports FDD and TDD LTE bands, along with display resolutions up to 1600 x 2560, cameras with over 20 megapixels, 4K UHD video recording, and even slow-mo's. Finally, the MT6595 can be clocked to reach as much as 2.2GHz, and that most powerful version is the one that scored that 47,000 on AnTuTu. None too shabby, that one.

Either way, and despite our respect for what Qualcomm has been consistently achieving, we do feel like the industry could use more competition in terms of the silicon powering our flagship devices. It might just be that MediaTek is finally up for the challenge.

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 .

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.

MediaTek doing here some serious stuff. Hope it should be par with SD 800.

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.

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.

Impressive.

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.
Salt grain provided.
