Will the Meizu MX6 be the first phone carrying the MediaTek Helio X20 SoC and its deca-core CPU?
A post on AnTuTu's Weibo page (which was subsequently removed), contained some information about the Meizu MX6. According to AnTuTu, the MX6 will be the first phone powered by MediaTek's Helio X20 SoC and its deca-core CPU. The chip also comes with the Mali-T880 MP4 GPU. Last month, the chipset went through the Geekbench benchmark test, and broke the record for the multi-core score with a tally of 7037.

The Helio X20 features a pair of Cortex-A72 cores running at 2.5GHz, four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2GHz, and four more Cortex-A53 cores with a clock speed of 1.4GHz. This is what MediaTek calls a "Tri-Cluster" build.

As for the Meizu MX6, it will have a screen of unknown size, with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. 3GB of RAM is inside (the Helio X20 doesn't support any more), along with 32GB of native storage. Android 6.0 is pre-installed with Meizu's Flyme UI running on top.

The Meizu MX6 will be launched later this year which means we could see another handset make it to the market first with the Helio X20 SoC inside. Right now though, it seems that the smart money is going with the MX6.

Thanks for the tip!

Exynos 8870 please...........
Even the Exynos 7420 is still better than X20.

Nah, I think the PRO 6 will rock Exynos 8870.

l think you're right, damn l miss the time when Meizu is using top of the line Exynos chipset on the MX series.

The Pro 5 Used The 7420.

I doubt the Exynos 7420 is better than the X20.
My expectations is that it will be in the same range, with the X20 hanving better CPU performance but worse GPU performance.
All in all a good competitor to the Kirin 950, but short of the E8890 or the SD820.

Yes, the MT X20 have a better CPU, but you can't tell the differences in real life. So the GPU is the only thing that matters now.

In this case you are hardly going to see a lot of difference in GPU either.
Check the Anandtech article about the Huawei Mate 8 (same GPU):

Hardly see a difference? It's as fast as Adreno 418 which wasn't the fastest in the 2015, not to mention 2016.

Also, the t880 is clocked quite a bit lower in the X20 than the Kirin950. Its going to have similar performance to Adreno 330...

It may be the case, but I would rather hold any hard opinion till we get the first benchmark results.

He was comparing the chip with the Exynos 7420, which is marginally more powerful in GPU than the Adreno 418.

on screen performance dude, it runs a 1080p panel and offers quite competitive GPU performance @ 1080p and also offers fantastic sustained performance as it throttles very little, why don't you just read what he linked?

as for the X20, not 100% sure yet gotta wait for more details

The T-880 MP4(X20,K950) Isn't Better Than The T-760 MP8(E7420) On The Same Screen Resolution The T-760 Would Win Every Time.

So, what´s your point? That´s exactly what I said.

E7420 is a lot faster than A418 lol. It is faster than A430.

May be we can differ of what you consider A LOT.
And it is just around as fast as A430, it depends on the device and the test.

anyway you have to deal with reality where adreno does not shine.

Putting an T880 MP4 in a powerful chip is useless should be a MP12

Mediatek need to reduce the production cost, so they use 20nm mfg process and put the T880 MP4.

10. TylerGrunter (Posts: 1522; Member since: 16 Feb 2012)


Are you sure it is 20nm? Because that would really worry me with all the competitors moving to 14/16nm FinFET.
The 20nm node seems to be quite a failure...

12. may_czos (Posts: 736; Member since: 22 Nov 2014)


It's 20nm because it's cheaper and they want to keep the price low. It's stil la progress because all other MT SoCs are made in 28nm process.

I think MP12 would be too much, too power hungry. Don't for get that speed doesn't simply add up. I think MP8 is a sweet spot.

I would prefer the Samsung chip too, but not for speed, the Helio X10 or X20 are fast enough for me. No, my worry is battery life. Samsung provides great battery life while the Helio X10 is a battery killer, so let's hope the X20 is better in this department.

Yes me too, Mediatek CPU are now very powerful no doubt about that. But compare to Exynos regarding the Battery life, I'll choose Exynos.
Just look at the Pro 5, with just 3050mah on a 5.7" screen, it has an amazing battery life.

Wait,wouldnt be better if MTK has chosen combination of 2x A72+4x A57+4x A53?

Helio X20 supports up to 4GB of RAM not 3
