First benchmarks of new quad-core MT6589T chip surface, beats HTC One X
MediaTek is all the rage in chips recently after the company introduced its quad-core MT6589 chip a few months ago. Since then, there has been a boom of mostly Chinese made smartphones adopting that extremely affordable yet powerful chip, but for the first time it also got the attention of the big phone makers like Sony.

And now MediaTek steps up performance with the Turbo edition of the same chip squeezing out even better performance - the MT6589T. The new chip will arrive in a bunch of handsets getting released over the next couple of months but now the first benchmarks have surfaced and they are impressive.

The MT6589T-powerd UMi X2 Turbo is one of the most anticipated devices in China, and it scored a very good 14 525 on AnTuTu.

It actually appears to have beaten the Google Nexus 10 and Nexus 7 tablets in terms of performance, and that’s quite an achievement for a device that will be sold at a very affordable price.

Looking at the Galaxy S III score of around 16 000 to 17 000, the Umi device approaches it closely. And on Quadrant it even beats last year’s HTC One X. Not bad at all, is it?

that device has a 1080p screen and scoring that score having a screen resolution like that, is really great!!!!!!!!

RK3188 from rockchip is more powerful. It's in the Cube u30gt2. I have that tablet and its very fast and under $300. I'm happy with it. I wish phonearena did more stories on powerful Chinese tablets.

That one is 28nm quads paired with quad-Mali 400. I believe the RK3188 can score 18k on Antutu.

And the phone that uses this chip will probably cost under $300..
I'm happy with my dual core phone that has mediatek CPU inside it, Lenovo A800 for under $180.. And its score is close to any dual core Samsung phones.
At the same price, If I buy Samsung or Sony, I only get sh**ty single core CPU, sh**ty TFT LCD & lower battery capacity.
Mediatek isn't Chinese company, but Taiwanese..
You underestimate Taiwan? It means you underestimate TSMC & HTC.

Not bad, but still it just makes brand new chip on par with almost two years old chips from Nvidia and Qualcomm.

That benchmark score was tested when One X was launched, After the update it was jumped to 6300+. Why you hiding the facts ?
