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

that device is really affordable, not like HTC one X >>>>

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.

That doesnt count for s**t if your CPU score is lower tbh.

I stopped reading after Chinese was mentioned.. So its still a good bit behind it seems, if its not close to the top I couldn't care less

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 ?
