HTC One A9 to feature MediaTek's MT6797 deca-core CPU and 4GB of RAM
posted by Alan F. / Sep 10, 2015, 12:28 PM
According to the Geekbench test, the chip scored an impressive 1835 for the single-core score, which nearly matched the 1903 tallied by the NVIDIA Tegra K1 used in the HTC built Nexus 9. On the multi-core part of the test, the MT6797 put up a figure of 5884. That tops the 5375 scored by the Exynos 7420 chipset used on the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge and the Samsung Galaxy S6.
With the Mali-T880 MP4 or MP6 GPU handling graphics, the MT6797 appears to be a monster and should fuel an interesting battle between Qualcomm and MediaTek. Smartphone manufacturers are planning to use the Snapdragon 820 in 30 upcoming models, according to Qualcomm. But it would certainly be a feather in MediaTek's cap if the MT6797 were to power the HTC One A9 in the U.S., where MediaTek has been a non-factor.
As for HTC, this phone is supposedly the handset that will wipe the memory of the HTC One M9 out of phone buyers' minds. According to the test, the handset will be the first from HTC to carry 4GB of RAM. While the general public doesn't look at things like CPUs, RAM and benchmark tests, gaining strong support from smartphone fanatics can help build a base that HTC can use to help it recover.

Nice benchmark score there. Let's see how efficient it is.

Not really, you are missing two points that make the calculation different. 1) In the 1.8 ARM probably is adding the bump in frequencies from 28 to 16nm, not only the structural changes. 2) The MaliT880MP4 in the X20 is clocked lower than what ARM suggest in 16nm (as it is built in 20nm). ARM suggest a 850MHz for the GPU, while Mediatek is clocking it a 700MHz If you take into account those two factors it will be between 20 to 30% less powerful than the MaliT760MP8 in the Exynos7420.

mediatek, sound convincing. Will go with hello X20 rather purchasing any sd810 device. Hopefully LG G4 Pro and lumia940 will come with X20

State of the art sensor is not enough they also need to put high quality lens on it and improve the image processing sw.

Bring it on! This is going to be a beast. Only thing I am concerned about is the design and I wish it doesn't has that ip6 like design.

If it is MP6 then it will match Adreno 430.

This information has been posted on PA already. I just hope HTC doesn't disappoint in design and camera. Especially design, if this iPhone look is real. Oh dear...
