Leaked Meizu MX5 Geekbench result hints at impressive multi-core CPU performance
It looks like Meizu can't keep the upcoming Meizu MX5, a smartphone that is scheduled to be unveiled next week on June 30, from leaking everywhere you look online. Just yesterday, a leaked GFXBench result revealed most of the smartphone's specifications, and confirmed that the Meizu MX5 will be based on the MediaTek MT6795T SoC, a chip that's also known as the Helio X10. Today we're here to discuss a series of leaked Geekbench results, ones that hints at the raw performance of the upcoming smartphone.

As many geeks already know, Geekbench is a benchmark tests that determines the performance of the CPU. According to a series of leaked results, the MediaTek Helio X10 inside the Meizu MX5 packs some serious multi-core performance. The results show that the Meizu MX5 scores about 5200 points in multi-core tests, a score that's up there in the high-end segment, topping the average score of the Samsung Exynos 7420 that powers the Galaxy S6 series.

Apparently, the 'true octa-core' setup of the Helio X10 allows it to flex all of its eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores when the task demands it, leading to great multi-core performance. On the downside, single-core performance is not as good. The leaked Geekbench results point out to scores of about 970 points, 500 points lower than what the Exynos 7420 can do when it's flexing one of its ARM Cortex-A57 cores. Interestingly, these results indicate a performance that's a bit better than what the Helio X10-powered HTC One M9+ achieves.

Unfortunately, although multi-core performance certainly helps towards the real-world performance of a handset, single-core number crunching remains the governing driver. Take this under consideration before getting too excited about the observable performance of the MT-6795T-powered Meizu MX5.

That's Exynos 7420 Levels man. Can't wait, I knew the MTK6795 would be a strong-a** CPU.

Single core and especially GPU performance is nowhere near the Exynos. It's closer to two year old devices. Yes, last years M8, S5 or Z3 have better GPU. Even budget Sony E4g is better for gaming!

But still helio has an quite energy-efficient gpu setup and the performance will be more than enough to play all android games currently available. Though a mali gpu would probably been better.

Games currently available? Barely at most. Next years games can be too much. That's not what you want to expect from a flagship device. Mali wouldn't be better because Mediatek uses weak Mali GPUs.

The mali T760 is'nt weak if they would use a version with more cores. Current mediatek chipsets use only dualcore T760 but if i recall correctly its possible to have up to 16 cores.

gaming gaming c'mob those boring F2p games are hardly worth buying a smartphone for , any of the popular games like Candy crush work fine even on lesser chips , no need for better gaming Gpus it's all F2P crapware just look a MKX for mobile a jokfest of swipes rather than deep gameplay of the PC version. most of these games need internet to play to , which is another prob when there's no wifi why waste Bandwidth on these shallow games. If you want real gaming play real games via steam or a PS4 not smartphone games , I was a into smartphone gaming at on point but C'mon it's not worth the effort anymore. Everything is becoming F2p rubbish thats developed in a few weeks rather than years.

exactly smartphones are for casual games , no need for better GPUS , the chip wars have become like megapixel race only to please the Show offs and bechmarks nothing of real value other than show off. I'd rather some manufacturer have the balls to focus on batterylife and underclock the chips to score 20% lower in benchamrks and get 50% better batterylife.

That single core score is laughable considering my LG G2 gets a 924 in Geekbench. Like the article said, most apps only really leverage 1 core.

And my M9 gets 1000 single core even when at 39-40℃

Android authority posted a good article the other day about core usage which dispelled the myth that most apps Only take advantage of a single core. Android from the ground up is built around multi core and all 8 will be used in any app. If they used a much better gpu this would be a killer processor.

Probably take another 5 years for Mediatek gpus to catch up, if not longer.

Typical Mediatek. Good multi-core performance and ... nothing more.

Good pricing??

I don't think that their flagship SoC is significantly cheaper than its counterparts from Qualcomm, Intel or Samsung.

the multi core means nothing imo the important number is the signal core because most apps can only use one core

A myth dispelled many years ago. Even my old S2 would use both cores most of the time. Even if apps don't specifically ask for it the Linux kernel already divides tasks. And now tasks are even split to divide workload. http://www.androidauthority.com/fact-or-fiction-android-apps-only-use-one-cpu-core-610352/

I was going to bring this up but I was lazy and why we should try to inform people, it's out there in the internet they can go find out themselves or lose their money on +600$ flagships while this 290$ phone can do the job easily...
