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.
