MediaTek's MT6735 SoC beats the Snapdragon 410 chipset in benchmark tests

MediaTek's MT6735 SoC beats the Snapdragon 410 chipset in benchmark tests
A new report published today reveals some of the specs for the MediaTek MT6735 SoC. The chipset was introduced late last year and features a quad-core processor that has a clock speed topping out at 1.3GHz. The MT6735 is paired with the Mali-T720 GPU, which can support a screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution.

The MT6735 does have a couple of variants. The MT6735M and the MT6735P also come with the Mali-T720 GPU, but clocked at a lower speed. The former has a GPU that weighs in at 600MHz meaning that it can handle screens with a resolution no higher than 720 x 1280. The latter chip has a GPU clocked at 400MHz which allows it to handle screens carrying a resolution no higher than 540 x 960. All three chips support full-mode base bands such as FDD / TDD / TD-SCDMA / WCDMA / CDMA2000 and GSM.

The MT6735 SoC went through the Geekbench and GFXBench tests along with the Snapdragon 410 SoC. The Qualcomm chip also includes a quad-core CPU, but with a maximum clock speed of 1.2GHz. It employs the Adreno 306 GPU for graphics. The Geekbench test gave the MT6735 CPU a higher score in both single-core and multi-core tests. The GFXBench Manhattan and T-Rex tests revealed faster frame rates for the Mali-T720 GPU than the Adreno 306 GPU.

Thanks for the tip!

SD410 was a fail anyway,also 610 and 615....i wish SD600 was around

SD615 overheats like a b*tch. Seriously all their 64bit SoCs turned out to be failures.

actually the MTK 6752 beats the crap out of the SD 615, it's almost twice as fast 43K vs 25k in Antutu it's actually mediateks most impressive chip scores 700 in single core tests. Most chinese phones have switcehd to this chip now. it's really fast for the money. has SD 615 phones beat in every category. Qualcomm is out of breath these days , they'll continue to sell a few chips due to the erricsson lawsuit , but Mediatek is winning the war right now.

Qualcomm has the connectivity locked down, once mediatek gets that it is pretty much over. Mediatek being in Android One phones has helped them quite a bit in back end deals imo.

SD600 eats the battery like crazy.

Yup... Media Tek is improving but I still believe in Qualcomm...

I had belief in qualcomm, but not anymore they became too lazy... I hope 820 turn outs to be good..

too bad they are in big trouble from the S6 deal, i hope they dont die but idk man, we may not even see the 820 before they change everything inside the company

Qualcom is still the major player. They won't die, but if they fail to introduce sd820 in 2015 then they might be in serious troubles. Bout time qualcom pulled their act together and started making good SoCs once again.

They're massive company with lots of clients and money, 810 sells well, they won't die anytime soon.

SD820 should be good since they're ditching standard ARM architecture in favour of their own custom one (+custom cores). It worked perfectly in the past.

The device with the mediatek is tested on lollipop and snapdragon 410 is tested on kitkat the mediatek device have a new android runtime Advantage here which is optimized for 64 bit

How is this "news"? As far as I´m aware the MT6732 was already performning better than the SD410. In fact there is a regression in performance is those scores are true: Not precisely a good point for MediaTeK if we take into account that the new budget (yes, no super-mid as MediaTek claims, budget) line of Qualcomm includes the SD415 and SD425 that are far more powerful than than. In particular the SD425 should be in the range of the SD 615.

probably because they're going to be using custom cores again. so once the next gen chips come it might finally be worth upgrading, at least for me anyways

I'm not sure, but you could be confused because I did when I read the article at first. If that's the case, this is a new chip named MT6735. Different from MT6732. Came has an underclocked CPU and a cheaper GPU which is Mali-T720 instead to MT6732's Mali-T760. Seems like MT6735 will be super cheap.

I'm not confused. In fact that's what I'm saying, that MT6735 is actually a tone down MT6732. And we already know the performance of MT6732. As for the GPU is not really a cheaper one: MT6732 uses Mali-T760 MP2 MT6735 uses Mali-T720 MP4 That makes them pretty much equivalent, if not the Mali-720 a bit better. M760 cores have double the ALUs than M720, but with double the cores the M720 shold be an equal or better GPU.

Does anyone else think that mteks numbering system is hard to follow?

Mediatek have always been known for their poor GPUs, so if their low-mid range chipsets outperforms the Snapdragon 410 in graphics, something's definitely wrong

These scores are not true or to be trusted at all since the phones run on different versions of Android and different UI even so no the real results can be very different.
