MediaTek's true octa-core chip gets benchmarked again on AnTuTu35
The MT6592 is based on Cortex-A7 and uses the 28nm architecture. A prototype handset using the MT6592 clocked at 1.7GHz, featuring the Mali-450 GPU, a display with resolution of 720 x 1280, and containing 1GB of RAM, was clocked at 25,496 on AnTuTu 4.0. That fails to top benchmark numbers for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 800. The top clock speed for the MT6592 is 2.0GHz and a score above 30,000 would undoubtedly accompany a boost to that level. Earlier this Summer, the MT6592 did cross the 30,000 threshold on the AnTuTu test and while the speed of the silicon was unknown, it would appear that the chip used for that test had a clock speed at or close to the 2.0GHz max.
