Meizu MX4 scores over 52,000 on AnTuTu

Meizu MX4 scores over 52,000 on AnTuTu
A spectacular score of 52,811, was allegedly tallied on the AnTuTu benchmark site (version 5) by the yet to be announced Meizu MX4. And this score wasn't even achieved by the high end "Pro" version of the phone that is reportedly going to be made available. The silicon employed for this task was the MT6595. This is a big.LITTLE octa-core chip from MediaTek that includes support for 4G LTE connectivity, and was running at a speed of 2.2GHz.

Other information reveals that the model producing the high tally, was the mid-range version of the MX4 that carries a 5 inch screen, with a resolution of 1152 x 1920. The top of the line version of the Meizu MX4, said to be called the "Pro," is expected to be powered by a Samsung Exynos 5 Octa CPU. That model is supposedly equipped with a 5.4 inch glass offering 2K resolution.

Meizu is holding a media event on September 2nd, at which time it is expected to unveil both variants of the Meizu MX4.  What has some smartphone fans excited about the device (apart from the tremendous AnTuTu score), are the razor thins bezels on the phone.

Thanks for the tip, Zami!

Right. Because if it had scored only 10,000, then it's relevant? Haters will always hate.

No, it's only relevant if the phone has just as good end user experience. Other than that, the score is just a score. Sort of like the car with the biggest hp doesn't mean it will win the race.

The Porsche Turbo defeats the 911.

Yes and no. It will depends on how good the drivers are. A driver is very similar to UI and software optimization in a smartphone. If they aren't well trained or well designed, you aren't going to run smoothly.

I also find it irrelevant, because Antutu is skewed toward CPU. The Mediatek MT6595 has a PowerVR 6200 in GPU, which is around Adreno 320 in power. It has 4 A17 cores, high clocked, add 4 A7 that can run in parallel and you get an excellent benchmark in Antutu, but just that. Wait till we see the "single core" performance in Geekbench and the GPU performance in GFBench. You´ll realize that it´s just similar to a Snapdragon 801 but with less GPU. Not that I´m going to complain aobut it if it´s cheap, but nothing to write home about either. An excellent SoC for mid-high range, but that´s about it.

PowerVR G6200 is way better than Adreno 320. Remember PowerVR is clocked much higher.

Sure that's why the "true octa core" mediatek BS scores about the same as a S800 yet in real life testing it runs pathetically next to the S800? Stop believing in numbers and start believing in user experience.

That version 5 of antutu. Don't compare it with v4. Exynos 5430 scores more than 50k in v5. Nothing to be surprised about.

Shouldn't our PA journalist have pointed that out

They should know since they work in tech site, so it's pretty weird. Did they not check the story before they published it? It'll be disappointing if that's the case.

Off topic: Received today an update to SGS4 kot49h.i9505xxugng8 dated on 23.07.2014 size 161MB called "improved stability". Installed and sawing a better movement inside TW and on apps specially on Chrome browser. New on this is a Samsung Link Platform Connect. BUT now the phone is blitz moving. +1 to Sammy.

Thats antutu 5.0 beta 1, I get over 43, 000 on a note 3 with snapdragon 800 (antutu version 5 uses a different engine and you get higher scores for it cause on version 4 i was only getting 37, 000 and thats with cm11)

thats surpasing note 4... but I doubt mediatek, I used a phone before with MTK and in daily routine life it really sucks... may be MT improved their new line?

At 2.2 it scores this, so what would it score if it was clocked at 2.5 , like the S801 or 805.… .? Snapdragon, you was always the under dog of Samsung.

It's octa core 2.2 GHz not quad core , it blows all quad core phone away

qualcomm is undoubtedly on the decline. they have been cooling their heels since july 2013 when the z ultra became the first device to ship with the sd800 soc. qualcomm has done literally nothing ever since. even the sd805 is a minor update & even that is available on just a couple of smartphone models limited to south korea. in the meantime, much maligned in the west mediatek have been quietly releasing some real bang for back socs like the 6589, 6582, 6592 & now the 6595. classic case of the tortoise overtaking the sleeping (literally) hare

If qualcomm didn't release anything completely new since 2013, then they work on something big, right?

What big? Their still using A9 Arm on 2013, while Mediatek and Samsung were a year advanced, using A15.

That's antutu 5 beta, so we shouldn't be excited. Even HTC one m8, xperia z2, note 3 score more than 50,000 in antutu 5.
