Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 allegedly scores above 85K on AnTuTu

Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 allegedly scores above 85K on AnTuTu
Last week, the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 was introduced. Available with either Android (16GB, 64GB of internal storage) and Windows 10 (64GB version only) inside, the version of the 7.9-inch slate stuffed with Android produced a rather impressive score on the AnTuTu benchmark test. The Mi Pad 2 posted a tally of 85,101, which put it in the same rarefied air reserved for devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, the Meizu PRO 5 and the Huawei Mate 8.

The Mi Pad 2's 7.9-inch screen carries a 1536 x 2048 resolution, producing a pixel density of 326ppi. What's under the hood, you ask? How about the Intel Atom X5-Z8500 SoC, containing a quad-core 2.2GHz CPU. There is 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM inside, with a 6010mAh battery that supports fast charging. Xiaomi says that the device will play 12-hours of video on a single charge. The rear-facing camera weighs in at 8MP, with a 5MP front-facing camera available for selfies and video chats.

The 16GB version of the tablet is priced at the equivalent of $156 USD, while the 64GB model running either Android or Windows 10 will cost you $203 USD. While offering an amazing bang for the buck, the Mi Pad 2 will apparently be available only in China and in other Asian markets.

Thanks for the tip!

GPU of the Intel SoC? Too lazy to Google it tbh.

Haven't a clue. This is all I found. The HD Graphics (Cherry Trail) based on Intel's Gen8 architecture which supports DirectX 11.2 and also with the graphic solutions of Broadwell series (eg HD Graphics 5300) is used. With 12 EUs and a clock rate of up to 600 MHz performance falls though slightly lower. Depending on the benchmark is the 3D performance in about a Qualcomm Adreno 330 or PowerVR G6430 comparable. A Adreno 420 or GX6450, but Nvidia's Tegra SoCs K1 and X1 on the other hand expect faster. In Windows, users will therefore continue to be limited to very old and undemanding games, whereas modern Android games in high resolutions usually should be presented in liquid form. Videos to the GPU in 4K / H.265 can play without any problems

I just tried to Google it and all I could come up with is an integrated Intel HD GPU.

I always knew that Intel atom held something special.

Why is everyone hating so much on intel atom ...... its powering up a tablet not a pc or laptop so these scores are pretty impressive and the gpu will be very fast due to the 326 ppi ........... and these scores are being obtained by a quad core chip .... just imagine if they made an octacore chip then it would definitely cross 120k

Intel CPU tends to get heated while playing heavy games and start draining battery quickly... I under clock the CPU to solve this problem... Intel GPU is OK, because it play every games pretty fine, except over heating

I laughed when I read this comment. PPI doesn't affect the score. If this was an octacore chip with the same cores etc, it would struggle to run.

you need some tuition regarding CPU Cores and their functions.....

Why do they use Intel soc when Tegra k1 in it predecessor is already Great! X5 gpu is crappy around 170gflops same like Adreno 330

Impressive, just remember: these are AnTuTu 6 Beta scores hence the super high numbers, AnTuTu 5.x scores would be much lower but still flagship-grade. The 14nm Intel SoC is impressive.

I wish more Android manufacturers used Intel chips. I have a Zenfone 2 and it's speedy and fluid.

That atom has like 2.9k in multicore and 900 in single core in geekbench. Sorry, but that's pretty much sh*t. Also antutu is a joke, so don't take it too seriously when it comes to computing power. I've seen a lot of Chinese brands scoring high in antutu, but in real life their performance was lackluster.

chinese brand doesnt matter here, its all about processor, it will score high as long as u put best processor out there.. but for daily usage, it heavily depend on OS optimization (that most unknown chinese brand lack)

79.9k of htc m9 vs 81k of s6 proves this benchmark is unreliable. Suddenly sd810 got almost 80k down from high 50k, lol.

windows 10? what about bundle it with stylus and keyboard cover then sell it for $300? will be good enough for some productivity.. (and pro version with proper wacom-style digitizer and better processor :-/ )

Would've been a more compelling device with 4GB RAM. As much as they'd like to deny it... 2GB in Windows 10 is a major joke.

Galaxy S6 Edge - 81k, Note 5 - 83k, Is this some new version of Antutu with all devices scoring higher.

Xiaomi has created a monster of a tablet in peanut price... Good that they didnt include cellular capability, otherwise price might increase and it would drain the battery faster... using metal body is another plus point because it dissipate heat better, intel SOCs tend to heat little more than ARM chips

I wonder if Xiaomi will release kernel source code for Xiaomi Mipad 2, because they just never release the kernel source code for Mipad and the support for it is terrible!!!
