Let’s take a look back and remember why the Taiwanese manufacturer refers to its MT6592 as the first ‘real’ eight-core processor. In the first place because it is their own product and if they do not sell it to us themselves, who would do it, right? On the other hand, they talk about the first ‘true’ octa-core chipset because it would be the first in which its eight cores could work simultaneously, not like it happens in Exynos 5 Octa in which only four of its eight cores work at the same time. Let us also remember that MT6592 of MediaTek is based on ARM Cortex-A7So let’s not expect stat-breaking returns Or maybe yes? Let’s take a look at them.
Evaluation of the results of the MediaTek MT6592 in the benchmarks
As you have seen in the previous capture, the new processor of MediaTek has reached the 25,496 points running at 1.7 gigahertz next to a GPU Mali-450 and with a configuration also composed of a gig of RAM and 720p HD display.
It is true that the result of MT6592 stays away from 36,959 points obtained by the Xiaomi Mi3 whose record we spoke to you recently or other figures such as 36,887 that came to mark the Sony Xperia Z1. It also does not reach the results of other devices such as Samsung Galaxy Note 3 which you can see in the comparison that we offer below, what is true is that the levels reached by the processor MediaTek they do not have much to envy to those of several devices equipped with chipsets Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and would be practically equal to those of the HTC One – which has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 -.
On the other hand, it should be noted that MediaTek has officially confirmed that the MT6592 is capable of operating at a maximum clock speed of two gigahertz with which, accompanied by suitably optimized software, there is no doubt that would be able to exceed 30,000 points. Despite this, this forecast is still speculation on our part, however plausible it may seem.
Beyond the test results, some details should be rethought, for example, if MediaTek opted for him MT6592 by the nuclei ARM Cortex-A7 – instead of more powerful ones like Cortex-A15 – for joining a more than decent performance with lower energy consumption Does what is seen in these benchmarks mean that the processor of the Taiwanese firm you will be able to match the power of the competition but with less battery consumption? If so, we would be talking about MediaTek has managed to score a great goal Qualcomm – Will they still want to tease? – already Samsung. The difference between possibility and certainty will only be determined by time, so let’s be patient and stay tuned.
