GPU not so powerful, Mali T880 create 28.9gflops per core, so if four core is 28.9 x 4 = 115.6gflops. Exynos 5430 with Mali T628 MP6 can doing 115.2gflops.
The processor race seems to become more pointless. Mobile are powerful enough already . They need to look for other areas for some functionality improvement.
A race for better battery life would be really good. Companies should increase their battery research budget at-least a 100 times.
Hope sometime in the near future, phones come with a week or a month battery-life rather than a day.

This one well im not sure how this race is helpfull to anyone.
still don't get why they're pushing more cores than are even pushed on the desktop. it's the megapixel race all over again.
dual penta hexa octa deca dodeca and so on blah blah blah............ :-/
Where will it end ? We already have super computers in our hand....Super fast mobiles... to do what ?
To play games watch movies ? Surf internet...?
Innovative devices, Sooper-Dooper Benchmarks...... No serious Usage...
I'm still wondering what sense does it make to pack 3 different sets of A53 cores, that differ only on clock. WHY CAN'T THEY VARY THE CLOCK AND THAT'S IT!
I really can't see a reason for this. If it's voltage, then well, my PC does this all the time automatically, I see no reason why on the fly voltage control wouldn't be implemented on a phone (and as far as I know it is so...)
False Info, Manufacturing process of snapdragon 810 is 20nm where as 820 is 14nm which is being manufactured with the help of samsung. But really this Helio X30 is much impressive than i thought.
DantE O2, 04 Aug 2015"The Helio X30 will be manufactured on a 16nm FinFet process, which is better than Snapdr... moreBoth MediaTek and Qualcomm are fabless. They both hire TSMC to print their chips. So that's entirely depend on whatever TSMC is ready for mass production in 16nm.
"The complete breakdown goes like this: 2x Cortex-A53 at 1.0GHz, 2x Cortex-A53 at 1.5GHz, 2x Cortex-A53 at 2.0GHz and 4x Cortex-A72 at 2.5GHz." If I counted correctly that would sum to 12-cores (i.e. dodeca-core). Please verify as that would be a totally different story. Right?
I'v done some googleing and most specialized websites say that the SnapDragon 820 ditched the 20 nm architecture and the samples sent to OEMs are in 14 nm process.
"The Helio X30 will be manufactured on a 16nm FinFet process, which is better than Snapdragon 820's 20nm process, but slightly behind Samsung's 14nm FinFet process for the Exynos 7420"
!!!!!!!!!!! what !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the nm only indicates the size of a single transistor & nothing else, we should look in benchmarks to see which one performs better not just look at the size of their transistors- the smaller they are the less heat they create & less power they consume in general but that shows nothing about their performance still,

Mediocre CPU, but very high amount of underclocked GPU core, making it very powerful. MediaTek goes different, yet useless way - CPU power, yet very poor GPU.
Finally, I have been waiting for deca-core processor. More powerful smartphone. Dual core is officially out of the picture. Octacore should become a mid range by 2016. Hoping for a better future in our ever advancing world.
mediatek is great for low - mid range devices
but for flagship devices their GPU's suck
