Regarding the minimal freq 1.6Mhz, this processor is X27
Single core (email@example.com) 1492 (Helio x20 firstname.lastname@example.org returns ~1500)
Multicore (email@example.com+4xA53@2.0+4xA53@1.6) 4473 (Helio x20 firstname.lastname@example.org+4xA53@2.0+4xA53@1.4 returns ~4200)
Single core of Helio x30 will be around 2100
Helio x30 at 1.59 GHz scores more than 1500 in geekbench 4 its actual frequency is 2.8 GHz it should score more than 2200 single core geekbench 4 easily, this is initial test result don't take it seriously the lowest frequency in helio x30 is 2.0 GHz in power saving core.The real power it has to show is in lowering the battery consumption rate if mediatek manages to make battery conscious chip with more than average processing power and graphic they win.
g6 user, 22 Dec 2016your comments simply makes no sense .. apple iPhone is better just because the os is extremely... moreDidn't you read my comment? Explain to me how a worthless A9 suddendly became more powerful than SD821 and I bet even SD830/835 or Exynos 8895 in Geekbench? If you look at other benchmarks, A9 is simply pathetic in comparison.
MediaTek Claimed Flagship SoC = All-round fail.
Like someone said, wouldn't even *touch* a phone with a MediaTek SoC.
Will happily use a SpreadTrum / Exynos / Snapdragon / Kirin instead.
Mediatek to SD is like AMD to Intel (nVidia in term of GPU)...
I do hope they work much harder though, to keep SD, Intel and Nvidia honest.
Five Star, 22 Dec 2016Kirin 960 has the best GPU in any SoC released in 2016. Hardly 'trash'Not better than the one in the A10 but yeah, pretty great even if only have 8 cores.
Id way rather an exynos than a snapdragon.I think most tests showed the exy handled most things better in say the note 7 or s7e. I liked QC back in 32bit days but still not fully convinced.the 820 is a big improvement over the heat sealing 810 and performs pretty well but exy is almost as quick with better battery. I get avg of 18hrs with 7hrs sot on my note 7 that's now been barred from LTE which sucks but it'll get even better battery life. I pulled over 10hrs once with Samsung's backpack thing. The kirin has come a long way since the honor and does pretty well but still not in the same league as the others.same goes for mtk. Much better than they were a or 2 ago.
They are testing kernel to fit properly governor...
It will be 2.8ghz cortex A73...Single core will reach more than 2000pts without any problem
Even x27 with 20nm process does it better...Too early tout juste!
J o m s, 21 Dec 2016It is funny that you think A10 is that powerful just by looking at some benchmark. In GB3 all ... moreyour comments simply makes no sense .. apple iPhone is better just because the os is extremely depurated besides the a10 cores are far better than the ones we have in android other wise how come that only two cores are better in single performance that even an octacore device for mid range and it is not like name suggest octacore vs single core ... if u want smooth system single core is way to go .. and if we talk about multicore just 2 of them are enough for move everything along with good graphic card ... so why bothering with excess of ram and cores .... what if apple puts 8 cores of a10 on their iphones .... just think about it.
king901, 22 Dec 2016ok then in 1 month , the 960 will be old last year chip . thats why samsung has skipped the No... moreHe right it came out at the end of 2016 in november whereas the other chips came out at the start of the year and are already nearly a year old. Its just common sense for the kirin 960 to be better if it wasnt then Huawei definetly be doing something wrong.
Huawei can enjoy having a fast cpu till march/april and then samsung and other OEMs will have the fastest but don't worry in December 2017 maybe the Kirin 970 will arive and be at the top for a month or 2 LOL
Five Star, 22 Dec 2016Kirin 960 is better than Exynos and Snapdragon 821And im sure exynos and snapdragon this year beat the kirin 950 so whats your point?
At least they stayed at the top for a good half a year or more. The 960 will be dead within another month or 2 so keep dragging a dead horse.
Five Star, 22 Dec 2016Kirin 960 is a 2016 chip, its already out in the Mate 9! Learn your facts firstok then in 1 month , the 960 will be old last year chip . thats why samsung has skipped the Note 6 because some people are dump to know the difference .
Herodroid, 21 Dec 2016GPU is just trash in it. Slightly better cpu compared to sd 820 but trash in gpu.Kirin 960 has the best GPU in any SoC released in 2016.
Shadow Snypa786, 21 Dec 2016So true the 3 best chips are Exynos, Snapdragon and Apple chipsKirin 960 is better than Exynos and Snapdragon 821
king901, 21 Dec 2016you dnt get it , u cant compare kirin 960 with sd820..... kirin 960 uses A73 cores and g71 gpu... moreKirin 960 is a 2016 chip, its already out in the Mate 9! Learn your facts first
