And what's the harm of making affordable chipsets with reasonably good performance? Yes, Qualcomm and Samsung will make faster chipsets by then, but don't go condemning a brand which delivers good chipsets on a budget.

MTK produce a lot of chips but are by no means the best. Exynos and Apple are specific to one manufacturer but are at the top in terms of performance. I'm not saying MTK is a bad manufacturer just that they will never be the go to chip for a flagship.

Mediatek is a cheap processor, don't expect anything stellar from a cheap processor, this is like intel vs amd.
RC255, 27 Apr 2016MTK will never be a leader in chipsets, if for no other reason than the GPUs. This looks good ... moremediatek is already a leader in chipsets..... snapdragon and mediatek dominate smartphones, exynos,kirin,apple are far behind, but if you meant interms of flagship level spec ok fine but, genereally speaking they are on top
do any of these synthetic benchmarks actually reflect real life situations, i have a samsung s7edge and its a beast and with every new samsung model they top out the charts until a new device arrives a few months later, my point is well done on getting these scores but with modern phones do we even see the difference between a device that already loads INSTANTLY and a newer phone with a so called faster processor? i wish we can focus on something else to develop now, the processors and ram are way more then we need for a few years anyhow, im betting if it were possible to run ps4 games on a phone that there would just about be enough power to do it not that you would ever want to of course but are the chipsets not just SERIOUS overkill for what they are meant to run??
Anonymous, 27 Apr 2016The performance benefit is from the chip's 10nm die more than anything else. Incorrect. The difference between CPU die, are mostly more efficient and cooler.
They just bump the speed, since it will be stable.
RC255, 27 Apr 2016MTK will never be a leader in chipsets, if for no other reason than the GPUs. This looks good ... moreThey actually keep up with Kirin, both suck at GPU department, for cost management reasons. Unfortunatly.

MediaTek chipsets goes way ahead in benchmark scores. But it sometimes suck in real life performance.But still acceptable for the price they provide :)
Antutu benchmark doesn't reflect actual world performance,even so called midranger Snapdragon 650 performs better than Helio X 10..
AnonD-497261, 27 Apr 2016Lets wait until we see the ACTUAL scores before we all start throwing confete.Helio X10 has 40-50k, not 58k as stated. So 160k will around 150k Antutu.
S830 and new Exynos will probably go around 180-160k
MTK will never be a leader in chipsets, if for no other reason than the GPUs. This looks good as a projected score now, but actual scores are different and by 2017 this will be upper midrange at best. They're good at making affordable chips that can balance performance and price but cannot compete with Exynos, SD, Apple or even Kirin. We'll be seeing no flagship with this chip, just midrangers like Sony's M series or maybe Samsung's J series.

The scores on Antutu will increase on most phones, that will have Android N, and will easily surpass Apple's score performance.
