8-core Mediatek from 1,7Ghz: Antutu from 29.600 points!


The Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 Processor may have finally found a worthy opponent in the 8-core Mediatek MT6592!

In the last days we have read several news about the new Mediatek processors, but this is by far the most interesting and intriguing!
The image we posted is extracted from a Mediatek slide show in which the company claims that the new MT6592 is able to reach an Antutu score of 29.600 points! A harsh attack on the territory of the 800 Snapdragon, until now undisputed leader of the market! What we find even more interesting (and exciting, I would say!) Is the fact that this score refers to a CPU from 1,7Ghz, while the MT6592 is able to run up to 2Ghz !!!

Mediatek will launch the 8-core MT6592 processor along with other new chipsers later this year. For more details, take a look at the 2013 roadmap for the new Quad-core and 8-core Mediatek chipsets.
