MediaTek Helio X25 Manages to Outperform Kirin 950 in AnTuTu Benchmarks
Benchmark score have always had a swung audience while most of them swore by it many of them debunked the relevance of the same. We agree while Benchmark score is not all it takes to decide the best phone it is still a relevant piece of information, much like a cars horsepower. As we were talking about the Meizu Pro 6, the first phone to be powered by the MediaTek Helio X25, it seems that the Pro 6 has already made it to the AnTuTu benchmarks.
The Meizu Pro 6 has reportedly managed to score a whopping 99,948 AnTuTu score. While this score is indeed impressive we need to understand how the Helio X25 fares against the other flagship chips. While the Helio X25 leaves behind Kirin 950 it is still lags behind the Snapdragon 820 and the Exynos 8890, perhaps something that has to do with the GPU. The Huawei Mate 8 powered by the Kirin 950 SoC scored 94,250.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge with Snapdragon 820 tops the benchmarks chart with a 132,849 score while the Exynos variant still manages an impressive 129229. Now this reminds me how just a couple of years ago Samsung Galaxy Note 3 topped the benchmarks scoring a fraction of the current benchmarks. On a related note it is very likely that the production model would score lesser owing to the software overlay and many other factors.
The Meizu Pro 6 is expected to pair up with a 3GB of RAM and 32GB of Internal storage. The display is most likely to be a 1080p unit which is something that might have helped the device achieve the score. The Helio X25 is a deca core chipset manufactured on the 16Nm process and it is expected to power the devices until its succeeded by the much awaited Helio X30 in early 2017.
