We recently spotted the HTC One A9 on GeekBench and saw that it was powered by the deca-core MediaTek Helio X20 CPU and Mali-T880 MP4 GPU. The benchmark score was very high. Keeping that in mind, we have drawn up some performance comparisons between major chipsets like the MediaTek Helio X20, the Helio X10, and the Exynos 7420 that was used in Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.
The Helio X10 was beaten by the Helio X20 by a massive 40% on AnTuTu. Meanwhile, on GeekBench3, the Helio X20 got a single-core score of 70% higher than the Helio X10’s score. The multi-core score of Helio X20 was also 15% more than the Helio X10.
The Helio X20 defeated the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 in both multi-core and single-core tests. The X20 also scored higher than the Exynos 7420. We also saw an unannounced Exynos 8890 chip (codenamed Lucky, possibly Galaxy S7), which also scored below the Helio X20 with a single-core tally of 1336 and a multi-core tally of 4824. The Helio X20 scored 1835 and 5884 in single and multi-core tests respectively.
The Snapdragon 820 was also spotted in the wild, producing an AnTuTu benchmark score of 72,355 to top the results of the Helio X20 in the same test.
Looking at the benchmark tests, we can definitely say that all the upcoming devices carrying these high-end chipsets will be fast and zippy in performance. The least we can expect from the devices that carry these chips is to run smoothly without any glitches. Let’s see if that turns out to be true!
