Possible Helio X30 Benchmark Scores Spotted

by Jed John 10

MediaTek announced its next generation Helio X30 flagship chip about four months back but since then nothing has been heard about the processor built on a 10nM manufacturing process. But presently, a pictorial data said to be the Geekbench posting of the MediaTek Helio X30 has surfaced.

The Helio X30 is said to come with a deca-core design and perhaps for the purpose of the test and the machine is it infused into, the chip was clocked at 1.59GHz while providing the interface is Android Nougat 7.0 and there is a 6GB RAM backing the processor.

We are not so sure, though, that this is actually MediaTek’s X30 chip onboard the device as it only managed to pull a single core test score of 1504 points. On the multi-core test, it recorded a score of 4666 points. Now, that is way lower than the scores posted by its contemporaries, talking about the Qualcomm Snapdagon 821 and Huawei’s latest HiSilicon Kirin 960.


If actually, it is indeed an Helio X30 chip onboard, then this isn’t its normal level. When MediaTek announced the flagship chip few months back its configuration include being a deca-core chipset and having the same tri-cluster design in series like Helio X20 and Helio X25. The X30 is manufactured using TSMC’s 10nm FinFET process and talking about cores, there are 4 Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.8GHz, which is claimed to maul down heaviest of tasks, 4 Cortex A-53 cores clocked at 2.2GHz, and 2 Cortex A-35 cores clocked at 2GHz. Compared to the Helio X20 is comes with up to 53% improvement in power consumption and 43% performance improvement.

In addition, the Helio X30 is touted to support camera sensors up to 40MP and video capture up to 24MP. Further, Helio X30 will support up to 8GB of RAM further supporting LPDDR4 (Package-On-Package) POP 1600MHz channels. It is further equipped with PowerVR 7XT quad-core GPU. This graphic engine will highly enhance the graphic performance and will be perfect for VR as well. The Helio X30 will also support LTE CAT 12.

The chipset isn’t expected to ship until sometime next year and we can expect some devices to show up powered by this chipset in the second half of 2017.  Perhaps when that happens, we’ll get to see the true fire power of the Helio X30 but for now, we’ll take this alleged Geekbench posting with a pinch of salt.

    Weak. Seriously, what’s wrong with Mediatek.

      Don’t rush to make a judgment. It’s just a development board. In coming months surely we will see much better scores.

      If Kirin 960 scores around 2000 at 2.3GHz and 16nm, a 2.8GHz 10nm Cortex-A73 easily will surpass it.

      On the other hand I’m expecting them to underclock both CPU and GPU, and 2.8GHz one might be called Helio X35 just like they did with X20/25.

        Ok. Let’s hope they meet up.

    • This is not Helio X30, simple as that.

      • Guaire

        Most likely it is. You can search a known X27 device like Umi Z at Geekbench 4 database. Seems like code name for X27 is MT6797X. When you search for MT6797X you get bunch of other results from LeEco LEX650 and another development board.

        • X30 will have much bigger scores, could also be P30.

          • Rob

            This is early silicone with low clocks so could easily be the X30 as they would have to start testing engineering samples now for a release in the next 6 months or so.

          • Riccardo Benzoni

            it’s reported on the test that it’s underclocked at 1586MHz

  • Karly Johnston

    What is the Antutu score?

  • It’s probably X27, which is based on the old X20 architecture.
    X30 should have multi-core score above 6000.
