Exynos 980, Mediatek MT6885 appear on AnTuTu, both yield impressive results

Yordan, 11 December 2019

Mediatek and Samsung have introduced 5G modems and SoC that go with them, but we are yet to see them in actual smartphones.

Today both the MT6885 and the Exynos 980 popped up at the Chinese benchmark website AnTuTu, revealing impressive scores - the Mediatek one gathers about 380,000, while the Samsung one is just past the 326,000 threshold.

The results might look impressive on their own, but when we put actual phones on the market in comparison, their superiority quickly diminishes.

However, a comparison with a device that is running a Snapdragon 855+ wouldn’t be fair to Mediatek and Samsung, since they want to make the best 5G chipset out there without breaking the bank.

The Mediatek MT6885 could be compared with the Kirin 990 in the Huawei Mate 30 (in Performance Mode), while Exynos 980 is undoubtedly not a flagship chipset - it is a dedicated platform for 5G purposes.

The vivo X30 (or more precisely the V1938T phone by vivo) could be compared in raw results with the Google Pixel 4 XL or the Huawei Mate 30 Pro without any boosters, but they are all targeted at different markets.

I don't think a kind of "Helio A" 5g soc will exist : - it's 5 or 6 dollars soc - modem size will multiply cost by 2 - heating problem on 5g modem will force to use 7nm process and raise costs even more. - little cores won't be enough to take...
