MediaTek’s rumored MT6893 chipset that’s been doing rounds these past few days in the media shapes up to be quite the performer. The latest report comes once again from the famous Chinese tipster Digital Chat Station and claims that the SoC is faster than MediaTek’s current top-end Dimensity 1000+ chipset.
At least that’s what the single-core score suggests from the Geekbench listing. The tipster also adds that the main Cortex-A78 core is clocked at 2.8 GHz, but that might change before launch, or there will be two separate versions. The most powerful core will likely be tuned to 3.0 GHz instead of the reported 2.8 GHz. The other three Cortex-A78 cores will tick at 2.6 GHz and the energy-efficient Cortex-A55 cluster of four cores will run at 2.0 GHz. The Mali-G77 MC9 will take care of the graphically intensive tasks.
Scores from other competing SoCs
The previous report about the chip said that it would be based on Samsung’s Exynos 1080 architecture but use TSMC’s 6nm manufacturing process instead and this is further confirmed by the most recent rumor too.
